How to clear partial payments in SAP?

Dear users / experts.

I am Credit Manager for Fossil Group and this year 2018 we need to improve AR management.

One of the major gaps we deal with is related with AR partial clearings (usually done with F-32) nevertheless, so far, the only way to clear a partial invoice is to create a AB class type document (clearing) that its not a document, nor anything actually (legally speaking). Are being very well reviewed by audit teams and to match all of them is quite a task, and millions of user hours wasted.

So, and referring your long time competitor Oracle E-Business Suite, and once I have worked with it, they have a field or column where "remaining amount from original invoice" is displayed, to be able to match partially any amount and without clearing / closing the original invoice.


Invoice 1000 € - Payment 900 € = SAP creates an AB with 100 € with reference to initial RV

Invoice 1000 € - Payment 900 € = ORACLE leave exactly as it was original document amount, being 2 columns visible (original amount 1000 €, remaining amount 100 €).

I have tried more than one time to ask our IT provider (Infosys) but they cannot confirm this option and honestly, if Oracle has it I am sure you also have it if not, sure you have a lot of request for developers.

Please reach me if any doubt is raised.

Thanks in advance,
