Financial planning:

With the SAP software you have budget creation, account assignment and budget allocation - in short: your entire financial accounting - securely under control. This also applies to budget control, including reporting and warning signals when the budget is exceeded.

Bank settlement:

Use SAP software to monitor all banking transactions - from cash withdrawals to check issuance, account balance, down payments, credit card payments, and account reconciliation.


Create financial reports with ease - including balance sheets, profit and loss statements, cash flow overviews, period comparisons and budget reports.

Journal entries:

Benefit from integrated financial accounting in the SAP software for medium-sized companies. The ERP system automatically creates postings for transactions in the areas of sales, purchasing and banking. Or create new journal entries in the SAP SMB solution. You can also search for existing journal entries and automatically assign each transaction to a project or profit center.

Parked documents:

Record multiple manual journal entries for batch processing and process them simultaneously in SAP's Midsize Business solution. This allows you to collect and review journal entries before they are recorded in the SAP General Ledger.

Posting templates:

Define account assignment models. This saves you time and avoids errors that can occur with manual journal entries.

Standing bookings:

Define your own postings in the SAP SME software that have to be carried out regularly by the accounting department and specify a frequency for the individual recurring postings. In the case of recurring entries, the ERP system automatically reminds you to book your transactions.

Cancellation bookings:

Have bookings automatically cancelled at the end of the month. By default, the cancellation of certain bookings takes place on the first day of the following month. With the SAP solution for small and medium-sized businesses, however, users can specify a different reversal date for the individual postings if required.

Exchange rate differences:

Valuate open items in foreign currencies periodically to determine and clear differences.

Financial report templates:

Quickly and easily create any number of templates for financial reports in SAP SMB software, such as additional profit and loss statements, depending on your business requirements.

Electronic tax returns directly from SAP

ELSTER stands for “electronic tax return.” It refers to a project by German legislators to facilitate the secure transmission of tax data electronically over the internet.

As an ELSTER-compatible application software, SAP Business One supports preliminary turnover tax returns. ELSTER integration as an add-on for SAP Business One allows you to use the data you have saved for your preliminary turnover tax returns.

These returns are then sent electronically to the proper tax office over the internet. A turnover tax report for these returns can be generated and printed at any time.

Beforehand, you simply need to submit a declaration of participation in paper form. This process only needs to be performed once.
