The cash concentration enables automatic transfer postings in a specific frequency in a master contract. These are based on carryforward rules and relationship attributes.

The aim of cash concentration is to keep the account balances of the participating accounts within a certain value range at defined times. A main account (root account) at the top of the account hierarchy absorbs the surplus balances of the other accounts or compensates for any insufficiencies on these accounts. You can, for example, specify that an account must always have a certain minimum balance or that the remaining balance on an account is always to be transferred to another account (for example, an investment account) at the end of every month.

Hope this helps.
