Inter-company expenses


Hi all,

Consider the example:

Assume that there are 3 companies belonging to the same business group, represented as 3 different company codes, say A, B & C, in the same SAP system [P01].

Now, company A incurs expenses on behalf of companies B & C say travel expenses of the MDs of companies B & C.


Inter-company clearing accounts are set-up between the company codes in the SAP system [P01] and hence Inter-company posting of expenses happen as below:

Books of A:

Dr Inter-company B A/c 5

Dr Inter-company C A/c 5

Cr Bank / Vendor for expenses 10

Books of B:

Dr MD's Travel exps A/c 5

Cr Inter-company A A/c 5

Books of C:

Dr MD's Travel exps A/c 5

Cr Inter-company A A/c 5

Can anyone let me know the relevant program through which this functionality has been enabled in SAP FI.


Assume that company A is on an SAP system [P02] that is different from that of the other company codes B & C [P01].

Now, taking the same example as above, is it possible to use the same standard SAP inter-company functionality in FI to post the inter-company expenses from company A to companies B & C?

Is there is any other alternative solution ?

Some gyan please..
