ABAA - AFAR : Unplanned Depreciation - Recalculation of Depreciation

ABAA - Unplanned Depreciation
There is an unexpected permanent reduction in the worth of the asset that you have to post as unplanned depreciation.
As a rule, the system automatically determines the planned depreciation for the current fiscal year by means of the depreciation keys entered in the master record. If you need to specifically set the amount of depreciation, the system offers a manual unplanned depreciation forecasting option. This means you can manually increase the planned values managed for the asset.The G/L accounts in Financial Accounting are not initially affected by this posting transaction. Asset line items are created, but no FI posting documents. The general ledger accounts are updated and the corresponding FI documents are created by the periodic depreciation posting run. The system then determines the depreciation to be posted up to a specific period, and creates the accompanying posting documents.
Transaction type - 640 : Unplanned depreciation on prior year acquistions
During posting system automatically calcualtes the depreciation in different amounts for different depreciation areas.
After posting you can see the same in AW01N in Planned values section under 'change' column against Unplanned depreciation
AFAR - Recalculation of Depreciation
This might be necessary if:
· You have changed depreciation keys.
· You have made mass changes that you programmed yourself, and these changes affected data relevant to depreciation.
· You want to calculate subsequent revaluation (after the legacy data transfer is closed) using current index figures. In order to correctly calculate replacement values, however, you can only use index series that calculate historically.
This program enables you to recalculate planned annual depreciation using the depreciation terms that are valid at the time that you start the report. You can also run the report in test mode. However, you can only recalculate planned depreciation for fiscal years that are still open. After the system recalculates the planned annual depreciation, it creates a statistical log with the total number of assets processed and the number of assets with errors. You can check the assets with errors using the asset value display transaction.
