Business ByDesign Financial Consolidation - Parallel Ledgers

Dear Experts,

I am assuming I have more than one financial reporting entity. Can I apply financial consolidation using SAP Business ByDesign? For example in S/4HANA FI, there are parallel ledgers made for that purpose. Isn't the same possible with SAP Business ByDesign? For example, can I have certain ledger for the group reporting at SAP Business ByDesign?

Thank you very much for your help.

Best Regards,

    in case you want parallel accounting, refer to the concept of set of books. It is comparable to parallel ledgers, but comprising more than just one ledger - allowing to have parallel valuations for stocks, foreign currency remeasurement, revenue recognition, fixed assets, company currency and so on.

    Important - start with the set of books you need (e.g. local GAAP plus IFRS for conslidation) from beginning, adding a second set of book later is not possible so far.

    Best regards,
