Intercompany elimination at legal entity and profit centre level



I have a question regarding intercompany elimination. As far as I understand, BPC can only hold one Interco dimension per application. If you want to perform an intercompany elimination for two dimensions which do not roll up into each other, two separate applications are needed. Please see example below to clarify:

Data is reported the following way:

Legal entity Profit Centre Account Interco Value

The problem is that the profit centre hierarchy does not roll up into the legal entity hierarchy mainly because there are profit centres set up as legal entities. Consequently, the legal entity hierarchy and the profit centre hierarchy are two independent hierarchies.

The business requirement is to have an intercompany elimination at profit centre and legal entity level at the same time (hence requiring two Intercos at the same time). This is needed as some of the profit centres are set up as legal entities.

Can someone advise me as to how to resolve this issue? Did anyone come across a similar problem?

Please let me know if you require any further clarifications.
