If the vendor calculates additional costs for you once third-party business transactions have already been billed (for example, shipment costs), the costs from the invoice receipt are then corrected in the customer billing documents which have already been created.

Profitability Analysis

Subsequent debits from the invoice receipt are copied to profitability analysis as a difference amount. This means that the cost is updated here also. In accrued profitability analysis, the costs are not copied from the invoice receipt, but from the customer billing document.


This is only the case for documents created from 4.6A onwards. With the SD_VPRS_UPDATE report, you can update the costs created for the billing document before Release 4.6A.

The profitability segment is copied to the purchase requisition, and, in this way, copied to the invoice receipt via the purchase order. If the invoice receipt takes place, an indicator informing you that it is third-party order processing, is copied to profitability analysis. In profitability analysis dependant on posting date, the costs are transferred from the invoice receipt to profitability analysis (in contrast to accrued profitabillity analysis, for which the costs are copied from the customer billing document).


In the context of a third-party business transaction, you create a sales order for over 100 pieces. A purchase requisition and a purchase order are generated. Ten pieces are delivered to the customer, and a billing document is then sent to the customer when the 10 pieces are delivered. The vendor sets a subsequent debit of 100 USD for shipping costs in the invoice. The cost is now updated in the billing document created, and in the profitability analysis (in this case, it is raised by 100 USD).
