How to Create a New Business Partner in SAP S/4HANA Sales

In this blog post, we’ll show you how to create a new business partner in SAP S/4HANA in both the SAP GUI and SAP Fiori.


To create new business partners, open Transaction BP and follow the menu path More > Business Partner > Create > Organization. On the screen shown in the figure below, enter information about your new business partner.

These fields are divided into several major groups organized under tabs and in sections for ease of reference. Each implementation project will require attention to different portions of this screen.


Using SAP Fiori, business partners are managed using the Manage Business Partner Master Data app, as shown in the next figure. This app allows you to search for existing business partners as well as to create new ones.


Managing Business Partner Master Data


As shown above, the Create option (1) allows you to create new business partners in SAP Fiori. You’ll need to decide if the new partner is a Person or an Organization. In this example, we’ll select the Organization option (2).


The Manage Business Partner Master Data app will then open up a window where you’ll enter the main business partner attributes and address information, as shown below.

Once you’ve populated the main business partner attributes and clicked OK, your business partner will be created. This app will also allow you to maintain other master data in a web-friendly layout, as shown in the figure below.
