Goal

Starting to use the intercompany segment to support Intracompany Balancing Rules and Intercompany Accounting may cause conflicts with the existing security rules.
The intercompany segment shares the same value set and security rules as the balancing segment.

For example, if the organization has companies 01, 02, 03 and 04 sharing the same ledger the current security rules may prevent these companies from posting transactions to one another.
Instead, the companies must agree on the transactions, then manually enter and post their respective side of the transaction.
Should the intercompany segment adopt the same security rules, automatic intercompany balancing would conflict with the security rules.
How to resolve this conflict?
