You can use the form to process elimination transactions for consolidation companies, if you prefer to complete the consolidations at one time and validate the information before processing eliminations.

If there are previous consolidation transactions for the company, date range, and account range, the transactions will be removed and consolidated again.

You must create an elimination rule before you create elimination transactions. For more information, see Set up elimination rules for transactions.

  1. In the consolidation company, create a new journal name with an journal type in the form ( > > > ).

  2. In the consolidation company, create an elimination rule with the consolidation company as the destination company. Define lines for the accounts for which transactions must be eliminated.

  3. Consolidate transactions from the subsidiary company into the consolidation company using the form ( > > > ).

    Your selections in this form determine how the eliminations journal is posted:

    • If you select , the eliminations journal will be posted when you click OKin the form.

    • If you select , you must post the eliminations journals in the form ( > > ).
