SAY TODAY’S DATE IS 15 APRIL 2007, for instance Note: This illustration has assumed a Calendar Year Fiscal

Year and so used 31/12 as end of FY. This does not always have to be the case, jut ensure you adjust it to last date of your FY or as the case may be (according to the FY Varian in FI). 1. If Value date for Legacy Asset Transfer/ Transfer Date/ Last Closed FY is for example specified as 31.12.2006, you will transfer Cumulative values from your Legacy System as at end of 2006. You then carry out Transactions going forward as from 01 Jan 2007 in new SAP System and if peradventure, you had posted transactions in Legacy in 2007, all this is not taken into account. You DO NOT need to specify Period Depreciation Was Last Posted in Legacy as SAP assumes Period 01, 2007 automatically. Ideally, Transactions should be stopped in Legacy at 31.12.2006 so that all Data that will be taken on and that exist on Legacy will be cumulative as at end of December 2006 and so less complication. 2. If you specified a transfer date of 31 May 2007 for instance, this will be Transfer during the year. Cumulative values as at end of 31 Dec 2006 are transferred from legacy. No Historical transactions are transferred, BUT you transfer transactions (Posted transactions/ Depreciation up till the Transfer Date that you specify) carried out in Legacy in the current FY also (i.e. therefore not historical but current). You must then specify Period Depreciation Was Last Posted in Legacy to refer to when Depreciation was last posted in your Legacy System. (Logically a period in current FY 2007 as the assumption is that you would have executed Depreciation in Legacy up till the last day/ last period of the last FY in the Legacy System at least, but may be different if for some reason, you had not executed Depreciation up till the last day/ period of last FY in your legacy System) and SAP then AFAB from the next/ subsequent period.

In all cases, as a rule, Asset Transactions after the Transfer date should be carried out in the new SAP System. For example if you want to create an Asset with a Capitalisation date that is after your Transfer date, that Asset can not form part of your Legacy Transfer. It should be created as a new asset on your new SAP System.
