 FIN-FSCM-CLM: Business Function SAP Cash Management powered by SAP HANA


As of the SAP Simple Finance add-on 1.0 for SAP Business Suite powered by HANA, the business function SAP Cash Management powered by SAP HANA is available. With this business function, SAP Cash Management powered by SAP HANA replaces the old Cash and Liquidity Management with the following new features:

  • Bank Account Management

  • Cash Position and Short-Term Cash Forecast

  • Embedded Liquidity Planning

  • Cash flow and liquidity forecast calculation powered by SAP HANA

  • New user experiences with the NetWeaver Business Client (NWBC)

  • A pre-defined PFCG role for cash managers (SAP_SFIN_CASH_MANAGER)

Bank Account Management

With Bank Account Management, customers in Cash or Treasury departments are able to centralize the management of bank accounts by using the following features.

  • Hierarchy view and table view of bank and bank accounts

  • A new bank account master data that supports

    • Common properties of bank accounts

    • Signatories for payments approvals

    • Overdraft limits

  • Workflow process for opening, closing, or changing bank account master records

  • Status monitor for bank statement imports (only available with the Bank Communication Management component enabled)

Cash Position and Short-Term Cash Forecast

With the new Cash Position and Short-Term Cash Forecast report, you are able to:

  • View cash position and short-term cash forecast based on bank statements, payment documents, memo records, and TRM deals (money market and FX).

  • Customize the report by using the WebDynpro FPM and the embedded BEx queries.

Embedded Liquidity Planning

With the embedded liquidity planning, you are able to conduct daily or monthly liquidity planning by liquidity item, bank account, planning level, or other dimensions.

The following data can be embedded into your liquidity planning as reference data to help you create liquidity plans and make variance analysis:

  • Cash position

  • Actual cash flow

  • Forecasted cash flow

Effects on Existing Data

Database tables of the old Cash and Liquidity Management are no longer used. Therefore, there is no need to migrate existing Cash and Liquidity Management data. However, you may need to perform the following actions in order to prepare the existing data for the new calculation logic:

Cash Position and Short Term Cash Forecast
  • Cash position gets the data from accounting document line item table directly. The accounting document line item table is enhanced with an additional field Flow Type.

  • To use the report, you must complete the necessary configuration and execute the rebuild tool (transaction FQM_UPD_FLOW_TYPE) to fill the flow type for accounting document line items.

  • To include TRM deals in Exposure Hub into calculation, you must build the existing TRM deal information into Exposure Hub. To do this, execute the initial load tool (transaction FQM_INITIALIZE).

Bank Account Management

Bank account master data works together with the house bank account data in the Bank Master Data (FI-BL-MD) component. You can generate bank account master data and assign house bank accounts by using the following transactions:

  • Migrate house bank accounts (transaction FCLM_BAM_MIGRATION)

  • Manually assign house bank accounts (transaction FCLM_BAM_ACCLINK)
