Efficient receivables and credit management reduces the risk of financial losses and helps you to optimize business relationships with your business partners. SAP Credit Management supports your company in determining the risk of losses on receivables from your business partners early and in making credit decisions efficiently and in some cases automated.

With SAP Credit Management, you can operate centralized credit management. The applications connected (for example, SalesLogistics Execution, Financial Accounting) report the commitment of a business partner to SAP Credit Management. These reports are then consolidated into the credit exposure in SAP Credit Management and checked against the current credit limit for the business partner.

Before starting your configuration for Sales, make sure you have completed the settings for the master data, processes and business transactions in SAP Credit Management. For more information, please visit Configuration for SAP Credit Management | SAP Help Portal.
