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.
