Remark: How does the ledger approach balance to zero the technical
clearing account by accounting principle in comparison to the account
approach?
 Ledger approach:
 The operational document posts to the “technical clearing account”
being valid in all accounting principles (without specifying a ledger-
group)
 The accounting principle specific documents performs postings to the
technical clearing account by accounting principle (and ledger-group);
the technical clearing account balance to zero in each view
 Account approach:
 The operational document posts to the “technical clearing account”
being valid in all accounting principles
 The accounting principle specific documents for the
 Leading valuation: posts to the “technical clearing account” for the
leading accounting principle; the “technical clearing account”
balance to zero in the leading view
 Non-Leading valuation: posts to the “contra account: Acquisition
value” for the non-leading accounting principles (and not to the
“technical clearing account”); the “technical clearing account” and
the “contra account: Acquisition value” balance to zero for each
non-leading view.

Example for an integrated asset acquisition for the ledger approach; different
amounts have to be activated due to the accounting principle.
• Entering the data for the vendor invoice generates the following documents:
(1) ‚Technical Clearing Account Acquisition‘ to Vendor being valid for all
accounting principles (LG Blank)
(2a) Asset to ‘Technical Clearing Account Acquisition‘ being valid for
accounting principle IFRS (LG 0L)
(2b) Asset to ‘Technical Clearing Account Acquisition‘ being valid for
accounting principle local GAAP (LG N1)
• Entering the data to correct the freight costs for local GAAP; restrict
transaction to the accounting principles local GAAP
(3) Freight expenses to Asset being valid for accounting principle local
GAAP (LG N1)

FI-AA: note 1939592 for pre-check includes check report
RASFIN_MIGR_PRECHECK

The following components are not compatible with New Asset Accouting:
• Joint Venture Accounting (JVA) is not compatible with New Asset Accounting
(and vice versa). This is also valid for the Business Function JVA, Integration
with New General Ledger Accounting (JVA_GL_INTEGRATION).
• Lease Account Engine (LAE) included in the Enterprise Extension Financials
Extension (EA-FIN) is not compatible with New Asset Accounting.
• Classic Real Estate (RE classic) is not compatible with New Asset
Accounting.
• Public Sector Management – Fund Management (PSM-FM) respectively IS-
PS: it is not allowed to have posted any requests with reference to an asset
in any period of an open year.

15
Not relevant for customers already using Asset Accounting (New).

With new asset accounting the new depreciation engine (Enterprise Extension
Financials Extension (EA-FIN)) need to be active. Activate Enterprise Extension
Financials Extension (EA-FIN) (implicit new depreciation engine) manually in a
separate project in advance (before you technically upgrade your system to
SAP Accounting powered by SAP HANA )
Also check note 1498047 concerning changeover from old to new depreciation
calculation.

• With SAP Accounting powered by SAP HANA only new general ledger and new asset
accounting is available. Classic general ledger and classic asset accounting is not supported
any more.
• In case classic general ledger is used on your system: when migrating to SAP Accounting
powered by SAP HANA then the system will automatically be migrated to new general ledger
(universal journal entry).
• With new asset accounting the new depreciation engine (Enterprise Extension Financials
Extension (EA-FIN)) need to be active. Activate Enterprise Extension Financials Extension
(EA-FIN) (implicit new depreciation engine) manually in a separate project in advance.
• The following components are not compatible with SAP Accounting powered by SAP
HANA New Asset Accounting:
• Joint Venture Accounting (JVA) is not compatible with New Asset Accounting (and vice
versa). This is also valid for the Business Function JVA, Integration with New General
Ledger Accounting (JVA_GL_INTEGRATION).
• Lease Account Engine (LAE) included in the Enterprise Extension Financials Extension (EA-FIN)

• Public Sector Management – Fund Management (PSM-FM) respectively IS-PS: it is not
allowed to have posted any requests with reference to an asset in any period of an open
year.
• No pending postings: no outstanding V2 postings; periodic postings have been performed
completely (RAPERB2000) -> no further asset transactions after last periodic posting run are
allowed.
• Check for each company code in FI which is being assigned to a depreciation plan that the
parallel currency set up is complete:
• In ledger solution applies for each valuation: the parallel currency in the general ledger
(in the leading ledger and in the non-leading ledger) and in the depreciation areas in
asset accounting need to be the same.
• In account solution applies for the leading valuation: the parallel currency in the general
ledger and in the depreciation areas in asset accounting need to be the same.

17
Not relevant for customers already using Asset Accounting (New).
With Asset Accounting (New), Parallel Currency Configuration must be
completely in sync between G/L and FI-AA sub ledger.
IMG: Financial Accounting (New) -> Asset Accounting (New) -> General
Valuation -> Currencies

And set up in financial accounting:


IMG: Financial Accounting (New) -> Financial Accounting Global Settings (New)
-> Ledgers -> Ledger -> Define and Activate Non-Leading Ledgers

Remark: Which parallel depreciation areas for parallel currencies are


necessary for the ledger approach le in comparison to the account approach?
•For the ledger solution approach: Parallel currency setup for:
(1) the company code in FI need to correspond to the set up in FI-AA (parallel
depreciation areas) for the leading valuation and
(2) non-leading ledgers in FI need to correspond to the set up in FI-AA (parallel
depreciation areas) for the non-leading valuation.
•For the account approach: Parallel currency set up for the company code in FI
need to correspond to the set up in FI-AA for the leading valuation (parallel
depreciation areas) .
You are able to reconcile the balance sheet in FI and sub-ledger FI-AA
concerning parallel currencies.

18
Relevant for all customers, also those customers using Asset Accounting
(New). They still could have depreciation areas posting periodically to general
ledger.

• Before migrating your system to SAP Accounting powered by SAP HANA it is


essential to perform all periodic postings. It is not possible to post them
later (after the technical upgrade to SAP Accounting powered by SAP HANA
2.0)!
• Please make sure to make a backup before migrating your system to SAP
Accounting powered by SAP HANA 2.0

You can migrate your system after having performed a period-end close. We
recommend to migrate you system shortly after a year-end close.

With SAP Simple Finance add-on for SAP Business Suite powered by SAP
HANA 2.0 you will get a new node in the implementation guide: -> Simple
Finance Add-On for SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA

The activities for the migration are required if you are already using
SAP ERP and want to use the functions of the SAP Simple Finance
add-on for SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA . However,
they are not necessary if you are using an SAP product for these
applications for the first time.
Further documentation can be found:
• Migration Guide on SAP Help Portal
• Administrator's Guide on SAP Service Marketplace

24
• This are the main topics (from asset accounting point of view) which need to
be taken in account when migrating to SAP Simple Finance add-on for SAP
Business Suite powered by SAP HANA 2.0.
• The topic generating CDS views and migrating transactional data will be
taken in account in other sessions.
• Calculate initial depreciation values: this is explained in detail in the chapter
„depreciation run“.

25
You are already using Asset Accounting. On your source system you could
have different scenarios:
•Scenario 1:
You used Asset Accounting (Classic) on your source system. You need to
migrate to Asset Accounting (New).
•Sceanrio 2:
You used Asset Accounting (New) on your source system. You need
to adapt some parameters in Customizing in Asset Accounting
(New). One of the following scenarios is applicable:
 You have activated the business function FI-AA, Parallel Valuation
(FIN_AA_PARALLEL_VAL) in SAP enhancement package 7 for SAP
ERP 6.0, the Customizing switch is activated
 Or you are already using SAP Accounting powered by SAP
HANA 1.0 with new Asset Accounting.
To adapt the customizing in Asset Accounting (New) please use the following
IMG node: SAP Customizing Implementation Guide -> SAP Simple Finance
Add-On for SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA -> Preparations and
Migration of Customizing -> Preparations and Migration of Customizing for
Asset Accounting -> …
Alternatively you can find the relevant IMG nodes: SAP Customizing
Implementation Guide -> Financial Accounting (New) -> Asset Accounting
(New) -> Migration: Asset Accounting (New) -> …

26
27
You used Asset Accounting (Classic) on your source system. You need to migrate
your chart of depreciation in Asset Accounting (New).
• A new IMG node is available for Asset Accounting (New): SAP Customizing
Implementation Guide -> Financial Accounting (New) -> Asset Accounting (New)
• Migrate chart of depreciation:
• Each chart of depreciation need to be migrated (1) which is assigned to a company code and (2)
to which company code you still can post (“Status of asset data transfer in the company code”
does not have parameter “3=Company code deactivated - later reporting allowed”).
• Each chart of depreciation need to be migrated (1) which is assigned to a company code and
(2) to which company code is only used for reporting (“Status of asset data transfer in the
company code” has parameter “3=Company code deactivated - later reporting allowed”) and (3)
which data (transactional and master data) is not completely archived yet. This need to be
migrated manually (no automatic migration possible).
If all data (transactional and master data) is archived then we do not migrate the transactional
data and in consequence there is no need to migrate the chart of depreciation.
• A chart of depreciation which is not assigned to a company code yet does not need to be
migrated.
• A sample chart of depreciation can not (and does not have to) be migrated.
• An accounting principle need to be assigned to each depreciation area, even the
non-posting depreciation areas. The system derives the accounting principle from
the relevant ledger group.
• Depreciation areas that until now had posting indicator option 2 (Depreciation
Area Posts Asset Balances and Depreciation Periodically) must now have option
4 instead (Depreciation Area Posts Asset Balances in Real Time, Depreciation
Periodically).
Depreciation areas that represent reserves for special depreciation, for example,
in future post immediately to the general ledger and receive the option
Depreciation Area Posts Balance Sheet Value Immediately, Depreciation
Periodically.

28
You used Asset Accounting (Classic) on your source system. You
need to migrate your chart of depreciation in Asset Accounting
(New).
• Each accounting principle (which will be assigned to a depreciation area later
on) need to be assigned to a ledger group.
• For the ledger approach and for the account approach you need to assign a
ledger group to the accounting principle.
• For the account approach the following settings apply:
• a ledger group can either be created manually or automatically using the
migration report.
• for each valuation you need to create a ledger group; all ledger groups will
always be assigned to the leading ledger 0L

• Migrate chart of depreciation:


• You can either migrate it automatically by program or manually
• A chart of depreciation (1) which is assigned to a company code and (2)
which company code is only used for reporting (“Status of asset data
transfer in the company code” has parameter “3=Company code
deactivated - later reporting allowed”) and (3) all data (transactional and
master data) have been migrated always need to be migrated manually.

29
You used Asset Accounting (Classic) on your source system. You
need to migrate your chart of depreciation in Asset Accounting
(New).
• Each depreciation area needs to be assigned to an accounting principle (and
ledger group).
• All depreciation areas representing the same accounting principle will be
assigned to the same accounting principle (and ledger group).
• An accounting principle is assigned to each depreciation area,
even the non-posting depreciation areas. The system derives
the accounting principle from the relevant ledger group that is
already assigned to the depreciation area.
• Depreciation areas that until now had posting indicator option 2
(Depreciation Area Posts Asset Balances and Depreciation
Periodically) must now have option 4 instead (Depreciation
Area Posts Asset Balances in Real Time, Depreciation
Periodically).
Depreciation areas that represent reserves for special
depreciation (“Sonderposten”), for example, in future post
immediately to the general ledger and receive the option
Depreciation Area Posts Balance Sheet Value Immediately,
Depreciation Periodically.

30
31
In this example you can see a chart of depreciation (for the ledger
approach) which was set up in Asset Accounting (classic). This
chart of depreciation has been migrated due to the new
requirements.

32
With Asset Accounting (New), each and every depreciation area must be assigned to
a ledger group.
IMG: Asset Accounting (New) -> Integration with General Ledger Accounting -> Define
How Depreciation Areas Post to General Ledger (Tx OADB):

With Asset Accounting (New), the Posting Indicator supports five (4) different values.
For the depreciation areas the Posting Indicator need to be adjusted.
 The leading area of the leading valuation always contains the Area Posts in
Realtime option.
 The following applies to the ledger approach: The leading area of the parallel
valuation also contains the Area Posts in Realtime option.
 The following applies for the accounts approach: The leading area of the parallel
valuation receives the option Area Posts APC Immediately, Depreciation
Periodically (or Area Posts APC and Depreciation Periodically).
 The derived depreciation areas (delta depreciation areas) that posted to Financial
Accounting up to now as part of the ledger approach are no longer needed, except
for reporting purposes. These areas receive the option Area Does Not Post. And
they are marked as “Depreciation area for reporting purposes only”
 Investment support posted to liabilities: depreciation area use option Area Posts in
Realtime.
 „Special Items (Sonderposten)“: depreciation area post in realtime as well (Area Posts
APC in Realtime and Depreciation Periodically);

33
You used Asset Accounting (Classic) on your source system. You
need to migrate your chart of depreciation in Asset Accounting
(New).
Example of a chart of depreciation (ledger approach) which was migrated by a
program:
• With Asset Accounting (New), APC Value Take Over must only be defined
within one and the same accounting principle assignment.
IMG: Financial Accounting (New) -> Asset Accounting (New) -> General
Valuation -> Depreciation Areas -> Specify Transfer of APC Values (Tx
OABC):
• Within a set of depreciation areas which are assigned to the same LG there is
always one leading area of the valuation which value needs to be set to initial
(indicator 00); it does not take over values from another area.
• Value take over can only be done within a set of depreciation areas which are
assigned to the same accounting principle.
• There is no longer a requirement to sequence the depreciation areas for value
take over (former logic: value take over only allowed from a depreciation area
with a lower number).
• The same applies for the parameter takeover
IMG: Financial Accounting (New) -> Asset Accounting (New) -> General
Valuation -> Depreciation Areas -> Specify Transfer of Depreciation Terms
(Tx OABD)

34
You used Asset Accounting (Classic) on your source system. You need to migrate
your chart of depreciation in Asset Accounting (New).
• Account approach: Define asset balance sheet accounts for parallel valuation:
IMG: Asset Accounting (New) -> Preparations for Going Live -> Production Startup -> Accounts
Approach: Set/Reset Reconciliation Accounts for Parallel Valuation
or create new asset balance sheet accounts as reconciliation accounts (tx FS00) and assign them in
the account determination
IMG: Asset Accounting (New) -> Integration with General Ledger Accounting -> Assign G/L Accounts
• Quantity update:
IMG: Asset Accounting (New) -> Valuation -> Depreciation Areas -> Specify Depreciation Area for
Quantity Update
• New technical clearing account for integrated asset acquisition:

35
You used Asset Accounting (Classic) on your source system. You
need to migrate your chart of depreciation in Asset Accounting
(New).
• After having migrated the chart of depreciation and implemented the new
customizing you need to check if the prerequisites for the activation are met.
This should be executed
• In your customizing system manual before activation of new Asset Accounting
• In your follow-on systems manual before customizing changes are imported
• In your follow-on systems automatically when new customizing settings are
being imported (after import method)

36
• Check in each system prerequisites to migrate your systems to SAP Accounting powered by SAP
HANA : for details see note 1939592
• Perform periodic postings: transaction ASKB, report RAPERB2000 -> all outstanding postings need to
be performed due to former posting logic. Execute report in productive mode (and background) even if
in your opinion there are no outstanding periodic postings => a time stamp will be stored in a table!
Remark: in case the periodic postings have not all been performed before the system migration to
SAP Accounting powered by SAP HANA it is not possible to perform them any longer. You need to
import your backup.
• Before activating check prerequisites for Activating Asset Accounting (New): IMG activity: Asset
Accounting (New) -> New Asset Accounting: Preparation and Activation -> Check Prerequisites for
Activating Asset Accounting (New)
(tx FAA_CHECK_ACTIVATION, report RACHECK_ACTIVATION_PARVAL)
• Development system: check whether the prerequisites for activating new Asset
Accounting are met
• Test and productive system (in case of error): check which prerequisites
are not met if the switch for new Asset Accounting could not be set to
Active during the import
Activate Asset Accounting (New): IMG activity: Asset Accounting (New) -> New Asset
Accounting: Preparation and Activation -> Activate Asset Accounting (New)
• Import Transport for Asset Accounting (New):
• all changes shall be imported to the target system (e.g. test system, productive system);
• after importing the transport the system performs the AIM (after import method); once again report
RACHECK_ACTIVATION_PARVAL is executed to make sure that the import was successful.
In case it was not successful Asset Accounting (New) will not be activated in the target
system/client.

• Errors with individual assets do not necessarily need to be corrected before
period-end closing; period-end closing can still be performed. You have to
make sure that all assets are corrected by the end of the year only so that
depreciation can be posted completely.
• It is possible to execute a mid-year test run (also the first run of a period)
with a restriction on assets. A restriction of assets is not possible in update
run.
• The following constraints apply:
• In a test run, the depreciation run can be started in dialog with a limit to a maximum of
1000 assets.
• The update run can only be started in the background.
• It must be possible to post the company code during the update run.
• If the program is started in the background, an entry is written in the
Schedule Manager for each combination of company code/accounting
principle (ledger group).
• Selection screen is simplified:
• “reasons for posting run” (planned depreciation run, repeat,
restart, unplanned posting run) not relevant any more
• Depreciation run can be performed for several company
codes and accounting principles

45
Transaction AFAR will allow to calculate planed depreciation.
With Report RABUCDEL you were able to reset posted depreciation. This

• Each accounting principle (which will be assigned to a depreciation area later
on) need to be assigned to a ledger group.
• For the ledger approach and for the account approach you need to assign a
ledger group to the accounting principle.
• For the account approach the following settings apply:
• a ledger group can either be created manually or automatically using the
migration report (see separate slide).
• for each valuation you need to create a ledger group; all ledger groups will
always be assigned to the leading ledger 0L
• Each depreciation area needs to be assigned to an accounting principle (and
ledger group).
• All depreciation areas representing the same accounting principle will be
assigned to the same accounting principle (and ledger group).

56
• To create a ledger group automatically, perform the following steps:
• Perform migration report FAA_CHECK_MIG2SFIN, tx
FAA_CHECK_MIG2SFIN for your depreciation plan;
IMG: Financial Accounting (New) -> Asset Accounting (New) -> Migration:
Asset Accounting (New) -> Migration for New Asset Accounting -> Migrate
Charts of Depreciation
In productive run the system will create a ledger group for each leading
depreciation area of a non leading accounting principle; this ledger group will
always be assigned to the leading ledger 0L; the depreciation plan will not be
migrated during this first execution (due to missing ledger groups).
• The name given to the automatically created ledger group is: “&”+number of
depreciation area+”&”  see example above: ledger group &31& for
depreciation area 31.
• Maintain the description of your automatically created ledger group:
IMG: Financial Accounting (New) -> Financial Accounting Global Settings
(New) –> Ledgers -> Ledger -> Define Ledger Group
• Check if the relevant accounting principle already exists and assign it to the
ledger group.
IMG: Financial Accounting (New) -> Financial Accounting Global Settings

With Asset Accounting (New), you need an additional reconciliation account (asset) if
you want to post integrated asset acquisition.
IMG: Financial Accounting (New) -> Asset Accounting (New) -> Integration with
General Ledger Accounting -> Technical Clearing Account for Integrated Asset
Acquisitions -> …
New account technical clearing account for integrated asset acquisition needs to be
set up:
- Balance sheet account, reconciliation account for asset accounting („A“)
- line item management is not (should not be) activated
- Is not allowed to be used in other FI-AA account determination (e.g. table T095,
T095B, T095P)
Flag „Posting without tax allowed“ needs to be activated in case SAPF181 shall post
readjustment of cash discount (set up: document split is not active, asset has been
activated with net value (without discount), payment is done without deducting
discount)

The following business transaction post to the new account technical clearing account
for integrated asset acquisition
- Integrated asset acquisition

Remark:
You can set up a different “technical clearing account for asset acquisition” for specific
account determination. E.G. if you require different field control behavior depending on
the asset balance sheet account to be posted then you set up an additional “technical
clearing account for asset acquisition”. Its field status group should be correspondent
to the field status group of the APC account.

restricted to depreciation areas
• BADI „FAA_TTY_AREALIMITATION“ (valid in EHP7 to restrict transaction
types by depreciation area) is not available any more.
• Set TTY to obsolete: you can not post with this TTY; it is only be taken in
consideration for reporting purpose

• In the test system in general you have data and want to test the new
functionality. Hence you should perform the periodic posting run (report
RAPERB2000, transaction ASKB).
• In case the transport and the AIM were successful, Asset Accounting (New)
has been activated and the status will display „Active“. It is possible to
perform postings in Asset Accounting.
• In case the AIM was not succesful, then you will not be able to perform
postings in Asset Accounting (New). The status will show „in preparation“ or
„Active (Posting not possible in client)“.
• status „in preparation“: customizing is not imported correct
• status „Active (Posting not possible in client)“: inconsistency in transactional
data (e.g. there are still outstanding periodic postings); you can force the
system with transaction FAA_DO_ACTIVATION to perform the AIM and set the
status “Active”. An entry is available in table TFAAD_BSN_FUNC.
Be aware that the data will be inconsistent. But posting is possible in the
system/client for testing purposes.

Former documentation of field “Smothing”
Smoothing (deprec. for past) when posting depreciation
If you set this indicator, the depreciation posting program calculates the periodic
depreciation to be posted by distributing the remaining depreciation to be
posted equally over the remaining periods of the fiscal year.
Otherwise the system calculates in each period (based on the total annual
depreciation) the amount of depreciation that must be posted from the start of
the fiscal year to the current period. The depreciation already posted is then
subtracted from this amount. If too little or too much depreciation has been
posted in previous periods, the system either makes up or reverses the
difference in full during the next depreciation posting run using the catch-up
method (depreciation for past periods in a lump sum).

Former documentation:
In this step, you can reset the posted depreciation in the asset
subledger (only when the company code is in test status). The
system then deletes the corresponding value data of all the fixed
assets for a company code. This reset also deletes all data that is
used to manage and monitor the depreciation posting runs. This
action might be necessary if you need to return to the original
depreciation posting status during the system installation phase, if
errors occurred when you tested the depreciation posting run.
This is not a reset in the accounting sense. No documents or
posting sessions are created to cancel the depreciation posting
already made in Financial Accounting. As a consequence, a reset in
Asset Accounting results in differences between the accumulated
depreciation of the fixed asset in the subledger and the respective
accounts in Financial Accounting. You need to make manual
adjustment postings in the general ledger to eliminate these
differences. A reset is therefore only possible for company codes in
a test installation. The reset of the depreciation data is logged in the
system log.

wir haben den Jahreswechsel (RAJAWE00) geschlachtet. Die
Funktionalität zum Eröffnen eines neuen Jahres ist in den Ballance
Carry-Forward des FI eingezogen (BCF Transaktion FAGLGVTR).
Zusätzlich muß der Kunde ein AfA Neurechnen für das zu
eröffnende Jahr anstoßen (Transaktion AFAR).

Kannst Du bitte die Doku entsprechend anpassen? Außerdem


müßten wir den RAJAWE00 aus dem Easy Access Menu raus
nehmen und irgendwie eine elegante Lösung entwickeln, wie der
Kunde die zwei neuen Schritte erreichen kann und in der richtigen
Reihenfolge abarbeitet (ähnlich der Popups für IMG Aktivitäten).
Hast Du da eine Idee?

Im Moment hat der RAJAWE00 erst mal nur eine Abbruchmeldung.


Wenn möglich, würde ich den Report aber gerne noch komplett ins
Nirvana befördern. Das ist nur Coding-Waste L
Tx AJRW Report RAJAWE00 not relevant any more
Tx FAGLGVTR includes balance carry
forward for FI an AA, in addition tx AFAR need to be performed

You want to monitor direct capitalizations to assets in cost
accounting with regard to budget values, available values and
commitments.
IMG: Asset Accounting (New) -> Transactions -> Budget Monitoring with
Statistical Orders/WBS Elements -> Specify G/L Account for Statistical Cost
Element

Parallel Valuation using different APC accounts: With the control of message
KI098 “Balance sheet account & cannot be created as a cost element”
(Controlling -> General Controlling -> Change Message Control) this behavior
can be adjusted and indeed the statistical cost element (for lower releases) can
be created and the G/L account can be flagged to „Apply Acct Assignments
Statistically in Fixed Asset Acct / Material Acct.“

71
Indicator defining whether account assignment objects will be
assigned (statistically) to a line item posted to this G/L account.
Cost elements of category 90 enable you to control the costs of an order or
project budget during the acquisition of fixed assets that can be directly
capitalized. To achieve this, you enter a capital investment order or work
breakdown structure (WBS) element in the appropriate field in the asset master
data. The Asset Management (AM) component ensures that when the asset is
acquired, the order or WBS element is automatically entered in the document.
In Controlling, orders and WBS elements are debited statistically. This
statistical debit is checked with the budget during availability control.
