2490222 - Additional Explanation to SAP Note 2220152: Alternative Fiscal Year Variant / Parallel Valuation / Period Determination / Reporting


To be able to portray the data of an alternative fiscal year variant in your system you have assigned your parallel valuation (accounting principle) two ledgers, a representative ledger which has assigned the fiscal year variant of the leading valuation (=leading ledger) and a non-representative ledger which has assigned an alternative fiscal year variant.

  • Additional explanation is required regarding the customizing and the assignment of an alternative fiscal year variant to the non-representative ledger for a parallel valuation as outlined in SAP Note 2220152 - Ledger approach and Asset Accounting (new): Alternative fiscal year variant for parallel valuation.
  • The asset values including depreciation is not displayed in the Asset Explorer (transaction AW01N) from the alternative fiscal year variant of the non-representative ledger for a parallel valuation (and according to the accounting priciple assigned in the relevant depreciation area).
  • Instead it is the fiscal year variant (FYV) of the representative ledger of the parallel valuation that is represented in the planned depreciation periods as seen in the Asset Explorer. This is correct, but often thought to be a mistake or a system error.
  • An expectation and perception is that the depreciation area assigned to a parallel accounting principle and with a non-fiscal year variant should be reflected with the posting periods of the alternative FYV: this is not the case in the Asset Explorer and in FI-AA Reporting.
