In election year 2018, I am trying to reclassify assets from MACRS (31.5 years) to ADS (40 years). The "current through date" 12/2017. At that time, the asset has been depreciating for 27.16 years, and would be depreciating for another 4.3 there were no change to the method. When I change the critical fields from MF (31.5) to AD (40), it should now be depreciating for an additional 12.875 years. However, Sage is calculating too much depreciation, and causing the asset to be fully depreciated in about 6 years.
Any advice? Is there something I'm missing in the settings for AD SL 40 years that is causing this to depreciate earlier than the 40 year mark?
