Company code consolidation
I have a question regarding Company consolidation.
I have five company codes each using the same Chart of account. Now I want to do the consolidation of company codes. How do I go about it ? Please advise the best method.
Can I use the group chart of account and create a financial statement version and select the group account numbers in it ?
If that is the case, I am doubtful about how we can adjust inter-unit business eliminations, etc.
When do we need to use EC-CS ? Should I use this in my scenario ? Do I need to create a group chart of account for EC-CS and assign the same to the operational chart of accounts ?
If my company codes use different chart of accounts, how the same company codes are consolidated ?
Please guide me briefly.
