Intercompany Setup and postings

Hello everyone,

I am using NAV 2013.

I wanted to get some information on how Intercompany posting works in NAV. IT would be really nice if I could get some info on how to set up intercompany postings.

Questions i have specifically in mind are :-

  1. Can I maintain a common Account book for two companies in NAV. There is something called as MApping for G/L accounts for intercompany, how does that work?

  2. If I do a intercompany post , what companies accounts are effected and which G.L accounts would be effected , the posting company or the posted one and therefore are both companies g/l accounts effected by one entry? or do i need to pass the entry in both companies journals?

Excuse me for my limited knowledge or stupid questions, but just trying to understand the concept better.

Thanks.
