3155725 - Migrated Fixed Asset not included in depreciation for month it was migrated


You have migrated a Fixed Asset on 01.04.YYYY, in period YYYY.004 and you expected this Fixed Asset to be included in the Depreciation run for that month. However the Fixed Asset was not included in the depreciation run.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Fixed Asset work center.
  2. Select the view Fixed Asset.
  3. Search and find Fixed Asset XYZ (XYZ represents the Fixed Asset ID).
  4. Go to the Values tab.
  5. Go to the Depreciation tab.
  6. Here we can see that the first depreciation was completed on the YYYY.005

As the migration was completed on the 1st of the month, in period YYYY.004 you expect the first depreciation to be completed in period YYYY.004.


The migration Journal entry was posted in 01.04.YYYY, in period YYYY.004. The system expects this to include all the depreciation up to and including this month. Hence first depreciation would be in the next period YYYY.005


This is standard system behavior.

However, there is 1 scenario where the depreciation will post in the same period.

If the migration is completed in the first period of the year, the depreciation will start from that period but in almost every other case it will start from the next period.
