Hello Dasu,

This situation is not unique to your client, but universal to enterprise operating with two or more company codes / business lines / products.

Recording inter-profit centre transactions at sales price is not that easy; however with the standard functionalities this can be achieved. SAP system has provided various functionalities with the combination of currency and valuation which is more commonly known as u201CTransfer Pricing or Multiple Valuation Approachesu201D.

You define your currency and valuation profiles in Customizing under Controlling  Controlling General  Multiple Valuation Methods/Transfer Prices  Basic Settings  Maintain currency and valuation profile.

You assign the currency and valuation profile in Customizing under Controlling  Controlling General  Multiple Valuation Methods/Transfer Prices  Basic Settings  Assign profile to controlling area.

You activate the profile under Controlling  Controlling General  Multiple Valuation Methods/Transfer Prices  Activation  Activate multiple valuation approaches

This functionality is very powerful and interesting.

I hope you can enjoy with this.

Enjoy SAP!
