ABC Corporation sells goods between consolidation units for a profit. When the buyer retains the goods in stock, the profit in inventory must be eliminated. Up until now, they have been making this adjustment manually, but now with group reporting, they can automate it.
In our use case, consolidation unit BE manufactured a product at a cost of 9,000 and sold it to consolidation unit FR for 10,000.
The following delivered objects are used to eliminate the internal profit in inventory:
