Deviation from Commitment Limit

Good evening,

Working hard as usual. Those cows won't milk themselves 🤪

I have a question regarding the Deviation from Commitment Limit alert. I have a customer with:

  • A Credit Limit of 10,053
  • A Commitment Limit of 10,053
  • A balance of 10,641.87
  • No Deliveries balance
  • No Orders balance

The customer is popping up on the Deviation from Commitment Limit alert. This is fine, but there are some other figures I cannot explain. The Alert detail reads:

BP Code: A001 Account Balance 10,641.87, Payable Limit 3,535.95, Maximum Deviation 7,105.92

Can you explain where the Payable Limit and Maximum Deviation figures come from?

All the best

Bob

    Hi Bob,

    Better check with query (that triggers the alert) and same time,

    please refer SAP notes:

    898665 - Credit limit and Commitment limit

    Thanks & Regards,

    Hi Bob,

    For this system alert, it always looks your BP profile to find the number. Check what payment term and/or dunning term has been setup for this customer.

    The formula should be Payable Limit = Account Balance - Maximum Deviation

    Whenever the customer's Account Balance is over the Commitment Limit, the alert will be triggered. Those 2 other amounts may only be meaningful for certain accounting staff, it will make no difference for other users.

    Thanks,

    Gordon

    Hi Bob,

    The deviation amount for commitment limit is calculated as follows:

    Balance + Undeposited checks (Post dated checks received) + Current Document amount - Commitment Limit amount.

    Hope this will help.

    Regards,

    Nick
