    Hi Ashish,

    Please refer to the Help document 'Guide: Setting Up Your Org Structure'

    Each company Org structure settings may differ from one another, am just providing some basic settings of Org Structure and other follow up settings.

    1. Create Org Structure > Company
    Under Structure > org unit, business residence, profit & cost center
    Maintain address to it
    activate it


    When you activate a Business Residence in the Organizational Management work center, the system creates a site in the Supply Chain Design Master Data Work Center.
    You have to add location layout there e.g. Ship-From Location, Ship-To Location, Storage Location, etc.,

    3. You have to maintain the Logistics Models from Logistics Models view of the Warehousing and Logistics Master Data work center.

    4. Then add Tax Authorities from Tax Management Work Center.

    5. Map Company in the Product master data.

    6. create chart of accounts from import or copy the existing
    if copied from existing then the account determination profile will be copied automatically

    7. check the activity: Generally accepted accounting principles
    create set of books and maintain general and company settings and maintain one default soB

    Assign fiscal years to your company

    9. Maintain open and close periods

    Technically these are some basic settings with which you be able perform business processes in the SAP BYD system.

    Please let me know if you looking for some very specific setting of Org Structure that you want to define.
