FICA - Clearing Information

Hello FICA Gurus,

I would like to know how clearing reasons are mapped to main and sub in FICA. Like for write-off reasons (04- Manual run and 14- Mass Run) where does the system determine the default main (0090) and Sub (0100). Similarly for payments by default the system defines clearing reason 01- Incoming payments how does the system defaults to PYMT 1000.

I know some of these are default and cannot be changed as per these thread but I need to define a clearing reason and map it to different main sub. Please let me know any

    Hari,

    There is a SPRO config, where you map the main/sub Transaction that you use with the Internal main/sub Transaction.

    The internal main/sub transaction are defined by SAP and any process say for example write-off is triggered, SAP retrieves the internal main/sub combination and tries to find the mapped main/sub Transaction and post the financial entry

    The SPRO config is Contract Accounts Receivable and Payable-->Basic Functions-->Postings and Documents-->Document--->Maintain Document Assignments-->Maintain Transactions for IS-U-->Maintain Transactions for Charges

    Double click on Allocate Transactions to Internal Transactions folder and you will be able to see the entries.

    This config can be over ride in the event 1310.

    Thanks,

    Amlan

    Than you Amlan. Really appreciate and sorry I missed this as it did not send an email alert to me. This is great. So just one final piece of puzzle further where does the system link incoming payment (PYMT -1000) linked to clearing reason "01" where as the mass write-off is linked to clearing reason "014". It seems the system interprets the clearing reason to these internal "Main Transaction" and "Sub Transaction"

    Hari,

    Clearing reason is transaction specific and not linked to main/Sub combination.

    For payment lot, it's controlled from posting area 1030, where as for mass write-off its controlled from posting area 1053.

    Similarly,for individual write-off it's controlled from posting area 1052.

    All the SAP standard Clearing reasons are configurable for each business process in SPRO.

    In some transactions, like payment lot,you can override the clearing reason, in the selection screen, but for some you cannot.

    The SAP standard Clearing reasons are exhaustive enough to cover all the Business processes.

    Why do you require to configure a new clearing reason?

    Thanks,

    Amlan

    Hi Aman,

    We need a new clearing reason defined for business process not defined in standard SAP. It is remission process which should clear the debt and new main and sub so I need a new clearing reason associated with it. How do I do that?

    Hi Hari,

    Seems you looking to maintain the table TFK001A, can you please check the maintenance of this table using SM30.

    Thanks,

    Anand

    Thanks Anand and Aman. The SM30 solution to update the table TFK001A seems a bit weird. I thought SAP would provide a SPRO path for it. But I will definitely give a shot to it. The other way round would be to use the posting area transaction

    FQCR and code it under the posting area 0120 which is write-off or create a new posting area. What did you think on I coding it under existing posting area is better than creating a new posting area?
