Overview of New General Ledger

The general ledger in SAP R/3 is highly assorted. R/3 customers have to implement several SAP components in order to fulfill accounting requirements. To ease this problem, SAP has created a new, flexible general ledger solution in SAP ERP. New G/L merges the classic general ledger with profit center accounting, special ledger.

New general ledger accounting in mySAP ERP has the following features:

  • New G/L accounting has an extended data structure in the standard delivery.
  • With (real-time) document splitting, balance sheets can be created for entities such as "Segment".
  • You can run a real time reconciliation tasks obsolete.
  • New G/L accounting makes it possible to manage multiple ledgers within G/L accounting. This is one of the possible ways of portraying parallel accounting in the SAP system.
Configuration of New General Ledger
  • Define Ledgers for General Ledger Accounting.
  • Define Currencies of Leading Ledger.
  • Define and Activate Non-Leading Ledger.
  • Assign Scenarios and Customer Fields to Ledgers.
  • Define Ledger Group.
Overview of Parallel Accounting

You can portray parallel accounting in your SAP System. This enables you to perform valuations and closing preparations for a company code according to the accounting principles of the group as well as other accounting principles, such as local accounting principles.

  • Define Accounting Principles.
  • Assign Accounting Principle to Ledger groups.
Overview of Tax on Sales / Purchases

Input and output tax is calculated on revenue or expense items (base amount). The tax amounts are posted to separate tax accounts and refunded by the tax office (input tax) or paid to the tax office (output tax). The tax percentage rates vary from country to country and are determined when you define the tax codes.

  • Basic Settings
  • Calculation
  • Posting
Overview of Document Splitting

Document splitting allows you to display documents using a differentiated representation. In the representation, line items are split according to selected dimensions. So you can draw up financial statements for the selected dimensions at any time.

  • Classify Document Types for Document Splitting.
  • Define Zero-Balance Clearing Account.

Overview of Cross - Company Code Transactions

Several company codes are involved in a cross-company code transaction. In a cross-company code transaction, the system posts a separate document with its own document number in each of the company codes. Individual documents are linked by a common cross-company code number. The system generates line items automatically (receivable and payable arising between company codes) in order to balance the debits and credits in each document. You may use only one company code for offsetting entries.

  • Foreign Exchange Currency Valuation
    • Define Valuation Methods

Asset Accounting: The SAP Asset Accounting (FI-AA) component is used for managing and supervising fixed assets with the SAP R/3 System. In SAP R/3 Financial Accounting, it serves as a subsidiary ledger to the FI General Ledger, providing detailed information on transactions involving fixed assets.

Traditional asset accounting encompasses the entire lifetime of the asset from purchase order or the initial acquisition (possibly managed as an asset under construction) through its retirement. The system calculates, to a large extent automatically, the values for depreciation, interest, insurance and other purposes between these two points in time, and places this information at your disposal in varied form using the Information System.

Concepts of Lockbox:Customer payments are posted into the system to represent the collection of money and the application of this money against Customer liabilities to the company. This can be performed two ways within the system, either on an individual payment-by-payment basis, or collectively, in what is commonly called lockbox processing.

Credit Management: Large number of outstanding receivables or bad debts can have a not inconsiderable impact on company performance. Using Credit Management, you can minimize your credit risk by defining a credit limit for your customer.

Interest Calculation on G/L and A/R: We calculate interest on overdue customer accounts and general ledger accounts. Interest can be calculated by using the line items interest or overall account balances.

Integration FI-MM-SD: SAP FICO is a core module in SAP and tightly integrated with MM and SD.


Cost Center Accounting: You use Cost Center Accounting for controlling purposes within your organization. The costs incurred by your organization should be transparent. This enables you to check the profitability of individual functional areas and provide decision-making data for management. This requires that all costs be assigned according to their source. However, source-related assignment is especially difficult for overhead costs. Cost Center Accounting lets you analyze the overhead costs according to where they were incurred within the organization.

  • Define Controlling Area.
  • Maintain Versions.
  • Automatic creation of Primary and Secondary cost Elements.
  • Standard Hierarchy of cost center.
  • Cost Center Categories.

Activity Type: A Activity type defines activity provided by a cost center.

  • Define Activity Type
    • Activity Type Categories
    • Maintain Relationship between cost center and activity type
    • Direct Activity Allocation
    • Indirect Activity Allocation

Accrual Calculation:We use Accrual calculation to prevent periodic cost fluctuation in cost accounting. You distribute irregular cost to the relevant periods in controlling.

  • Accrual Calculation
    • Percentage Method
    • Plan=actual procedure
  • Plan and Actual assessment
  • Plan and Actual distribution
  • Direct Activity Allocation
  • Indirect Activity Allocation

  • Define Variants to Real-Time Integration
  • Assign Variants for Real-Time Integration to Company Codes
  • Define Rules for Selecting CO Line Items
  • Define Account Determination for Real-Time Integration


Internal Order:An instrument used to monitor costs and, in some instances, the revenues of an organization.

Internal orders can be used for the following purposes:

  • Monitoring the costs of short-term jobs
  • Monitoring the costs and revenues of a specific service
  • Ongoing cost control

Internal orders are divided into the following categories:

Overhead orders: For short-term monitoring of the indirect costs arising from jobs. They can also be used for continuous monitoring of sub-areas of indirect costs. Overhead orders can collect plan and actual costs independently of organizational cost center structures and business processes, enabling continues cost control in the enterprise.

Investment orders: Monitor investment costs that can be capitalized and settled to fixed assets.

Accrual orders: Monitor period-based accrual between expenses posted in Financial Accounting and accrual costs in Controlling.

Orders with revenues: Monitor the costs and revenues arising from activities for partners outside the organization, or from activities not belonging to the core business of the organization.

COPA -> Profitability Analysis

Profitability Analysis (CO-PA) enables you to evaluate market segments, which can be classified according to products, customers, orders or any combination of these, or strategic business units, such as sales organizations or business areas, with respect to your company's profit or contribution margin.

The aim of the system is to provide your sales, marketing, product management and corporate planning departments with information to support internal accounting and decision-making.

Two forms of Profitability Analysis are supported: costing-based and account-based.

  • Costing-based Profitability Analysis is the form of profitability analysis that groups costs and revenues according to value fields and costing-based valuation approaches, both of which you can define yourself. It guarantees you access at all times to a complete, short-term profitability report.
  • Account-based Profitability Analysis is a form of profitability analysis organized in accounts and using an account-based valuation approach. The distinguishing characteristic of this form is its use of cost and revenue elements. It provides you with a profitability report that is permanently reconciled with financial accounting.
