We are planning migration from classic GL to New GL and what to be proactive. What are the typical issues that may arise and need to be considered for successful implementation? We have ECC 5.0 and are running PCA and SPL and want to migrate them to New GL with document splitting activated (scenario 3).

I would however pass one bit of advice to you and that is to review OSS note 1070629

There are some very useful questions and answers, and this should help you with the planning of your project.

If you intend to use document splitting in the new General Ledger, activate the function for validating the document splitting in your productive system before the migration date. This means that you should upgrade to ECC 6.0 in one fiscal year, activate document split validation before the end of that fiscal year and migrate to the new General Ledger in the next fiscal year.

If you do not plan to use document splitting in the new General Ledger, you can upgrade to ECC5.0 or ECC6.0 and migrate to the new General Ledger in the same fiscal year.

Keep in mind that the function for validating document splitting is not available in ECC5.0

To check data consistency in the classic General Ledger before the beginning of the first test migration, proceed as follows:

A) Program RFINDEX:

Execute the program RFINDEX twice.

In the first run, choose "Documents vs Indexes" in the selection screen.

In the second run, choose "Indexes vs Documents" in the selection screen.

For more information, see the program documentation.

If the program finds any differences, create a message on SAP Service Marketplace under the component FI-GL-GL-X.

B) Program SAPF190:

Run program SAPF190 for the fiscal year prior to the migration and for the fiscal year in which the migration takes place.

If the program finds any differences, create a message on SAP Service Marketplace under the component FI-GL-GL-X.

C)Program RAABST02:

If you use Asset Accounting, run program RAABST02.

If the program finds any differences, create a message on SAP Service Marketplace under the component FI-AA-AA-B.

D) Program RCOPCA44:

If you use Profit Center Accounting, run program RCOPCA44.

If the program finds any differences, see SAP Note 81374.

Remove all inconsistencies before you start the first test migration

Hope everything helps in migration new GL functionality.
