Please note that you cannot maintain additional currency types than the provided.

These are provided by SAP but NOT configurable.


You can maintain two parallel currencies in additional to local currency or

Company Code Currency. You can select two currencies from the

following currencies:

Group currency

Group currency is the currency which is specified in the client table or

which is to be entered there.

Hard Currency

Hard currency is a country-specific second currency which is used in

countries with high inflation.

Index-based currency

Index-based currency is a country-specific fictitious currency

which is required in some countries with high inflation for external

reporting (for example, tax returns).

Global company currency

Global company currency is the currency which is used for an internal trading partner.

Maintaining the two parallel currencies would highly impact the system performance as

the system is preparing additional two ledgers, besides the normal ledger.
