3024590 - Standard Account Determination Groups for Payables and Receivables are not Deployed


You have started to set up the chart of accounts, however the standard account determination groups for Payables and Receivables are missing.


SAP Business ByDesign.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Business Configuration work center.
  2. Go to Implementation Projects view.
  3. Open activity list.
  4. Open activity Charts of Accounts, Financial Reporting Structures, Account Determination.
  5. Click Edit Account Determination Groups.
  6. Check the Accounts Payable -> Groups for Suppliers and Accounts Receivable -> Groups for Customers.

 No default account determination groups are maintained.

  1. Click Restore Defaults -> No Records found.


The account determination groups for Accounts Payable and Accounts Receivables are not deployed since "Payables and Receivables Processing" is not scoped in the system, given that Customer Invoices, Expense and Reimbursement Management and Supplier Invoicing are not scoped as well.

Hence, the system would not need these account determinations if these business options are not scoped.


In order to scope Payables and Receivables Processing to enable the Payables and Receivables account determination groups, you may refer to below steps:

  1. Go to Business Configuration work center.
  2. Go to Implementation Projects view.
  3. Open project scope.
  4. Go to Scoping phase.
  5. Scope the options that activates Payables and Receivables Processing, such as Customer Invoices (under Sales), Expense and Reimbursement Management (under Travel and Expenses) and/or Supplier Invoicing (under Purchasing).
  6. Save and deploy the changes.
