hi guys

My question is are invoices entered against bill to or sold to customer?

The reason I ask this is because we have one to many bill to to sold to customer relationship.

Sorry, it is still not clear what you are asking about ... probably you need to elaborate more on what is the specific problem, which you are facing and what you have tried so far.


Adding to already asked, it would be better if you try in your system so that you will come to know how SAP is working.

Hi Guys,

Apologies if my question wasn't clear.

We have a one to one relationship between sold to and bill to customer. However due to business requirements there will now be one to many relationship between billto and soldto customers.

What I am trying to ascertain is where could this structure fall over in day to day finance operations. for example in cash allocations, on the customer ledger,rebates,sales order etc.

I acknowledge the sales order will be against the sold to party and that rebates will need to be created against the customer hierarchy. However is there anything I need to consider with this change that affect our credit control team etc?

Your help would be much appreciated.

There will not be any impact on the existing open FI documents. As long as Bill-To and Payer are different, there wont be any impact from FI side. For orders being created newly, there wont be any issue. So, still I am not clear what exactly you were trying to analyse. As I said already, open your system, maintain multiple Bill-To in Sold-To and create a sale order where system would ask you to propose which Bill-To should be assigned to that sale order. Once you save the billing document and an accounting document is generated, see which partner function system has considered. It would be Payer assuming in your case, they are different.

Thank you for your response. Please can you confirm that you meant 'as long as bill-to and payer are NOT different'?
