Before NCCA Cost Accounting can be used, its basic functionality must be set up.
In the NCCA Cost Accounting Setup page, the general settings and defaults are defined.
Allow Posting From
Specifies the earliest date on which posting in NCCA Cost Accounting is allowed.
Allow Posting To
Specifies the last date on which posting in NCCA Cost Accounting is allowed.
Allow Deletion Before
Specifies whether cost types can be deleted if there are already entries for the cost type. Cost types with entries on or after this date cannot be deleted.
Deleting a Cost Type:
There must be no cost entry and no cost budget entry for the cost type that is on or after the Allow Deletion Before date.
Unlike deleting a G/L Account in general ledger, the balance of the cost type does not have to be 0 when deleting.
When deleting a cost type, the cost type field is deleted for all related cost entries. So the cost entries are not deleted directly.
To ensure that the cost entries are no longer included in any evaluations, all values of the cost dimension fields 1 to 8 in the cost entries are also deleted when a cost type is deleted.
The cost budget entries of the cost type are completely deleted when a cost type is deleted.
Deleting a Cost Dimension:
There must be no cost entry or cost budget entry for the cost dimension.
A cost dimension can therefore only be deleted if all cost types with which the cost dimension was posted together have been deleted first.
Posting Rule Cost Dimension 1 and 2
Specifies which combination of cost dimension 1 and 2 is allowed when posting.
Default Net Change Date Filter
Specifies a filter that will be suggested in the Chart of Cost Dimensions.
It is possible to specify IDs (placeholders) in the filter that will be calculated and replaced based on the Work Date. A list of Date Filter ID examples can be opened via the lookup of the field.
For more information, see Reports and Analysis, Edit Evaluations, Date Filter IDs.
Cost Dimension Setup
In the Cost Dimension Setup area, the Cost Type and the Cost Dimensions are created or managed.
For more information, see Setup, Cost Dimension Setup.

For an FA Entry to be transferred, the FA Posting Category field must be empty for FA Posting Type Depreciation, Write-Down, Custom 1 and Custom 2.
For FA Posting Type Book Value on Disposal or Gain/Loss the value of the FA Posting Category does not matter.
