Shifting Principal Office

We have several branches and a principal office.

I maintain separate business in software for each office and i follow branch accounting journal entries for inter-branch transactions.

We are shifting our principal office next month. For easy guess...

May 2017

Location A > Principal Office
Location B > We are decorating this place

June 2017

Location A > Branch Office
Location B > Principal Office

Regional customers will remain under branch office.
But all suppliers will remain under principal office. There are some questions?

1. I am planning to create a new business for new principal office (location B) and another new business for branch (old principal office, location A).
Am I correct?

2. Now I am spending for the new principal office decoration & fixed assets. How should I record these transactions in both business?

3. There are many fixed assets and inventories we have in our current principal office. Most of these items will be remain in current location (it will be branch next month). How can I handle these???

There are many things like these that I have to play. And I don't find any guidelines.
Please help me. I need some ideas, concepts or anything..........
