Use

Some customers may require invoices to be processed periodically, so that all deliveries due for billing by a certain time are put into one collective invoice.

Prerequisites

To fulfill this requirement, a billing schedule must be defined for the customer:

Activities

When a sales document is created, the system copies the invoice date from the factory calendar and enters it into the relevant document as follows:

On the next billing date determined by the factory calendar, the system selects all sales orders and deliveries and puts them in a billing due list. They can now be billed.

As a result of the ID-number of the factory calendar defined in the customer master record, all sales orders or deliveries for that customer over a particular period have the same billing date, and they can be combined in one collective invoice.

The following figure shows how the system proceeds if a billing schedule has been defined for a customer.

This graphic is explained in the accompanying text
