Downpayment Invoice

How do I record a downpayment Invoice in SAP? I know how to record downpayment (F-47 & F-48), but in this case vendor sends a separate Invoice for the downpayment.  Please note all the scnearios need to be done via MIRO so that all FI documents are attached to PO history.

Hi Sandeep,

I am not getting the exact requirement here. But the standard SAP process regarding DP is as below.

  1. Create and send Purchase Order to the vendor (transaction code ME21n)
  2. Vendor sends DP invoice
  3. The supply function creates a DP request (F-47). This does not generate any accounting document, as the special GL indicator used here is for DP request.
  4. Make payment against the DP invoice. (F-53 , F-58 or F110)
  5. Clear DP request  and DP payment (F-54)
  6. Goods receipt (MIGO)
  7. Vendor sends normal invoice and finance/supply (as applicable) records the same (FB60/MIRO)
  8. Clear Vendor Account (F-44, this clears DP at step 4 with invoice at step 7)
  9. Make balance payment to vendor (F-53 , F-58 or F110)

Hope that helps you!

Prasad, I think I am missing step No 5 . Clear DP request  and DP payment (F-54)

On F-54 screen under Relevant Invoice what should be the Invoice Number??

Hi Sandeep,

F-54 is Down Payment clearing not Payment. While given advances to Vendor ,treated as Current assets,which same has to transfer to Sundry creditors once GR happened in SAP.

OK...thats what I am trying to do ...trasnfer advance to vendor (current asset) to Sundry Creditor.

But I want to do it before GR.

So my question now is - can I do F-54 before MIGO & MIRO. If yes On F-54 screen under Relevant Invoice what should be the Invoice Number??

Hi Sandeep,

You have to do the same after GR ,not before . Do not enter any Invoice number over there ,you can get all invoice numbers output of F-54 where you have to select that invoice and transfer the amount. Invoice number means down payment FI number.

OK I was doing a dumb mistake...I was entering SGD as currency..where as all my downpayments were in USD..Hence it was not displaying Invoices.
