Automatic Clearing of Down payment at the time of creating Invoice

Dear All,

I have created a Service Purchase order. This is assigned to a WBS element.Then i created a vendor downpayment request against this order using F-47 then posted same from F-48. Then i created service entry sheet and accepted it.Now when i am creating a invoice in MIRO for this Service order, system gives an information message that Downpayment exists. But invoice amount is not reduced by the amount. Also downpayment is not reversed automatically. Is there any way to achieve this? I had to manually Clear downpayment after invoice is posted.I want that to happen automatically.

Regards,

Kamal

    Hi,

    The information message you receive in MIRO is the only possible thing in standard. Automatic adjustments cannot happen so far I know. You need to manually clear the down payment.

    As of ECC6 EHP4 you can clear down payment at the time of invoice verification(MIRO) itself for this you need to activate LOG_MMFI_P2P business function.

      Hi Rafi,

      Thanks for this information. We are running on ECC 6.0 / EHP4 & also the biz funtion activated. .

      As of now, we are receiving just an info msg at the time of MIRO.

      Is mere activation of this biz funtion enough or do MM & FI need to configure something to achieve automatic downpayment clearing?

      regards

    Hi Rafi,

    Thanks for the information. I did it and it worked.

    @ krisap,

    After activating this function a new tab called Payment Processing becomes available in Purchase Order. When you define Downpayment there then you will be able to get that button in MIRO automatically.

      Hi,

      Ok. I am also getting the same tab already. I should explore this. By the way, earlier I received error messages from availability control when we were trying to make the down payment as "Mandatory" in PO change mode. We could not analyze this & stopped the process there itself & continued with FI route for downpayments.

      regards

    Hi krisap,

    I am able to run entire down payment scenario. If you need any help let me know.

    As far as Retention is concerned i am too stuck at last stage. I am able to deduct retention amount (in MIRO) and same is visible under PO History tab against invoice line item. But when vendor claims retention and he is paid then it is not visible under Posted retention column against invoice.

    Regards,

    Kamal
