    Dear Madan,

    Simple method is

    1. Create a one company code properly with full config.

    2. Copy the company code and create a New company code at Tcode EC01.

    3. Later you can change the desire data in masters.

      All the steps listed above are related to configuration and have to be done. But the most important thing for you is to determine how the data would be distributed from the old company code to the new company codes? What would be the accounting entries generated and how they need to be captured in SAP? What would be the internal reporting, statutory reporting and tax reporting required in the new enviornment? Would any changes in organizational structures need to be met for the same?

      Thanks & Best Regards
