Function documentation Defining Clearing Between Customer and Vendor  Locate the document in its SAP Library structure


If a customer is also a vendor, or vice versa, you can have the payment program and the dunning program offset the customer and vendor open items against each other. You can also select the vendor line items when you display the customer line items for this account.


You can only offset the items against one another if you have carried out the steps under "Activities".


The system offsets the open items of the selected customers and vendors against one another in the dunning program and in the automatic payment program.


Before you can clear items between a vendor and customer account, you must:

  1. Create a customer master record for the vendor that is also a customer.
  2. Enter the vendor account number in the Vendor field in the control section of the general data in the customer master record.
  3. Enter the customer account number in the Customer field in the control section of the general data in the vendor master record.
  4. Choose Clrg with vend. and Clrg with cust. in the company code data in both the customer and vendor master records. In this way, each company code can decide separately whether it wants to offset the customer against the vendor.
