You can use cross-company code dunning to combine overdue items from several different company codes in one dunning run. The overdue items for business partners that exist in several company codes are dunned with a single dunning notice. This eliminates the need to send a customer a separate dunning notice for each company code.

You can also carry out cross-company code dunning for individual dunning notices. The same prerequisites apply as for the automatic dunning run.


If you wish to carry out cross-company code dunning, you must assign the relevant company codes to a common dunning (or leading) company code. The dunning procedure assigned to the business partner in the dunning company code is used. The dunning frequency and dunning blocks are checked individually, not just in the dunning company code.


If a date has been specified for an account in the dunning company code, which marks it for inclusion in the legal dunning procedure, this also affects the dependent company codes.

You can assign the relevant company codes to the appropriate leading company code in the dunning program.

You make the settings in the Accounts Payable or Accounts Receivable menu under Environment à Maintain configuration à Company code data. Enter the dunning company code indicator for those company codes that are to be included in cross-company code dunning.


If for example, you summarize company codes 0001, 0002, and 0003 for cross-company code dunning, defining 0001 as the leading company code, you can also dun subsets from company code 0001 across all the company codes.

If you enter company codes 0002 and 0003 under Parameters on the dunning screen, only documents from these company codes are summarized and dunned using the dunning procedure from company code 0001.
