Last updated on DECEMBER 07, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle Assets - Version 11.5.9 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


 For statutory reporting in the Tax Books:

1. Assets be depreciated in the year of retirement
2. If the year of retirement is same as the year of DPIS, then Do not Depreciate
3. If the asset is SOFTWARE, point (2) is not applicable.

Option (1) is achieved by setting option - Depreciate in Year Retired to 'YES' (Depreciation Methods setup).

Option (2) is achieved by setting option - Depreciate if Retired in First Year to 'NO' (Book Controls setup).

Setting this option to 'NO' at the book level insures that this is applicable to all assets in the book.

How to make an exception to this rule for a particular category (SOFTWARE)?
