When Do You Make Transfer Postings for Down Payments?
You must carry out a transfer posting of down payments manually in the following cases:
- You want to prepare your year-end closing . You have received the closing invoice for a down payment and can no longer clear it with the payment program, since you will not run the payment program until after you next prepare the balance sheet. In this case, you make a transfer posting for the down payment to ensure that the balance sheet is correct.
- You want to assign a down payment to a specific invoice, with which it is to be cleared. The system notes the document number of the invoice in the line item of the down payment. The payment program subtracts the down payment only when the corresponding invoice is paid.
- You want to clear a down payment partially. That is, a down payment is cleared with several invoices, which are paid at different times. You must clear each down payment amount manually.
