    Hello,

    In processing the Rebates the amount that you owe till today to the customer is accrued, this is called the accrual.

    now about the reverse accural, say for example you are gone settled the rebates yearly, but in the month of june ( accrual was $ 60 YTD), an accrual was done but no settlement because you do the settlement only on december 31st.

    now in septmeber user decides to do the accrual again which is gone be YTD $ 90, this will reverse the accrual from june $ 60 and accrue again for $ 90.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards

    Hi

    Just check the below link and read it. I can bet no one else can explain you about rebates more than this.This document is self explanatory and the most comprehensive one with necessary screen shots.

    http://www.erpgenie.com/publications/saptips/052005.pdf

    comming to your question about accrual.

    If you take a normal discount customer will be paid the discount amount straight away at the point of invoicing.

    But rebate is a special type of discount which is paid to the customer retroactively usually at the end of agreement period.

    So when an invoice is created based on the value of the invoice (or the quantity of the goods sold ) a part of the amount will be accrued. This accrued amount will not be paid usually at the point of invoicing. This amount will be accrued in the accrual related G/L account for the customer for the rebate condition type. This amount can be partially settled at intervels of time or at the point of final settlement.

    Comming to reverse accruals; when you do a partial settlement or a complete/ final settlement the amount which is accrued in the accrual related G/L account has to be reversed by that amount. This happens if the check box is checked at the agreement level.

    Hope this explains. Let me know if you have any questions.

      1. The button for verification level is like a report as you correctly guessed. It gives a report for which invoice how much was accrued or provisioned.

      2. Condition base value is also the rebate basis in the invoice. This is the value on which the rebate will be calculated. Let us say you have a % age based rebate where you give a 10% rebate on the invoice value of a certain material. Then if we consider that you have a sale of 100 USD, then condition base value in this case or rebate basis is 100 USD. Condition value is the 10% of 100 USD which is 10 USD.

      Hope this helps.

      Thanks

    Hi

    Key which identifies various types of G/L accounts for accruals or provisions.

    With the aid of the account key, the system can post amounts to certain types of accruals accounts. For example, rebate accruals which are calculated from pricing conditions can be posted to the corresponding account for rebate accruals.

    I think for reversal accural also for rebate ERU can use. Please check once again and confirm.

    Hi Friends,

    We have rebate issue where there is balance in the rebate accrual account at the end of the year and we want to clear it.

    The root cause of the issue is because of Sales Returns, when we create return orders, the Customer Account is getting DR. and Rebate Accrual Account CR. again and that value remains.

    What is the normal process for Sales Returns with rebates and how does the Rebate Accrual Account cleared ?

    Thanks
