Dunning fees per invoice


In SAP FI, dunning fees are set-up in FBMP per dunning level.

This means that customer has to pay dunning fee for one dunning letter.

My need would be to calculate the dunning fee for each invoice with a delay (due).

For example 40€ per invoice.

Example: If in my dunning letter I have 4 invoices, dunning fees should be 4x40 = 160€.

An other need would be to calculate interest on delay of paiements.

This could be done using a fixed rate or a floating rate.

Example : Rate is 12%, invoice is 1000 € and delay is 1 month. The interest should be 12% x 1000€ * 1/12 = 10€.

The first one should be printed on the dunning letter.

And both indicators should be available somewhere in the customer account (for reporting).

This need answers to french law (Art L 441-6 du code de commerce, law LME). I guess there is no standart to implement this but I wanted to be sure before going for a 100% specific coding of the solution.

Thank you for your help and for all the answers I already found here on so many issues.

    Dear Francois,

    Point 1

    i think the first requirement to charge a fixed fee for each due invoice can not be handled in SAP standard in FBMP. The fixed dunning fee in SAP standard is issued globally for each dunning notice.

    Point 2

    Include interest in the dunning notice is SAP standard. Just flag the respective box in the configuration. FBMP. Interest rates are maintained in several transactions.

    see Accounts receivable/Environment/Current settings

    S_ALR_87002678 - Enter Reference Interest Values

    S_ALR_87001320 - Enter Interest Rates

    S_ALR_87002510 - Enter Time Interest Terms

    In general, check the configuration SPRO in the Directory "Interest calculation" in the Account Receivables.

    There you will also find one entry "Define Fixed Amounts for Interest Calculation" which might be useful to solve point 1 (workaround) as you can cumulate one Fix amount and % interest rates for each overdue position in the dunning notice.

    Point 3

    Create interest invoices is possible in SAP standard. You can define if they should be posted or not. Both options possible. See "Interest Posting" in the configuration SPRO.

    Kind regards
