You can calculate depreciation for fixed assets with an Openstatus for periods in which depreciation has not yet been posted.


Depreciation amounts are calculated according to the following formulas:

  • Depreciation amount for a period = (Net book value * Percentage) / (100 * Period type).

  • Depreciation amount for non-cost part = Cost limit * Depreciation amount for period / Net book value.

    Journal lines are created with a depreciation transaction type according to the number of depreciation periods in the calculating interval. If the cost limit amount is set for the value model, transactions with a non-cost part type are generated.

    This amount will be adjusted further with the non-cost part amount.

  • Depreciation amount for period = Depreciation amount for period – Depreciation amount for non-cost part.

Depreciations for all fixed assets can be calculated and posted in one single operation.
