An asset is transferred mid-month from one cost center to another, or from one natural account to another natural account. When transferring an asset at a point in time which is not the beginning or end of a month, there is an expectation that the depreciation charge in the month of transfer be prorated between the distributions according to the period of possession in the month.
Example: If the transfer occurs 10-JAN-2015, the expectation is that for this month, if the monthly depreciation expense is $1000, then 10/31 * 1000 should be charged to the original distribution, 21/31 * 1000 should be charged to the new distribution. Instead, there is a full month of depreciation charged to the new distribution, regardless of whether the prorate convention is Month, Mid-Month, or Daily.
