Improper Allocation To Distributions Following Cost Adjustment

(Doc ID 1941728.1)

Applies to:

Oracle Assets - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Negatively cost adjusting a positive cost asset which already has reserve, and amortizing that adjustment to current period, will prevent that asset from taking catchup for the cost adjustment.  If the cost adjustment is of a sufficiently large size that the asset has negative NBV after the adjustment, the periodic depreciation will take a negative depreciation amount sufficient to get the asset to NBV of zero, that is, to fully reserve the asset.


For assets with single distributions that has been working fine.  However if the asset has multiple distributions, the negative amount of depreciation is allocated entirely to the distribution with the greatest negative NBV, rather than spreading over all the distributions equitably based upon their cost % to total asset cost.


In some cases, not all, Depreciation will fail on this asset -- whether Depreciation fails depends entirely on the specific amounts on the asset.
