Creating Consolidation Groups

ABC Corporation needs three consolidation groups, as consolidated financial statements are mandatory for the World, America, and Europe regions.

To create a consolidation group, input the following data:

  • Consolidation group ID
  • Short and medium text
  • Consolidation frequency: Monthly
  • Correspondence: this isn't used by group reporting.
  • Methods: Assign validation method. This assignment is used when Consolidated Data Validation is run.

In the following images, you can see an example.
