Different Business area in accounting entries

Dear All,

Require your expertise at your earliest convenience!

Generally when we post the accounting entries for any billing document the Business Area is same in all the accounting line items. Since the business area of the sales office and plant are same. But going forward business will allow creation of sales document even if the the business area of sales office and plant are different(provided they belong to same state).


  • Is it possible to create accounting entries with different business area in accounting line items?
  • Please let me know the area/enhancement spot/BADI etc if at all feasible?

Current Scenario accounting entries:

Co Code Item PK Account Description Amt Currency Tax Code Bus Area Pr Center Segment Assignment 9000 1 1 1000000251 Customer 64,059.00 INR A0 B004 9200 24409 9000 2 50 42318000 CST Payable Account 2,463.81- INR A0 9000 3 50 35309000 Sales 61,595.29- INR A0 B004 5000 9200 9000 4 40 73299002 ROUNDING OFF ADJT. A 0.1 INR A0 B004 5000 9200

    You should be knowing Business area can be set either by Sales Area or Plant and Division combination.  If you want to deviate this standard functionality, you can go for an enhancement.  Ideally, before posting this query, you should have tested, shared how the accounting entries are with the existing configuration and then, you have to indicate how you want the accounting entries to be posted.  By the way, have you discussed with your Finance team ?

    • Hi Anirban,

      With note 1490708, the business area is no longer passed from SD to FI. This This is because the settings in OKC9 can change the business area later on, SD cannot decide if a business area is unique or not and therefore SD should not set the business area in the customer line.

      As suggested by G. Lakshmipathi, you can try to implement userexit EXIT_SAPLV60B_002 (member of enhancement SDVFX002) to fill the field GSBER according to your business requirements. Please refer to SAP Note #381348 before deciding to implement such modification.

      You can also create a substitution (transaction OKC9) or derivation to determine the business area.

      Best Regards,
