Balance Sheet account can be posted to WBS in S4 HANA 1709

In my company implemented S4 HANA 1709. I found that it is possible to post to "Balance Sheet" GL account type in combination with regular (not statistical) WBS element.There is any Cost Element category assigned to this BS GL account. AVC control done using FM module.

How is it possible to post CO Cost Object WBS to GL account without any Cost Element Category assigned?

    You can register a controlling object into whatever G/L account, whether it is defined as cost element or not. The existance of cost element secures creation of controlling document and registration checks implemented in controlling module. Introducing a cost object, e.g. WBS, in G/L account which is not defined as cost element, could nevertheless serve you for reporting or business rules. There is a SAP-standard message issued, when such a registry is done, but it can be controlled via message workbench OBA5.

    Please create the Balance Sheet Account with Cost element Category 90 in FS00 or KA01 as this is the pre-requisite for posting to B/S accounts with WBS (PS).

    This is needed for you Inventory accounts as well if you are purchasing on a Project.

    I hope this issue was resolved, but however for better understanding just providing my input.

    In ECC :

    We have a Cost Element Category "90" for Statistical Cost Element for B/S account for budgetary control.

    In S4 HANA - 1709 :

    We have an option "Record account assignment" check box available in Control Tab in GL Master Record. It serve the same purpose.

    Best Regards
