The valuation level is an important configuration step because it specifies the level at which material stocks are valuated for the whole client.
• Depending on the valuation level chosen, accounting data (in particular the valuation price) is maintained for each plant or for each company code in the material master record.
• If material stocks are valuated at company code level, all plant stocks of a material are managed in a joint stock account for each company code.
• If material stocks are valuated at plant level, the material stocks for each plant can be managed in different accounts. We can define a separate account determination for each plant
