Working with cost accounting? SAP Business One enables you to distribute the costs across up to five dimensions and achieve more transparency and accuracy of the various costs.

To apply multiple dimensions, Select the “Use Multidimensions” checkbox in Administration > System Initialization > General Settings > Cost Accounting tab

Define the required dimensions under : Financials > Cost Accounting > Dimensions, and apply to each distribution rule the relevant dimension.

When creating documents, the “Distr. Rule” column displays for each line the distribution rules and their respective dimensions.

In addition, you can generate various reports that reflect the distribution of costs across selected dimensions.

Available in SAP Business One, version for SAP HANA and SAP Business One.
