Closing Depreciation - 24f

Purpose: Use this document as a reference for closing depreciation for a period in ctcLink.

Audience: Financial Asset Manager, Facilities Asset Manager

Run the Depreciation Close process (AM_DPCLOSE) to generate period depreciation entries for all depreciable assets in a particular accounting period, including lease payments and offset accounts for the period. You can run this process only for accounting periods that have not yet been closed in Asset Management.

Run this process only once for each accounting period, and only after all of the transaction activity for the period has been completed.

Navigation: Main Menu > Asset Management > Accounting Entries > Close Depreciation

The Run Control ID defines parameters that are used when a process is run. These parameters ensure that when a process runs in the background, the system does not prompt you for additional values.
