Month End Closing

Dear All,

I am the SAP liason to the business side.

The core SAP development team resides in a remote location and the communication between business side and SAP developers is only through email.

In that case, what would you suggest as check points to follow as a liason for supporting month end activities, if any difficulties arises. I'm hoping that some of you have gone through month end activities and have faced such kind of issues.

Best Regards

    Hello Prabin,

    I don't know your country legal requirements but I try to write standart month-end closing operatios.

    - Foreign Currency Valuation

    - Reclassify your account ( Regrouping debit and credit balance for customers and vendors / GR/IR account regrouping )

    - In CO side, distribution costs.

    - Take Purchase (Input tax) and Sales (Output tax) Tax returns report

    - In AA side, run periodic deprication.

    Those are the basic operations for month-end closing operations.
