No separate installation for Russia one or more client system hosted by the headquarter own company code for Russia Licenses are purchased centrally (mostly in accordance with SAP Enterprise Agreement) Business processes mainly in logistics are usually identical or very similar Difference between sales and production operations in Russia (see next slide) “Copy – paste” approach is not sufficient enough. Accounting should be fully adapted Statutory Accounting (VAT, creditors, debtors, bank, cash,..) Corporate chart of accounts as the main chart of accounts (Russian chart of accounts as an alternative chart of accounts) Asset Accounting Tax accounting Controlling Relatively low effort for controlling in the case of one controlling area (except for production companies – determination of production costs according to RAS) HR is usually covered from external systems. High complexity in Russia
