Company and Company Codes

As part of the initial system configuration it necessary to set up the organisational structure for which AMP must be enabled. These two nodes are used for setting up the Companies and Company Codes.

The Company object relates to the SAP Group company concept. It is the highest organisational level and represents the legal business organisation. It must contain at least one company code.

Create- create a Company Code/Company in the AMP Cockpit that already exists in the SAP System. To help creation of the object a dropdown is available to select the Company and Company information / Company Code and Company Code information to be created.

Update- Update a Company Code/Company in the AMP Cockpit, when changes have been made to this particular object in the SAP System.

Delete- Delete a Company Code/Company in the AMP Cockpit.

List – Displays the list of all Company and Company Codes that have already been set up to the AMP Cockpit.


The Company Code equals the SAP Company Code object and signifies the smallest independent unit for which self-contained financial statements must be prepared. It is the level at which invoice processing is managed in the AMP cockpit.

When the Company Code is created in AMP it is also assigned to the Company.

When the List of company codes is displayed we can see the following information:

Posting Flag Company Code Comp.Code Name Company Name Length Max Period Date + Time

This flag controls how invoice posting is managed from the AMP cockpit. It determines whether posting the invoices from the AMP cockpit to SAP is allowed.

If it is deactivated AMP only allows the user to use  the Park functionality to park the invoice in SAP. This can be relevant if the business process requires all invoice processing to be managed via the SAP Park functionality, for example to also enable the use of the SAP invoice approval workflow system.

The company code The name of the company code The linked company name Max. Length of the GL account numbering

This value can be used in period end closing procedures. It is used when determining the maximum allowed number of days calculated from month end that it is allowable to post invoices in the previous accountingperiod. 

Example: If the max period value = 4 days and the current accounting period = 10, and the posting date is set as 31-09, an invoice may bepo sted to period 09 up and including to 04-10. After this date, the invoice must be posted to the current period. Values are calendar days
