Valuation area in FI-CA (for example, according to German HGB or US GAAP) to be used during year-end closing.

You can display different valuation approaches and post to different accounts with an alternative valuation area.

The valuation result can be saved per line item and used for other closing operations (for example, sorting).

Note that the valuation differences saved are not used to calculate the actual exchange rate differences.


The local currency is valuated according to the German HGB with the lowest valuation principle; the result is transferred to the appropriate accounts.

In addition, a valuation according to US GAAP and current exchange rates should be carried out; the result is transferred to other accounts.

Now only the required accounts are displayed for the desired closing.
