Inbound Correspondence (Conventional)

You use this function to determine the due date by which a business partner is obliged to submit a declaration (for example, a tax demand) unprompted. To do this, you specify the control data for inbound correspondence in a contract object. In the case of an obligation to submit declaration, a data record is generated which you can use as Inbound Correspondence for further processing.

Inbound correspondence is completed (fulfilled) as soon as a reply to the request has been received and the date of receipt has been entered. In addition to this confirmation of received correspondence, you can also set a deferral date or a dunning block indicator for the inbound correspondence. You can use the correspondence dunning run to select correspondence which arrives after the due date and generate the necessary dunning notice using the correspondence print. It is also possible to generate reminders for inbound correspondence within a dunning run.

You have to make the settings in Customizing for inbound correspondence under Financial AccountingContract Accounts Receivable and PayableBusiness TransactionsInbound Correspondence
