In this SAP Fico tutorials you will learn how to define tolerance groups for employees in SAP. In our previous SAP training tutorial we have learned how to define tolerance groups for G/L accounts in SAP.

Define Tolerance Groups for Employees

Tolerance groups for employees in SAP determines the upper limits for postings as per

  • Amount per document
  • Amount per open item account
  • Cash discount
  • Payment differences.

Scenario: – If we have 10,000 users and we have create account for every user which takes lot of time. In order to overcome this issue SAP has developed tolerance groups. We can define as many as tolerance groups for employees as per organizational requirements and assign with tolerance limits. The SAP system doesn’t allow the postings beyond their limits.

For example
