Revamping of Cost centers

Dear Guru`s,

In existing situation few cost centers are created and used but not in proper manner. Now I want to create a new Standard hierarchy for which I will create new cost center groups and cost centers. I will club all similar nature of cost centers in groups and finally create a Standard hierarchy.

Issue is existing cost centers which are wrongly created are used at the time of posting and has cost in it. Now,ideally what should be done in this case.

Please suggest

Regards

Nitisha

    Hi Nitisha,

    Once you have created new CCs, then you can manualy transfer the cost by transaction KB11N by entering Sender and Receiver CC details alongwith Cost element and the amount you want to trasnfer.

    A new CO document will be created which will transfer the amount by nullifying the entry in Sender's CC and cost gets captured in receiver's CC.

    Hope it could help you.

    Regards,

    Siddharth

    Dear,

    After creating all the new cost centers and cost centers hierarchy,You need to link to all the modules like PM, PP etc...As they are linking to the technical objects and Work centers to for calculating activity type cost.

    And also check the "Actual assessment cycle".

    I suggest to delimit the old cost centers with validity date.So that system will not allow users to select old cost centers.

    Deleting may lead you to some inconsistencies in reporting structures of other modules where they already used these cost centers.

    To change the validity period of old cost centers: Use transaction KS02 and once cost center change screen is displayed.

    Goto-->Edit--> Analysis period

    then system will show "Analysis time frame:select" screen.In that screen click on button "Other Period" on right side corner of the screen and then system will pop-up a small screen to enter the validity periods.

    Regards,

    Pardhu

    Hi Nitisha,

    So you want to delete these old cost centers which already have postings?

    In this case, please refer to KBA 1775927 and note 621108.

    Besides, you can delete CO documents that have already been posted with ZKACOR21 (note 175522).


    Best regards, Miya

    • Hi Miya ,

      Deleting is not at all an option as once a cost is posted in cost center it cannot be deleted right....

      What I want to do is to create new cost centers and group them under std. hierarchy but what will happen to the cost which are lying under old cost centers?

      Regards

      Nitisha

    Hi Nitisha,

    Deleting is not at all suggestable as cost centres will be carrying data once it is posted

    Create a new hierarchy and then new cost centre, Use transaction KB11N transfer all the old cost centre data to new cost centre, this should help you out

    Thanks

    Hi Nitisha,

    Since you already know that deletion is not possible with the costs in it. The best option is to delimit the old cost centers after settling the costs in it to the new cost center.

    The system will not allow user to select old cost centers.

    And create a Standard Hierarchy with the new Cost Centers.

    Try it all in the testing system before you try in Prod.
