How to re-determine payment term in intercompany invoice

Hi experts

we are facing issue for payment terms in inter-company invoice. In inter-company invoice payment terms copied from customer master. but we require payment term to be copied from sales order.


created sales order with payment term Z001. payment term Z002 maintained in customer master. when we create customer invoice (F2) payment term copied from sales order but when we create inter-company invoice (IV) system determine payment term from customer master i.e. Z002 so that payment terms are different in invoices

kindly suggest way forward where payment terms in invoice F2 and IV should be same

    If you CRM is integrated, then have a look at the following note:-

    Else, check the following note:-

    Are we talking of Inter Company Sales / Drop Ship Process ??

    I am assuming that to be the case. If that is the case, then my basic question is what is the business need for this type of Payment Terms.

    These are two different payers. The Payer in the Normal Invoice is the Final Customer belonging to the Company which is ordering the Goods and the Payer in the Inter Company Invoice is the Ordering Company as a Payer Customer in the books of the Supplying Company.

    These two Payers are different and may always have different Payment Terms ? The ones in the IV Invoice should be copied from the Payment Terms of the Inter Company Customer.

    I ask one question for you to think about. If all the Final Customers have different payment terms then how you would deal with the Inter Company Payment Terms ? Each Invoice could potentially have different Payment Term even though the Ordering Company and the Supplying Company are the same combination.

    What you have with the Final Customer is an external engagement which has different legal terms and what you have with your partner company [read supplying company] is within the Corporate Umbrella so is technically internal and this could be a consistent payment arrangement.

    We can beat the system to have what you want somehow but the basis of the requirement seems to be misplaced.

    Points to ponder I guess 😎

    • Hi,

      While I can understand why your Business wants to have it that way, but it does not mean it is the best practice.

      I believe they just want to mimic every Final Customer Invoice[whatever the terms] and have the same payment terms between F2 and IV. I guess you are left with some kind of user exit stuff.

      Happy coding 😀

    • Hi Sumit,

      You need to check for a User Exit at the time of IC Billing which checks for the Original Sales Order / Customer Invoice Payment Terms and Mimics them in the document.

      I am sure your Technical ABAP Resource should be able to help.

      I do not see any direct Customizing Solution here.
