    Hi

    Cost centre assignment is done through a cost element created. In the caase of balance sheet accounts, no cost element can be created. So no assignment would be possible through that route.

    Regards

    Hi,

    The previous explanantion is not quite accurate...

    Asset accounts are an exception. You can define them as cost elements, and, thus assigning cost centre to them. These are elements of type 90. Of course, the posting on such CE will be only statistical.

    Hi Eli,

    But my company like to use the cost center when then buy an asset.

    In other words, when they recorded a purchase, for the account debit of the fixed assets, register to a cost center

    GL Account Asset (cars) + cost center

    bank (for example)

    It is understood?

    Tks

    • Hi,

      This scenario is not possible. When you create a PO for an asset, the account assignment is set to A, and not to K. An asset could be assgined, though, to an internal order/WBS which is assigned to a cost centre. Thus, you will have a statistical posting on the CO object.

      You can read more on type 90 at the link I gave in my previous message.

      Regards,

      Eli
