Assign Cost Object to Bal. Sheet Account???


Hi experts;

I found at my customer site that they set the fields of WBS element, Cost Center, Profit Center and Network are applicable with Bal. Sheet accounts at the time of Document entry like F-02.

When I discussed with them that the B/S accounts should not be linked to any cost object and cost objects are only for the P/L accounts they said yes that is right in general, but they do that with some certain accounts like the Accrued Revenue to know exactly how much is expected to be collected from each project.

But also as far I know that through the Document Split function on system I can get such result because if we assigned a Cost Obj. to a P/L account the system assign it to the other line of the document entry if it is B/L account, but I did not practice the Doc. Split before.

So can someone kindly advice wither such process is correct or not? and if not, does it has any wrong impact if they insisted to do it? And does the Doc. Split can really help in such matter?

Many thanks in advance;

Best regards;
