    The configuration steps for risk management

    How To Do Configuration For Credit Management

    Credit and risk management takes place in the credit control area. According to your corporate requirements, you can implement credit management that is centralized, decentralized, or somewhere in between.

    An organizational unit that represents the area where customer credit is awarded and monitored. This organizational unit can either be a single or several company codes, if credit control is performed across several company codes. One credit control area contains credit control information for each customer.

    For example, if your credit management is centralized, you can define one credit control area for all of your company codes.

    If, on the other hand, your credit policy requires decentralized credit management, you can define credit control areas for each company code or each group of company codes.

    Credit limits and credit exposure are managed at both credit control area and customer level. You set up credit control areas and other data related to credit management in Customizing for Financial Accounting. The implementation guide is under Enterprise Structure -> Definition or Assignment -> Financial Accounting and then Maintain credit control area. You assign customers to specific credit control areas and specify the appropriate credit limits in the customer master record.

    Settings for determining the credit control area of a document. The settings of items 1 - 4 are taken into account according to their priority. The credit control area found is stored in field VBAK-KKBER.

    14. Transaction V/08, Pricing

    In the pricing procedure used for pricing, subtotal "A" must be entered in a line for determining the credit value (mark the pricing procedure and doubleclick on "Control").

    Usually, the net value plus taxes is used. This way the system is determined to use this subtotal for credit pricing. The credit price is stored in field VBAP-CMPRE and used for update and credit check.

    You can find the used pricing procedure of the order under "Item -> Condition -> Analysis".

    Pricing procedure:

    Line with subtotal = 'A':

    15. Transaction OB45

    Tr.Code - FD32

    It Considers the Doc.Value + Open Items.

    Doc.Value: Sales Order has been saved but not delivered

    Open Item: Sales Order has been saved, Delivered, Billed & Transferred to FI, but not received the payment from the customer.

    Eg: Customer Credit Limit is Rs.1, 00,000/-

    Suppose Doc.Value + Open Item Value is Rs.1,10,000/-

    Here credit limit exceeds then system reacts.

    Options: A) Warning Message

    B) Error Message (Sales Order won't be saved)

    C) Error Message with Delivery Block

    AUTOMATIC CREDIT CHECK: Give extra credit facilities to the particular customer.

    STATIC CREDIT LIMIT DETERMINATION: Checking Group + Risk Category + Credit Control Area.

    A) Credit Checking Groups: Types of Checking Groups.

    01) Sales

    02) Deliveries

    03) Goods Issue

    At all the above 3 levels orders can be blocked.

    B) Risk Category: Based on the risk Categories Company decides how much credit has to give to the customer.




    Static Credit Check it checks all these doc value & check with the credit limit

    1) Open Doc.Value / Sales Order Value: Which is save but not delivered

    2) Open Delivery Doc.Value: Which is delivered but not billed

    3) Open Billing Doc.Value: Which is billed but not posted to FI

    4) Open Item: Which is transferred to FI but not received from the customer.


    1) Open Doc

    2) Open Delivery

    3) Open Billing

    4) Open Items

    5) Horizon Period = Eg.3Months

    Here the System will not consider the above 1,2,3& 4 values for the last 3 months

    Then assign the Sales Doc & Del Documents.

    Sales Doc.Type(OR) + credit Check (0) + Credit Group (01)

    Credit Limit Check for Delivery Type : Del.Type (LF) + Del Credit

    Group (02) + Goods Issue Credit Group (03)

    User Exits For Credit Checks And Risk Management

    Credit Check

    I hope this will resolve your issue
