Approval for Payment Reversal

The objective of this blog post is to explain the approval for payment reversal functionality in SAP Business ByDesign.

An approval process is triggered when there is a need to reverse an approved payment. In case such an approved payment is reversed an approval task gets generated. This functionality helps to comply with the dual control mechanism in the system.

 

Setting in Business Configuration > Scope

The approval for payment reversal can be activated and deactivated in the solution scope at any time.


A payment with status “Ready for Transfer” can be reversed in the Payment Monitor view either in the Liquidity Management or Payment Management work center. When the Reverse action is executed the status of the payment changes to “Cancellation in Approval”.

An approval task is generated and can be processed in the Managing My Area work center by the responsible person.

The approval task can be withdrawn for an automatically generated payment which has been reversed.

This short introduction of approval for payment reversal functionality shall help you to start using the new capabilities in SAP Business ByDesign.

      Hello Mr. Shallam,

      sorry, but a customizing for this type of approval is not possible. You can only decide to use it or not.

       

      Best regards!

      Hello Katrin,

      We want to know something related to the payment reversal functionality which we have also scoped. We were actually try to see whether the "Cancellation in Approval" process also work for Manual Payments, but actually it doesn't show Payment Status as such, rather it still shows "Ready for Transfer".

      I also read the help article which this status "Cancellation in Approval" would only appear in Automatic Payments: Automatic Payment Reversal (Payables) - SAP Help Portal

      Is my assumption correct? Pls. correct me if I'm wrong.

      Hoping for your feedback soon. Thanks!

       

      Regards,

      Alain
