Business Area Balance sheet

Hello SAP Gurus,

We have enabled business area balance sheet in Company code global parameters. At the end of everymonth our accountants having the following problem.

For Reconciliation accounts(vendor, customer etc.) and automatic posting accounts (tax, cash discount a/cs etc...) they have to give business area manually. For manual posting a/cs we are doing either FSG or FI Validation for business area. Is there anyway we can get rid of giving business area manually at the month-end for reconciliation and automatic posting accounts.

Thanks

Kishore

    Hi,

    For Blank Business Area in the Balance Sheet item, please execute Transaction F.5D and F.5E for the Balance Sheet Items. These transaction will post Inter Business Area Postings to balance the Business Area Balance Sheet. For the Profit and Loss Account like the discount Account, you need to execute the transaction F.5F (Profit and Loss Adjustment). However, be careful, this transaction should be executed last as part of your month end closing after all accounting documents have been posted because this transaction will post entries as many times as the transaction is executed.

    Hope this helps

    Regards

    Mahendra

    Just information, business area is not a perfect function in SAP. Starting from ECC5 onward, you can use segment as the replavement of business area. This function come together with document splitting function which can help you to overcome the problem.
