Chapter 9: Billing
Billing is the one of the most important process in a sales cycle. In this step, customers are invoiced for the services rendered or goods supplied. If there are any corrections in the billed amount or if the customer has returned the goods for any reason, the difference is settled by issuing credit or a debit memo or a credit for returns. All these documents are termed billing documents in SAP.
During the process of billing, you can choose to carry out a final repricing for some or all the pricing conditions before the invoice is created. The billing documents are then released to accounting. The determination of the accounts, the accounting document type, and other information is initiated during the billing process.
