 Final settlement


When you carry out final settlement of a rebate agreement, the system automatically

  • calculates the rebate based on the sales volume statistics or the lump sum

  • deducts any previously paid rebates

It then creates a credit memo request, and proposes the end date of the agreement validity period as the billing date.

The system also reverses any accruals that have been posted.

Note Note

Depending on Customizing, when the system creates a credit memo request, the document is automatically blocked for billing. After approving the credit memo request, the person responsible can remove the billing block. You can then create the final credit memo.

When you want to search for credit memo requests during sales order processing, you can use the matchcode F "Credit memo request for rebate".

End of the note.

You can carry out final settlement of rebate agreements

  • automatically

  • Manually

  • as a background task (in batch)

Settling Single Rebate Agreements

You can carry out settlement directly from within a rebate agreement.

Before you save the rebate agreement you can still carry out changes to the credit memo request:

Note Note

The credit memo request is only saved when you save the rebate agreement.

End of the note.

Carrying out Final Settlement as a Background Task

If the volume of your sales rebate processing is high, you can collectively process rebate settlements as a background task.

The following reports are available:

  • RV15C001

  • RV15C002

Your system administrator can use these reports to generate a list of rebate agreements, based on various selection criteria, such as rebate recipient, status of the agreement, and so on.

Background processing can then be carried out later. I.e., after the regular posting periods.

After a list is generated, the rebate agreements can be analyzed or processed for payment.

For more information about settling rebates as a background task, see your system administrator.
