SAP FI - Park a G/L Document Posting

SAP FI also provides an option with Limited Authorization Amount for Posting.


An Accountant has an authority to post documents to a maximum amount $2000. Now he has to feed a document with an amount of $5000 for which he does not have the authority.

SAP FI provides a Park Facility for the document which allows the user to save the document but the amount is not posted in the G/L accounts.

This allows to review the document later reviewed by a higher authority Personnel who has appropriate posting amount authorization. Once approved, the document is posted in the G/L accounts.
