Contém umaDear SAP Officers,

We are a Financial Holding Group (BISA Group) that is currently implementing a SAP S / 4 HANA On-Premise 1511 project across the group´s 9 conforming companies. First, we will provide an executive summary about the project. With its understanding, we will present our current issue and inquiries.

  • BISA Group holds 8 financial companies and a 9th which will serve as the Group´s Controller
  • Material Management (MM) will be implemented across the companies and the required configuration needed in Finance (FI) to work along MM.
  • oHowever, each company will keep their current accounting systems operating (which are not SAP related) to consolidate their own financial statements and control their respective accounting, core business and operation.
  • The Group´s Controller will work fully under SAP, utilizing this system as its main operational accounting software
  • oEach of the 8 companies must send their accounting entries (book entries) to the Controller´s SAP System so that SAP can integrate and create the Financial Holding Financial Statements (all of them unified and consolidated by SAP´s EC-CS module)
  • oSAP will also have to send accounting entries to each company´s accounting systems (most specifically, for all the MM transactions that each company operated on SAP by themselves and which created accounting entries of their own in SAP).
  • oThrough the last two previous processes, we guarantee integrity within our information, operational, business and accounting systems.

One of the main challenges of this project is to build and develop multiple interfaces to make the transfers of accounting entries (Company à SAP and SAP à Company).

During the analysis of different scenarios and singularities, on one of our companies, a Bank more specifically, we found that its accounting system allows the registry of more than one transaction in a single booking entry which could apply more than one currency exchanges. This singularity antagonizes with SAP´s native operating system which, although works under a more than one transaction in a single booking entry, does not apply differentiated and multiple-currency exchanges in a single book entry with various transactions (which could have already-configured-specific-and-different currency exchanges)

Under this premise, we share the following inquiries:

  • 1.Is there currently any module, functionality, component, etc., which could enable SAP to work under the afore-mentioned scenario of multiple-currency exchanges within a single book entry?
  • 2.If so, how does it work? And how could it be implemented?
  • 3.Is it to your knowledge of any case-study like ours which could (or couldn´t) be resolved?
  • a.We would like to grasp any lesson learned which could be utilized in our project.

We thank you in advance for your valuable support, looking forwarding to hear from you promptly.

Best regards.
