Basically there are 5 major topics/areas in FI,

1. GL Accounting -

related tables are SKA1, SKB1 Master data

BSIS and BSAS are the Transaction Data

2. Account Receivables- related to Customer

All the SD related data when transfered to FI these are created.

Related Tables BSID and BSAD

3. Account Payables - related Vendor

All the MM related documents data when transfered to FI these are created

Related Tables BSIK and BSAK

All the above six tables data is present in BKPF and BSEG tables

You can link these tables with the hlp of BELNR and GJAHR and with Dates also.

4. Special Purpose Ledger.. which is rarely used.
