11i Setup for LE & OU

Adding a New Operating Unit with LE , here are the steps you need to perform.


  1. Finalize the your organizational structure
  2. Finalize your COA Structure
  3. Finalize SOB criterion which depends on 3 C (Calendar , Chart of account and Currency)

A Note for your COA and LE design

The COA must recognize the real world that the business operates in, and the entities through which its operations are carried out. It must meet the basic requirement that it should provide all financial information by ‘real’ legal entities (as opposed to organizational classifications of business units, divisions etc.). It also allows us to capture information along the dimension by which we hold ourselves out to the real world, and is extremely useful for tax and statutory reporting. The ‘real’ legal entity must be a balancing segment, i.e. it should be possible to extract a self balancing chart of accounts by legal entity. This may not be a requirement for a business division where BS (balance sheet) elements may not be shared and separate information may be required only for the P & L (Profit and Loss) accounts.
