Uplatz offers this comprehensive training on Accounts Payable in SAP. This is self-paced (video-based) online course.

Accounts Payable (AP) is a critical SAP FICO module application that aids in the recording and management of all vendor accounting data. Sundry creditors are referred to as accounts payables, while sundry debtors are referred to as accounts receivable in SAP.

Because business transactions are carried out separately in vendor accounts, SAP Accounts Payable accounting is also known as sub-ledger accounting. All transactions handled through accounts payable are directly entered in the general ledger account. The parameters specified in the general ledger master during account creation will be used to update the account in real time. The settings are made by selecting vendors for the account type's reconciliation account. Every posting in accounts payable creates a corresponding posting to a designated general ledger account, ensuring that the sub ledgers and the general ledger are constantly balanced.

The Accounts Payable application component keeps track of and manages all vendor accounting data. It's also a crucial element of the buying system, where vendors' deliveries and bills are tracked. In reaction to the operative transactions, the system performs automated posts. Similarly, the system feeds statistics from bills to the Cash Management application component to help with liquidity planning.

This course by Uplatz covers the technical data context of contract accounts sub-ledger and its integration into FI general ledger accounting and other standard SAP modules. Using concrete examples, participants learn how the most important business processes from the contract accounting area are represented in the system. An impression is given of how efficient revenue management can be achieved based on the contract accounts receivable and payable.

This SAP Accounts Payable course will provides a deep-dive on Accounts payable under SAP Financial & Controlling software.

Course rating


What does study method mean?

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

What are CPD hours/points?

CPD stands for Continuing Professional Development. If you work in certain professions or for certain companies, your employer may require you to complete a number of CPD hours or points, per year. You can find a range of CPD courses on Reed Courses, many of which can be completed online.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
