SAP System2 FIFinancial Accounting2.1 FI-GL2.1.1 FI-GL-ISGeneral Ledger AccountingInformation System2.1.1.1UseFrom SAP R/3 Enterprise Financials Extension 2.00 (EA APPL 200) you can use drilldown reporting tocreate reports on average balances (reports to display average daily balances). In particular, these reportsare required in the banking area.Previously you had to save the average balances separately in an average balance ledger and could onlycalculate the key figures year-to-date and month-to-date. Now, all you have to do is activate a day ledgerin Customizing. You can then calculate all the standard key figures (month-to-date, quarter-to-date,week-to-date, year-to-date, and so on).When you define the drilldown reports you can use several average balance key figures or severalaverage balance key figures with balance sheet key figures in one report. SAP delivers two sampledrilldownreports ADBREPORT-1 and ADBREPORT-2 for calculating average balances. For moreinformation, see SAP note 599692.Effects on CustomizingIn order to be able to create reports for average balances, you have to activate a day ledger in the SpecialPurpose Ledger (FI-SL) (an FI-SL totals table with 366 periods that contains the original postings). TheIMG activity for activating the FI-SL totals table is in Customizing for Financial Accounting underSpecial Purpose Ledger - Information System - Drilldown Reporting - Use DrilldownReporting - Activate Drilldown Reporting for FI-SL Tables.2.2 FI-APAccounts Payable2.2.1 FI-AP-APBasic Functions2.2.1.1 FI-AP-AP-CLClosing Operations2.2.1.1.1UseFrom SAP R/3 Enterprise Financials Extension 2.00 (EA APPL200), as preparation for the consolidationSAP AG1

SAP System2.5.1.1 Property Tax Report (Japan) (New)UseAs of SAP R/3 Enterprise 47 200, companies in Japan can prepare property tax declarations using anew report, the Property Tax Report. This replaces the Statement of Net Assets report.The new report offers a number of functions that were not available in the old report. For example:oTax accountants can use it to prepare tax declarations that handle additional depreciation and thatare formatted exactly as required by each tax office.oCost center managers can use it to forecast how much property tax their cost center will have to pay.Effects on Existing DataBefore you execute the program for the first time, you must:oProvide the report with various data from last year's property tax declarationoPost asset transactions manually (depending on when you go live)oMaintain the asset master recordsThese activities are described in more detail in the following.NoteSAP Japan provides a number of data migration programs to help you go live with the report. For moreinformation, see SAP Note 616975.Opening Values for Tax DeclarationBefore you run the report for the first time, you must provide it with various data from last year'sproperty tax declaration, for example, each asset's tax book value and tax evaluation amount. It needs thisinformation to be able to prepare this year's property tax declarationThat means that you have to fill out the following fields in the report's results table(IDFIAA JP RESULT):FieldMANDTBUKRSANLN1ANLN2NUMC DECL YEARNUMC14 LOG SEC(YYYYMMDDHHMMSS)NUMC14 STORE SECCURR APC TOTALdeclaration periodCURR TAX BVLContentsClientCompany codeMain asset numberAsset subnumberTax declaration yearTime when data was saved in results tableSequential number of recordTotal acquisition and production costs at end of taxTax book valueSAP AG4

SAP SystemCURR TAX EVATax evaluation amountWe recommend that you use the migration program provided by SAP Japan. For more information, seethe Note mentioned above.Posting Asset Transactions ManuallyIn order to calculate each asset's taxable value, the report reads all of the data from the asset transactionsthat you have posted over the course of the tax declaration year. For example, the 2006 tax declarationcovers all of the asset transactions that occurred from 2 January 2005 through 1 January 2006.Therefore, if you go live with Asset Accounting (FI-AA) partway through the tax declaration year, youmust also post the asset transactions from the first part of the tax declaration year in the system.For example, assume you intend to go live on 1 November 2005. By 1 November you have migrated allof your legacy data, including the data described above. As of that date, your accounting clerks post allasset transactions in the SAP R/3. However, when you come to prepare the 2006 property tax declaration,it also requires all the asset transaction data from 2 January through 31 October 2005. You therefore haveto ensure that all this data is available in your system as well.That means that you have to fill the fields in the tables listed below. Again, we recommend that you usethe migration programs provided by SAP Japan.In the table ANEK (asset transaction header), fill out the following nsaction codeYesReversal document numberNoReversal document fiscal yearNoQuantityYesBase unit of measureYesAsset number sending/receiving asset in transferSubnumber sending/receiving asset in transferReference document number*YesNumber of line item within accounting documentAsset value dateYesIndicator: Post proportional values automatically*Reference procedure*YesReference organizational units*YesYesYesNoYes*In the event of transfers from one asset to another, these values in the sending asset and the receivingasset must be identical.In the table ANEP (asset line items), fill out the following fields:FieldMANDTBUKRSANLN1ContentsClientCompany CodeMain asset numberObligatory?YesYesYesSAP AG5

There are also new procedures tofollow in some asset transactions. For details, see the SAP Library documentation mentioned below.Effects on CustomizingMake the settings in the IMG activity Make Settings for Property Tax Report, and implement theBusiness Add-Ins that you need. The Add-Ins and the IMG activity are located in Customizing forFinancial Accounting (FI) under Asset Accounting - Information System - Property Tax Report(Japan).Again, SAP Japan provides some sample implementations for some of the Add-Ins.See alsoSAP Library - SAP R/3 Enterprise Application Components - Logistics - Country Versions - Asia-Pacific - Japan - Financial Accounting (FI) - Asset Accounting (FI-AA) - Property Tax2.5.1.2 Post Revaluations and New Valuations (New)UseAs of R/3 Enterprise Extension Set 2.0, you can use the new Post Revaluations and New Valuationsreport to revaluate assets in accordance with the Australian Accounting Standards AAS10
