BPC Consolidaiton - Cutover strategy
We are implementing BPC-NW 7.5 or consolidation.
The go-live date is in the mid of the financial year. We follow calendar year as financial year and the go-live will be on 1-Aug-11.
My understanding is that we will need to upload balances (with Transaction types wherever required) as on the begning of the financial year (1-Jan-2011) as well as on the date of golive (1-Aug-2011)? This needs to be done to get opening balances with proper movement types. Is this correct?
Now, assuming if the above statement is correct, how will the changes during the financial year be taken care of. E.g. We need to consolidate some of the entities using Equity method. If there is a change in holding % somewhere in June 2011 (which is before go-live) how will the system take care of this?
Thanks a lot for your advice in advance.
