Is It Possible to Extend Fiscal Year Variant?


guido mauro asked Jul 9, 2012 | Replies (2)

Hi all, I have to change fiscal year variant, from a non calendar fiscal year (september1-31 august) to a calendar fiscal year (jenuary1-december 31). I'd like to extend my FY variant and use months from 9 to 12 (2012) like period 13 to 16. Is it possible to do this? MM effects? And if there are two companies for the same controlling area it's possible to change the FY variant only for a company? Any help will be appreciated. Mauro

Hi, As per my knowledge, in controlling area case, posting period will be same for both company while spl. periods can be different!

Thanks, Deepak

Is it possible- Yes. But there is an OSS note 672255 that discourages/cautions the same. You have to use SAP service to evaluate the potential impact.

Two Fiscal Periods Within SAP ECC 6.0


riqbal asked May 23, 2012 | Replies (1)

My company is on SAP ECC 6.0. Can we set-up two fiscal ending periods one for US GAAP and the other for local statutory reporting without requiring a new Controlling Area or extensive manual adjustments under local gl accounts? We have many intercompany shipment transactions.

Hi, As per your below mail I understood that you require two fiscal year variants, i.e. one for USGAAP and other for local statutory reporting. This can be achieved by setting up a new *Non-Leading ledger* with a different fiscal year Variant ,posting period variant and if you want you can assign different currency apart from your leading ledger and assign it

to your company code. By doing that you will be having two ledgers one for US GAAP and other for local statutory reporting. Hope this helps you.

Controlling Area Assignment


Niranjan Yandamuri asked Jan 20, 2012 | Replies (4)

Dear All, We have 2 Company Codes, using the same chart of accounts, and having different fiscal year variants, How can I assign both the Company codes to the same Controlling Area. I know one solution would be creation of separate Controlling Area for each of the Company Codes. I would like to know how to achieve this requirement using Leading and Non Leading Ledgers. Looking forward to your reply. Niranjan

Hi, IMG,Financial Accounting(new), Financial Accounting Global Settings(new), Ledgers, Ledger, Define and activate non leading ledgers.

Here you can assign Fiscal Year Variants, Variant to the Non leading Ledgers. Also you can maintain non ledger specific Currency setting(similar to OB22). But note that only those currencies set up for leading ledger can be used for non leading ledger and none additional. Let me know if this was helpful. Regards, Sunil Jadhav

Hi, in my opinion the controlling area and the company codes need the same FY variant - means also the leading ledger. For the non leading ledger you are able to choose another FY variant, because the non leading ledgers are not linked to the controlling area. Cheers, Gerhard

Why don't you simply use the same fiscal year variant (stick to the longest number of periods one) and then adapt this elongated one by ignoring, restricting or disregarding the extra periods you do not need in one of the companies? This may work if the two year variants are K?s (K0,1,2,3 or 4). It will make possible and clear the 2 company codes to 1 controlling area assignment. Bye

Hi The basic pre-requisites for assigning more than one company code under a controlling area are: a. company codes sharing a common operating chart of accounts and b. company codes using the same fiscal year variant These enable cross-company code controlling. After all, one of the fundamental objectives to assign more company codes under controlling area is to enable cross company code controlling. This is possible when the pre-requisites are met.
