What Special Purpose Ledger in SAP FI

In the application component Special Purpose Ledger, you can define ledgers for reporting purposes. You can keep these user-defined ledgers as general ledgers or subsidiary ledgers with various account assignment objects. Account assignment objects can either be SAP dimensions from various applications (such as account, cost center, business area, profit center) or customer-defined dimensions (such as region). The Special Purpose Ledger allows you to report at various levels using the values from the various application components. The modules in the Special Purpose Ledger allow you to collect information, combine information, and create totals. You can also modify, assess, and distribute actual and plan values that are transferred from other SAP applications or external systems to the Special Purpose Ledger.The use of the Special Purpose Ledger has no effect on the actual functions of other SAP applications.

Credit Management Risk Management in SAP FI/SD

A large number of outstanding receivables or bad debts can have a not inconsiderable impact on company performance. Using Credit Management, you can minimize your credit risk by defining a credit limit for your customers. This is especially important if you do business with customers in financially unstable sectors or countries, or trade with countries that are politically unstable or that adopt a restrictive exchange rate policy.If you implement the Accounts Receivable (FI-AR) application component to manage your receivables, but a non-SAP system for sales and distribution processing, Credit Management enables you to assign a credit limit to each customer. When you post an invoice (in FI-AR) the system then checks whether the amount exceeds the credit limit. Facilities like the credit master
sheet or early warning list help you monitor the customer’s credit situation.
If you implement both the Accounts Receivable (FI-AR) and Sales and Distribution (SD) application components, you can specify in Customizing when (at the point of order, delivery, goods issue and so on) and to what extent a check on the customer’s credit limit is to take place.
