    Dear Sai vani,

    About the first question, the due date is the base line date + days; the baseline date is not the due date.

    About the credit memo, please consider the following information:

    "A credit Memo without an Invoice Reference is always due on the

    Baseline Date (the Exceptions to this are Credit Memos which have an

    explicitly-stated Value Date)" > this Logic was introduced starting

    from Release 3.1I. Please see Details in Note 79871 and 84137.


    1. Credit Memo with Invoice Reference have the same Terms of Payment

    and Baseline Date as the Invoice.

    2. For the Credit Memo without Reference to an Invoice, there are 2

    methods available for choosing the due Date :

    a) The Due Date for Net Payment (RFPOS-FAEDT) is identical to the

    Baseline Date for Payment (BSEG-ZFBDT). The Period for Net Term or

    the Term of Payment is not taken into Account. This is the Default.

    b) Or the Credit Memo is due based on the Payment Terms. For this,

    you must enter the Indicator "V" in the Credit Memo Field BSEG-REBZG

    "Invoice Ref", in addition to the specified Payment Method.

    You can modify this Field for the Credit Memos already posted.

    => the above Details are documented in the Help F1 behind the

    "Invoice Ref" Field.

    Manual filling of the Field can take place during the Entry of the

    Credit Memo, or in a Document Change Transaction:

    Run transaction FB02 to call up the Credit Memos. Drill down

    to Customer Line Item. Here, you should be able to see the Field

    "Invoice ref.' (BSEG-REBZG). Place a 'V' in this Field. With this,

    the Credit Memo is due based on the Payment Terms.

    Please consider the note number 17410 as well for Your info.

    I hope this helps You.

    if the credit memo related to a invoice, then due date applicable as per the invoice.

    If this is not related to invoice, payment terms dont apply.

    If you want to apply payment terms to this type of memos, enter V in the Inv.Ref field.
