The Internal Trading setup procedure defines service types, charge centers and associated services, account ranges, originators, and authorizers, and defines system options associated with internal trading.
Charge centers are business units that raise the internal charge. Account ranges must be unique to charge centers because the account flexfield ranges describe the charge center. Authorizers have the authority to accept or reject a cross charge.
This setup is required to perform the Internal Trading procedures, which let you raise charges between charge centers within the same organization.
Internal Trading setup procedures are used to perform these tasks:
Define whether automatic creation of encumbrance journals is required for the selected ledgers
Define the encumbrance type for internal trading encumbrance journals
Define whether Workflow approval is required for each ledgers
Define a time limit within which cross charges must be authorized before they are automatically authorized
Define charge center service types
Define charge centers for each ledger
Query and update information for charge centers associated with each ledger
Define account ranges for a charge center
Define an authorizer for each account range
Link originators to the appropriate charge center
Link service types to charge centers
Before setting up Internal Trading, you must:
Enable the Internal Trading feature for the required ledgers as specified in the GL: Data Access Set profile option.
