SAP FI Subcomponents
SAP’s financial accounting is divided into submodules that reconcile with one another.
This article will focus on the SAP FI Subcomponents.
In SAP FI, everything is linked to General Ledger or G/L. G/L acts as the primary record to maintain all the financial transactions of the company. Example: customer transactions, internal company transactions, etc.

Asset Accounting deals with all aspects of the company’s fixed assets, including all transactions related to fixed assets. It works closely with other SAP modules, such as SAP MM, SAP Plant Management, and EWM. Example: When a company purchases a product that can be considered an asset, details about the purchase are sent from SAP MM to Asset accounting.

Fund management manages funds in a company. Various modules like General Ledger (G/L) and SAP AR/AP, as well as SAP Material Management, etc., interact with Fund Management to provide fund details. This covers all transactions relating to the receipt of funds, the expenditure of funds, and the future expenditure of funds. The company can use the funds in a proper manner and create a budget forecast.
