Bank Facilities and Partner issue

Hi experts;

     I started search on the forums but because I am not SAP TM consultants perhaps I could not find out what I need exactly so kindly I need your help for that;

     I am FI/CO consultant at my company we need to manage our Bank Facilities (I mean when the bank grants us a facility and latter on we start to open Letter of Credit LCs and Letter of Guaranties LGs for our vendors and service providers at these banks)

     And there is no scenario for that on the SAP FI/CO modules which is totally logic and correct.

So I kindly need to know the following to start working on the issue:

1. Is that scenario existing on the SAP? If yes;

2. How can I manage my bank facilities which are granted to me from my different banks? I mean name of module(s) and T-codes.

3. For such facilities and latter on LCs and LGs opened under such Facilities, how can we report to track the:

     3.1  Facilities.

     3.2  LCs & LGs.

     3.3  Projects (where such LCs and LGs are opened for) what has been consumed.

     3.4  Remaining amounts.

     3.5  Interests computed on them.

4. How to create the Business Partner (the bank in our case) on Partner field on the TM_61.

perhaps there some more issues related but yet at least I need if you kindly help to start such new issue for me in simple clear steps.

Thanks in advance;

Kind regards;

Ahmad Mahmud;

    In TRM, there is no full letter of credit/letter of guarantee functionality available, however, there is a product type "facilities" that could be used to manage the bank credit line both bilateral and syndicated type of Bank facilities (560) and for its credit utilization, you can use Interest rate instrument (550) so that you could manage the remaining credit balance and the generation of interest for this

    Please see below thread as well.

    Hi Ahmad,

    I believe SAP Global Trade Services should fulfil your requirement.

      hi Rohit;

           yes, indeed the scenario is covered at the GTS, but unfortunately we are not implementing it that is why I am trying to find what is the best component that may fulfill our basic demands even if through a work around.

      Thank you very much for help;

      Kind regards;
