Elimination Method

In Intercompany Matching and Reconciliation (ICMR), you define an elimination method by assigning a reconciliation case and posting scenario to it. When you run elimination, the posting logic defined in the posting rule applies to the specified display groups of the reconciliation case.

This configuration is performed in SAP S/4HANA for Group Reporting.

Under reconciliation close, you have the option: Define Elimination Methods

After creating the elimination method, it is assigned to an elimination task in the Consolidation Monitor for triggering elimination runs.


Before defining elimination methods, the following prerequisites must be met:

  • You have created reconciliation cases by using the Define Reconciliation Cases app.
  • You have created scenario-based posting rules by using the Define Posting Rules app.
The u00em Elimination Method has reconciliation close u00rc and automatice posting scenario sc001

In settings, assign the desired posting rule to the elimination method.

You can make more assignments of posting rules to display groups if necessary. In this way, different posting logic can be used by data-region.
