Overview
Billing Documents
Billing document is a generic term for invoices, credit memos, debit memos,
proforma invoices, and cancellation documents.
A billing document is made up of a header, which contains data that applies to the
whole document, and of any number of items.
An accounting document records changes in values in a company code arising
from accounting transactions. They consist of one or more line items (postings)
each of which represents an individual transaction posted to an account.
When posting an accounting document, the system updates the transaction figures
in the accounts the document is posted to.

The Billing Document represents the final function in the SD order
process chain.
Billing documents can be issued through deliveries, sales orders,
credit memos, and debit memos.

Processing Individual
Billing Documents
Types of Billing Documents
In SAP, there are a variety of different billing documents that can be generated.
Most billing documents will originate from outbound deliveries. However
other types can be created off an order. For example, credit memos never have
deliveries; therefore the billing document is generated from the order as a
credit memo request.

Creating a Billing Document
Invoices will typically be created using the Billing Due List which
creates invoices in bulk that are due for billing. (See section III).
However, an individual billing
document can be created in VF01
following the menu path: Logistics,
Sales and Distribution, Billing,
Billing Document, Create.
8
Creating a Billing Document
Enter the document to
be billed and hit enter.
The billing type will
automatically default
from the type of
document entered.
If creating FD Related party invoices or Proforma invoices, you must designate that
first in the billing type before entering the document number.
9
Creating a Billing Document
The next screen will show you what is on the reference document that you
entered. The example below, the reference document originated from a
delivery document. The material on the delivery will be invoiced once the save
icon is clicked.

accounting documents have been
generated.

While in the invoice, you can view
the accounting documents by
clicking on the accounting button.
A list of the accounting documents
associated with the invoice will be
displayed. Double click on a specific
document to view it.
14
Proforma Invoices
A proforma invoice is an invoice that is generated before the shipment is made.
Often the proforma invoice is used by our customers to obtain importation
license when shipping overseas.
There are two methods by which a proforma invoice is generated:
• For an entire sales document—issued for the entire open order.
• For an outbound delivery—issued for just the material on a specific delivery.
Note: Data from Proforma invoices is not transferred to Accounting.
15
Creating a Proforma Invoice from a Sales Document
From the drop down
menu, choose the
billing type
‘Proforma for
Order’.
Enter the sales order
document number.
Hit enter.
16
Creating a Proforma Invoice from a Sales Document
The material on the
order will be listed.
To finish processing
your proforma
invoice, click on the
Save icon.
Once the invoice has been generated,
the document number will appear at
the bottom of the screen.
The document will automatically
print to the user’s designated printer.
17
Creating a Proforma Invoice from a Delivery
From the drop down menu,
choose the billing type ‘Pro
Forma Inv f Dlv’.
The material on the
delivery will be listed.
To finish processing your
proforma invoice, click on
the Save icon.
The document number
will appear at the bottom
of the screen. The
document will
automatically print.
18
Printing a Billing Document
When a billing document is created, it automatically prints at the designated printer
of the user. However if another print out is required, output can be generated.
Printing any type of sales document in SAP is referred to as “output”.
You can generate output for Billing documents in several locations:
VF03—Display Billing Document
VF31—Issue Billing Documents

III. Processing Billing Due List
30
Billing Due List
The Billing Due List is a list of sales documents that are ready to be processed.
Example: All deliveries and orders that have been processed for the day (i.e. post
goods have been issued) will be invoiced when the Billing Due list is processed.
Note: Billing date will be the same day as the day the post goods was issued for
deliveries. The billing dates on credit and debit memos will be updated by the
approver.
The list can be created using different selection criteria such as sold-to party,
shipping point, etc. Also, you can decide whether the billing list should include
just delivery-related documents, order-related, or both.
The billing due list can be run in background as a batch job at a specific time of
the day. However, <Client> will not use this functionality at 9/00
implementation.
If during processing any problems or errors arise, you view the billing log to
determine which billing documents were created from the billing due list and
whether any errors occurred.
31
Processing the Billing Due List
While individual billing documents are created by Sales, the Billing Due List will
be processed by Finance. All deliveries, credit memos, debit memos, billings,
returns, etc. are processed through the Billing Due List daily.
Follow the menu path:
Logistics
Sales & Distribution,
Billing,
Billing Document,
Process Billing
Due List

Processing the Billing Due List
The Billing Due List is
generated based on the
criteria you enter.
