With Margin Analysis in S/4HANA, internal accounting is merged onto a common, all-encompassing line item table together with external accounting. Through real-time integration in the Universal Journal and extended functionalities, Margin Analysis, as a further development of accounting-based Profitability Analysis, moves into the focus of management reporting and fulfills the requirements for efficient, internal reporting.
The account-based presentation eliminates time-consuming reconciliation work and reduces the workload of the specialist department. Real-time integration with financial accounting ensures consistency of figures and increases transparency in accounting. In addition, the integration of incoming sales orders and statistical postings enables flexible reporting.
SAP plans to implement all future developments for internal reporting in Margin Analysis. The classic profitability analysis with the imputed or accounting approach will not be developed further. Against this background, a conception and implementation of Margin Analysis is mandatory within the scope of an S/4HANA transformation. Meet this challenge and guarantee transparent profitability analysis.
