Document splitting is a new functionality in New GL. A document splitting characterstic generally corresponds to a field in data structure. It allows to display documents in different ways. In the representation, line items are split according to selected dimensions. This will facilitate to draw up complete financial statements for the selected dimensions at any time.

Using the document splitting procedure, we can also create a segmented display of a (partial) balance sheet according to a set of legal requirements (for example, IAS) or according to areas of responsibility.

In addition, you can allocate at the time of posting additional costs (such as realized or valuated exchange rate differences) to the CO account assignment objects to which the costs relate. Assets can also be subsequently capitalized at the time of posting.

You can use the document splitting procedure to split up line items for selected characteristics (such as payables lines by profit center/Business area/segment) or to effect a zero balance setting in the document for selected characteristics (such as segment).

Document splitting is one of the function in NEW G/L

Getting a financial statement at Comany code level is easy since it is balaned when entries are posted in finance or from other application module.

If a company is interested in getting complete financial statement like P&L and Balance Sheet we require a tallied Trial Balance for those characteristics like Profit centre or Business Area.

Document splitting helps to split the accountig balances like payables/receivables etc for characteristics like profit center.

Note: If New G/L is activated in a client every FI document generated in the system will have two view like Entry view and G/L view.And G/L view will be used for drawing Balance sheet for any characteristics say profit center.

A vendor invoice is posted below for ur reference
