    Hi Kapil....

    Please check this....

    Factoring Indicator:
    If required, assign a factoring indicator (both code and name) for the business partner. 
    The indicator is automatically inserted as the default value in invoices and can be displayed 
    in the account statements.

    In Short this is used for more specific Financial Reports.......

    • Hi,

      Check the following extract from the Note No. : 593657 which explains your question:

      What is the Factoring Indicator?
      The factoring indicator is a key that can be recorded in journal entries and used as a selection criterion in the General Ledger Report.
      In Reports -> Financials -> Accounting -> General Ledger, click on the 'Expanded' pushbutton, under Parameters the Indicator (Factoring Indicator) is available.
      The report will only display the journal entries marked with the Indicator set in the key range.
      If a Factoring Indicator has been defined for a business partner (Business Partner Master Data, tab General), this will be entered automatically into each marketing document (tab Accounting) - thus its journal entry - added for the business partner.
      The Indicator can be updated any time in a marketing document.
      The journal entry linked to it will be updated automatically.
      The Indicator is mainly intended for the Austrian localization as Factoring Indicator to mark receivables either sold or to be sold to a third party (factor) for report purposes.

      Kind Regards,
