Ledger Specific postings to OI accounts

Dear All,

I wanted to understand the scenario for ledger specific postings to the open item (OI) managed G/L accounts for which system throwing errors saying that the postings for OI managed accounts is not possible in terms of sub ledgers, most of balance sheet accounts. I have so many parallel ledgers (non leading ledgers) where users have to do some adjustments during the month end in terms of accrual postings (usually these accounts will be maintained on OI basis), and other adjustments prior to closing the financial statements. In this process, users have to do some postings to the balance sheet accounts (OI basis) as well. Is there any alternative solution to do postings for OI managed accounts (not for sub ledgers) specific to ledgers given by SAP? If not, why SAP is not allowing to do posting to the OI managed accounts for specific to ledgers. I believe, the whole clearing process (real time) takes place without specifying any ledgers, perhaps this is the reason why SAP is not allowing, but in this context, how other companies are addressing this requirement?

And coming to taxes, SAP is saying that the tax computations will not be carried out in the ledger specific postings (e.g. FB50L, FB01L). Is there any logic/process behind to not to carry out the tax calculations for ledger specific postings? Usually, in the real time, the taxes will be specific to country where the corresponding local companies supposed to carry out the taxes without effecting the leading ledger (IFRS) as the taxes are specific to Local GAAPs only. In this scenario, can somebody please advice me as how these scenarios are picturing in the standard SAP system.

Looking forward for your kind help

Thanks & Regards,

    I believe in EhP4, SAP has offered a new solution where by if you activte some Business Extensions called New GL , you can earmark a GL account as OI managed for Leading Ledger and Non OI for Non Leading Ledgers

    You will get a new check box in FS00 "Ledger specific OI clearing".... This would help you, provided you are on EhP4
