The functionality for valuing the transfer of goods or services according to legal, group, or profit center valuation is supported as of SAP S/4 HANA 1610. The Functionality is not available in SAP S/4HANA 1511, on-premise edition. Transfer prices provide parallel valuation methods for legal, group, and profit center valuation.
– The legal perspective looks at the business transactions from a company’s point of view. Pricing is driven by legal requirements and tax optimization strategies.
– Profit center valuation looks at profit centers as independent entities within the group.
– The group view considers the group as a whole. The processes are valued by eliminating intercompany/inter-profit center profits.
With the merge of FI and CO into the Universal Journal, a new approach for parallel valuations was implemented:
Transfer prices can be updated within a ledger containing all valuation views or alternatively with separate ledgers per valuation view.
Parallel delta versions for actuals in Controlling are used for statistical line items updating table COEP only. All other actual line items updating table ACDOCA use the new data model.
