3332520 - Different Billing Dates in Project Billing and Billing Document - S/4HANA Cloud

Symptom

In app Manage Project Billing, Billing Date A is read from Billing Plan in Project -> Billing tab. When you create Preliminary Billing Document/Billing Document with reference to the Billing Document Request which is generated from previous Project Billing Request, you observe a different Billing Date B in app Create Preliminary Billing Document/Billing Document.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open app Manage Project Billing
  2. Open the WBS Billing Element, click Prepare Billing to go into the the New Project Billing Request, observe the Billing Date is A in item
  3. Submit the Project Billing Request to generate the Billing Document Request
  4. Create Preliminary Billing Document or Billing Document with reference to the Billing Document Request
  5. You will see Billing Date is B  in the app Create Preliminary Billing Document or Create Billing Document

Resolution

  1. The Billing Date A in item of Project Billing Request is derived from Billing Plan in Project -> Billing tab, which is the service render date for the billing plan item.
  2. The Billing Date B in Preliminary Billing Document/Billing Document is the system date when the Preliminary Billing Document/Billing Document is created and expected to be posted to FI.
  3. The Service Render Date in the item level of the Preliminary Billing Document/Billing Document is correctly mapped to the Billing Date A in item of Project Billing Request (point 1).
