Object documentation Time Deposits 


Feature of the account in Account Management (FS-AM) for administration of time deposit agreements.

All the other basic functions for an account are also available.


Accounts for which the time deposit (feature attribute 0015) feature is active are used for administration of time deposits. This is a term product with a fixed term.

An account can only contain one current time deposit agreement, which means that the terms of different time deposit agreements for the same account cannot overlap.

The following properties apply for all time deposit agreements of a time deposit account and are displayed on the Time Deposit tab page:

Standard declaration of intent

The standard declaration of intent defines how the system reacts when the end of term is reached for the time deposit agreement. This response is executed if you have not manually created any future time deposit agreements.

For more information, see the documentation for the field in the system.


The life cycle of a time deposit agreement (and the time deposit account) can be divided into three phases:

·  The preliminary phase starts at the start of the contract for the time deposit account and ends at the end of the first day of the fixing phase.

·  The fixing phase starts on the actual start of term and ends at the end of term. During this phase, the agreed contract amount and the conditions are fixed, which means that they are not changed.

For more information, see Fixing Time Deposits.

·  The maturity phase starts at the end of term for the time deposit agreement. During this phase, you can change the data of the time deposit agreement, such as the standard declaration of intent or the contract amount for a subsequent agreement.

For more information, see the Calling Time Deposits section of the SAP Library.

The current phase is displayed in the Phase group box on the Time Deposit tab page of an account 


Phases of a Time Deposit Account

This graphic is explained in the accompanying text

If the relevant settings are made in the standard declaration of intent and the actions at end of term, then the system executes automatic rollover of the time deposit agreement.

It is possible to define a grace period for the transition into a subsequent agreement (by rollover or manual scheduling).

For more information on the agreements made when you create a contract for a time deposit agreement, see Editing Time Deposit Agreements.


For time deposits we differentiate between master data and flow data.

·  Master Data

The master data of a time deposit is managed by contract element: time deposit (BCFD).

·  Transaction Data

The flow data of a time deposit is monitored and controlled by life cycle control: time deposit.

For more information, enter transaction fs_am_tech_doc (Technical Documentation FS-AM) and see the Fixed-Term Deposit section and subsections.

·  Contract element: Time deposit (BCFD)

In Account Management (FS-AM), you can use one of the following channels for processing objects:

·  Dialog

·  Business Application Programming Interface (BAPI)

·  Direct Input (DI)

The following overview shows which methods of a time deposit can be called up via which channel:

Business Application Programming Interface (BAPI)

A time deposit does not have its own BOR object, as does the product change (account) for example, because the master data of a time deposit is part of the master data of the account. You can edit the master data of a time deposit with the following BAPIs:

·  CMAccountAM.FixedTermDepositGetDetail

·  CMAccountAM.FixedTermDepositChange

There are no BAPIs available for the flow data of a time deposit (such as fix time deposit).

Direct Input

For time deposits, direct input is implemented for the data of contract element: time deposit (BCFD).
