What is the purpose of using F-54 in Down payment process

Hello All,

Can some one explain what is the purpose of using F-54 in Down payment process/


Down payment has been created by using F- 47. Posted under supplier as credit with special GL $100

Posted in SAP as noted item. Supplier Credit $100

Payment run generated by using F110. Payment processed to vendor. Entry as below.

Bank suspense account Credit $100

Supplier account Debit $100(with special GL)

Received final invoice posted in SAP under supplier account

Supplier account credit $100.

Cost Debit $100

Now supplier ledger showing:

Normal line item Credit $100

Special GL line item Debit $100

Q1. Is this OK to clear supplier ledger by using F-44, Normal Credit line item $100 against Special GL debit item $100?

Q2 or Is it mandatory to move Special GL debit item $100 to normal item by using F-54 before we perform F-44 fiction to match?

Q3 . Is any complication if just clear normal line item and special GL line item by using F-44?

    The process follows like this.

    1. Create DP Request using F-47.

    2. Make Payment to the DP Request using F110 / F-48.

    3. Post Supplier Invoice

    4. Adjust Invoice with the Down Payment using F-54

    5. Remaining Invoice / Payment (whichever has high value) will be shown as open in the Vendor Account.

    Answer to your questions, you transfer it using F-54 and clear it.
