Simplest solution to me seems to be to create Payment terms that take into account the lead time to get to the customer.

Ask your FI people when should the Revenue be recognised... (i.e. invoice make it's postings). If it can be delayed until when the goods reach the customer then POD as mentioned above could be used.

Hi Gurus,

This is my clients requirement.

Please find the key parameters required in credit management control in

At present system shows overdue of invoices from date of invoice. But as
mentioned to you payment terms of most of our customer is from date of
receipt of material at their end. Transit time of delivering our products to
customers at Mumbai , Silvassa, Kolkata & Delhi is 5, 6, 7 & 8 days

In our existing system, payment terms gets effective as soon invoice is cut
& tanker carrying our product is out of our plant premises. Hence, invoices
in system gets due from date of invoice. So, manually we need to add actual
transit time taken by tanker to reach at customer premises & then calculate
manually the overdues.

We have no issue if system captures the invoice date post invoicing for
calculating overdues/ outstanding but when delivery dates are entered by
our logistics personnel against the respective invoices in system
post-delivery of the product, system should overwrite the invoice date
captured earlier with delivery date entered by logistics personnel later.
This shall help in calculating exact outstanding's in system & correct
credit limit for respective customers.

Post your discussion with your programmer, please confirm on our above
requirement. Let me know in case of any further clarification required.

Thanks in advance
