Best Practice for legally required Chart of Account

Dear all,

our client has a global defined chart of account. Now they are going to implement the SAP template in France, Belgium and Russia. These countries have legally required chart of accounts. What is best practice to fullfill these requirements in SAP.

1) Do I use the alternative account number?

2) Isn't this field on the central level of the account master data record? How do I manage to realize the different number for Russia and for France at the same time?

Thank you very much for your help.

Best regards Timo

you will create a company code per country. this code will have that country currency.

You will maintiain two chart of account. 1. operative. 2. country chart of account.

You have to map 1 as to 1 between operative to country chart of account.

When france cleck will post the fb60 he will post in operative chart of account. As you have mapped it to country coa u can see details in that coa also.

Warm Regards
