 Functions for Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable


As of SAP Accounting powered by SAP HANA (SAP_FIN 700), the following features and changes are available in Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable:

Index and Totals Tables

From a technical perspective, the following tables have been replaced by views:

  • BSID

  • BSAD

  • BSIK

  • BSAK

  • KNC1

  • KNC3

  • LFC1

  • LFC3

The advantage of this change is that you no longer have to store redundant data, thus saving space on your database. You can still use reports that read the database, including your own reports. A further advantage is that inconsistencies can no longer arise between the single documents and the totals.

Replaced Transactions

For information about the transactions that are replaced by newer ones, see SAP Note 1946054Information published on SAP site.


The following new roles are available as a copy template:

  • Role SAP_SFIN_AR for accounts receivable

  • Role SAP_SFIN_AP for accounts payable

Portfolio Adaptation for Credit Management

While FI-internal Credit Management (FI-AR-CR) is still available for existing customers with SAP Accounting powered by SAP HANA, as a legacy and to help in migration efforts, please use the SAP Credit Management (FIN-FSCM-CR) component that offers an integrated, cross-system form of credit management. FI-internal Credit Management (FI-AR-CR) is not a functionality provided with SAP Accounting powered by SAP HANA and will be removed in a further version thereof.

Vendor Information System

The Vendor Information System application in SAP NetWeaver Business Client (NWBC) allows you to make the following three types of analyses for vendor invoices:

  • Due date analysis

  • Overdue items analysis

  • Currency analysis

Effects on Data Transfer

If you are already using SAP ERP and want to use the functions in the add-on, you have to migrate data. For additional information, see release note Migration to SAP Accounting powered by SAP HANA.

Effects on System Administration

You can use the Data Aging function for financial accounting documents to increase memory capacity. Data archiving for financial accounting documents is no longer possible. For additional information, see release note Data Aging of Financial Accounting Documents.
