From documents in sales and shipping, you can trigger credit checks in SAP Credit Management. The result of the check can influence the status of the document and thereby restrict possible follow-on functions.

When you post documents from sales, shipping, and billing, changes to the commitment are transmitted to SAP Credit Management. In SAP Credit Management, the commitments contribute to the credit exposure of a business partner.

Credit checks take place synchronously, that is, document processing does not continue until the result has been received.

The commitment is updated asynchronously when you post a document and, in contrast to the update from Accounts Receivable Accounting, the update is not bundled by means of worklists.

Prerequisites

You have activated SAP Credit Management using the method SET_ACTIVE of the Business Add-In UKM_R3_ACTIVATE and set the export parameter E_ERP2005. Export parameter E_ERP2005 has the following effects:

For the credit checks, only the credit-relevant master data of SAP Credit Management is used. You can only process this master data in SAP Credit Management.

In the IMG activity Define Automatic Credit Control, you can only process those checks relevant for SAP Credit Management.

The system reaction to the credit check from SAP Credit Management is defined in the IMG activity Define Automatic Credit Control.

In the credit check, you can simulate the update of the commitment.

To recreate the credit exposure, you have to use the recreation reports UKM_RFDKLI20 and UKM_RVKRED77 instead of reports RFDKLI20 and RVKRED77. You have made the SD-relevant Customizing settings for SAP Credit Management.

Features

Using SAP Credit Management, you can control that in the event of a negative credit check, orders or individual items are blocked for further processing (for example, delivery).

A new credit check can also trigger the release of blocked documents. The result of a credit check is returned to the document by means of a status.

Events for Credit Check

Chain Management under Credit Management  Integration with Accounts Receivable Accounting and Sales and Distribution 

Use

Sales and Distribution and Shipping are connected by means of an implementation of the BAdI for SAP Credit Management (BADI_SD_CM). The following sections describe the functions of the example implementation UKM_BADI_IMP1 of this BAdI.

A credit check in SAP Credit Management is called for the following events or business transactions:

Creation of or change to sales order

Depending on the setting in Customizing, the credit check is called after each addition or change to an order item or only when you save the complete order. Depending on Customizing, a negative result can set a credit block in the order that then prevents the order being delivered.

Creation of or change to delivery

Depending on the setting in Customizing, the credit check is called after the entry of every item or only when you save the complete document. Depending on Customizing, a negative result can set a credit block in the delivery document that then prevents a goods issue for the delivery.

Goods issue for delivery

Depending on Customizing, the credit check can also be called before the goods issue. A negative result prevents the goods issue.

List of blocked documents

The credit check can be called again from the list of blocked documents. A positive result deletes any existing credit block.

Integration

For the credit check in SAP Credit Management, the update of the commitment to SAP Credit Management is first simulated. The result of the simulation is the basis for the check.

Activities

You can access the BAdI in Customizing for SAP Credit Management under Integration with Accounts Receivable Accounting and Sales and Distribution Integration with Sales and Distribution Customer Enhancements BAdI: Connection of Sales and Distribution to SAP Credit Management.

Events for Credit Exposure Update

Chain Management under Credit Management  Integration with Accounts Receivable Accounting and Sales and Distribution 

Use

In the following events or business transactions, commitments from Sales and Distribution and Shipping

are transferred to SAP Credit Management:

Post sales order

When you post a sales order a commitment with the credit exposure category Order Value is created and transferred to SAP Credit Management.

Post delivery

When you post a delivery, the commitment of the order delivered is reduced and a commitment with the credit exposure category Delivery Value is created. Both credit exposure changes are transferred to SAP Credit Management. Deliveries without an order reference do not create a commitment; here the credit exposure does not arise until the billing document is transferred to Accounts Receivable Accounting.

Transfer billing document

When you transfer a billing document to Accounts Receivable Accounting, the commitment of the delivery being billed or the order billed is reduced and transferred to SAP Credit Management. In SAP Credit Management, this reduction does not take effect immediately. It takes effect when the commitment of the related open item from Accounts Receivable Accounting is updated. This prevents a credit exposure that is too low being displayed between the postings.

Reverse document

When you reverse an SD document the related commitment is reduced and the commitment of the preceding document is increased.

Reviewing and Releasing Credit Holds

When you post a sales order a commitment with the credit exposure category Order Value is

Use

To ensure quick and effective processing of credit holds, the SAP standard system offers your credit

personnel a working environment that can be tailored to your own needs.

Credit personnel can call and process overview lists of the blocked orders and deliveries. For checking purposes, you can also see released documents.

Output

You get a list of all documents that meet your selected criteria and that you are authorized to process.

You can sort this list by specific criteria and set up the way in which it is displayed.

Activities

In the output list, you can review the credit situation of any customer and, according to credit policy,

decide how to continue processing the sales and distribution documents. You now have the following options:

Grant the credit and release the sales and distribution document

Reject the credit and cancel the sales and distribution document

Forward the blocked sales and distribution document to another processor

Recheck the blocked sales and distribution document

Reassign the blocked sales and distribution document and specify a new sequence of blocked sales and distribution documents. This enables you to give priority to and release several documents with a low document value until their credit limit is completely used up, instead doing so for a single document with a high document value that has already exceeded its credit limit.

After you carry out a particular task (for example, releasing a document), the system displays a processing status in the column to the left of your list.

In the output list, the following functions are possible:

Go to information relevant for credit, for example, credit control data, credit master record

Process the sales and distribution document

Processing Released Sales and Distribution Documents RVKRED03 Logistics  Sales and Distribution  Credit Management 

You can prevent changes from being made to a blocked sales and distribution document until it is released from the credit viewpoint. To do this, maintain message 134 in sales Customizing at Sales Sales and Distribution Documents Define Variable Messages. In the Type field, choose “Error“. In this case, you cannot make changes from the list.

Special Features When Using SAP Credit Management When you use SAP Credit Management (FIN-FSCM-CR), pay attention to the following special features:

The output list additionally displays the status of the credit check from SAP Credit Management (field CMPS_CM).

The fields filled with credit-relevant master data from FI/SD Credit Management are hidden in the output list.

Credit-relevant master data maintained in the connected FSCM system (for example, risk category) is displayed but cannot be changed in the ERP system.

Use

You recreate transaction data for one or more business partners in one or more credit segments if, for

example, the derivation of one or more credit segments has changed (for example, in an implementation of the Business Add-In UKM_FILL), or if transaction data has become inconsistent due to incorrect updates.

You can recreate the data manually, or schedule one-time processing in the background. Integration

The credit exposure transferred is displayed in the master record of the busiiness partner per credit

segment. There you can navigate to the relevant commitments.
