Clearing Status Added to OData API for Billing Documents

With this feature, consumers of the OData API Billing Document - Read, Cancel, GetPDF can now retrieve the clearing status of billing documents in your system. A billing document counts as fully cleared when it has been posted to financial accounting and the corresponding incoming payment has been received (for example, a customer’s payment of an F2 invoice) or the corresponding outgoing payment has been sent (for example, a refund that is granted through a G2 credit memo). Financial accounting automatically updates the clearing status when a relevant incoming or outgoing payment is posted.

Additional Details

A billing document can have the following clearing statuses:
  • ' ' (blank): Not relevant

    This status is set when a billing document that has not yet been cleared is canceled. The corresponding cancellation document is also set to this status. (When, on the other hand, a cleared billing document is canceled, the status is set to C and the cancellation document’s status is set to A until it's cleared, which changes its status to C.)

  • A: To be cleared

    The billing document has not been cleared yet. Depending on the specific billing type, it must be cleared by either an incoming payment or an outgoing payment. A newly created billing document usually receives this status.

  • B: Partially cleared

    The billing document has been cleared partially. This means that an incoming payment smaller than the document total amount has been received or an outgoing payment smaller than the document total amount has been sent.

  • C: Fully cleared

    The billing document has been fully cleared, meaning that there are no open amounts.
