Extended Rebate functionality (and its use)

Postby YYZ_SAP » Wed Jan 25, 2012 2:20 pm

I’m currently working at an international customer with operations in Europe. They sell products in almost all countries in Europe, which are being sourced normally from one single plant.

They are using the intercompany billing process.
They are currently using the standard Rebate functionality, including Rebate settlement.

They are facing with an issue with the Rebate settlement process.

They setup the rebate agreement with an element of a material, e.g. the material pricing group, since the product portfolio is too large to use a material in the rebate agreement.

Normally a product is delivered from one source (one single plant), but occasionally the product will be delivered from another plant (in another country)

The issue in the rebate settlement is the proper determination of the tax code and therefore the proper tax percentage. This since the products can be from several source (delivering plant) in several countries.

It is impossible to create all combinations in a rebate agreement, including the delivering plant, since there could be over 30 of them.

We have already thought of the fact to include the material tax classification in the setup of the rebate agreement.

Currently we are looking at the following options
Implement Vistex – a (fairly) expensive proposition
Do nothing – this will mean, that the Finance department will need to use a (custom) BW report to make financial posting and Credit Memo’s
Made enhancements in the current process – this will mean a long time for analysis and a longer time to made the enhancement and even a longer time to properly test all changes.
Implement Extended Rebate functionality. We have been looking at this and have a couple of questions on this:
Can we turn on the extended rebate functionality for existing agreement types?
Should we create new agreement types and use Extended Rebate functionality on the new agreement types?
The configuration of the Variable keys – are there any hidden “issues” we should be aware off?

Any comment, documentation, link to documentation, remark, suggestion is welcome.

Thanks and regards,
Jan Pel

hi Jan,

I was looking for some document on extended rebate functionality but have not been able to find any.

We've a requirement wherein we want to create a rebate settlement where each of the line item should refer to the invoices for which a rebate was accrued.

Please note that each invoice will have one line item and it's batch based invoice used in the automotive industry.

since the requirement can't be achieved by the standard rebate functionality, I'm trying to see if extended rebate functionality can be used?

thanks

Hi,
Sorry for my late response, but I had to find some of my documentation.
Please take a look at the following configuration step:
Tools -> Customizing -> IMG -> Execute project -> SAP Reference IMG -> Sales and Distribution -> Billing -> Rebate processing -> Set up Variable Key for Rebate Settlement
Regards,
Jan Pel

Thanks Jan,

I had actually already figured this out by switching on the "enterprise extension" and I used this functionality to create the variable key but due to some issue now I'm not able to create the settlement.

But I still have the question in mind. Does the system create the settlement with multiple line items by taking the details from the variable keys?

thanks
