More Information

Acquisition adjustments in Germany always have to be considered as if they were made at the first day of the business year. This means that an acquisition adjustment should be calculated as if this transaction was made at the first day of the business year regardless of the date on which the acquisition was made in that year.

When the following parameters in Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 are enabled, the depreciation for the Straight Line Life Remaining method is calculated at the beginning of the year:

  • Allow multiple acquisitions

  • Full year depreciation on additional acquisitions
