The settlement type in contract account represents the business transaction (such as invoicing, automatic account maintenance, cash desk and payment lot) in automatic settlement and clearing postings. It is used for determination of the payment allocation rules and settlement rules.
The settlement type also characterizes the grouping of the invoicing unit in invoicing. It is determined dynamically in the invoicing run from the grouping and the properties of the invoicing unit.
The settlement type is used to control a number of invoicing functions. It is stored in the header data of the print document ERDK (VERART).
The following predefined settlement types are available: You use event IS-U Invoicing: Settlement Types (R400) to override them.
