Business value

Intercompany postings make accounting for two or more companies an easier task for a centralized finance department as well as bookkeepers in intercompany partner companies. We're adding another automated task, automated general journal acceptance, to remove several manual steps in the intercompany accounting process.

Feature details

New fields in the Intercompany Setup page mean that you can set up the company for automatic creation of received intercompany transactions from intercompany partners, posted through the intercompany general journal.

In this release wave, we add a new Intercompany Setup page, and we deprecate the older one. The new feature must be enabled in the Feature Management page.

The new Intercompany Setup page has fields to specify where received intercompany journal transactions are created:

  • Default IC Gen. Jnl. Template
  • Default IC Gen. Jnl. Batch

The entries are not posted, only created in the journal.


If you do not enable the new feature, you will see two search results for Intercompany Setup if you use the in-product search functionality. Then, if you choose the new page, you will be forwarded to the Feature Management page to switch it on. If you have enabled the new feature, the old page will have a link you can select to take you to the new setup page. This is a temporary experience and will go away once the old setup page is fully removed from the product in 2023 release wave 2.

New Intercompany Setup page with two new fields.
