Hi all, anyone has an idea to use Asset module(Version7)?
What the effect i need is: Linear computation
First depreciation date is same as purchase date
First depreciation amount to last depreciation amount are all same and equal to asset amount/number of depreciation
How to configure properly to get this effect as above? hope my question is clear, thank you very much!
To get the effect of 'first depreciation date is same as purchase date', you must check Prorata Temporis because it will indicates that the first depreciation entry have to be done from the purchase date instead of the first period/fiscal year.
Since you choose the linear computation method, the amount will all be the same from the first depreciation until the last depreciation, because the linear computation will divide total amount depreciation with number of depreciation equally.
If you want your first depreciation date is same as purchase date then you need to have the boolean Prorata Temporis checked. For equal computation use method linear
Note: You want have the equal amount when " Prorata Temporis checked.Reason is the calculation is done on days. Means the First depriciation amount will be splitted between First and last year.
For eg: Your purchase date is 18/04/2013 then the amount will be deducted from first depreciation value for 107 days approx i.e (1/1/2013-17-04-2013)and will be calculated for 18/04/2013-31/12/2013 for first year. Say you have 600000 as deprecation amount for 3 yrs. So 600000/3 = 200000 so each year you have 2 lakh as amount to be depreciated. So in this case you will have 200000-(200000/365)107 as first depreciation amount.for second and third you will have 2 lakh for the last is remaining one i.e (200000/365)107
Hope this helps !
