Monitoring Credit Limits

The system calculates the following data for every customer in a credit control area and displays it:

When you post a customer invoice, the system automatically adds the amount to the existing receivables or to the receivables from special G/L transactions, depending on the posting key involved. When the customer incoming payment is posted, the appropriate amount is subtracted from the existing receivables.

You can view a customer's credit limit by choosing Master records ® Credit limit ® Display from the Accounts Receivable menu.

On the overview screen, the individual credit limit, the existing total liabilities, and the credit exhaustion percentage are displayed.

If you have marked in the master record of the customer that his payment history should be recorded or made other internal specifications, this data is also displayed.
