Instant clearing in SD for down-payments of billing plan

Dear experts,

Please, advise on the following issue.

We have Billing plan active in our SD module. We have down-payment requests in SD and incoming bank payments that clear these requests.

Thus, we have open down-payments in a customer's account.

The question is - Is there a standard way to instantly clear such a down-payment and an FI invoice when it (FI invoice) is generated in SD module during VF01 transaction run?

It seems logical to do it right during VF01 posting, at least, for the cases when an invoice and a down-payment match 1-to-1 in the amount.

Thank you for your advice.

Best regards,

Anton Morgunov

Normally, an invoice would be generated for submission to buyer and since already from SD side, you would be generating, why you want to generate one more from FI side ?

Hi G Lakshmipathi,

I didn't mean to have one more fi invoice. I meant to have the fi invoice that is being generated by SD cleared with an FI customer down-payment.

We raised a message with SAP on this issue and they said it's not a standard function.

Thank you for your answer anyway.

Best regards,
