1222370 - Merging of legal entities that become Business units


I want to enter amounts for all merged entities while changing the legal entities into Business units within the FR-IFRS configuration.

For example:

My reporting ID comprises 3 legal entities. After the merger, only one legal entity is left and the other two are considered as being Business units.


In order to assess shareholders' equity and enter data for these new Business units:

1. Should I continue using the company codes after changing their type of reporting unit, e.g. L for legal entities or C for consolidation?

2. In this case, can I still use them in a reporting ID and consolidate them as BUs even though they are outgoing entities after the automatic merger processing?

3. What is the impact of the modification on reverse amounts in Y+1 reserves for the acquiring company for these ex-legal entities?

4. Should I enable the automatic merger processing and create new Business unit entities to associate them to the acquiring company?
