  Returns Lots


The returns lot is a central object in returns processing. It is essentially a grouping of documents that were sent back by the house bank and are settled with the same bank clearing account. Data can be entered in the returns lot both automatically and manually.


A returns lot consists of a header that describes the lot. It contains administrative data and general specifications that the system uses to post the individual items of the return.

You define the general specifications in Customizing. These include the document type, the clearing reason, the company code, the screen variant, and the selection type. (In Customizing for Contract Accounts Receivable and Payable, choose Start of the navigation path Business Transactions Next navigation step Returns Next navigation step Determine Document Type and Clearing Reason for Returns End of the navigation path ). At the item level, you can manually change specifications such as the posting date and value date, as well as entries for taxes and charges. However, you are not allowed to change the clearing reason and the currency.
