    1.In the sales order please change the billing date of the item manuall in each item billing date filed.

    so with this we can split the invoices.

    2. In the customer master , sales area data, billing tab we have a field called invoicing data. VF04 we have a option called sold to party, this option is related to the first option.

    Invoice dates (calendar identification)

    Identifies the calendar that determines the schedule of billing dates for the customer.


    If, for example, a customer wants to consolidate the invoices you send out, you can predefine the billing schedule in a calendar in the system. During billing, the system automatically proposes the appropriate billing date from the calendar.


    The system proposes the billing schedule from the customer master record of the payer. You can change the value manually in the sales document.

      Hi Sunny,

      Have you find the soulution for your requirement becoz I have also same requirement and trying to configure.

      Please let me know at the earliest.

      Our requirement is we need to bill the customer weekly and month wise in resource related billing.

      The time sheet data will come from CATSDB table and update into the KB21 table.

      Basing on the KB21 we do the Resource Related Billing.

      From SD Point of view where we can control weekly and monthly billing.

      I would appreciate for your prompt response.

    Setting up weekly and monthly billing calenders and assigning to the customer master would work but can be inflexible and a problem to maintain if you then have more customers with same or different billing requirements.

    If you are creating the Sales Orders from a contract then you could set up an item category with billing relevance of "periodic billing plan". The billing rules for monthly for billing either at start or end of month are available as SAP std. I think weekly is too but they are easy to configure.

    With periodic billing plans you dont have to worry about calendars and extending them into the future. It will alaways work within the validity start and end dates of the Contract or SO billing plan start and end dates.

    Take care in setting up any kind of periodic billing when it comes to revenue recognition especially if a customer comes along who is billed every two months for example. (IE bill at the beginning of the 2 month period and then recognise 50% of the revenue at the end of month 1 and the rest at the end of month 2)

    Revenue recognition will give you the flexibility to configure a robust solution which ensures revenue is posted and recognised according to required accounting and audit rules. EG USGAAP

    Again the recognition rules can be set for the item category.

    I would check with you FI/CO colleagues to find out whether the calendar method would comply and work for you or whether you need to consider a periodic billing plan with revenue recognition.

      Hi Tony,

      Even i was looking for billing PLan reason I am creating the SO with reference to contract.

      Sap has standard for monthly periodic plan but not for weekly

      Can you please how this will get configured.So we can have one periodic billing like 02 (standard) but different date determination rule (monthly ,weekly billing) on Billing plan Tab.

      And when i enter the dates it always give info regading the baseline warning messages how to avois this.

      How the revenue is recognised can you please explain in steps how this scenerio it can be configured but if we have billing plan in contrcat .it creates SO and we can do billing ,Is revenue recog mandatory .

      If I dont RR then it will work as we only to want to know that our customer are billed weekly and monthly.

      Thanks in advance.
