We have few Companies in the group. There is an amalgamtion happening between Parent Company and one of its subsidiaries. Parent Company uses SAP and Subsidiary uses another accounting system. We need to transfer all the assests and liabilities to the parent company. How can we record the Fixed assets of subsidiary compnay in parent company books? We need to record both Cost and Accumulated depreciation as it is in the parent company asset register.

Hi Tharindu,

a great tool for integrating data from a third-party system into an SAP system, is the SAP Business Connector. It provides out-of-the-box tools for

  • data transformation and data mapping (from third-party format into the necessary format of the SAP system, e.g. RFC tables or IDocs)
  • communication via various protocols (RFC/IDoc to one side and HTTP, FTP, Email, JDBC, flatfile to the other side)
  • encryption, digital signature, zip/gzip, Base64 etc.
  • logging and monitoring
  • and if the povided graphical low-code/no-code capabilities do not suffice for you purpose, you can easily plugin your own custom logic or third-party libraries written in Java or C/C++

Hi Ulrich,

Thank you for advice.

Our subsidiary have very limited number of assets and therefore, we can mannually transfer assets to parent company. My concern is, How can I record the Costs and Accumulated Depreciation balances in SAP assets codes and continue with the previous depreciation rates!

Hi Tharindu,

so yours is more a business level / application level question, not a technical question, right? (E.g., which BAPI or IDoc type or SAP table to use for the data, but not, how to get the data from A to B?!) In that field I cannot help. You would probably need someone with SAP FI knowhow. Perhaps check, whether you can assign additional tags from the FI application level to your question.

Best Regards, Ulrich

Hi Tharindu,

Be sure to solve the problem before typing the code (old saying). The Avon case is famous for messing everything up, with millions of US dollars in loses. Be sure to gather together the SAP financial consultants with the old managers, who really know those small details, in the subsidiary companies. Good luck.
