OBA1 / OB09 : FX Revaluation by company code

We have a unique requirement wherein one company code wants to post revaluation to balance sheet adj account that is different from all other company codes are posting to.

However in config i see only chart of account option.

There is a currency option , but that may not be good option because it will impact all the company codes that post in that currency.

So to conclude company code 1 wants to use gl1 and all other company codes want to use gl2

Are there any solutions to this??

Regards,

Prashanth

    Dear Prashanth,

    You can try to define a different "exchange rate difference key", and then u can assign different account to them in OBA1.

    About OB09, I have no idea yet. Please let me know, if you get the right answer.

    Regards

    Hi Prashanth,

    Generally for FX valuations (transational as well as actual transactional gains and losses) you specify account detemination in OB09. If you want the exchange gains and losses to be posted to different exchange gain and loss account then you use the exchange rate difference key in OBA1.

    But this is not meant for the balance sheet adjustment account. So I dont agree with the option of exchange rate duifference key for resolving this.

    Now if you are using ECC 6.0 then you have an option of configuring valuation area then assign different balance sheet adjustment to unique valuation areas. Then when you do Fx valuation (transaction code FAGL_FC_VAL - Foreign Currency Valuation (New)) you can do it for a seperate valuation area for company code 1 and other company codes. The related configuration needs to be done @SPRO - GL Account (New) - Periodic Processing - Valuate.

    Check if this helps you.

    Else if you are not using new general ledger accounting (ECC 6.0) then consider creating a substitution via transactioin code OBBH for your company code for substitute alternate balance sheet adjustment account.

    Hope this helps!

    Regards,

    Prasad

      Thanks Zhu and Prasad for your replys.

      I liked the valuation area approach. However in configuration i see

      1) Define Valuaiton area

      2) Assign Valuation area to accounting principle

      There is no link between valuation area and account assignment. When i go to OBA1 , double click on KDF, I get a pop up for char to accounts but not valuation area..

      Can you give your thoughts on this?

    The valuation area can be seen while entering Chart of Accounts in the first pop up screen and there is a small arrow at the bottom of the pop up which enables to select valuation area.Refer to below KBA
