Group reporting consists of topics such as consolidation process and analytical reports and supports the computation, creation, and disclosure of consolidated reports that provide information on the performance of a corporate group.

Group reporting is embedded in the SAP S/4HANA core environment, combining two areas which were isolated in traditional consolidation solutions: Legal entity closing and corporate closing. Group Reporting also helps companies to embrace continuous accounting goal, accelerating their book closing processes.


A complete consolidation process typically starts with preparatory steps, such as setting global parameters, checking the master data of your organizational units and financial statement (FS) items, and specifying effective exchange rates.

Once done, data can be collected and reported by consolidation units, and standardizing the data with features available in the Data Monitor. When the data is ready for consolidation, go to the Consolidation Monitor to perform the consolidation tasks, such as various interunit eliminations and data validation. For a list of the tasks and their descriptions, see Data Monitor and Consolidation Monitor.
