Each org. unit in a multi-org. environment transacts as an individual business unit. Therefore, users must create individual accounting periods for each organizational unit. When a new org. unit is created within the org hierarchy, an open-ended accounting period is automatically created for each new org unit. Users can later create an accounting period for the org unit based on their access permission.
The accounting periods of all the child Org Units should be closed before closing the accounting period for the parent Org Unit.
