Evaluations in balance sheet valuation


Release 4.0A contains the following new functions for analyzing data for balance sheet valuation purposes:

1. The reasons for LS>price variances can be examined with greater flexibility, as you can choose a base price and a price for comparison from a pre-defined set. A short text can be created for both texts. This is used as the column title in the log.
2. In the Balance sheet values per account list you can have the material values displayed on up to four levels. You can compare this list with the results of various balance sheet methods (market prices, inventory costing, range of coverage, rate of movement, LIFO, FIFO). You can create a short text for the column header for every level in the list.
3. The evaluation level can be varied, without this requiring any changes in Customizing.
4. Tax and commercial valuation prices in the material master now refer to a separate price unit to counteract any possible inconsistencies in valuation at the change of the fiscal ear. To begin with, the price unit is set to initial and as time goes on is built up from the price unit of the previous year.
