EAM: TAX CUTS AND JOBS ACT OF 2017 - APPLYING ADDITIONAL BONUS RETROACTIVELY

(Doc ID 2372497.1)

Last updated on APRIL 10, 2018

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise FIN Asset Management - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

According to the new tax law passed, eligible assets acquired since 9/27/17 should take 100% bonus depreciation.  Our assets that had been added since 9/27/17 up until now were taking 50% bonus depreciation.  How do we now go back and take the 100% bonus retroactively?

Expected Behavior
----------------------------
The Bonus Retro Calculation process should select assets for which bonus has already been taken and apply the new values for depr_bonus_sw and depr_bonus_pct.

Steps
------------
To replicate the issue, please perform the following steps:

1) Enter the new Depreciation Bonus specifications, i.e. percent, acquisition and in service from and to dates, at Setup Financials/Supply Chain > Product Related > Asset Management > Depreciation > Depreciation Bonus.
2) Run the Bonus Retro Calculation process at Asset Management > Depreciation > Bonus Retro Calculation as described in doc: Generic_Bonus_Depr Instructions.pdf
a) Select the new Bonus entered in point 1
b) Select asset that are eligible for the new Depreciation Bonus, i.e. created from 9/27/2017.
c) Add new Bonus to profiles for generation of new assets.  

Business Impact
---------------------
Businesses must report this new bonus for this tax season.
