How to prevent post dated cheque from reducing the credit exposure?

Hi Experts,

Currently I'm doing a post dated cheque via F-28, the only difference is the posting date is a date in the future. However the problem comes in when this cheque is reducing the credit exposure although the cheque is in the future. The business process is that the cheques that are in the future are not to included for the fear that the cheque might not be able to be cashed with some bad customers. This is so to keep the credit limit will be reached if the customer cheque that is not cashed is too much.

Is there a way to exclude the post dated cheque (future-dated payment) in the credit credit managment calculation?

Any help or insights is much appreciated.

Best regards,

    If you use F-28 to book customer payments, your credit limit will be decreased. As an alternative, create a new special GL indicator to designate PDC receipts from customer. In FBKP configuration for Special GL Indicator, you may mark this special GL Indicator as not relevant for credit. So when you use this special GL indicator to record the cheque, it will not impact the credit limit.

    • Hi

      I believe using special GL Indicator for PDC is a better way to control things. The changes to any report may be minimal in my view.

      If you do not want the future postings to be considered in credit calculation, so please look for a suitable enhancement for your automatic control configuration under the below configuration path:

      SPRO -- > Sales & Distribution -- > Basic Functions -- > Credit Management and Risk Management -- > Credit Management -- > Define automatic credit control.

      Here you can assign and write an enhancement under the field document controlling and specify such a criterion.

      Also be mindful, once any such change goes into production, you will have rebuild the credit history for all the posted documents on SD and FI-AR to ensure that the new configuration is effective for all the data or else you will see inconsistencies in how credit configuration works.

      I would still recommend to use the standard functionality of using special GL Indicator rather than looking for an enhancement since most of the business scenarios can be met using standard configurations itself

      Please let me know if you need any further inputs

      Thanks & regards
