Profit Centre Hierarchy Changes


I am working on a Matrix scenario (Company/Profit Centre both defined as cons units).

I am well aware of the scenarios and steps to take when dealing with company hierarchy changes - either transfers with Org Change through the AFD, or Org Change induced by hierarchy edges (non AFD), and where a company can and cannot be taken off the hierarchy etc.

In the matrix scenario do the same rules need to be applied to the Profit Centre Hierarchy - or is there a little more flexibility in terms of moving units around the hierachy, and moving nodes within the hierarchy.

For example, if a PC is moved from CG A to CG B, should the PC be left in CG A and the master data updated with divesture dates in CG A and 1st Consol dates in CG B. Or can the profit centre be simply moved from A to B - and what should the master data settings be - as per the 1st consol settings in the original group, or with 1st consol settings at the date of the move.

Also - if a hierarchy node is moved in the hierarchy - are there any consequences of that or any master data consdierations ?

    Hi Marsy,

    AFAIK, you need to follow same rules for moving the profit centerss around and within the hierarchy as applicabble for company codes.

    Best Regards,

      Thanks UR

      I have since discovered that in theory one should follow the same rules as for companies - however if the Profit Centre is not used in COI postings - then one can get away with not sticking to these rules exactly - bearing in mind that there may be some reporting impacts, and odd postings due to the PGC postings.
