Retro-Billing with Invoice Customers

Good afternoon,

we are currently evaluating receiving Retro-Billing information from invoice customers through EDI and process them automatically. Currently the retro-billing information are processed in SAP standard transaction VFRB.
This means we want to move the retro-billing data we receive today by paper to EDI. This is not retro-billing in the SBI-context - this is retro-billing for invoice customers.

The current concept involves receiving the data, transferring an iDoc to the SAP-system and trigger a customer specific function module which:
- contains multiple check-routines (e.g. is the message valid? are all information present?)
- creates a batch-input file like VFRB
- creates the credit memo request
- invoices the credit memo request (creates the credit memo)

Are there already any experiences with such a request? A standardized approach could unfortunately not be found. Retro-Billing is otherwise always named with self-billing.

Looking forward to your input and suggestions.

Thank you very much.

Best regards

    You can try with SBINV Message Type with FM IDOC_INPUT_SBINV to process retro billing via IDocs type GSVERF03

      Thank you for this hint.

      But is this FM not directly related to "self-billing procedure" in SAP? That means that all SBI checks, routines, etc will be executed when using this FM?

      Because we only want to create the credit memo request and the credit memo with relation to our invoice which has been sent out to the customer "in a traditional way" (not received through SBI!).

      This means only the red marked documents should automatically be created.

      Best regards
