Sales & Distribution: Rebate Management Replaced by Condition Contract Settlement


  • There are redundant object models in the ERP system. Here, the rebate agreements are used. The (mandatory) target approach in SAP S/4HANA is the condition contract settlement approach followed by Settlement Management.
  • Condition contract settlement is capable of centrally managing master and settlement-related data for all kinds of subsequent settlement-related business processes. In the context of current development, the condition contract settlement application is the single point of entry to create, edit, and settle the conditions according to the contractual terms and conditions.

Business Impact

  • SAP Business Suite customers can move from various releases to SAP S/4 HANA, on-premise edition and still process the existing rebate agreements. It is not possible to create or extend existing rebate agreements.
  • The user interface for SAP S/4HANA, on-premise edition 1511 is transaction WCOCO. The specific transaction codes to create SD Rebate Agreements, which users may be familiar with from SAP Business Suite, are not available in SAP S/4HANA.
  • Condition contract settlement offers additional functions and features that allow you to modernize the implementation of your existing business processes and define additional business process variants.

Recommended Action

  • Condition contract settlement is also available in the SAP Business Suite. Therefore we recommend that you use condition contract settlement if you are planning to create new rebate agreements before you upgrade to SAP S/4 HANA.
  • Customize the conditions contract settlement application to implement your rebate processes based on standard content.

  • Hi Frank,

    Thanks for sharing your inputs.
    As per the notes - 2226380

    "In general, the functionality SD Rebate Processing is not supported in SAP S/4HANA. The successor of SD Rebate Processing is Settlement Management.
    However, there is one exception. CRM TPM customers can still use SD Rebate Processing for their business process. For those customers, this note does not apply. "

    In this case, When SAP CRM TPM is used how will S/4 reacts ?
    Can we use the SD Rebate processing and continue the process or should we still use "condition contract settlement" kindly share some lights..
