Applying open credit

Can some one please answer the question below

From time to time our builders send us checks for work that we have not yet completed or even started. When this happens they have to post the check (Or payment to that billing point) as on open credit. Subsequently we complete the work or partially complete the work and can bill it (Or again partially bill it). A/R person tells me that this is a very difficult process and that once she applies a portion of the check she looses visibility of the original document numbers.

I would want to think that applying a credit should not be that cumbersome and would like for you to explain to me the process Thanks

If you use milestone billing plan and create a contract (VA41), you would have complete visibility.

But your AR people are correct. When you "Partial Pay" the documents change, but you have got the document relationship browser in FBL5N to see the linkages.

Here is some more info on milestone billing:

so is my above process correct. to use f-29 when the builder pays and we havent billed him yet and then apply that in f-32 when we bill him and then use f-28 when he pays the remaining amount? when he pays the remaining amount should it be partial pay or residual pay or just normal?
