For asset accounting, additional G/L accounts


In addition to AO90 Account Determination, this post explains how to determine the “Additional G/L Accounts for Asset Accounting” Integration with General Ledger.

Including general ledger integration We frequently allocate balance sheet accounts, special reserve accounts, and depreciation accounts using the AO90 configuration to establish the G/L Accounts to post the Asset Transactions in Asset Accounting.

Please follow the setup instructions and test scenario below if you want to use Additional G/L accounts for Asset Accounting instead of the AO90 configuration settings.

Post the accounting entry for asset retirement by scrapping using two different G/L accounts.


  1. choosing the G/L Account from AO90 Account determination for retirement with scarping in the default configuration (Loss made on Asset retirement without revenue)
    OBYD Configuration: Retirement for Physical Verification Deficit (New G/L Account)
  2. Situation in Case 2 Businesses do asset physical verification six months or a year for each site. If any assets or a certain quantity of assets are lost according to the records, they must be retired with a different G/L account in order to calculate the total amount lost.

Please adhere to the setup listed below.

First, create a new transaction type for the retirement of the Asset Physical Verification Deficit.

The following steps are in order: SPRO -> Financial Accounting -> Asset Accounting -> Transactions -> Retirements -> Define the Retirement Transaction Types

Create the new transaction types by copying the transaction types 200 and 250.

New Transaction type Z00

Please update Acquisition in the same year after generating the new transaction type for the current year; in this example, I used Z50.
