Procedure documentationDefining and Assigning Depreciation Areas Locate this document in the navigation structure

 

In SAP Business One, you can define the following types of depreciation areas:

  • Posting to G/L

  • Additional area

  • Derived area

For each asset class, you can assign multiple depreciation areas and these depreciation areas will then be taken to all assets in the class. With multiple depreciation areas, you can carry out different depreciation calculations for a single asset.

Prerequisites

You have enabled fixed assets.
