3410378 - The capitalization date is unexpected after posting Initial acquisition value - SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Symptom

After posting Initial acquisition value, the capitalization date displayed in the Fixed Asset Management app is unexpected.

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

1. Open Post Asset Acquisition app.

2. Enter journal entry date, posting date, asset value date(optional) and other required fields.

3. Click post button.

4. Check the capitalization date is unexpected in Manage Fixed Assets app.

Cause

If the capitalization date is not set in the asset master record after the initial acquisition, or if this date is not in the current fiscal year, the system determines the default value for the asset value date as capitalization date.

Resolution

1. If the capitalization date is set in the asset master, the capitalization date will not be changed by other posting.

2. If the asset value date is input, the system will use the date as the capitalization date.

3. If the document date (journal entry date) and the posting date are both in the same (current) fiscal year, the system uses the smaller of these two dates as the default asset value date and consequently the capitalization date.

4. If the document date (journal entry date) is in a past fiscal year, the system uses the posting date as the default asset value date and consequently the capitalization date.
