Decoupling PGI and Billing Dates

Hi All,

Can anyone tell me how can we have different PGI and Billing Dates in a sales cycle. The scenario is that the shipment is created but the goods reach the user after a few days and the revenue recognition should happen at that time. However in SAP the PGI dates becomes the billing date as a batchjob runs daily to create invoices so the day PGI happens billing doc gets created. So is there any way in which after goods reach the customer billing document is created and not on PGI date?

Thank you,

Regards,

Shanu Jain

    Hi,

    yes. if u activate POD (proof of delivery) in customer master record,shipping tab and active at item category level path(SD- logistics execution-shipping- del POD-activate TAN).

    AFTER THIS IF U RAISE A SALES ORDER THEN DELIVERY,DO PGI

    U NEED TO USE T CODE -- VLPOD to conform the received quantity of customer. without this u can't create a billing document.

    hope i have solved ur query.

      Thank you Nagesh. It is a good option to look at. Besides POD is there any other way of doing it?

    Hello Shanu,

    Why cant you use a normal billing block here. So that the invoice is not created when the batch job runs.

      I think the simple question he is asking is :

      can we replace the PGI date which is the default posting date in billing with some other date.

      If you are looking for a manual way, then most know that we can do that in the Header level in VF01 by changing the Billing Date, but if you are looking to achieve it in back ground job, then some one from the forum should suggest.

      Happy SAPing

    how can we have different PGI and Billing Dates in a sales cycle

    The simple and straight solution is that you execute VL06 where you maintain billing date and schedule the job in background by defining a print date there.

    Hi Shanu,

    Activate the POD functionality by activating it at Delivery item category and Ship to party.

    In Copy control you can assign the copying routing which will propose billing date as todays date.

    Hope this will help you.

    Cheers,
