Intercompany Elimination Possibilities

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.
