    Hi Fabienne,

    i happened to read your starter kit alongside the original SAP EC-CS documentation from 2001 and here are my impressions:

    A. what i liked about it:
    1. professional presentation which is very pleasing to the eye
    2. flows read and cross-foot nicely from left to right
    3. inclusion of cash flows in addition to the balance sheet

    B. what i found lacking:
    1. i couldn’t find any references to debits and credits in the text of your document even though there was a discussion of journal entries and some pictures have DR’s & CR’s.
    2. i’m also not sure what is meant by ‘financial interest rate’, i think this refers to ‘ownership percentage’, but i could be wrong.
    3. it’s not clear if the schedules are in Excel or some other (web?) client and what is the flow from manual (or upload) entry via calculation to the final financial disclosure.
    4. what were the full statements of entities involved in the consolidation? i couldn’t find income statements. simple is good, but page 2 is an oversimplification.
    5. aren’t the columns supposed to foot as well? on some pages they don’t and i’m not sure why.

    i’m assuming this is work in progress and is offered as such at this point, but without having equal access to ECC and SBO my analysis is necessarily superficial.

    rgds,

      Hi Greg,

      Financial interest rate: percentage of capital that a parent company holds directly or indirectly in the held company. Basis of the Non Controlling Interest calculation
      All schedules are screenshots from the BPC starter kit whose schedules are retrieved via the EPM Add In for BPC.
      Regards,
      Fabienne
