  4. Select the Edit Project Scope button
  5. In the scoping step Country and Type of Business, not able to see the option Non-Localized Countries

Non-localized countries will not be available in the business configuration, which is an expected system behavior.


If it is necessary for you to implement a particular Country as a separate country in your solution, it is possible to engage with a certified SAP Partner for them to implement an additional Country and the associated objects like a dedicated Set of Books,etc., by employing the Localization Tool Kit. Since some limitations do exist for this, you are strongly advised to discuss your specific requirements in detail with your SAP Partner.
