partial payment advice to accounts by procurement team.

Dear Experts,

Please help me with the following scenario.

I will explain with an eg. of purchase of 1 inventory tool.

Amount in PO = Qty 1 * Rs. 100000 = Rs. 100000

The payment condition is

Goods Received in stores 50 % payment

Goods assembled 30 % payment

Assembled goods inspected 20 % payment

Vendor issues goods and GRN is done. Then vendor bill of Rs. 100000 is forwarded to accounts.

My question is how accounts can control the payment in the specified manner? Only purchase person knows the completion of activities.

Or how purchase person can intimate the accounts upon completion of different milestones?

This can be done outside SAP, but then the control will not be there because Accounts can release payment full, saying that the description of payment advice was not clearly mentioned in PO print, or missing of manual documents can happen.

Expecting the best business practice on the above matter.

    I believe SAP MM standard does not have a milestone billing for "vendor" payments based on these payment conditions driven by goods status such as received, assembled and inspected.

    If you still want to leverage on SAP, you may explore the following (any or multiple options):

    1. MM partial or periodic invoicing plan

    2. explore Project Systems functionality if it has an event AP billing triggered as per goods status event (i.e. assembed or inspected).
