 Special G/L Transactions: Overview

Special G/L transactions are special transactions in accounts receivable and accounts payable that are displayed separately in the general ledger and the subledger. This may be necessary for reporting or for internal reasons. For example, down payments must not be balanced with receivables and payables for goods and services. Consequently, they are treated as special G/L transactions in the General Ledger (FI-GL) Accounts Payable (FI-AP) and Accounts Receivable (FI-AR) application components.

Special G/L transactions are already available in the standard system. However, you can change the specifications or define your own special G/L transactions.

This section describes:

  • How the system manages special G/L transactions and the advantages of this procedure

  • What you need to know for the special G/L transactions "down payment" and "guarantee" and how you adapt these transactions to your company-specific requirements

  • How you create your own special G/L transactions
