More than one Paying Company Code per Sending Company Code

This is related to numerous previous threads, but never has there been a final answer.

Scenario: One company that pays for it's own expenses, but certain expenses is paid for by the parent company. SAP only allows one paying company per sending company. We would thus like to use different payment methods to pay via the different company codes.

Some of the suggestions has been to use BTE 1860/1830 or sample_process_00001860, but no-one has ever confirmed whether this actually works or not.

    Company Code 1 pays for the invoice booked in Company Code 2. This calls for cross company code transaction. When we say cross company, it means we need to create a Reconciliation Account which will have those transaction posted which are cross company

    Let me give you accounting entries:

    1. Invoice Booked in Company 2

    Dr. Expense / Stock

    Cr. Vendor

    2. Payment of above invoice made by Company 1

    Dr. Reconciliation Account

    Cr. Bank

    Simultanseously, in Company Code 2

    Dr. Vendor

    Cr. Reconciliation Account

    The companies has to settle this reconciliation periodically.

    For doing the above, following are the customisation:

    T.Code: OBYA for assigning the reconciliation account

    This account can be a GL / Vendor / Customer

    T.Code: OBVU In company code 2, we will assign paying company as 1.

    Hope the above helps, if yes, please assign points.

    Hello Vincent,

    I appreciate this post is VERY old now but did you get a response from SAP.

    We have the same requirement here where employee reimbursements are paid by another company code and vendor payments are paid within the company code.
