HI,

Flexfield qualifiers is the qualifying the segments. with out qualifying the segments we can't user the flexfields.

banlancing segments and natural account segments are mandatory flexfileds.

cost centre and intercompany are non-mandatory segments.
we can use the intercompany accounts in GL module you must enable the intercompany segments.

if you have more than one departments in ur company, you can use the cost centre accounts.

Thx..

Flexfield Qualifiers are used to "Qualify" what a particular segment is used for.

In General Ledger, you must specify one segment of your Accounting Flexfield as the Balancing Segment. This is normally used for a company or a legal entity. All journal entries must balance within a Balancing segment, so you cannot Debit company 1 and Credit company 2; you must have entries in the intercompany accounts. Talk to the accountants to find out why they want to do this.

In General Ledger, you must specify one segment of your Accounting Flexfield as the Natural Account segment. This is used to identify the nature of the transaction; whether it relates to Sales (or other income) or Costs (materials, goods, services), or Debts that we owe other people, or Debts that other people owe us, or Assets that the business owns, or Capital that the owners have invested in the business. Talk to the accountants to find out why they want to do this.

In General Ledger, you may specify one segment of your Accounting Flexfield as the Department segment. This is optional, unless you have Fixed Assets, which needs the Department segement for posting Depreciation to the Departments that are using the Assets. Talk to the accountants to find out why they want to do this.

In General Ledger, you may specify one segment of your Accounting Flexfield as the Intercompany segment. This is optional, but if you buy and/or sell goods and/or services to/from other companies in the same group, you may want to keep a record of which company you bought from / sold to. You can do this in the Intercompany segment. At the group level, when you consolidate the results of all the companies, you can then check that the sales that company 1 says that it made to company 2 agrees with the purchases that company 2 says that it made from company 1. You can then eliminate these inter-company sales from the group consolidation, where the idea is to report what we (as a group) bought from / sold to 3rd parties. Talk to the accountants to find out why they want to do this.

For more details on how these are specified with the applications, refer to the User Guide for your application and to the Oracle Applications Flexfields Guide

Cool HTH

There is an explanation and example of why and how you would use the Intercompany Segment in my Oracle Financials Blog

It also has an important example of what not to do
