India SAP CoE, Slide 9 Billing Process Overview. The whole billing process comprises three major steps Input Processing
India SAP CoE, Slide 10 Billing Process
India SAP CoE, Slide 11 Billing Execution
India SAP CoE, Slide 12 Output Processing
India SAP CoE, Slide 13 Billing Options: Billing Plans
India SAP CoE, Slide 14 Billing Process Overview The process flow for creating and issuing invoices using the CRM Billing can be divided into four sub-processes: –Input Processing – Billing – Cancellation – Output Processing During Input Processing, CRM Billing takes over billing-relevant items from different business transactions and saves them as billing due list items. As of CRM Release 5.0, you can use an external interface to copy data from non- SAP systems to the CRM Billing due list. It supports the formats IDoc; XML SOAP via HTTP; XML via SAP NetWeaver Exchange Infrastructure. From the billing due list, you can process both single and collective billing from billing due list items and also trigger these to run in the background. During billing, related billing due list items are also grouped together as far as possible from different CRM business transactions and transferred to a joint billing document. You can cancel individual billing documents and also execute collective cancellations. The system transfers information on cancellations automatically to Financial Accounting. Output processing is made up of invoice output, the transfer to SAP Financial Accounting and retrieval for SAP BW. You can choose from different output media (for example, print, fax or ) for invoice output, although output takes place using SAP Smart Forms. The ledger posting of billing data takes place either in SAP FI-A/R or in SAP FI-CA. CRM Billing provides all relevant billing data for the SAP Business Warehouse for statistical reporting.
India SAP CoE, Slide 15 CRM Billing Imp Concepts Billing Unit The billing unit is the organization in a company that handles the billing processes for the business partners involved in the sale. Its tasks include, among others, receiving and handling complaints. In the invoicing process it is used, among other things, to select billing request items and it effectively determines grouping in invoicing. In Intercompany Billing scenario also it plays important role. Convergent billing: Convergent billing is the integration of all service charges onto a single customer invoice e.g. Many Service confirmations billed together.
India SAP CoE, Slide 16 CRM Billing Imp Concepts :Billing Relevance The billing relevance defined at item level in the business transaction drives the billing process. –It controls: When billing data is transferred to the billing due list (for example, after saving or in the case of a specific status) Whether the transaction or the delivery triggers billing Where billing takes place: either within CRM or R/3 SD –In transaction-related billing, the business transaction provides all data necessary for billing Selection of billing due items via transaction number Used, for example, for service orders and contracts –In delivery-related billing, a combination of delivery and transaction data feed the billing process Selection of billing due items via delivery number Used, for example, for sales orders
India SAP CoE, Slide 17 CRM Billing - Master Data & Services CRM Billing uses existing master data entities for: –Business partners –Prices/conditions –Organisational units –Products Services used by CRM Billing are: –Partner Processing –Pricing –Text Processing –Action Processing: Printing and other output actions by using the Post Processing Framework (PPF) –Transfer to accounting (FI-A/R and FI-CA) –BW adapter
India SAP CoE, Slide 18 CRM Billing – Pre-Requisites General : Number Range, Master Data, Pricing Procedure, Tax configuration, Middleware, G/L setting, No Billing Block, Billing Type, Billing Relevance Item Category and Copy Control etc. should have been maintained For CRM Billing : For Service Items the status should be confirmed, For Billing Plan the due date must be due For Delivery related CRM Billing,PGI should have been done and the relevant status must be updated in CRM For Delivery related R3 Billing for CRM Orders: Order should pass correctly from CRM to R3 PGI should have been done.
India SAP CoE, Slide 19 Key Billing Functionality available in CRM7.0 –Transaction-related and delivery-related billing –Complete integration with preceding processes (business transactions and deliveries) –Complete integration with SAP Financials –Provision for SAP Business Intelligence –Billing of Complaints (Credit / Debit memos) –Cancellation –Direct billing –Milestone billing and Periodic Billing Plan –Intercompany processing –Supplementary invoices –Invoice split –Differential invoicing –Support of foreign trade processes (e.g. GTS, Extrastat, Intrastat Reports) –External interface for billing due list –Individual configuration of billing application
India SAP CoE, Slide 20 SAP R/3 SAP CRM Example: Delivery-Related CRM Billing Flow 7 6 Goods Issue 5 4 Sales order 2 CRM Billing Billing due list 2a 9 Sales order Product Quantity Book 12 pc. 1 Invoice 8 Delivery 3
India SAP CoE, Slide 21 Example: Service Process CRM Billing Flow Prerequisites: The service process has the status Released. You have made the settings necessary for copying control and have entered the date type SRVC_ACTUAL (start of work/end of work) in the date profile.
India SAP CoE, Slide 22 CRM Billing Confirmation without Service Process Order : Example: A customer asks a service employee, who is on site due to another order, to perform a repair. Because the device failed only an hour ago and therefore, the customer has not yet reported the problem, there is no existing service process from which the confirmation can occur. In this case, the service employee can perform the repair and subsequently create a confirmation. In this way, the working time and spare parts required for the repair can be invoiced to the customer.
India SAP CoE, Slide 23 Amount Allocation to CO for Service Order
India SAP CoE, Slide 24 SAP CRM Example: Service Plan Billing Flow CRM Billing Billing due list 2 Service order Service Quantity Support 100 hr/pm On Billing Due Date 1 Invoice 8 CRM Billing Billing due list 2
India SAP CoE, Slide 25 Billing Plan – Example: Periodic Billing You can see the billing plan in a business transaction on the billing plan tab page. –The system creates billing due list entries for every billing request item from the billing plan. –Once the billing date of a billing request item (BRI) is reached, the system creates a billing document. Service Contract Sold-to party: Miller Inc. Billing plan: Periodic billing Billing request items (BRI): 31. Jan USD 28. Feb USD 31. Mar USD Validity period: Jan. - March Billing date: End of month Billing Due List Entries Invoice 1 Miller Inc. 31. Jan USD Invoice 2 Miller Inc. 28. Feb USD Invoice 3 Miller Inc. 31. Mar USD
India SAP CoE, Slide 26 A billing plan is a schedule of individual billing dates for a product or a service. –Periodic billing: Bills the same amount at regular intervals Can be used, for example, for maintenance or leasing contracts –Milestone billing: Bills different amounts on predefined dates Can be used for items in high-value projects or long-term projects (for example, plant engineering and construction) Billing Plan- Periodic & Milestone Billing 1st milestone1. April 20% USD 2nd milestone 31. Mai 40%4.000 USD Final invoice30. June 40%4.000 USD 31. Jan USD 28. Feb USD 31. Mar USD
India SAP CoE, Slide 27 Supplementary Invoice –The system creates an additional entry in the billing due list, if a partner with the partner function “bill-to party (supplementary invoice)” exists in the original transaction. This scenario is useful for example when one may be required to send a copy of invoice to Group company – another Bill to Party showing only Product Price without Freight, Tax and other charges-with NO Posting to FI being done. –The system carries out a partner determination for the copied item. –The system carries out pricing for the copied item. –Only the customer invoice is provided to Financial accounting for further processing Invoice 1 Miller Inc USD Invoice 2 SLC Inc USD Financial accounting Service order Bill-to party: Miller Inc. Bill-to party supplementary invoice: SLC Inc.
India SAP CoE, Slide 28 –The invoice split is triggered by the condition type and by a flag in the business partner master data (payer). –The system then creates an additional entry in the billing due list. –The invoices are handled separately in all following processes. Invoice Split Using Conditions You can split the net value of an item into two invoices. Invoice 1 Price 100 USD Invoice 2 Freight 20 USD Financial accounting Order Price: 100 USD Freight:20 USD
India SAP CoE, Slide 29 Differential Invoicing Complaint Product 1 8 pc 800 USD Invoice 1 (Original Invc) Product 1 10 pc 1000 USD Differential Invoice Product 1 8 pc 800 USD Product 1 10 pc USD -200 USD Differential invoicing allows invoice corrections to be generated from complaints. A value or quantity change in a complaint can trigger the creation of a correction document. Shortage Complaint Quantity 8 Received Original Invoice Quantity Credited back in Full Received Quantity is Charged
India SAP CoE, Slide 30 Direct Billing Via direct billing, a billing document can be created directly, without the intermediate step of initiating billing via the billing due list: –Direct billing is triggered by a flag in the business partner master data (payer) –Incomplete or blocked due list items are excluded from direct billing –If an error during billing occurs, the item can be found in the billing due list –You can also use a Business Add-In (BAdI) to trigger direct billing
India SAP CoE, Slide 31 Intercompany Billing Flow Sales org. Germany Company Germany Delivery plant New York Company US Customer Order Customer invoice Intercompany invoice Delivery Intercompany billing: A process for internal invoicing in the case that the sales organization and the delivering organization of an enterprise belong to independent accounting units. This happens mostly in delivery related billing, but can happen in service related billing also where actual service is rendered by sister company for Service Order created by sister company.
India SAP CoE, Slide 32 Information on Intercompany Billing Use You use intercompany billing if both of the following apply: 1.A product/ service is delivered by a unit other than the seller. 2.The seller and supplier of a product are in the same enterprise group, but in different Company Codes –Intercompany billing enables the supplier to bill the seller in the above scenario. –The system automatically recognizes a case of intercompany billing when a supplier is entered in the order that has a different company code from the seller.
India SAP CoE, Slide 33 Intercompany Processing – Characteristics –System automatically determines whether vendor belongs to different billing organization than sales organization –Supports transaction and delivery-related intercompany processing –Creates two or several billing due list items: one for customer invoice and one or more for intercompany invoice(s) –Within direct delivery billing, integration with controlling provides determination for the profit center of the delivering party, and booking of cost of goods issued and revenue to new accounts. –During the creation of a billing due list entry for an intercompany invoice, prices and partners are redetermined.
India SAP CoE, Slide 34 Multi-Level Intercompany Billing Multi-level intercompany billing: For a given intercompany-relevant transaction, a chain of intercompany billing documents is derived to allow a general multi-level intercompany process. Sales org. Germany Company Germany Delivery plant New York Company US Intercompany invoice 2 Customer Order Customer invoice Delivery Company holding Paris Intercompany invoice 1
India SAP CoE, Slide 35 Cancellation of Billing Documents Cancellation document Billing due list entries Financial accounting Billing document Status: canceled In order to reverse the billing process you can cancel billing documents. The system does the following: Changes the billing document (status: canceled) Generates cancellation document (to reverse postings in FI) Creates new entries in billing due list
India SAP CoE, Slide 36 External Due List Interface –The external due list interface is a XIF interface for the billing due list. –The interface can be used to transfer external data to the CRM billing due list (for example, transfer of items to be billed from an external order entry or delivery system).
