Background documentation Affiliated Companies: Vendor Master Records  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure

If invoices are sent to companies which are members of your consolidation group, you have to include these companies in consolidation. All sales revenues originating from business transactions within the corporate group have to be eliminated (elimination of intercompany revenue and expense). To enable the system to eliminate these revenues, you need to specify a standard, corporate-wide company ID in the Trading partner field in every vendor master record set up for an affiliated company. The consolidation system uses this number to identify intercompany revenues and expenses for consolidation purposes.
