Create & manage a dispute case in FBL5N for Customer Line Item


This component contains functions for processing receivables-related dispute cases. It supplements the logistics process chain Purchase Order – Delivery – Invoice – Payment in the stage between invoice and payment if there are discrepancies with the customer. In the case of an underpayment, you can create a dispute case in the system. Here you can collect all of the data and information required for processing the case. This is data that already exists in accounting and new data that you enter for a dispute case. You can usually create a dispute case from the transaction where you determine the underpayment. For example,  post processing of an account statement or analysis of overdue open items. When you create the dispute case, the system copies information from the accounting document (for example, disputed amount) into the dispute case automatically.
