Customer Rental process only through SAP FI

Hi Expert,

I would like to know how to setup Customer Rental process only through SAP FI. The scenario would be like this:

  • The company will raise a down payment request to the customer.
  • The customer will pay Advance rent (30,000 USD - Deferral Income) for 3 months as per the agreement and we need to show 10,000 as rental income for each month.
  • After 3 months, the customer will pay again advance amount for 3 months and this process will continue till the end of the contract.

I would like to know step by step process to be followed in SAP so that we can meet the accrual/deferral accounting concept in a systematic way.

Thanks & Regards,

    This is a common process in RE-FX (OSS Note 633924). However, if you do not have that, than you should use the below process:

    1. On payment against the downpayment request (F110) or F-29. The accounting entry would be as under:

    Bank Incoming Payment Dr 30000

    To Customer Down Payment Rental - Special GL 30000

    2. Record the Customer Rental Invoice every month ($ 10000)

    Customer Recv Dr 10000

    To Rental Income 10000

    Use FB70 or FB01 to record the same

    3. Now adjust the down payment (FB05)

    Customer Down Payment Rental - Special GL Dr 10000

    To Customer Recv 10000

    Thanks & Regards

      Could you specify the effort you have made in using FB05 with the option transfer posting with clearing radio button and what error you are encountering in executing the transaction?

      While you post your query, you should also list down the steps taken by you and not expect the community members to advise as a coaching institute to say the least !!

      Thanks & Regards
