 Credit Allowances in Billing and Revenue Innovation Management


You can process allowances in SAP Convergent Invoicing. For transferring allowance information, you can use the interface component Allowances (ALLOWANCE), which makes fields available in the consumption item that can be used for creating an allowance.

You can recognize the revenues from allowances in the general ledger. The feeder system (SAP Convergent Charging) reports, using an action code, if a billable item represents revenue to be posted as deferred, or already recognized revenue. Billing updates the action code in the billing document items. Invoicing enters deferred revenue according to the action code for the billing document items and recognizes the revenue. Clearing takes place automatically. In Customizing, you specify for each cost type and revenue type if the feeder system reports consumption as a quantity or an amount.
