Asset Accounting is an important module in SAP that manages assets of an organization by master records. Asset accounting is a sub ledger to the SAP FI module for managing the Asset records. SAP Asset Accounting is also called as sub ledger accounting; it is one of the important sub-module of SAP financial accounting (SAP FICO) module. Asset Accounting in SAP (FI-AA) is used for managing and supervising the fixed assets of an organization. The main purpose of asset accounting is to extract the exact values of the fixed assets owned by the company on a particular date.

Asset Accounting in SAP FICO can manage all your fixed assets, irrespective of your industry and country. We usually call it as a subsidiary ledger of FI. In addition, SAP has designed Asset accounting to manage the entire lifecycle of fixed assets. It starts with purchasing to retirement or scrapping. Thus, using this we can calculate the depreciation of assets, automatically and manually, both. Further, Asset Accounting in SAP FICO provides real-time integration with FI for simultaneous recording of asset transactions. This includes initial and subsequent acquisition, retirement, transfer and scrapping.

This course focuses on managing FI-AA master data and on the handling of the various business processes in FI-AA. It also covers, e.g., the topics periodic processing, evaluation and depreciation and standard reporting. Participants will learn something about organizational structures in Asset Accounting and FI, as FI-AA is a sub-ledger of FI. They will also configure FI-AA in Customizing, to find out how configuration possibilities can affect the application and the business processes.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
