2992296 - How to bill a sales order within one billing document where item category TAN and TAD are being used - SAP S/4HANA Cloud


A sales order with item category TAN for material item and TAD for service item is expected to be billed in one billing document.


  • SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. You have a sales order where one item is with item category TAN for material and the other item is with item category TAD for service.
  2. A delivery note is created only for the item category TAN since the item with category TAD is not relevant for delivery.
  3. You create invoice for both items but they are billed separately in different billing document.


To bill two items together, they must have the same header information to avoid billing split, especially the billing date. It can be realized billing two items together via VF01, VF04 or Create Billing Documents app.


The two items can be invoiced in one billing document by issuing them together in VF01, VF04 or Create Billing Documents app, only if the billing split is being avoided.

There might be an error in log saying '& Item category TA TAN cannot be invoiced with billing type F2.' (VF 003), but it's just because that item already has its subsequent document and the error will not avoid this billing document being created.

To avoid billing split, please refer to the following KBA:

Sometimes, if the different billing date is reason for billing split, you can specify a billing date then the split will be avoided.
