Billing Plan | SAP SD Module PDF

In SAP SD a billing plan is a schedule of individual billing dates for a single item in a sales document. You can define a billing plan at header level, which is then valid for all items assigned to it.

Depending on the kind of business process you are carrying out, the system can automatically propose one of two different types of billing plan: periodic billing or milestone billing.

  • Periodic billing means billing a total amount for each individual billing
    date in the plan. For example, if you are creating a rental contract, the
    system can propose a schedule of monthly rental payments, according to the
    length and conditions of the contract.
  • Milestone billing means distributing the total amount to be billed over
    multiple billing dates in the billing plan. For example,you can use a billing
    plan for billing a make-to-order item that is assigned to a project in the SAP
    Project System. When you enter the project-related maketo- order item in the
    sales order (or assembly order), the system proposes a billing plan based on
    milestones defined for networks in the project. As each milestone is
    successfully reached, the customer is billed either a percentage of the entire
    project cost or simply a pre-defined amount.
