    Hi Ravi,

    The biggest reason for having separate models is due to security. You can have a different security profile for intercompany that allows all entities to read all data for intercompany, but to only have access to their data for your main Finance model.

    For the matching calculation, this is important as usually one entity wont be able to write to another entity it doesn't have access to. This is a requirement for the matching logic to run.

    However, in the Microsoft based BPC, there is a command to in the logic to ignore security (*INGORE_SECURITY), or a stored procedure could get around the problem. for NW, there is a How-to guide to get around security problems.

    But as Roberto said, both choices are valid.

    Best regards

    Hi Ravi,

    both choices are valid, default SAP IFRS has used another model for intercompany but you can also decide to mantain these in the same model with different datasrc, we do in this manner and calculations are made immediately in default logic (stored procedures).
