Set Up Business Units for Business Activity Statements

In Business Central, you can consolidate the financial statements of various companies into one financial statement.

You must set up a consolidation company to perform the consolidation. In this company, the total amounts for all accounts in the group, from both the parent company and subsidiaries are added together. You must also indicate the general ledger accounts in the consolidated company to which the total should be transferred.

You can use the BAS Business Units page to set up the following:

  • Parent company
  • Subsidiaries
  • Affiliates

You must set up information on the General Ledger Setup page before you can set up business units.
