Can Business Partner for an existing Treasury Instrument be changed ?

Hi Experts,

We have a requirement wherein we need to change the business partner of an existing treasury instrument. Lessor (Business Partner) has sold the obligation to a different party and now we want to use this different party (Business Partner) in our existing Treasury Instrument.

Is there any way / workaround for us to achieve this without closing out the original instrument and creating a new instrument with new Business Partner. We want to use the existing Instrument with new Business Partner in it. Please advise. Thanks!

Regards,

Ajay

    Hello Ajay,

    I am not aware of a way to change the Business Partner in an existing treasury instrument. This was asked before in the thread below and no answer was given to state how this could done for a Treasury transaction.

    http://scn.sap.com/thread/1462621

    We had a situation where a business partner went under and our existing treasury transaction had a new business partner. In that case, we simply changed the Business Partner name and information. Is this a Business Partner that is still valid for you in other transactions or one that you have past transactions for that you need to keep the name intact?

    Good luck,

    Lisa

      Thanks Lisa,

      We cannot change Business Partner Master Data since the same BP is used in other instruments as well. We need to figure out alternate method for this if you can suggest any.

      Regards,

    Hi there

    In an existing transaction the business partner cannot be changed. The transaction has to be reversed or ended if possible and entered with the new business partner. The reason is security.

      Hi

      There are two major reasons. One is that if the business partner is not a house bank you have payments involved with standing instructions and this might lead to wrong postings and payments. Second if you use the Credit Risk Analyzer the line usage would be wrong because with the reversal of the transaction the line usage is also reversed.

    Hi,

    Create a new business partner with the relevant details. Do Corporate Action (FWKB) from the old business partner to the new business partner. This way you will be able to keep a track of all the transactions against the specified security id.

    Warm regards,

    Hello Ajay,

    We had the same requirement (change BP on existing transactions) and we wrote a custom program to achieve that.
