Company, Companies & Company Codes

Hi SAP Users,

Can anyone comment on the following

MY client is thinking of the following scenario

X Company - will have 3 subsidiary companies ( company codes)

Y Company- wil have 2 subsidiary companies ( company codes)

I am sure , we cannot set up two companies in one client.

Any comments

Regards,

TSK

    Hi TSK ,

       Under a client one can create any number of company codes .  In your case create 5 company codes under a client.     For X company  say 1000, 1001, 1002  and For company Y  2000,2001.   Now all the company codes under X should have a common chart of accounts likewise for Y also.   A term company in SAP always refer the collection of company codes under one umbrella.  

    Hope this may clarify your doubt.

    Hi,

    You cannot 'n' no. of companies in one client. Here company means group company. Assign of co.codes to the company means its subsidiaries. So, X or Y companies are independent each other. So can create it as separately.

      Hi

      If you see the structure , will see..

      Client > Company (Group level) > controlling area > CCodes

      So same Controlling area is defined at multiple CCodes and tree is under one Group company

      But I don't think same controlling area can be defined in multiple company levels...

      You are proposing...company A()                            ()  CCodes 1000/2000/3000

                                                    ()    Controlling area ()

                                   company B ()                           ()  CCodes 4000/5000

        I think ...difficult
