3220479 - Depreciation starts in wrong period S/4HANA CLOUD


An asset under construction (AuC) has been fully transferred at the end of the month to a fixed asset and the system starts the depreciation calculation only in the following period. Depreciation key is LINS.

Changing the 'Depreciation start date' field does not help.




The Acquisition value was taken over from an Auc with Asset transaction type 310 (Acquirg transfer of prior-yr acquis) which is a transfer posting.

Depreciation key LINS handles transfer with control 02 - Pro rata upto mid-period at period start date. Check further details within App Depreciation Key: Display Details.


This is the standard system design. Every delivered depreciation key available in S/4HANA CE are configured based on Accounting principles.

As a workaround the transfer should be executed in the first half of the month or a different depreciation key can be used (which handles Transfers with control 01 - Pro rata at period start date).
