What is the importance of attribute 'BUK'?

Dear Experts,

What is the significance of attribute company code 'BUK' in the org structres? Can we assign multiple values for attribute 'BUK' to a purchasing group to allow it for cross company purchasing?

Why do we need to define this attribute for local/standalone scenario? is it because accounting document against supplier invoice has to be posted in the backend FI system where the company value will be derived from the attribute 'BUK' defined in the SRM system?

Is my understanding correct?

Your input will be highly appreciated.

Thanks and regards,

    Hi Ranjan


    "Company code in the backend system.

    Generally, the user inherits the company code from his/her company. If you want to overwrite the value inherited from the company you should define the company code via this attribute only.

    You define the company code of the company for the organizational unit assigned to the company on the Function tab.
