Dear Friends,

What should be the best way to manage, if a SAP B1 client's customers frequently settle their A/R Invoices by less payments?

    In Payment Window, if u do less or over payment than Bill Amount, the remaining will go as Payment on Account.

    To avoid this Payment on Account during Over/Under Payment, we have a option as

    Administration > System initialization > Document Settings > Per Document > Incoming Payment

    you will find a Text Box as Under/Overpayment Amt Allowed, Fill min/max payment diff amount,

    ex : Bill 1100, Payment 1000

    Fill Under/Overpayment Amt Allowed as 100. so, whenever you make a under payment, the remainig amount automatically post to Overpayment A/R Account or Underpayment A/R Account mapped in

    Admin > setup >Financials > G/L Acc Determin > Sales > General >Underpayment A/R Account

    • Hi Narottam,

      indeed, I can confirm that it doesn't work in the B-cluster. I have updated the long text in the note to that effect in addition to the validity info.

      I tested a few different scenarios & set-ups, but was unsuccessful in achieving an automatic tax adjustment. I would be very much interested in a solution, until then, you will probably have to make the tax adjustment manually.

      All the best,

    • Dear Michael Boucher,

      Let's say a A/R Invoice total is 1100.00, and now at time of payment customer is paying 1000.00 as full settlement of the said invoice. And this is what I mean by less payment. Also please mention that, is this can be a legal practice?
