Depreciation Calculation to Exact Day

Specifies that the  system calculates depreciation to the day.


Any period control methods entered in the depreciation key are ignored for the entire useful life of the asset. This applies to all transactions (acquisitions, retirements, and transfers). The system always uses the asset value date as the depreciation start date.

The "depreciation to the day" function becomes active for an asset as soon as the asset has a corresponding depreciation key and the asset is capitalized (posted to). Once this takes place, it is no longer possible to switch off this function for the asset, even if you change the depreciation key. On the other hand, it is not possible to activate this function for an asset after it has already been capitalized using a different depreciation key.


See above.
