and percentages. You can display the plan and actual costs at both cost center and cost element
level.

4.2 Period-End Closing in Overhead Cost Controlling


Purpose
The purpose of Cost Center Accounting is to take the costs incurred in a company and allocate
them to the actual sub-areas that caused them. During the period-end closing, these costs are
distributed to the cost centers through automatic allocation.
By allocating the cost elements to cost centers in Overhead Cost Controlling, you can control
your costs and compare plan and actual costs. The plan/actual comparison at the end of the
period help you to plan, control, and monitor cost behavior. It also supports various analyses of
variances, such as volume variance, price variance, input variance, and quantity variance.
Overhead Cost Controlling is also a prerequisite for further allocating overhead costs to cost
objects (CO-PC), which enables you to conduct a period-specific profitability analysis.

4.2.1 Assessment of Shared Expenses

Use
Assessment is an activity that you perform periodically, during the period-end closing in
Overhead Cost Controlling (CO-OM), in which primary and secondary overhead costs are
assessed from one or more sender objects to one or more receiver objects.
Assessment means that the sending cost center is credited and the receiving cost center is
charged under a freely definable secondary cost element. The original cost elements that were
charged by the sender cost center are lost, and are converted to one or more assessment cost
elements (secondary cost elements).
Assessment groups together the posted primary and secondary costs and allocates them to the
receiving cost centers in an assessment cost element.
For example, you could assess the cost from the reception cost center to the other cost centers
based on the headcount managed in those cost centers.

Prerequisites
One or more assessment cycles have to be configured.

SAP SE Page 6 of 8
SAP Best Practices Overhead Cost Accounting Actual (184): BPD

You have to start the defined cycles for assessment for the corresponding periods. The postings
are generated automatically. A log is generated. You can start a simulation before you perform
the actual assessment. The simulation displays the individual posting records without actually
posting them.
The following cycle has been defined for the actual assessment:
Cycle Segment Sender CC Tracing Factor Receiver
Y_A020 100 1750 For example, stat. Cost
key figure 1002 center
Ass. shared buildings & Buildings and
(plan)
facility (plan) maintenance cost maintenance group
DE Area in sq. footage 1000
Statistical key figures must be entered for some of the receiver cost centers. To do this, use
transaction KB31N. For the assessment described above, for more detailed instructions, refer to
the information in the Posting Statistical Key Figures step.

Procedure
1. Access the transaction choosing one of the following navigation options:
Option 1: SAP Graphical User Interface (SAP GUI)

Result
Assessment is started at the end of the period. Line items (posting records) are written for the
individual postings. These postings are generated automatically.
You can start a simulation before you perform the actual assessment. The simulation displays
the individual posting records without actually posting them. You can reverse the assessment if
necessary.

SAP SE Page 6 of 8
SAP Best Practices Overhead Cost Accounting Actual (184): BPD

4.2.2 Accrual Calculation

Use
In Cost Accounting, it is often necessary to impute costs (for planning reasons) that have a
different equivalent or none at all in Financial Accounting. Such costs are called accrued
costs. They are divided into valuation differences and additional costs. The SAP system uses
accrual calculation to model both cases automatically.
In accrual calculation, costs that are posted irregularly in the individual periods in Financial
Accounting are distributed among the individual periods according to cause (on an accrued
basis).
One example of such accrued costs is the holiday bonus. In Controlling, the holiday bonus is
distributed among the 12 months of the year, to charge all the months equally. If you did not
distribute the holiday bonus among all the periods, you would have an intolerable cost fluctuation
for the month of December, which would distort the operating profit for that period. To avoid such
fluctuations, the costs are posted on an accrual basis in Controlling, which distributes the costs
in a manner that is both according to cause and pertinent for the period.

Prerequisites
To determine the actual accruals, a costing sheet with valid overhead rates must be defined in
Customizing. The structure of the costing sheet is taken from the planned accrual. An order
serves as the accrual object.
This accrual order corresponds to the one used in the plan, which enables you to compare and
contrast the plan and actual costs.
You have to enter postings in Financial Accounting to create values in the system as a basis for
the accrual calculation. For demo purposes, you could enter a G/L account posting for salaries
for account 630000 and cost center 1101(offsetting entry to bank account 280000 in credit), for
example. For more detailed information about G/L account postings, refer to the information on
reposting line items in the Actual Postings document.

If you want processing to take place in the background, set Background Processing
in the Processing Options area. This is recommended for large data volumes.
You can simulate the accrual calculation for testing and forecast purposes. To do so,
set Test Run on the initial screen. This function enables you to check the results of
accruals calculation without changing the the database.
If you choose background processing, you have to enter the necessary data on the
Background Processing: Job Parameters screen:
Field name Description User actions and values Comment
Job name Name of background job Any
Planned start Date and time Start of background job
No start after Date and time Upper limit of time window
Immediate start X Job starts immediately

Result
Accrual calculation triggers the following postings:
The accrual order is credited
The cost center is debited
Check accrual postings in reporting. For information on how to call a cost center report, refer to
section Reporting of this business process documentation Actual Postings in Overhead Cost
Controlling.

4.2.3 Controlling Maintain Versions

Use
This activity is a year-end activity, which can be executed for several years at once. In this IMG
activity you edit the general version definition on the client level.

You make controlling area settings in the IMG for the Cost Center Accounting, Overhead
Orders, or Activity-Based Costing components.

You make profitability segment settings in the IMG for the Profitability Analysis
component.

For demo purposes, Best Practices already delivered fully maintained versions.
Therefore it is usually not required to adopt the versions in case of demo.
