2673034 - Previous Year/Current Year Depreciation is Wrongly Posted to Accumulated Depreciation G/L Account

Symptom

Previous Year/Current Year is wrongly posted to Accumulated Depreciation G/L Account in the Fixed Asset Migration with Extended template.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Business Configuration Work Center.
  2. Go to the Implementation Projects View.
  3. Select respective Implementation Project and click Open Activity List button.
  4. Go to the Integrate and Extend tab.
  5. Search and open the activity Migration of Accounting Transaction Data.
  6. Click Migrate accounting transaction data using the migration tool.
  7. Select the respective Migration Unit.
  8. Click Execute Migration button.
  9. Select Fixed Assets and click Process File button.

In the Cross Check Balances step, Previous Year and Current Year migration is being posted to Accumulated Depreciation G/L Account, while the expected is Profit and Loss account (P&L).

Cause

Depreciation postings regardless of previous year/current year are posted into a balance sheet account which in this case is the Accumulated Depreciation, rather than P&L, as it should be a balance.

Resolution

When the assets are already in the system and daily postings, such as manual depreciation, depreciation runs, and so on, start taking place, the P&L Depreciation accounts will be used. So, the system behavior is correct in this case.
