Accounts Payable from SD process

Hi everybody,

I have a doubt in my project. My client has a process inside MM when a purchase order is created and the final goal is a account payable. It´s a standard process with migo and miro for some claims like pumped water, dead freight, etc.

However, the commercial area tells us that this process should be done in SD so that the commercial area can track the customer's situation through reports.

So, what is done today in MM must be done in SD, even keeping the accounts. I thought about generating a credit note using a new reason for the order but as this process is done in SD, only an AR is generated and instead of the AR I need to generate an AP. I ask you: is there a possibility to configure SAP SD to generate an AP on a credit note? Or any possibility of standard configuration?

    Both are entirely different and it is not clear what is that the Business requirement is. If there is some purchasing activity involved, you need to have a PO, against which, MIGO & MIRO will happen and the Vendor has to be paid.

    On the other hand, if you supply a material to a customer, then, you have to create sale order, delivery, post the Goods Issue and Billing. Here, your customer will pay the invoice amount to you.

    Hello Sandro Pinto Mesquita

    Your question is not clear enough, but what I could decipher is that you are looking for some way to net off payable and receivables, ie, your customer is also your vendor (supplier). In that case, it is possible to link a customer to a vendor. Once you do that, standard AR Reports like FBL5N will also display the AP balances and you can either receive the net amount or pay the net amount to your business partner (customer or supplier) . You can also influence credit limit if you have set one with this.

    The below blog may be useful as an starting point.

    Thanks & Regards,

    Hi Sandro,

    If I understand your requirement correctly, there is a service provided by one of your vendor for which you are making payment through AP. Now your customer wants to the same process in AR or SD module. Here are my take on this requirement:

    1. There is a purpose for doing AP in MM. It is better to handle vendor processes in MM.

    2. If your customer wants to settle against credit memo and AP, that can be handled during FI AP run. Provided your cusotmer is both vendor and customer.

    3. If still required they can develop a solution to view credit notes available for vendor/customer. Apply them to setoff AP.

    Hope that solves your problem.
