What’s New in SAP Business ByDesign: Payment Tolerance for Incoming Payments

In this blog, we’d like to introduce you to one of the things that is new or has changed in the May 2015 version of SAP Business ByDesign.

Of course, you can find more information in the What’s New in SAP Business ByDesign documentation, which is available online or as a pdf.

Today, we’re going to talk about Payment Tolerance for Incoming Payments

You can now set a tolerance amount to clear the incoming payments with higher payment amounts. This can be set up in the business configuration, along with a payment difference reason code.

To set up the tolerance for overpayment, maintain values for Absolute Amount for each Transaction under Tolerance for Over Payment.

To define the default payment difference reason code for automatic overpayment clearing, go to Business Configuration > Reasons for Payment Differences. Select a country, and then select 5-Under-and-Overpayment. Then select a difference reason code, and mark it a Default Over Payment Clearing.

  • Hi Yuthika,

    I have assigned some payment reasons including Taxes (Payment Reason) to 5-Over and Under Payment.

    All the reason code shows up for Invoice.

    But for Down Payment, I can only see Currency Exchange Difference  Reason code.

    Best Regards
