    You should change company code only if (1) there is no valuated stock at the site levelĀ  (2) site profiles are same between company codes (3) Purchase Organization and Distribution chains are also changed accordingly.

      Hi Anis,

      Although in this , it would be good to create new site for this company and after that you can move stock from old to new one.

      however if you still want to use same site for new compnay , you can do. But before that please do some prereqisites--

      1. No open documents like PO should be there.

      2. Profit and loss should be finalised for the previous company as after changing to new one, adjustment will not possible.

      With Regards,

    Hi Anis ,

    We had done the same company code change for many site in our ERP system.

    Here are steps :

    1.clear all the open document (but PO for out vendor can post to new company code directly),expand you customer master data .

    2.stock initiate reverse movement 562 for old company ,change Company code of site ,stock initiate movement type 561 for new company clearing between old company and new one .

      Hello Deyi,

      I'm currently investigating changing CC for open stores.

      Regarding you point 2. Is it strictly necessary to do that point?

      I did a test in a copy of our prod system, and I did not take out the inventory before swithcing  CC. Then I did an POS Billling and all the articles movements was booked to the new CC and everything looks fine.

      Of cource the new company needs to pay the old one for the stock, but I can find no techincal reason to do it. Have you found that?
