Invoice processing in SAP

Hello everyone,

a quick question (apologies but I am not an AP expert):

after verification, an invoice gets posted, then there is a payment which is automatically scheduled before the due date (and the due date is obviously dictated by the payment terms).

Is this how an invoice is generally processed in SAP?

The posting date itself doesn’t impact on the payment. Posting theoretically means “ready to be paid” but then the automatic payment is done on the due date in relation to the payment term.

Have I understood correctly?

Many thanks in advance.

    Hi Marie

    Yes, your understanding is correct. The due date is calculated based on the date in field "Baseline date for due calculation" in combination with the payment terms. Usually this is the date on the invoice

    The posting date on the other hand is used to derive the posting period. This is important to ensure that expenses are posted in the period where they have occurred.

    Best regards
