S4BP – Chart of Account : YCOA

S/4HANA Best Practice –

Today let’s look at SAP S/4HANA Best Practice, Chart of Account , YCOA

Chart of accounts is a list of G/L accounts. G/L account master data contains the data for the General Ledger to determine the function of the account. G/L account master records control the posting of accounting transactions to G/L accounts and the processing of the posting data. They are divided into two segments:

  • Chart of accounts segment –> The CoA segment contains the data that is valid for all company codes, such as the account number.
  • Company code specific segment –> The company code specific area contains data that may vary from one company code to another, such as the currency in which the account may be posted.

For each G/L account, the chart of accounts contains the account number, account name, and the information that controls how an account is used and how a G/L account is created in a company code.

YCOA is the global CoA for all countries and it is not industry-specific. Approximately 800 G/L accounts are currently defined in YCOA within the following number ranges:

50000000~59999999Cost of Sales
60000000~69999999Operating Expenses
70000000~79999999Other Income and Expenses
90000000~99999999Secondary CE (for internal allocation)

YCOA contains G/L accounts used in master data, account determination, and configuration of pre-delivered processes in the SAP Best Practices reference content or required by different accounting standards (IFRS or local GAAP).
