Breakdown category for total items
Should I assigne Breakdown Category for total items?
BDC can be attached even to total items and you are true by saying that it was there in IDES.
How does it works: (BDC for totals)
Assets-has Current and Non Current
Again Current has 3 levels and same as non current.
Now when you assign BDC at Current assets with type only additions (movement type)
Then in the report when u select Current assets system will show only additions happened in the current year.
As per IFRS this is not mandatory, but some client wants only to see these balanaces, in this case they will maintain different FS items instead of maintaining differnt movement types.
(Practically this is done for companies which are following FF upload, because for them it takes long time to prepare data according to the movement types)
So in the above case we can assign BDC for asstes
Hope this will resolve your question "why BDC has to be attached for Totals"..
All the best,
