Labor Cross Charging is the transfer of labor costs and related revenues between different organizations in your business. Use cross-work charges when an employee in one organization is working on a project in another organization. Cross-billing (transfer) allows any organization to match costs to sales and assess profitability fairly. The cross-center charling process redistributes labor costs and associated revenues when an employee of one organization (the lender) is working on a project for another organization (the borrower). The transfer of costs and revenues between organizations allows any organization to match costs with revenues and assess profitability fairly. Hi Scott, It would also be helpful if you could provide a simplified entity structure (as John mentions, is everything in the US or are some entities outside the US?). Are all entities on the same accounting system or are there different ones for each of them? If all on the same system, much easier and you simply make the log entry by identifying the appropriate entity in the account code. If you have different systems (or even different instances of the same system,. B for example separate sets of QuickBooks), you need to coordinate the entries to make sure that you can always consolidate cleanly. Typically, in the latter case, you take over the books of one subsidiary, settle the same books in an intercompany clearing account, and then reflect this entry in the books of the other subsidiary (or parent company). If you can give a little more detail on what you`re trying to do, I`m sure John and I can help you here.
Best,-Andy The collection of insurance costs incurred by the registered office on behalf of its affiliates is subject to transfer pricing tax regulations and is reasonable. Since those insurance costs would be considered to be `passed on` from the parent company to the related undertakings for which the expenses would actually have to be incurred, no surcharge should be levied in relation to other types of administrative costs, which should have a profit premium. Typically, insurance costs are allocated according to an appropriate allocation key or index. For example, property insurance could be allocated on an asset basis, while product liability insurance could arguably be allocated on a sales basis. Finally, with regard to the regional holding structure, it is probably more efficient to weigh directly on the operating subsidiaries rather than first burdening the holding company, which would then charge its operating subsidiaries. I think the other commentators have touched on some of the accounting issues that arise when accounting for intercompany expenses and how to eliminate them in consolidation. I hope this helps. Jake Intercompany Billing – This feature works in the same way as the cross-project billing feature, with one exception, there can only be one receiving project per organization. In this case, the vendor`s organizational units will only charge the intercompany billing project of the receiving organizational unit.
In addition, the Cross Charge Process method must be set to Intercompany Billing of Provider/Receiver Controls. The project in the recipient organizational unit responsible for billing the customer does NOT have the costs of the various other projects that supported it, as these costs are charged to the receiving project at the organizational unit level. In addition, you must configure the AutoAccounting Intercompany Revenue and Intercompany Invoicing features. The vendor invoice account generator must also be modified to properly account for internal AP invoices. This option supports cross-load between registries. According to Oracle`s documentation, there are three TYPES of cross-billing transactions (see below) that use either borrowed and loaned, intercompany billing, or no-fee cross-over processes as cross-billing METHODS. The intercompany method allows you to cross the lot between legal entities (inter-company) or between operational units (inter-operator units). This method is usually chosen when companies need to create internal invoices due to legal and/or regulatory requirements. When it comes to cross-charging, Costpoint offers three options to make sure your books are compliant.

A cross-load is a sharing of work resources between different organizations in your organization. For example, a counterload occurs when an employee in your Northeast office is working on a project for your Southwest office.
The “No Cross-Fees” method is used when it is not necessary to process cross-fee transactions, but it is still necessary to reflect fees or revenues from one project to another. The Labor Cross Charge app uses special general ledger accounts, special projects, and configuration data to automate accounting entries involved in transferring workload and revenue between organizations. Accounting entries are created when you run the payroll accounting process. Having recently served as Global CFO of a company in 40 countries, we have implemented a monthly Interco reporting and reconciliation process. Yes, literally ask subcontractors to fill out a form that is sent to Corp each month to “confirm” the Interco fees and balances they have recorded so far. This has proven to be extremely useful in maintaining the balance of Interco accounts. and healthy. When it comes to Intl, you should definitely consider which countries require actual external invoices that really need to be paid/paid in cash so that they can be recorded in their books..
