1838550 - Supplier Invoice of Partner Company does not Create a Receivable Item for Invoiced Company


Your company XYZ is invoiced by your partner company ABC which is part of your organization and set-up as such in your ByDesign system. You are creating a supplier invoice for company ABC and the invoice is shown in the supplier's account monitor for company ABC. Since this is an intercompany transaction, your expectation is that consequently a receivable item (e.g.: customer invoice) is automatically created and reflected in the receivable monitor for your company XYZ.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier Invoicing work center.
  2. Create a new Supplier Invoice.
  3. As Buying Company you define your company XYZ. As Supplier choose the associated company ABC.
  4. Navigate to Receivables / View: Customer Accounts work center.
  5. Select your company XYZ and View / Trade Receivables.


The scenario described here does not reflect the Intercompany Supplier Invoicing process as outlined in the online-help. Intercompany Supplier Invoicing in ByDesign relates to the invoicing of a company by a third-party supplier. In case Intercompany Supplier Invoicing is enabled in your configuration, a partner company can be charged for selected invoice items. In this scenario a receivable item of type 'Other Receivable' is automatically created in the account monitor for the charged company XYZ. 


In the original scenario of invoicing company XYZ by partner company ABC, a separate customer invoice has to be created for company XYZ in order to reflect this transaction as a corresponding receivable item in the account monitor.
