1. Overview & Business Case

I encountered several business scenarios regarding sales commission where the client used a fully customized solution without utilizing SAP Standard Sales Commission using Condition Contract Management, and its extended functionalities. I would like to share one of the business scenarios and how it can be actualized in the system. 

The Commission Policy goes as follows:

  • Business volume selection criteria can be based on (Country of origin, Commission Group, Material, Material Type, Material Group, Country)
  • The commission is based on the Billing Documents that have been paid (cleared).
  • Example of commission policy: If country of origin is (Spain), Commission Group is (Red) and the Selling Price of the Product after discount is between (100:150) $, then commission rate is (2$).
  • Commission Rate can be Value (Commission=Rate * Quantity) or Percentage (Commission= Rate % * Net value of Billing Documents excluding taxes).
  • There is a minimum limit for each employee.
  • The settlement is done quarterly (The sales employee takes only a 75% of his/her deserved commission) and yearly (If the sales employee achieves his/her yearly target then they take the remaining percentage (25%) of their deserved commission)

2. System Used

S/4 Hana on Premise Demo Server, Release 2021.

3. Perquisites

Understanding of how S4Hana Settlement Management works and its required set up is a plus, as SAP Sales Commission Configuration Steps are quite similar to Sales Rebate.

If you want to know more about the delivered configuration and process description, you can check the below SAP Note which provides an excellent guide.

4.1.  Condition Contract Pricing

4.1.1 Change Field Catalog

 

Transaction  SPRO
Path  Logistics – General>Settlement Management >Basic Settings>Pricing >Sales   (SD) >Define Condition Tables > Change Field Catalog
  • Since the field (HERKL, Country of Origin) is not available in the list, we need to add it to the field catalog first before using it in the condition table.

Change%20Field%20Catalog

4.1.2 Create Condition Tables

  • Condition Table(971) has a combination of Condition Contract Number, Country of Origin for the material and Commission Group.
  • Condition Table(973) has a combination of Condition Contract and Volume Rebate Group( this field will be used to represent Settlement Dates, e.g., Partial Settlement Date).

4.1.4  Create Condition Type

 

Transaction  SPRO
Path  Logistics – General>Settlement Management >Basic Settings>Pricing >Sales   (SD) >Define Conditions Type> Set Pricing Condition Types

 

  • Condition Type( ZRC1) is a copy of standard condition type( RCS1) but the group condition field is deselected and group condition routine is removed, the reason for doing this is that one of the requirements is to calculate the selling price after discount for each material, please bear in mind that this selling price might differ in every billing document considered relevant for the condition contract, this means that every item in these billing documents needs to be considered separately and not as a group.
  • In addition to that, we need to use a custom scale routine( 901), the routine calculates the selling price of the material.Selling Price of the Material = Net Value(Condition Value of ZCBV) / Quantity of the line item.

 

Condition%20Type%3A%20ZCJ1-%20Commission%20Weight

Condition Type: ZRC1- Commission

Cont.%20Condition%20Type%3A%20ZRC1-Commission

Cont. Condition Type: ZRC1-Commission

 

  • Condition Type( ZCJ1) is a copy of standard condition type( RCJ1) but a Scale Routine is assigned to it, to make the scale base value read the amount stored in( Subtotal 7, KOMP-BONB), this Routine is a copy of Standard SAP Routine ( 2, CCS Total BusVolume) with just replacing KZWI5 with BONB.
  • This condition type represents the 25% discount that will be deducted from the deserved commission that the sales employee should receive quarterly until the final settlement is done.

 

Condition%20Type%3A%20ZCJ1-%20Commission%20Weight

Condition Type: ZCJ1- Commission Weight

Cont.%20Condition%20Type%3A%20ZCJ1-%20Commission%20Weight

Cont. Condition Type: ZCJ1- Commission Weight

 

  • Condition Type( ZCJ0) is a copy of condition type( ZCJ1).
    This condition type represents the minimum limit that the sales employee should achieve, otherwise he will not receive any commission.
  • Condition Types( ZCBV, ZRC2) are copies of standard condition types( RCBV, RCS2) respectively, there are no changes done to these standard condition types.

 

4.1.5 Specify CC-Relevance for Condition Types

 

Transaction  SPRO
Path  Logistics – General>Settlement Management >Condition Contract Management>Condition Contract Conditions > Sales> Specify CC-Relevance and Copy Control for Condition Types
  • Since we have taken copies from Standard Condition Types, the the CC relevance is already maintained.

4.1.6 Define Pricing Procedures 

 

Transaction  SPRO
Path  Logistics – General>Settlement Management >Basic Settings>Pricing >Sales   (SD) >Define Pricing Procedures
  • Pricing Procedure(ZA1012) is copy of standard Pricing Procedure(A10012) with replacing the standard condition types with their respective copy.
  • Note that we need to assign “Subtotal 7” to the Condition Type( ZCBV) in the commission pricing procedure.

4.1.9 Specify Settings for Transfer Manger

 

Transaction  SPRO
Path Logistics – General – Settlement Management – Settlement
Documents – Specify Settings for Transfer Manager
  • In Transfer Event (22), we create a new Transfer Rule (3) to transfer the value in the field Settlement Date Type( KOMLFK – SETTL_DATE_TYPE) to the field Volume Rebate Group( KOMP-BONUS).
  • This will guarantee that the condition record maintained for Condition Type(ZCJ1) and Condition Table (973) is picked up correctly.
  • We are doing this to make sure that the 25% discount will always be applicable in case of partial settlement.

  • Since the commission is based on the billing documents that have been cleared, we will use a copy of standard condition contract type( 0CS4- Commission External: Bill Doc Paid,2step).
  • The contract type is two steps as we want to Park the settlement documents first and then do a collective run into a single document and release it to accounting.
  • Assign your newly created Condition Type Group to the Condition Contract Type.

  • Under Split Criteria for Settlement: Make sure that the Usage Control for the following fields( LFTYPV – Document Category of Source Document, VBELN – Billing Document, POSNR – Billing Item) is Always Used – Not Set Via Process Variant.
  • This way we will have a settlement split at the item level for every Billing Document and its Line Items, this makes it possible to calculate the Selling Price for every item, using the special scale routine assigned to pricing condition type( ZRC1- Commission).BV%20Profile%20-%20Split%20Criteria
  • Under Additional Business Volume Tables: With the help of an ABAP consultant, create a copy of the standard CDS View(VWB2_VBRKVBRP_9), add an Inner Join with MARC-HERKLE to add the country of origin to this view.BV%20Profile%20-%20Additional%20Tables%201
  • BV%20Profile%20-%20Additional%20Tables%203
