Indirect Cost Allocations

We are currently transitioning to SAP. I would like to understand the best way to complete an indirect cost allocation based on the following:

We have the Total Costs in a Cost Center that we want to allocate based on SKF for production tons. We would like to use a specific cost element to send and receive the dollars.

These items lead us to using Assessments. However, we would like to not zero the originating cost center, but put the credit to not only the specific cost element, but a specified cost center as well.

Thank you,

    Yes, you can use the assessment cycle to distribute the cost, as per your requirement, you can create a cycle in KSU1, in the segment give the sender cost center, and required cost elements create a group through KAH1 and give the receiver cost center, in the segment header give the receiver tracing factor as actual SKF and in receiver tracing factor tab maintain the SKF master, which you used in KB31N, for actual SKF posting.

    Then execute the cycle so that, only the selected cost elements cost will send it to the receiver cost center and the rest of the cost will be laying on the sender cost center.

    Hi Dena,

    If you do not want transfer full amount to receiver, then you have to maintain how much value you want to transfer to receiver in % as shown in the below screen shot.

    And also you can transfer the amount from specific cost element for the cost center to receiver by maintain under sender/receivers tab.
