 Contract Account


This component enables you to create and manage contract account master data.

Implementation Considerations

Every posting in Collections/Disbursements is assigned to a business partner and a contract account, or an insurance relationship from which a contract account is determined. In the master record for the contract account or the insurance object, you define parameters that control posting and processing for the documents in the Collections/Disbursements system. These include, for example, settings for payments and dunning.


Master data can be changed automatically by certain business transactions. In this way, for example, a return can result in a processing lock being set.


A contract account is always assigned to one business partner as the account holder. An insurance relationship is always assigned to just one contract account and multiple insurance relationships can be assigned to a contract account.

You can transfer data manually or automatically.

The system logs changes to master data. See Logging Changes
