SAP General Ledger: Key functionality and a sneak peek at our upcoming webinar

Authored by Leo Schultz, SVP of Consultant Services, TruQua

The digital CFO needs a dynamic, flexible chart of accounts that provides enough detail to see the true measures of business activity like profitability by division by customer by product by sales order – in real-time. Simply stated the SAP General Ledger (Universal Journal) delivers that kind of dynamic flexibility.

TruQua is pleased to announce our latest webinar  “What’s new in SAP S/4HANA for Finance”, scheduled for Thursday, April 9th to showcase the enhancements to the SAP General Ledger and Universal Journal, including multi-ledger, document splitting, and SAP Central Finance. This blog features a sneak peek at a few of the enhancements our upcoming webinar on the SAP General Ledger will cover.


Key functionality delivered with the SAP General Ledger

  • Dynamic Chart of Accounts with over 300 dimensions to be used to report business activity
  • Document Splitting – providing the ability to manage the balance sheet by business segment(s) without additional allocations.
  • Multi-Ledgers – providing the ability to record multiple reporting requirements such as GAAP & IFRS without having to replicate transactions.
  • Auto-Intercompany – providing the ability to record balanced intercompany transactions (Live) eliminating unnecessary reconciliations.
