Configure Selection of Supplier Invoices in Payment Proposal for Cash Discount Purposes

This document explains how you set up additional values controlling which invoices should be included in a payment proposal. This enables you to pay as late as possible and still obtain a cash discount.

Outcome

Values controlling the cash discount management in the payment routine are defined.

The configuration is automatically applied when creating a payment proposal in 'Supplier Payment Proposal. Open' (APS130). However, it can be changed for each proposal.

Before you start

Parameters to Set

Program ID/Panel Field The field indicates …
(APS131/P) Blocked invoices in payment proposal

… how invoices that are manually blocked in (APS201/E) are processed when creating the proposal.

If this check box is selected, the blocked invoices are included in the proposal but with a block code.

(APS131/P) Invoices with cash discount only

… whether only invoices that can be paid with a cash discount are included.

If this check box is selected, no invoices that do not have a valid cash discount (the last discount date is passed or there are no cash discount terms) are included.

Note that the 'Due invoices only' check box then cannot be selected.

(APS131/P) All invoices with cash discount

... how cash discounts are calculated for the entire proposal.

Alternatives

0 = Normal cash discount calculation based on the cash discount terms of each invoice.

1 = Cash discount percentage 1 – according to the presentation in (APS201/E) – is used for all invoices included in the payment proposal.

2 = Same as alternative 1 but cash discount percentage 2 is used.

3 = Same as alternative 1 but cash discount term 3 is used.

(APS131/P) Due invoices only

... whether only due net invoices are included in the proposal. (A net invoice is an invoice that can be paid with a cash discount on the date selected for the payment proposal.)

If the check box is not selected, then all invoices are included in the proposal.

If this check box is selected, only due net invoices are included in the proposal. However, invoices that can be paid with a cash discount at the proposal date are not included. In this case, note that the 'Invoices with cash discount' check box must NOT be selected.

(APS131/P) Payment proposal block code 4 and 5

... whether invoices with block code 4 and 5 are included in the proposal.

Block code 4 is used for invoices due in the next payment proposal. Code 5 is used for invoices that can still be paid with a cash discount in the next proposal.

Alternatives

0 = All invoices and invoices with block codes 4 and 5 are included.

1 = Invoices with block code 4 are not included.

2 = Invoices with block code 5 are not included.

3 = Invoices with block code 4 or 5 are not included.

Note that if the 'Not due invoices' check box is selected, alternative 1 or 3 cannot be selected.

(APS131/P) Include not due invoices in payment proposal

... whether invoices that are not due are included in the proposal.

If this check box is selected, all open items are included. However, all invoices not due are blocked with block code 4 in the proposal. Note that alternative 1 or 3 then must not be selected in the 'Block code 4 and 5' field.
