2133631 - Subseq. Acquisition Not Permitted In Calc.Proc


You have posted a Low-Value Asset (LVA) using procurement process already. Now you want to post additional acquisition costs for the LVA, by posting a new goods and service receipt for the same individual material.

GSR is showing as unposted due to error message Subseq. Acquisition Not Permitted In Calc.Proc

Reproducing the Issue

  1. In the General Ledger work center, choose the Closing Cockpit view.
  2. Select the Source Documents subview.
  3. Show Unposted Source Documents.
  4. Select the not posted goods and services receipt document in question.
  5. Choose View Business Transaction, you can see the same error message: Subseq. Acquisition Not Permitted In Calc.Proc



The inital acquisition post has been created in a previous fiscal year than the new acqusition posting. By default Low-Value Assets are created with the depreciation method L200 - Str.-line 20% LowValueAsset.  Therefore low value assets are being fully depreciated in the fiscal year of their acquisition. Subsequent acquisitions can only be made within this fiscal year.



The ideal way would be to cancel the goods receipt and to not go ahead with the posting:

  1. Cancel the goods receipt.
  2. The cancellation document will also appear as unposted source document in the Source Documents view of the General Ledger workcenter.
  3. Highlight the cancellation and press Actions - View business transaction.
  4. In the next screen press Mark as Irrelevant.
  5. This will mark the goods receipt cancellation as well as its original as irrelevant for accounting

If you need to go ahead with the posting you could change the depreciation method of the fixed asset temporarily, to, for example L010 - Str.-line from acq.value to 0. But this is not recommended.
