SAP E-Book


You use this program in new General Ledger Accounting to perform closing and opening entries for a change in fiscal year.

For classic General Ledger Accounting, you use the program Year-End Postings (RFSUMB00).

This program creates the following postings:

  • Postings for year-end closing of the profit and loss statements for the fiscal year result
  • Postings for closing and opening the balance sheet accounts for the new fiscal year

In this program, the postings are created in real time using the interface to Accounting (with reference transaction GLYEC).

The totals records resulting from the closing and opening entries are updated with record type 5 to be able to distinguish them in reporting from totals records from operational postings (record type 0). The postings are made using the account assignments in the totals record table.

To summarize balances using specific account assignment characteristics, you can use the Business Add-In (BAdI) Summarize Balances Using Account Assignment Characteristics.

Validation is not performed for transferred account assignment characteristics.

You can choose between the following country versions of the program:

  • Italy
  • Slovakia
  • Turkey
  • Portugal
  • Romania
  • Colombia

The country versions correspond to the legal requirements of those countries. Use the system variant SAP&* appropriate to the country version you select.

When creating your own report variants, always use the respective system variant SAP&* as a template. Parameters that are set in the background in these system variants influence how the report performs postings. To ensure that the posting logic meets the legal requirements for the respective country, you should always start the report with the respective system variant or with a modified copy. The standard delivery corresponds to the posting logic for Italy.



You must fulfill the following prerequisites before you can execute the program:

  • The accounting reconciliation of the last fiscal year has been printed out.
  • The posting periods for posting the year-end closing and for opening the current fiscal year are open.
  • The last transaction for the balance sheet has been run.
  • Apart from the special periods for closing entries, the posting periods of the last fiscal year are closed.
  • The accounting reconciliation of the current fiscal year has been printed out and the totals have been validated.


Year-end closing entries for profit and loss statements

The program saves the annual net profit or loss in table FAGL_TRVOR as the comparison value for closing the balance sheet accounts.

In Turkey, you have to close account group 7 separately. To do this, use the program Turkey: Closing Account Class 7 (RFIDTRCLACCL7).

Since the postings are made using the reference transaction GLYEC, you can make postings directly to G/L accounts for which the Post Automatically Only indicator is selected. You cannot enter any other characteristics or account assignments.

Before performing the program in an update run, ensure the following:

  • No other postings are made in your system at the same time.

  • For the postings with this program, you use a separate document type with its own document number range. This enables you to clearly identify this type of posting in reporting (document journal).
