How to change Fiscal Year Variant in a multicompany environment?

As is:

The R/3 has 10 company codes ("1", "2", etc.) which all has K4 as a Fiscal Year Variant. All CC's are assigned in one controlling area.

Business need:

Company code "1" will have shortened fiscal year 2006, closing 30.6.2006. The next fiscal year is only 6 months, 1.7.2006-31.12.2006. Year 2007 is then again normal K4. The company codes "2" to "10" should remain untouched.

Solution?:

It seems quite impossible to change fiscal year variant in a environment like this, mainly because of multicompany controlling area, am I right?

Currently my suggestion is to run kind of "fake year-end procedure" (with journal entries) at 30.6.2006 and then cancel the entries at 31.12.2006 and run normal year-end. Some reporting issues will arise (e.g. FI-AA) certainly, but I do not know better approach.

Any ides? Thanks in advance!

Regards, Aki

    The Controlling area can only have 1 fiscal year variant. So you can't have one CA and many fiscal year variants. Your idea of journal entries is a very viable approach. Another option maybe they could switch to a new company code. Although I like the JE approach better.

    Hello!

    I have the same problem like Aki. Has somebody any other ideas, how I can assign only a part of all company codes to an other controlling area?

    Thanks for your help.
