Transferring Open Business Partner Items

Transferring receivables or credits is necessary if a business partner assumes the rights and obligations of another business partner, such as in the case of inheritance or taking on liabilities. From time to time it might also be necessary to transfer receivables or credits within different contracts or contract accounts of the same business partner. This is the case, for example, if a customer terminates a contract, but the remaining receivables are to be collected together with the receivables for the new contract.

During the transfer, the system clears the selected items and posts them to the target account. Most of the posting information is transferred. The new items only differ from the original items in their origin and posting date. The receivables account, due date, transaction name, and dunning and interest information remain the same for these items. You maintain transactions for the transferred items in Customizing for Contract Accounts Receivable and Payable under Business TransactionsTransfersDefine Transactions for Transferring Items . During the transfer, the system does not perform account determination again for the new items. However, this makes it easier to read the account balance display, since you can recognize the transferred items directly from the transaction and transaction text. In event 5110, you can define whether existing payment and dunning locks are retained. If the target account for the transfer posting is a contract account that belongs to a collective bill account, the collective bill is updated automatically.

You can transfer:

Individual items – receivables and credits (see also the explanations for transfer postings in Clarifying Credits )

All items of a business partner

All items of a contract account

All items of a contract

Items from an installment plan In this case, existing installment plans are deactivated automatically and a new installment plan is created for the amount of the remaining open, original receivables.

Items that belong to a collective bill The collective bill is updated automatically.

You can also reverse the transfer document.

For more information about transferring, see SAP Note 616098.

You can only transfer open receivables or credits. When the transfer is made, the system does not determine any new G/L accounts for the posting. This means that no new postings are made to receivables and revenue accounts. If the original contract account also contains items assigned to contracts, you have to enter a target contract for each of the contracts determined by the transaction. You can only carry out the transfer without specifying a target contract if the target contract account is not based on contracts. If the original contract account has postings that are only assigned to contract accounts, then the system also posts them in this way in the transfer document. In this case, specifying a target contract is irrelevant.

 In event 5100 you can override the stipulation that you have to enter a target contract for items that were originally posted to a contract.
