Fixed Assets

Setting Up System Control – An Insight View

While implementing fixed assets, setting up system control is the one of the first and most important setup as this is a onetime setup and also a instance level setup rather than asset book / operating unit / Ledger specific setup. So all the fixed assets books which will be implemented  in the current instance will use the key flex field structures setup at system options level. Below setups are done at system control level Enterprise name - Enter the name which you want to see in reports. This name can be altered / changed even at a later stage Oldest date placed in Service – Determines what is the oldest date placed in service with which the asset can be created in the application and it also determines the date from which all the calendars, fiscal years etc needs to set. You can only update the Oldest Date Placed in Service BEFORE you assign any calendars to depreciation books. Flex field Structures- Enter the Location, Category, and Asset Key Flex field structures you want  to use. Starting Asset number - Enter the Starting Number at which you want Oracle Assets to begin automatically numbering your assets.  If you are converting from another system and would like to keep the asset numbers same as the legacy system then the starting asset number entered in system control has to be greater than the number of assets which you want to convert. It is recommended to take the number of assets that you have/want to convert and start with the next highest potential. Example: If you have 6500 assets convert from legacy system, then enter the starting asset number as any number higher than 6500. Automatic asset number is generated by sequence FA_ADDITIONS_S and this sequence is applicable to all the books in a instance. For e.g if you have multiple books in a single instance, then the automatic asset numbers will be assigned to both the books depending on the sequence of addition and the numbers will not be in sequence at book level. Last asset number used – This field automatically gets updated based on the maximum value used in FA_ADDITIONS_S sequence. For more information on setting up system options and each of above options, please refer asset user guide.

Property Manager

Property Manager - Migration Process for IFRS And US GAAP Regime

As we all know, all the customers who are following IFRS / US GAAP accounting standards has to switch to new reporting / accounting process with effect from 1st Jan 2019. All the existing customers who are already using the existing property manager functionality and have their leases running in the Oracle EBS property manager, need to migrate their existing leases from current property manager solution to new IFRS regime. When it comes to transition from current property manager system to compliance accounting, we have 3 available options i.e Continue existing normalized and AP accounting or invoices Generate only compliance reports and do not generate any accounting from property manager Uptake the multiple GAAP accounting (IFRS, US GAAP, and existing normalization accounting) in primary and secondary ledgers Below is the quick overview of each of these options I. Continue Existing Normalized and AP Accounting or Invoices Under this, there will not be any calculation of ROU / Liability balances and no interest expenses will be calculated. Under this user will not be selecting any of the compliance related attributes / setups and it will work as current property manager functionality is working i.e accounting entry is generated when AP invoice is created and when normalization entry is interfaced to GL. II. Generate only Compliance Reports and do not Generate any Accounting from Property manager Under this approach, using property manager solution, organizations can generate ROU / Liability balances and interest and amortization calculation etc. and they can also generate the reports to extract these balances. But under this approach, there will not be any accounting entry that will get generated / interfaced to GL. III. Uptake the Multiple GAAP Accounting Under this approach, customers not only generate the compliance related reports using property manager solution, but also generate the accounting entries required for compliance accounting and also interface them to General ledger. Note :- Customers who are adopting the Modified Retrospective Approach, need not run Calculation program for previous period in final mode i.e step number 5 in the above flow. They can directly run the calculation program as of transition date with method as "Modified Retrospective". This parameter is non-mandatory. When you select a value Modified Retrospective Method as the parameter for Method, the system will take into consideration all cash flows on and after 1st day of the transition date period. You can run the above program if you want Modified Retrospective Method numbers only. Based on Report From Inception flag you can control if you want cash flows from lease commencement to be considered into calculations. This new parameter will help you start calculations from the transition month in contrast to earlier method of resorting to previous month. You can still run Calculate ROU Asset and Liability Balances for each of the previous months for which numbers are needed to be reported. However, the new parameter does not depend/continue those balances into calculation of balances as on 1st day of the transition period. Currently, the parameter can only be used for transition calculations in Final mode only and through a subsequent fix. Draft calculations will also be provided soon. For more information on each of these options, refer our Info center document 2482062.2 .

New Process Flow Analyzer: The EBS Period Close Process Analyzer is available now.

Introducing the EBS Period Close Process Analyzer available now for download and use.  This analyzer is different from the period close product based analyzers.  This is a business flow analyzer that will scan posting items across all EBS products and let you know which products have pending items in your subledgers that will prevent you from closing the period in General Ledger. Currently, this analyzer will scan posting-related items across the following EBS Products: Lease Management Channel Revenue Management Order Management Cash Management Payables Receivables Purchasing Cost and Inventory Projects Fixed Assets and finally the General Ledger The EBS Period Close Process Analyzer 200.1 DocID 2468739.1 Many EBS products send accounting information to General Ledger (GL). However, there is no control within the GL period close process that would prevent a user from closing the GL period prematurely. The above output shows the summary on the left and each product on the right.  If you have a warning or error you will want to click on the application to get more details. We can make an analogy of the EBS products as being passengers on a train, and the train is General Ledger. The passengers are in the process of boarding the train, but the train starts leaving the station before all passengers have boarded. There is no conductor to alert the engineer to wait. So the train keeps going, passengers are left behind and these passengers now have to deal with how to get to their destination. This new analyzer acts like the conductor. When you incorporate this into your business process of closing the GL period, then it will alert you to wait when there are pending items. By waiting for subledgers to complete, many issues are avoided because subledgers are not left dangling with accounting entries you can no longer get all the way into GL. Benefits of the EBS Period Close Process Analyzer     Run from General Ledger responsibility, but checks all subledgers     Provides recommended actions and best practices     Runs as a standalone or Concurrent Request     Does not include transaction-specific data to ensure security Download today and incorporate this into your GL period close business process.

Fixed Assets

Fixed Asset Key Flexfield – An Overview

Deciding key flex field structure is an important decision in any organization while implementing Oracle application. When it comes to fixed assets, before defining the key flexfield structures proper planning needs to be done on the design as these flex field segments / structures cannot be changed at a later stage and the segments defined in these flex fields are applicable at instance level and all the books defined in that particular instance will be using the same asset key flex field structures. So these flex fields needs to be designed keeping in mind the current as well as future requirements of the business. In Fixed assets we have 3 key flex fields i.e 1. Asset Key Flexfield - Oracle Assets uses the asset key flex field to group your assets by non-financial information. You design your asset key flex field to record the information you want. Then you group your assets by asset key so you can find them without an asset number. You define your asset key flexfield structure to fit the specific needs of your organization. You choose the number of segments, the length of each segment, and the name and order of each segment in your asset key flexfield. You can define up to ten asset key segments. This key flexfield supports only one structure. 2. Asset Category Flex field-  Define the category flexfield to fit the way you group your assets. In Category flexfield structure, you must enable the major category qualifier to one segment and you can also define up to six subcategory segments. Even this flex field is a instance level setup and all the books defined in that instance will use the same category flex field structure / Segments. The maximum number of segments allowed for this flexfield is 7 and each segment can have 30 characters. 3. Location Flexfield - Assets use the location flexfield to group your assets by physical location. You design your location flexfield to record the location information you want. Then you can report on your assets by location.  This flex field structure needs to be defined carefully so that exact physical location of the asset can be tracked using this flexfield. If you do business internationally (or plan to do so in the future), you may want to track the country an asset is in. Other segments you may want include are state, city, and site. If you track asset location to more detail, such as for barcoding, you can also add segments for building and room number. You need to decide how many levels (segments) your location structure needs. Currently you can define up to six other location segments excluding the State segment.  For information on each of these flexfields, refer Oracle Assets user guide

Learn All About It! New Feature Rollback Timecards from Projects Accounting

[Contributing author: Helen Weatherhead, Oracle EBS HCM Support] Oracle E-Business Suite, Time and Labor New Release 12.2.8  New Feature, Rollback Timecards from Projects Accounting The ability to Rollback Timecards that have been transferred to Project Accounting is now available to users. This new feature was released in 2018, in Oracle Time and Labor Release 12.2. HRMS RUP12 Patch 26787667 If you have previously experienced problems with costing hours in EBS Projects due to incorrect processing or incorrect/corrupted data coming from Oracle Time and Labor (OTL) Timecards and had to log a service request to get the data rolled back so you can re-transfer it, then this enhancement will greatly benefit you. This new feature allows you to execute the Rollback in two ways. If you wish to selectively choose and rollback Timecards for one person or one organization you can use the Rollback page.   Alternatively, if you wish to rollback the entire group of Timecards you can do so using a concurrent request program. You can also view a list of previously submitted Rollback requests from the Recent Rollbacks Page. The page contains live links to allow you to access details of the Rollback (Request id) and the concurrent request log file output. Here is a screenshot of what the Recent Rollbacks Page looks like:   From the Recent Rollbacks page, you can choose to launch a new Rollback if you wish to use the selective method of rolling back. From here, you can choose one Timecard or a group of Timecards to be rolled back.   If you are confident in your selection criteria and do not wish to choose individual Timecards to be rolled back then you can go directly to the Concurrent Request / program method of rolling back. The parameters are the same as those on the Rollback Page without the Timecard selection.   A very useful feature of this functionality is that the Rollbacks can take place in two modes, thereby allowing you to view and validate the data before committing the changes. Validate Validate and Process For more information on this exciting new functionality, and others released in Oracle Time and Labor Release 12.2.

Equipment Lease - A New functionality in Property Manager

The Equipment lease-for Lessee is a new feature and part of Oracle Property Management systems. This Oracle Equipment lease-for Lessee provides the Lessee to manage their equipment lease portfolio in an effective and efficient manner and this feature also helps the lessee to meet the compliance requirement of IFRS and US GAAP. The simple and most logic reason behind the introduction of equipment leasing –lessee accounting module is the crying need for equipment leasing industry-lessee. The current oracle E business suite support the Lessor transactions and contract management through Oracle lease and financial management in which equipment leasing in terms of Lessors view point, but doesn’t have the wings for Lessee accounting and operations. The Property Manager (PN) already have the framework for the tenant accounting and operation captured with lease by defining real-estate properties and associate them with the lease contract, not Equipment’s. So it would be easier to use the same framework by extending the utilities to accommodate the equipment lease arm too.

Any collections older than 2 weeks will automatically be purged. If ORAchk is installed in stand-alone mode Auto start can also be used for quick setup by running orachk -autostart, again only when run as root on Linux or Solaris on a non-engineered system. Once auto start is enabled the daemon settings can be changed as per normal and auto start can be removed any time by using orachk -autostop or tfactl run orachk -autostop Run against individual PDBs ORAchk and EXAchk can now be run against specific individual PDBs. To run against specific PDBs use -pdbnames {pdb_name1,pdb_name2} User defined check enhancements User defined checks can now have custom check names, pass and fail messages, all declared dynamically at run time. The dynamic values can be set like this ---CHECK STARTS--- {existing_check_code} echo "CUSTOM_CHECK_NAME={customized_check_name}" >> CUSTOMIZE_CHECK_PARAMS echo "CUSTOM_PASS_MSG={customized_pass_message}" >> CUSTOMIZE_CHECK_PARAMS echo "CUSTOM_FAIL_MSG={customized_fail_message}" >> CUSTOMIZE_CHECK_PARAMS ---CHECK ENDS---   Additionally user defined checks that are on hold will no longer be exported by default.

Find Out More About WMS Cloud REST API Webservices

Integration with external systems used to be complex and error prone in legacy systems. Not anymore with Oracle Warehouse Management Cloud REST API Webservices.   Representational State Transfer (REST) is a web standards-based architecture utilizing the HTTP protocol for data communication. RESTful web services are a light weight, scalable, and maintainable way to allow web-based system-to-system communication, irrespective of the respective application platforms (interoperability). Oracle WMS Cloud has had REST API's for many years. However, the focus has been very functional. It has focused on:   Data interfaces - getting transactional data in and out Operational APIs - specific operations to support integrating with automation systems Version 9.0.0 includes a new set of API's that focus on exposing broader and deeper access to the system. It follows REST standards more closely to create entities (resources) and allows access to these resources via the HTTP verbs GET, POST etc. These API’s designed for interacting with and manipulating application data using HTTP requests. The purpose of these APIs is to expose application data to external systems in a controlled and predictable manner. REST APIs can be used as a tool for individual users working with the application, but they are primarily designed for system integration. You can find the latest 9.0 documents at document, Oracle Warehouse Management Cloud - Documentation for Release 9.0.0 (Doc ID 2381586.1).

Property Manager – IFRS16 and ASC842 Accounting Standards for Equipment Lessees Patch released (12.2.4 and above)

Starting in 2019, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) will require adherence to new accounting standards for equipment lessees. To meet these new standards, equipment lessees are required to make significant changes in accounting and reporting by adding their leases to their balance sheet as lease liabilities with corresponding right-of-use (ROU) assets. New Functional and Technical Capabilities The update provides the following capabilities: Contract Abstraction and Migration: UIs are provided to capture contractual terms and conditions (attributes) and asset information for leases. New UIs and APIs are available to capture and amend the contracts. Lease Accounting Transformation: A new accounting infrastructure provides the ability to account for and amortize the liability and right-of-use asset. This new infrastructure includes the ability to determine SLA/GL account codes based on sources from the equipment lease contract. Global Lease Management: The solution supports Multi-GAAP with the ability to account under existing GAAP, IFRS16, and ASC842 for the same contract. Flexible Amortization Schedules: Amortization of the right-of-use and liability using various options (e.g., 30/360, 4-4-5, daily calculations) for each GAAP is provided. Support for Foreign Currency: The solution supports and accounts for multiple currencies on the same contract, providing you the ability to manage your ROU and liability in the entered and functional currencies. Enhanced Reporting: There are reports to help with managing the new lease accounting and disclosures, including the Lease Analysis Report, Lease Detail Report, Portfolio Detail Report, and Portfolio Summary Report. These reports combine information from your Property lease portfolio to provide a single view of all of your leases. Availability Accounting for equipment lessees is functionality for 12.2.4 version and above is available on My Oracle Support via patch 28073854:R12.PN.C. A backport patch set for 12.1.3 is planned. If in case if you have any further questions on the equipment lease functionality, you can reach out to us on Oracle Property Manager Community.
