symbolic account configuration for different company code

Hi Experts,

Its regarding symbolic account configuration for different company code.

Example: /3F1 wage type using for company code 5000 and company code 6000. 

- 5000 Company Code- Symbolic account 1023 (For /3f1) (Feature- PPMOD- Maintained)

- 6000 Company Code- Symbolic account 1023 (For /3f1) (Fature PPMOD- Maintained)

Question:

For different company code wage types is it required to create different symbolic account (or) to maintain single symbolic account and differentiate by using feature PPMOD?

Regards,

Prasad

    Hi Prasad,

    As per my knowledge, Its depending on Posting Key and Chart Of accounts, we can change symbolic Accounts.

    To link a wage type to a symbolic account, what you mentioned (single symbolic account & PPMOD feature) suffices.

    However, to link a symbolic account to a GL account, you need to carry this out based on Chart of accounts.

    Usually SAP system does not have the option to differentiate a wage type based on company code i.e /3F1 for 5000 /3F1 6000 it is common for both thhe company codes but we have options to differentiate them with the help of schema, custom rules and custom wage types.

    The other way is when you are saying different company code  i.e you must be having different employee groups for different company codes so we can take the help of PPMOD and post into different G/L Accounts.

    Let say /3F1 Company code 5000 Company code 6000

    Employee group 1 for 5000 company code

    Employee group 2 for 6000 comapny code

    /3F1 - 01 - XXXXXXX - (Comapny code 5000 - Chart of accounts 5000, XXXXXXX is part of chart of accounts 5000)

    /3F1 - 02 - YYYYYYY - (Company code 6000 - Chart accounts 6000, YYYYYYY is part of Chart accounts 6000)

    When we have 2 different comapny codes which means they must be having 2 different set of account books and G/L Accounts so while posting we refer ESG groupings with the help of PPMOD and post the same wage type to 2 different accounts.

    I hope you understand.

    Regards
