Dear Friends,

Currently we are in the process of enabling Trading partner in Customer and Vendor master for our company code to eliminate excess GL accounts in P&L and Balance Sheet.

our organization structure is we have one legal entity ( one company code example "5555" )

our group companies are using Non SAP ERP systems

we used to buy and sell to our group companies say example we have 20 Group company customers and 10 group companies vendor ( we used to sell our product to 20 group companies and used to buy from our 10 group companies)

we enabled the field status variant Trading partner for our customer and vendor master is required field.

now we have conflict we have only one company code "5555" so we need to create only one trading partner as "SSSS" and assign all the group companies vendor and customer master data trading partner as " SSSS"

Else

we need to create separate trading partner for all the 20 group customers.

Kindly advice one trading partner is sufficient or multiple trading partner is required.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply,

current setup is we have only one legal entity in SAP

we have 20 group companies customer ( example 1 to 20 ) and 10 group Vendors ( example 21 to 30 )

in current setup business using 20 customer reconciliation account for 20 group company code customer master

and 10 vendor reconciliation account for 10 vendor master

because of this Balance sheet has more GL accounts

to reduce GL in Balance sheet we suggested please use single Trading partner in Vendor and customer master

and please use one GL recon account for Vendor master and one GL recon account for Customer master.

But from business side what they are asking what will be the impact if we creating 20 different Trading partner for customer master and

10 Trading Partner for vendor master

but our side we advised only one Trading partner is sufficient for all the vendor and customer master because we have only one legal entity

but from business side they are very eager to know what will be the impact if we have more Trading Partner .

Thanks for you reply Its report per company code only.

not report per group.

the following reason we got from business point business said we have 20 different group companies in different countries so we need 20 Trading partner ( this the answer we got from business side )

Hi Senthil,

Why do you need to create 20 Trading Partners if you have only one legal entity in your SAP ? Is it because of consolidation ?

You could créate as many Trading Partners as you want, 1 or 20 depends on the information you need to report (per Company or as a Group)

Kind Regards
