      Hi Manjil,

      thanks for this blog, great summary!

      Regarding the Business Function FIN-FSCM-BNK, this is the business function for Bank Communication Management (see SAP Help). The Bank Lite Version is available in S/4HANA without activating any business function (see SAP Help).

      Do you agree?

      kind regards
