What's New Viewer - SAP S/4HANA

CI Debit/Credit Request

This feature provides flexible input options when you trigger creation of a credit memo or debit memo by creating a billing request for an invoicing document. You can enter a percentage by which the original amount of the selected item(s) is corrected, or enter a lump sum that is distributed proportionally across the original amounts of the selected items. You can also perform the following activities:
  • Reverse a released billing request and its billable items, provided that the billable items are not yet invoiced

  • Delete released or reversed billing requests, provided that the residence time has passed

  • Choose how the main attributes of the billable items to be created are determined, by configuring the billing request type accordingly.

For each invoicing document item or billable item to be corrected, you see the total amount of all released or non-released billing requests for that item. You also see the total amount for all released and non-released billing requests in the header data.
