Background documentation Automatic Postings  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure

When you post special G/L transactions, the system generates automatic postings. For example, the system can post tax on down payments or bill of exchange tax on bills of exchange receivable.

To make automatic postings, the system requires specifications on the accounts to post to and the posting keys to use.

This information is also already defined in the standard system. You need only make changes if you do not use the standard chart of accounts or if you want to use other account numbers, posting keys or account determination rules. You must also decide which automatic postings you want to have carried out.

The automatic postings are explained below for the each special G/L transaction.
