Cash management

Hi sap expert

i would like to get clarify whether both down payment request and downpayment will appear in CM/liquidity forcast. If not which one will be coming under CM/liquity forcast.

I had mapped downpayment request in Cash management. I have seen two planning level FF and FK. IF i assign FF planning level in account assignment for spl gl indicators. and after posting down payment request f-47 , down payment request should appear in liquidity forcast but it is not coming in Liquidity forcast.

However when i have paid down payment(f-48) it is appearing in liquidity forcast.

i would like to get clarify whether both down payment request and downpayment will appear in CM/liquidity forcast. If not which one will be coming under CM/liquity forcast.

Points will be awarded.

thanks

S AP

    Hello

    Down payment requests, down payments and invoices independently reduce earmarked funds. Consequently, the values display (reduced amount) is carried out separately for each activity (down payment request, down payment, invoice) in the consumption reporting.

    Down payment requests - Down payments - Invoices

    When posting down payment requests and down payments, you must take the following into account when reducing the earmarked funds with these documents:

    Down payment requests and down payments each reduce earmarked funds independently. Therefore, it is possible to enter a down payment request, a down payment and an invoice each with reference to earmarked funds and for the full amount of the reservation document.

    This ensures, for example, that both a down payment and its invoice can reduce the relevant earmarked funds without reducing double the amount.

    This procedure can also have disadvantages. Example: An earmarked fund is completely reduced directly (without a down payment settlement) by an invoice. Nevertheless, a down payment request and a down payment are both posted with reference to these earmarked funds. An invoice for these documents would then no longer be able to refer to these earmarked funds.

    You must therefore ensure that, when posting the documents, the reference to earmarked funds is the same for all documents, or hide the Earmarked funds field in the coding block to prevent down payment requests and down payments from reducing earmarked funds

    Hi

    Down payment request do'nt effect any financial forecosting and also do'not appear in the CM/liquidity forecost, (as the down payment request does not effect any financial books, unless you release the down payment with reference to DPR.(i.e your liquidity forcost will effect only when ever financial entry made).

    regards,

    Hi

    Down payment request does not appear in the cash management report. Only actual down payments made affect the Cash/liquidity management report.

    Down payment will affect both cash and liquidity management report.

    when you clear invoice with sdown payment, this will also have effect on cash management.

    Cheers

      Hi venkat/SAP expert

      this is long time. You have clarified over down payment request.

      I would like to raise a point.

      If i assign a flanning level FF in spl gl indicator F for account type F then Down payment request will appear in Liquidity forecast. This is because you are showing a tentative amount to be paid to vendor on future date.

      once the down payment is request is cleared it will be shown in LF as advance payment and will also appear in CM.

      I hope if we assigne planning level to DPR we are not doing any wrong process.

      Please give your view.

      thanks
