2980182 - Trading Partner creation in S/4HANA Cloud


In the Org structure application there is no option to add trading partners, but your business does require it.


S/4HANA Cloud


What is a Trading partner?

Trading partners are required for consolidation reporting purposes, for payments to units that are outside (or not yet in) the cloud solution. Trading partners are created as companies, not company codes.

For the full functionality supported by a company code, e.g. General Ledger accounting, country solution has to be created in the cloud, afterwards creating the company code. There is no alternative to this.

What are the constraints of setting trading partner's language key?

The language key can be changed in the SSC-UI/fine-tunning UI.

What are the constraints of with regards to currency key?

The currency key cannot be changed even in expert configuration, i.e. a customer located in GB must have currency GBP; a customer located in IT must have currency EUR.


Trading partners can be only requested with an approved WSR. An incident has to be raised to "XX-S4C-SRV-CON" component (Expert configuration). Hence kindly contact your Product Expert / Customer Success Manager who will help to coordinate your request to create the WSR.
