FSCM Partial payment

Hi All,

We are implementing FSCM Credit management. Client has a specific requirement for partial payments and depending on this, we would also implement Collections or Dispute management.

The requirement is to make patial payments for customers. This partial payment can be made by the company or the customer makes partial payment, either ways. That means customer pays to the customer a partial amount. Now, my question is where is the option or execute button to do the partial payment, in collectons or dispute management?

I know what collections and dispute mgt is but activating either one is based on fulfilling this requirement.

I searched the img path and help.sap but could nt find anything relevant. Please let me know how this works.

Regards,

Satya

    Hi ,

    Kindly note that as per the requirement whether it is collection or dispute management , partial payments are carried out in FI in the usual manner but in case of dispute while create a partial payment itself u have an option to create a dispute case for this BTE regarding the dispute has to be triggerred .

    regarding collection management the open items or partial payment created is transffered to colletion management , hence partial payment will not be created in collection or dispute .

      What Mark said above is true, however just keep in mind, this will be true for ALL of your Dispute cases, only if you are NOT using Residual payment functionality.

      If you are, then Dispute cases will be created only for the open amount, incase of residual items, and not for the entire Invoice amount, hence partial payment will not be reflected in those cases.

    Am I reading it correct, you want to evaluate using FSCM - DM & CM just based on whether it can support Partial payments or not?

    I would suggest your client to undergo the FSCM Business processes training conducted by SAP and then accordingly decide. If not, bring in someone (an expert) to explain the benefits of the FSCM modules before taking a call.

    W.r.t. question for partial payments, as answered above, its strictly a FI-AR functionality. Since AR and FSCM are tightly integrated, you will get the partial payment information reflected in both Disputes and Collections appropriately.
