A company is a business organization or group of businesses whose individual financial statements are prepared in accordance with the applicable commercial law in that country. The company’s financial transactions are recorded in the local currency.

A five-character alphanumeric key identifies a company, known as Company Code. Company codes are a component of your organization’s financial transactions, which are viewed at the company code level. Once a company code has been defined in configuration with all of the required settings, other company codes that are later created should be copied from the existing company code and then changes can be made as per business requirements. This tutorial will teach you how to create a company code in SAP.

A company can have multiple company codes and operations in different locations, but they must all be part of the same business unit.

This article will guide you through the process of creating a new company and assigning the company code in SAP FICO.

Creating A Company

About Company

A company is an organizational unit for which a separate set of financial statements can be prepared based on business rules. A company can be made up of one or more company codes. Local currencies are used by a company to keep track of its transactions. All of a company’s company codes must use the same Chart of Accounts and Fiscal Year for transactions. SAP does not compel you to form a corporation.

Here are The Key Things You Need To Know

You can prepare financial statements that comply with the laws of the country in which the business is located.

  • A company can be assigned one or more company codes.
  • It is a SAP organizational unit that can be selected or deselected.
  • If a company has more than one company code, they should all use the same chart of accounts.
