    • SAP FI/CO Interview Questions- 6 -WWW.SOFTBASIC.NET - Enterprise Software Portal
    • SAP FI/CO Interview Questions- 7 -Part I: AccountsPayable (AP)WWW.SOFTBASIC.NET - Enterprise Software Portal
    • SAP FI/CO Interview Questions- 8 -Question 1: Additional LogWhat is the additional log in the AP payment program andhow can it be used for troubleshooting ?A: The additional log is an important setting whenperforming a payment run. The amount of informationstored in the log can be selected (see below).If there are any errors with the payments run, due to eithermissing or incorrect master data settings, negativebalances due to credit memo’s etc, the system will reportthese in theadditional log.Support position interviews often ask this question as away of determining if you know how to troubleshoot day-to-day Accounts Payable operations.WWW.SOFTBASIC.NET - Enterprise Software Portal
    • SAP FI/CO Interview Questions- 9 -Question 2: Master DataHow can you link customer and vendor master records andwhat is the purpose of doing so ?A: On the customer master there is a field “vendor” andlikewise on the vendor master there is a field “customer”.By entering these master data numbers, a link can becreated between the AP/AR subledgers for use in thepayment program, dunning routine and the clearing ofopen items.For example in the payment program, if a specific businesspartner is your vendor but also your customer, linking theirmaster records together will allow the open AR invoices tobe offset against the outstanding AP invoices.WWW.SOFTBASIC.NET - Enterprise Software Portal
    • SAP FI/CO Interview Questions- 10-Question 3: Payment TermsWhat are terms of payments and where are they stored ?A: Payment termsare created in configuration anddetermine the payment due date for customer/vendorinvoices.They are stored on the customer/vendor master record andare pulled through onto the customer/vendor invoicepostings. The due date derived via the payment can bechanged on each individual invoice if requiredQuestion 4: Baseline DateWhat is meant by a “baseline date” in SAP AR and AP ?A: The baseline date is the date from which the paymentterms (specified in IMG transaction OBB) applyUsually this is the document date on the invoice but canalso be the date of entry or posting date from the ledgerWWW.SOFTBASIC.NET - Enterprise Software Portal
    • SAP FI/CO Interview Questions- 11 -Question 5: One Time VendorWhat are one-time vendors ?A: In certain industries (especially where there are a highvolume of cash transactions), it is not practical to createnew master records for every vendor trading partner.One-time vendors allow for a dummy vendor code to beused on invoice entry and the information which isnormally stored in the vendor master (payment terms,address etc) , is keyed on the invoice itself.WWW.SOFTBASIC.NET - Enterprise Software Portal
    • SAP FI/CO Interview Questions- 12 -Question 6: AP Vendor GroupWhat factors should be considered when configuring anAccounts Payable Vendor Group ?A: The following are determined by the creation of a newAP vendor group (transaction OBD3)• Whether the vendors in this group are one-timevendors – i.e. no master record is created but theaddress and payments details are entered againsteach invoice to this vendor• Field status group – which fields on the vendormaster are suppressed, optional or mandatorywhen creating vendors belonging to this groupAdditionally the vendor number ranges defined intransaction XKN1 need to be assigned to your vendoraccount groups in transaction OBAS. The decisionneeds to be made whether to assign an externalnumber range (where the user chooses the masterrecord number) or an internal number range (systemassigned)WWW.SOFTBASIC.NET - Enterprise Software Portal
    • SAP FI/CO Interview Questions- 13-Question 7: Payment RunName the standard stages of the SAP Payment Run.A: The following steps are usually performed during thepayment run• Entering of parameters (company codes, paymentmethods, vendor accounts etc)• Proposal Scheduling – the system proposes list ofinvoices to be paid• Payment booking – the booking of the actualpayments into the ledger• Printing of payment forms (cheques etc)Variations on the above may be found in different SAPcustomers, but the interviewer will be looking for the basissteps above.WWW.SOFTBASIC.NET - Enterprise Software Portal
    • SAP FI/CO Interview Questions- 14 -Question 8: Payment MethodsWhat is the purpose of payment methods and where arethey stored?A: Generally payment methods are one digitalphanumeric identifiers that indicate the type of paymentsmade to vendors or received from customers.There are many standard delivered SAP entries for eachcountry.For example for the UK, the following are pre-delivered:-WWW.SOFTBASIC.NET - Enterprise Software Portal
    • SAP FI/CO Interview Questions- 15 -The payment methods are stored in the vendor/customermaster record as well on vendor/customer line items. (Thedefault from master record can be changed during manualpostings)WWW.SOFTBASIC.NET - Enterprise Software Portal
    • SAP FI/CO Interview Questions- 16 -Question 9: Electronic BankingExplain briefly how you can import electronic bankstatements into SAP.A: A text file is received from the bank which is thenuploaded into the SAP system. The file contains details ofthe company’s bank movements e.g. cheques, bankinterest, bank charges, cash receipts etc. Depending on thesystem configuration SAP will attempt to book thesetransactions automatically to the correct accounts to avoidthe need for manual entries by SAP users.Any postings which the system cannot derive automaticallycan be booked through “post-processing”WWW.SOFTBASIC.NET - Enterprise Software Portal
    • SAP FI/CO Interview Questions- 17 -Part II: AccountsReceivable (AR)WWW.SOFTBASIC.NET - Enterprise Software Portal
    • SAP FI/CO Interview Questions- 18-Question 10 : Residual PaymentsIn Accounts Receivable, what’s the difference between the‘residual payment’ and ‘part payment’ methods ofallocating cash ?A: These are the two methods for allocating partialpayments from customers.As an example, lets say invoice A123 exists for 100$ and acustomer pays 60$.With partial payment, the 60$ simply offsets the invoiceleaving a remaining balance of 40$With residual payment, invoice A123 is cleared for the fullvalue 100$ and a new invoice line item is booked for theremaining balance of 40$.WWW.SOFTBASIC.NET - Enterprise Software Portal
    • SAP FI/CO Interview Questions- 19 -Question 11 : CorrespondenceTypesWhat are correspondence types in AR/AP ?A: Correspondence types are different outputs which canbe printed and sent to your business partners basedaround either customer vendor or GL information.Popular correspondence types include customerstatements, payment notices and line items lists. Withinthe most common AP/AR functions (such as ‘Displayvendor line items’ below there is the option to generatecorrespondence requests. At the end of the working daythese can be printed together as a batch and sent out.WWW.SOFTBASIC.NET - Enterprise Software Portal
    • SAP FI/CO Interview Questions- 20-Question 12: DunningWhat is “dunning” in SAP ?A: Dunning is the process by which payment chasingletters are issued to customers. SAP can determine whichcustomers should receive the letters and for which overdueitems.Different letters can be printed in SAP depending on howfar overdue the payment is; from a simple reminder to alegal letter.The dunning level on the customer master indicates whichletter has been issued to the customer.WWW.SOFTBASIC.NET - Enterprise Software Portal...deleted pages from 21 to 123
