Settlement: Selection of particular GL

Hi Guys,

I was running the settlement for a particular WBS Element, but I noticed in case of WBS the system booking some realized and unrealised foreign exchange, and get settled during settlement.

However as per discussions with auditors such un- realised forex should not be capitalised. There are 10 GL account for a particular WBS and I want to select only 2 and perform the settlement. Is this possible? Accordingly I request to kindly advise on whether I can untick some the Forex GL's before WBS settlement and settle the remaining GL's during WBS settlement.


Regards,

Debanjan

    Hi,

    If I understand your query correctly, you want to avoid the Unrealized Exchange Rate Difference (UXD) booked on the WBS from Settlement and only RXD should be settled.

    In my opinion, would you be able to prevent the booking of such costs on WBS till they are ready to get capitalized? A FI Consultant in your team would be able to help with this based on the FI processes.

    SAP picks up all the costs for a particular period for settlement and settles them to the relevant receiver.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Hi,

    You have two options, one option is FX differences are not posted to WBS-elements, but elsewhere with default account assignment. Usually that is a Finance Cost Center.

    If for any reason you want them on individual WBS-elements the settlement process can be configured with allocation structure and particular accounts can be settled to Cost Center.

    Also from AuC to the Final Asset you can select a line items settlement and settle specific accounts manually to Cost Center.

    Regards,

    Hello,

    yes it is possible to settle wbs to both GLs which you want to select during settlement.

    but for that you have to check settlement profile is that enable to more then one receiver object or not?
