Valuation View In CO

Dear Expert,

My client already used SAP Ecc 6.0 with standard cost.

Now they want change primary currency from IDR to USD and Controlling area still want to use IDR. Then activate ML and Actual Cosing.

1. For this Request i able to use pararell currency in FI but in CO should i use Legal Valuation for Company Code and Group Valuation for CO Area in this situation where company code and controlling area user different currency ?

2. For CO Area can i use old CO Area or Create New One ?

3. For Chart Of depreciation can i use Old COA or create new COA ?

4. If i use several valuation, can i only use Legal and Group Valuation without Profit Center valuation active ? what is the impact ?

5. If i use several valuation should i run cost estimate in each Valuation (Legal and Group ? )

6. In maintain currency and valuation profile should i assign currency company code currency (10) and Group Currency (30) to each Valuation or both i assign to legal valuation ?

7. My client want transaction in Company Code currency will translate using rate in OB08 to Controlling area in transaction Production Order, Coste Estimate.

8. In CKMLCP is there function for running ineach valuation ( Legal and Group ? )

Need advise from expert.

Thank You,

Iwan

    Dear Iwan,

    1. For this Request i able to use pararell currency in FI but in CO should i use Legal Valuation for Company Code and Group Valuation for CO Area in this situation where company code and controlling area user different currency ?

     

    Once if ML is productive, you could not change currencies.

    You set the primary currency per country in the IMG settings in the following menu path

    SAP Netweaver >General Settings>Set Countries-->Define Countries in mySAP Systems.

    If you wish to reconcile with FI, you have to configure currencies in FI using OB22 screen.

    Coming to co, you can configure currencies in currency and valuation profile and assign it to controlling area using 8KEQ ,8KEM

    In ML , you will be having 3 valuation views

    Company code currency legal valuation

    Group currency Group valuation

    Group currency Profit center valuation

    Although if you are using different company code currency and controlling area currency and wish to use the same in ML, they will get transferred directly to ML.

    Here your question is little bit unclear, could you explain more

    2. For CO Area can i use old CO Area or Create New One ?


    You can use old CO area and why would you want to create New


    3. For Chart Of depreciation can i use Old COA or create new COA ?


    You can use Old COA and why would you want to create New


    4. If i use several valuation, can i only use Legal and Group Valuation without Profit Center valuation active ? what is the impact ?

    No impact if you are using legal and group valuation . Once if PCA is active you have to activate profit center valuation view otherwise not necessary



    5. If i use several valuation should i run cost estimate in each Valuation (Legal and Group ? )

        No need  to run for each valuation


    6. In maintain currency and valuation profile should i assign currency company code currency (10) and Group Currency (30) to each Valuation or both i assign to legal valuation ?


    In C and V profile, you should assign company code currency 10 to legal valuation , Group currency 30 to group valuation .


    7. My client want transaction in Company Code currency will translate using rate in OB08 to Controlling area in transaction Production Order, Coste Estimate.


    It wont translate using rate in ob08 to controlling area in transaction production order, Cost estimate


    8. In CKMLCP is there function for running ineach valuation ( Legal and Group ? )


    No need to run separately for each valuation view and you can view the results in Accounting 1 TAB of material master



    Cheers,

    Hi Iwan

    Few important points: In 1:N situation must be  share same chart of accounts and same fiscal year variant (FYV)

    If some of the companies follow a diff FYV and still you want to have single co area, in that case you have to use parallel ledger. The companies will have to have same FYV as others. But, can report in parallel ledger on the basis of local FYV.

    Iif your companies are spread across globe, separate controlling areas are always best option as that provides better control. You can have period lock settings in CO only at the co area level. So, it would be better managed at 1-1 basis

    A single controlling area may easily consolidate your CO reports, however your cost center hierarchy and other master data hierarchies would also become huge if contr area is one..

    The above points are very important to understand while taking decision.

    Hi

    Your questions are mixed up with so many things....You must put your question based on definite requirement.....

    1. If your CCode and CO area is 1: 1 relation then always CO area currency is same as CCode currency

    2. If your CO area and CCode having 1:N relation then it is better to maintain CO area currency as Group currency and CCode currency as per local currency though you may have other option also

    Now in regards to ML :

    1. ML / Actual costing ha 2 special benefits

        a) Multiple valuation approach where you will get legal Valuation ( CCode currency), Group Valuation (Gr Currency) and PC valuation (as per PC Currency)

       b) Actual costing

    Based on the above basic parameters you have to define whole structure..please revert back with specific requirements

    Kamal
