The new functions allow you to specify the time of the intention for sale for a consolidation unit based on specific consolidation groups. They also allow you to reclassify all balance sheet accounts as two target accounts ( Assets Held for Sale  or Liabilities Held for Sale ). Due to the intention for sale, a group-dependent revaluation of assets held for sale may also be required. However, you cannot report minority interest for this revaluation. The new functions allow you to suppress the adjustment of minority interest for reported financial data for the relevant document types.  As of the time of the intention for sale, the depreciation of assets must be suppressed in line with the new regulations. Using the new functions, you can revoke the planned depreciation of assets or liabilities that you previously posted using a Capitalization and Valuation Allowances   task by consolidation group. You can also suppress the posting of depreciation adjustments in documents of tasks for the elimination of interunit profit/loss in transferred assets  . Discontinued Operations When an entire business area is discontinued, you have to report the equity holdings adjustments separately. Using the new functions, you can reclassify all income statement accounts as one single target account ( Discontinued Operations ) as of the time for discontinued operations. Effects on System Administration To configure the settings for the new function, you perform the following steps in the consolidation workbench: Activation in the Consolidation Area To activate the new functions, you select the Assets Held for Sale   checkbox in the settings for the consolidation area. Customizing for Consolidation Groups In the consolidation group attributes, you could previously specify the time (year and period) of first consolidation and divestiture accounting for each consolidation unit. You can now also specify the times (year and period) of the intention for sale and of discontinued operations. Customizing for Consolidation Unit Combinations In a matrix organization, you can override for consolidation unit combinations the times of the intention for sale and of discontinued operations that you entered for each of the dimensions of the consolidation unit characteristics. On the Table Display   tab page, you can enter these times directly.  On the Matrix Display   tab page, you can enter these times on the detail screen. To display the detail screen, choose the Detail   option in the context menu of the checkbox for a combination. Customizing for Reclassification In Customizing for reclassification tasks , the new Global Settings   group box is displayed with the following checkboxes: o   Assets Held for Sale   If you select this checkbox, you can use this task to reclassify balance sheet accounts as the target accounts Assets Held for Sale   or Liabilities Held for Sale  . You can also reclassify income statement accounts as the target account Discontinued Operations  . If you select this checkbox, you must enter a non-initial value for the processing type of assets held for sale   in the Customizing settings for the trigger selection of the reclassification method  that you assign to the task. This value determines whether the task handles consolidation units (or partner units) with an intention for sale or discontinued operations or equity-method investee units with intention for sale. o   Value Allowance of Assets/Liabilities   If you select this checkbox, you can use the task to revoke the planned depreciation of assets or liabilities that you previously posted using a Capitalization and Valuation Allowances   task by consolidation group. In Customizing for reclassification, there is also a new Check Settings   node. When you execute this function, the system checks the consistency of reclassification tasks for assets held for sale as well as for reclassification methods and document types assigned for these tasks. Customizing for the Location of Values for Consolidation of Investments If a revaluation of the assets held for sale is required, you must post this manually to posting level 30 using a document type that is part of the calculation base for consolidation of investments. Minority interests must be ignored. In Customizing for the location of values for consolidation of investments, there is a new No Minority Interest   column in the Calculation Base   screen area. In this column, you must select the checkbox for the manual document type that you used to post the revaluation of assets held for sale. Depending on your requirements, you may need to configure additional Customizing settings to ensure functions are applied accurately.

Previously, when you selected Reported Financial Data   or All Data Types   as the data type in a data collection method of the type Load from Data Stream   or Copy  , the system also automatically read any data records from the source environment in which all key figures were zero. If the breakdowns for the source data are incorrect, the consistency check generates errors when writing the data to the target environment although the key figures actually have no values. These types of errors in the source data are irrelevant when the Delete All   update mode is used. If you activate the new business function, you can specify that the system is to ignore these data records in which all key figures are zero when it loads from data streams or copies the Reported Financial Data   or All Data Types   data types when update mode Delete All   is used. Effects on System Administration To activate the new functions, select the new Ignore Data Records with Key Figure Zero   indicator in Customizing for the Load from Data Stream   or Copy   methods.
