Intercompany Elimination – Key Points
Intercompany elimination removes any transactions between the consolidation units so that only transactions with 3rd parties remain.
Intercompany elimination does not require specific intercompany accounts because the internal criteria used is based in part on the partner consolidation unit dimension.
As intercompany data is reported by both entities, the two-sided elimination approach is used to trigger the elimination.
The elimination can only take place if the source data is already translated into group currency.
