With advanced variable numerator allocations, you can:
Allocate amounts from one business unit to other business units.
Base an allocation on a variable, such as head count, square footage, or percentage of use. The allocation percentages change automatically as the variable changes.
Set up budget amounts.
The system calculates variable numerator allocations by computing percentages that are applied to the balance of an account or a range of accounts. You can allocate to a range of subsidiaries and subledgers for an object account if you set up the destination accounts appropriately. The percentages represent fractions of the total of the balances in the accounts that you specify. The balance total is the denominator, and the individual account balances are the numerators of the fractions.
The advanced variable numerator method of computing allocations provides the base functionality that is available in the variable numerator method but also supports more complex allocations and enables destination business unit overrides, based on different types of basis ratios. The advanced method computes both direct and indirect allocations and retrieves source and basis amounts for account balance-based allocations from these tables:
Business Unit Master (F0006)
Account Master (F0901)
Account Balances (F0902)
NOTE: The advanced variable numerator allocations method replaces the variable numerator allocations method, which was not as flexible. The variable numerator allocations method enabled allocations from one business unit to other business units with a common category code value only, and the method required that the basis ratio always be the destination business unit. The advanced variable numerator allocations method does not have those limitations.
NOTE: Advanced Variable Numerator Allocations functionality has been introduced in 9.0 release and subsequent releases as an enhancement. The new functionality has been incorporated in the baseline product and does not require any specific ESU's to be installed.
