A question on Credit Control Area Derivation...

Hi,

A company code is singularly assigned to a Credit Control Area i.e a company code can't be assigned to many Credit Control Area's.

Then there are 4 ways to derive a credit control area :

a)from a Company Code

b) from Sales Area

c) from Customer Master(Sales Area Data)

d) User Exit EXIT_SAPFV45K_001 : To derive from Sales Order Header Fields.

As per my understanding all the above point to one Credit Control Area only as Sales Area,Customer Master Sales Area Data and Sales Order would dirctly or indirectly belong to on Company Code only which in turn belongs to one Credit Control Area.

Or is it possible to have Credit control Areas which are not assigned to any company code??

Please Clarify.

Regards

Mangesh

    • Hi,

      b) from Sales Area

      c) from Customer Master(Sales Area Data)

      d) User Exit EXIT_SAPFV45K_001 : To derive from Sales Order Header Fields.

      All the above will determine the credit control area if the default credit control area is not assigned to the COMPANY CODE

      All the three will just play secondary role after the company code assignment

      Assignment for sales area:-

      We will compare the sales order value for that particular customer maintained in FD32

      For example, the customer can be maintained in different sales area and order can be place across each sales area, so we have to individually compare the sales order value for each area then determining credit control area , for which sales area is used

      In summary, we can monitor the credit Sales area wise


      customer master:-

      in the customer master, we will get a list of credit control areas permitted for that particular company code

      There is a confguration setting for maintaining the permitted credit control area for each company code

      Main purpose of maintaining at the customer master is, it will link the sales area and permitted credit control area using customer

      User Exit EXIT_SAPFV45K_001:-

      This user exit is used if any of the above combinations not determining the credit control area

      using this exit with VBKD - Business data, the credit control area will determine

      probably you have to check with your developer on how the value is getting determined

      let me know more clarification is needed?

    Hi Friend,

    See this is not possible. Because Company Code is assigned to Credit Control Area, Since if it is not assigned then the system will not follow the credit process.

    Hi Mangesh,

    Credit management is tightly integrated between SD and FICO modules, when you assign a CCA at Sales Area level you are just overwriting the company code assignment, remember you are not deleting the assignment. Without company code assignment one cannot impact FI AREA.
