To configure a reclassification method, go to the S/4HANA for Group Reporting configuration screen.
Two rules (or sequences) are used to eliminate revenue and cost:
- 010 - Eliminate revenue for the seller.
- 020 - Eliminate cost for the buyer.
In the following image for sequence 010, the triggering consolidation unit will be posted. In this case, the triggering unit is the seller.
The S-IUE-PL-GP trigger includes items with the IUE-PL-GP elimination attribute which is being used to select the 411100 Sale of goods FS item.
Because the source is blank, the trigger FS item will receive a debit posting. The offsetting entry is posted to FS item 41200D based on the S-ELIMINATION-TARGET attribute value for FS item 411100.
In the following image for sequence 020, the partner consolidation unit will be posted. In this case, the partner unit is the buyer.
The trigger for sequence 020 is the same as for 010 because revenue is the basis for the elimination.
Based on the S-ELIMINATION-TARGET, FS item 41200D will receive a debit posting for the buyer. The offsetting entry is posted to FS item 412200 Cost serv/mat based on the Z-COGS role.
