Facts permissible Rate maintained at register type Rate type ?

I just entered a new project as a billing functional, like you guys must have done started looking at the system out of curiosity. The first random Rate Category i opened, i found a register permissible rate type having facts permissible rate maintained to it and other register type rates. In my earlier project, this was a big no. Register type rate types had register type rates and facts type rate type had facts permissible rates. So is this a bad convention to have facts permissible rates in register permissible rate types ? Has this been done by some inexperienced person ? or is this the convention in other projects also that i am unaware of ? Thanks is advance for your help!

    "Has this been done by some inexperienced person? Or is this the convention in other projects also that i am unaware of?"

    Aren't these questions you should raise within the Project-Team or at the Customer-Project members?

    • Well if you would want me to Comment, I'll do that : If it was a big No in your previous Project, did you bother to ask why? That would possibly provide an Answer as to it being a 'Requirement' during the specific Project or as a 'Rule of Thumb' in general ...

      Personally I would also think you would want to keep things as 'transparant' as possible, so Mixing things up - however possible - is probably not the best choice ...

      I see nothing in SAP KBA's / ISU Cookbook or SAP Wiki as a general Recommendation and I would also be interested in some kind of a Solution Brief or a General Recommendation ... What specific sector is this Project in? I know there are some older Best Practices - Documents out there (for instance : "Best Practices for Water Utilities") ...

      See SAP-Help with regard to Best Practises for Utilities and there is a useful SAP Wiki with regard to Utlities Billing Master Data in general and the Rate Type specifically ...

      I did not find anything in particular in the (new) SAP Best Practices Explorer, but I hope you find the above useful ...

      Kind regards
