How can we block a rebate arrangement to stop accumulating business volume?

This is the scenario. We have rebate agreements with vendors. They are valid from the beginning of the year until the end of the year. We only have one rebate condition record with the same validity period as the agreement. We update the business volume when invoices are posted. This means that invoices posted at the beginning of next year should not be included on the business volume. We know that after running the settlement the business volume will stop accumulating under the rebate arrangement. This is not an option since we need probably 15 days after the end of the year to run the business volume comparison and discuss it with the vendor. Then, after the BV has been agreed with the vendor we will run the settlement. So we need to block the rebate arrangement so it does not change the business volume during those 15 days. We have tried changing the statuses but it does not stop the BV from being accumulated under the rebate arrangement.

Thanks and regards, Jose Oyon.

    Did you try changing the Validty of the rebate agreement condition?

    I havent worked a lot with rebate arranements in Purchasing (not many people have I guess)

    I guess somewhere you will need to Play around with dates, either the rebate aggrement Validity date or the Posting date of the Invoice.

    Hi Ravi,

    The dates on the condition are the same as the dates on the agreements. They are from 01/01/2013 to 12/31/2013. The issue is that we have purchase orders that cross from one year to the next. So if an invoice is processed let's say on 01/05/2014 the business volume is reflected on the 2013 agreement since the PO has the rebate condition. For this reason I am trying to find a way to block the rebate arrangement on 01/01/2014 until we do the settlement.

    Does anybody else has another suggestion, please?

    Thanks and regards, Jose Oyon.
