Intercompany settlements ensure that each company’s net balance equals zero i.e. debits equal credits. If your business enters transactions between companies, the companies will be out of balance unless you create and post intercompany balancing entries. You can either create these settlements yourself or choose a method of intercompany settlements to use and have the system create them automatically. You can select one of the following intercompany settlement methods to use:

NOTE: Configured Hub method was initally introduced in 8.9 release as part of enhancement <Bug 12477917> but was incorporated in other releases of EnterpriseOne later on.

When you post transactions using one of these methods, the system creates journal entries for intercompany settlements based on automatic accounting instructions (AAIs). The system tracks the transaction settlements through subledgers. Each company that is involved in an intercompany settlement has an automatic offset to the appropriate intercompany account with the subledger equal to the address book number of the offsetting company. The system uses the subledger field to record the other company that is involved in the transaction.

Example: A typical intercompany transaction between Companies 00001 (1.1110) and 91009 (91009.1105) will look like as follows:

CompanyAccount NumberDocument
00001 1.1110 JE     -100.00
91009 91009.1105 JE     100.00
00001 1.1291 AE 00091009 A 100.00
91009 91009.1291 AE 00000001 A -100.00
NOTE: It is recommended to manually reconcile intercompany settlements on a periodic basis by running the following integrities:
  • Companies in Balance (R097001) <Document 664778.1>
  • Intercompany Accounts in Balance (R097011) <Document 1383141.1>
