How a sub ledger is linked to a general ledger?

Sub ledgers like accounts payable, accounts receivable and asset accounting are created to obtain detail transaction of vendor, customer and asset transactions respectively.

Sub ledgers are linked to general ledgers by an assignment of reconciliation Accounts to its respective master i.e. for accounts payable we need to create a reconciliation account and assign it to the vendor master, for accounts receivable we create reconciliation account and assign it to the customer master and similarly we do it for asset master.

Through this assignment, data from sub ledger accounts will be transferred to the reconciliation ledger by which we can view balance entries in reconciliation account and line item entry in sub ledger accounts.

What is an asset class?

Asset class in sap is defined as the main type of asset that a company will be requiring for its business. It controls various parameter of creating asset master and the default values needed for an asset master.

Asset masters are created under one asset class. We can not create asset master without an asset class.

Examples of asset classes are;

  • Building
  • Plant
  • Machinery

Under each asset class we create asset master. Like under building asset class we create building 1, building 2 asset master.

What is an asset master?

Asset master record all information about a particular asset. Asset masters are created under one asset class. If you have 5 buildings then you create building as an asset class and under that create 5 different asset masters for each building. We post transactions to asset master not to an asset class.
