Logistics Invoice Verification: Differences

Description

In Logistics Invoice Verification, you can tell the system how to react for each vendor when a debit/credit difference occurs when an invoice is posted. The system can react as follows:

The system automatically creates a posting line and posts the difference to a neutral income or expense account.
The systen automatically creates a posting line and posts the difference to a clearing account for invoice reductions. The system also creates a second document that clears the clearing account and creates an offsetting entry on the vendor account. This means that the payment run in Financial Accounting only pays the vendor the amount of the invoice minus the difference.

Tolerance groups are created for each company code in Customizing. Limits for accepting or reducing an invoice are defined for each tolerance group.

Each vendor can be assigned to a tolerance group.

If a vendor is not assigned to a tolerance group or if no limits have been entered for a tolerance group to which a vendor is assigned, the system only creates a difference line if the difference is smaller than the tolerance defined for small differences.
