Hi Syamala,
In sOmar's original post talk about "resetting the counter". The best (if not only) way to do that is to execute final settlement and extend. And if that is part of the agreement, "what the customer wants" doesn't really matter anymore.

Hi All,

I assume what I am asking might be quite a basic question but I haven't been able to find a proper response yet. Would appreciate if someone could forgive my unfamiliarity with rebates and clarify this a little more.

The scenario is that we have a rebate agreement with some customers. The agreement is such that if for a month the customer hits $X of sales the customer will get Y% rebate. Now this agreement is reset every month i.e. if the customer fails to hit $X within this month then next month he needs to start from 0 or if the customer manages to go over $X this month then the appropriate credit is issued and the counter for next month is reset.
In such a case I imagine I can create a single rebate agreement per customer and then set the validity to be a month and then issue partial rebate every month. However, would this accomplish the task of resetting the sales volume or do I need to do something more like Change Validity Periods or Extend the Agreement. I imagine the solution would be simpler than creating a new agreement each month. Any suggestion on the best way to map this scenario?

Thanks for all the help.
