Several Australian businesses have requirements for multi-company configuration in SAP Business One. The common requirement is either for a SAP Business One multi-company requirement in Australia (several different legal entities / ABN’s in Australia) or global multi-company – when an Australian company has multiple legal entities overseas. There are three common inter-company requirements for SAP Business One :

Inter-company trading (one company in the group purchases stock and / or services from another group company).

Inter-company GL allocations– allocations of income and expenses across SAP Business One branch companies.

Financial / multi-level consolidation – consolidated reporting across multiple legal entities.

The great news is that SAP Business One Intercompany has the solution for your inter-company requirements including :
