How Account Relationship as "is payer of" behave in system?


In SAP ByDesign, I would like to ask how system behave on payment/clearing when I config Account Relationship as "is payer of", or if it is for information purpose only.

Best regards,

    Hi Toom,

    Let's assume supplier account 'A' and 'B'.

    If account 'A' has the relationship "Has the Payee" as 'B' in its master data, this means that supplier 'B' is then responsible for the invoices' payments. In the master data of account 'B' you also see the relatioship "is the payee of " 'A'.

    In pratical terms, you create a supplier invoice for account 'A', this invoice becomes an open item in the supplier account monitor of account 'A', however when you choose e.g. Pay Manually By -> Outgoing Check the system fills in the check document with payee as 'B'.

    I hope this answers your question.

    Hi Alexandre,

    If we look at the open invoices to be paid to supplier 'B', we do not see the supplier invoice created on account 'A' but that "Has the Payee" as 'B'. Is this standard behaviour? Is there any way to correct this?

    • Dear Ashley,

      In my understanding, open item of supplier invoice for Supplier 'A' is still belong to Supplier 'A'. So, you will not see open invoice of 'A' in Supplier 'B' payable. This relationship setting will be used in Payment step only as system will automatically entry Supplier 'B' as payee.
