Background documentationInvoice Types

 

The following invoice types are available:

  • Invoice

    A document that a supplier creates to charge a customer for goods that the supplier provides to that customer.

    An invoice has the invoice type Invoice, and the invoice item type Invoice Item.

  • Self-billing invoice

    A document that a customer creates containing details of amounts to be charged to the customer for goods the supplier provides to that customer. A supplier does not create an invoice for goods that are invoiced using self-billing invoice processing.

    A self-billing invoice has the invoice type Self-Billing Invoice and the invoice item type Invoice Item.

  • Subsequent debit or credit

    An additional document that the supplier creates for a transaction that has already been invoiced. The subsequent debit or credit charges an additional value for, or reduces the original value of, a quantity of goods that has already been invoiced.

    A subsequent debit or credit has the invoice type Invoice and the invoice item type Subsequent Credit or Subsequent Debit.

  • Revaluation

    A document that the customer creates if the price of a product changes and the price change is valid retroactively.

    A revaluation determines the difference in value for items that have already been invoiced. A customer can only create a revaluation for a purchase order or advanced shipping notification that has the Evaluated Receipt Settlement (ERS) indicator. That is, a revaluation can only be created for self-billing invoice items.

    A revaluation has the invoice type Self-Billing and the invoice item type Revaluation Credit or Revaluation Debit.

    Note Note

    A revaluation is only possible as part of a self-billing invoicing scenario.

    End of the note.

Structure

The invoice consists of two levels:

  • Invoice header

    The invoice header contains data that affects the whole invoice, such as tax information, address data, and terms of payment.

  • Invoice item

    The invoice item contains data specific to the product item that is being invoiced, such as product description and quantity and value of the goods. SAP SNC does not support text items. Text items cannot be transferred from an ERP back-end system to SAP SNC.
