Hi Expert,

I got to know that there is a new functionality called " PSM, Cash-Basis Accounting and Cash Flow Reporting  " in EHP 4 whereby one can maintain books of account on Cash Basis by creating a separate Parallel Ledger for Cash accounting.

We have a requirement to track actual payment for Project System, so we are considering PS Cash Management but I would like to evaluate this option also but could not get much information.

I hereby request that if any one has used this function than he can share some details like what does it actually do and how does it work. I have checked SAP help already but interested in a kind of test scenario.

Thanks a lot in anticipation ....

    Hi Pankaj

    In cash flow reporting, cash inflows and outflows (postings to the Cash GL Account) are split by the Revenue/Expenditure Account on the preceding document (usually AR or AP invoice). This provides a more detailed view of the cash receipts and payments. In order to use Cash Flow Reporting you must use the New GL preferably with the table PSGLFLEXT. You must also set up the Cash GL Account in Item Categories for splitting and also configure constants as required.

    Please note that Projects are not a splitting characteristic so cash flow by project is not provided in Cash Flow Reporting. To get cash transactions by project I suggest you look at Project System configuration and explore reporting options.

    I have no direct experience with Cash Basis Accounting but my understanding is that in CBA revenues and expenditures are not recognized until the related cash transaction is posted.
