The JVA equity change management program applies changes in ownership of ventures to expenses posted to ventures and cost objects during the current period before final period-end processing (i.e., Cutback) assigns these expenses to partners.


For example, at the beginning of the period, JV1 is owned by equity group EG1. During the period, an expense of $1,000 is booked to cost object JV1_CC1 with a document date of 1/15/97.

Expenses booked to JVA-related cost objects are assigned to the venture identified on the cost object (in the case of JV1_CC1, JV1) and to the equity group that owns the venture as of the document date. The equity group is identified by the combination of the JV and the equity type, which is also assigned to the cost object.

In this example, equity type ET1 is specified on cost object JV1_CC1. The combination of joint venture JV1 and equity type ET1 associate the expense with equity group EG1.

In this example, however, EG2 (also associated with equity type ET1) takes over ownership of JV1 on 1/20/97. If equity change management is not run before Cutback, the original JVA record associating the expense with EG1 will remain intact, and Cutback will assign the expense booked to JV1_CC1 to the partners in equity group EG1. But If equity change management is run before Cutback, the original record will be reversed, the expense will be rebooked with the new venture and equity group assignment, and Cutback will assign the expense booked to JV1_CC1 to the partners of equity group EG2.


Equity change management can be run for individual ventures or for all ventures within the company for the period. If the venture and equity group associated with the expense record in JVA is the same as the venture and equity group identified via the cost object at period end, no equity change is executed.

When an equity group is derived via the cost object that is different than the equity group associated with the expense in the JVA record, the original expense record is reversed and a new record is posted with the new equity group as owner.

If a venture is inactive or if no valid equity group is found for a venture, the next JV record is processed. Equity groups for which CI/NPI processing is involved are excluded from processing.

Selection Criteria

The following additional selection criteria are provided:

Selection of the With recs processed by cutback will include records created by intermediate runs of Cutback in the processing.

On default, all expenses posted to the selected venture with billable recovery indicators are included in processing.

Expenses with non-billable recovery indicators (such as suspense records) may also be included via the All non-billable indicator.

Alternatively, a range of recovery indicators may be selected, and expenses booked to the selected venture during the current period with recovery indicators within the range will be included in processing.



When run in update, equity change management directly updates the JVA summary ledger (4A), but Cutback must be run after equity change management to update FI.
