Obtaining Bonus Depreciation Methods for Oracle Fixed Assets

Are you looking for bonus depreciation methods for Release 12?  These could be depreciation methods used for the Jobs and Growth Tax Relief Reconciliation Act of 2003 or for the American Jobs Creation Act of 2004

Bonus depreciation methods are generally made available via a patch after the enactment of new laws.  In R12, bonus depreciation methods were made available for R12.0 (R12.FA.A) via Patch 6511705:R12.FA.A.  These methods were made available for R12.1 (R12.FA.B) via Patch 6511705:R12.FA.B.

As R12.2 was released well after the enactment of these laws, a later patch was created for delivery of these bonus depreciation methods.  For R12.2 (R12.FA.C), apply Patch 20012197:R12.FA.C.

 For reference, please review the documents:

  • R12 and R12.1 Seeded 30% 50% Bonus Depreciation Methods Missing In New Install (Doc ID 561517.1) and
