Write offs in SAP

Hi folks,

Is there any SAP transaction we can use to write off small balances of customers? We have lots of customers and often they short pay, we want to write off automatically small amounts, e..g less than 5 dollars from the line items showing open in FBL5N. Any way we can simplify this? Or even any standard transaction we can modify for the amount but essentially which can write off instead of going through F-28 or something similar individually?

Thanks a ton!

Isn't it easier to do during the cash allocation? For example, via tolerances. There is even a special button "charge off difference" in the clearing transaction.

Hi Darkduck,

Thanks for your reply. Yes, that is one option when doing manually, however, in our case, 95% of the payments come in via the payment file from the bank and the volume is really high (small amounts, large customer base), so whatever we may try, we do land up with single line items of customers with small amounts short paid etc. To revolve that I was thinking of this program via F-13 but open to any better ideas...

F.13 or F13E is also an option if you can figure out correct clearing rules. Then you can use tolerances for writing the differences off.
