If you ever wondered how we can use different Settlement Profiles in Financial Projects Context, you're in the right place. In this Blog, I'll explain step by step how to check the Settlement Profiles and attribute it to a Project / WBS Element.
The Settlement Profiles have many usages, for example, when you would like to close an Internal Project with balance greater than zero (with costs) without running settlement. In this case, you can use a settlement profile YNS - No Settlement in order to close this project without errors. Please check if this is allowed in your business context.
To check the existing profiles, you can go to your CBC System and search for Configuration Activity - Create Settlement Profile. If you are using "Manage Your Solution", you can search for SSCUI - 105768. Once you enter the configuration, you will be able to see the full list of Settlement Profiles:
