3456613 - Billing split not prevented in mixed item categories scenario - S/4HANA Cloud


When you bill orders containing a mixture of order-related and delivery-related item categories, the order and delivery documents must be billed together (for example, by selecting both of them in the billing due list of the Create Billing Documents app) so that their billing items can be converged into a combined invoice. You also want to avoid billing split in this case regardless certain split-relevant fields.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open app Create Billing Document
  2. Enter two deliveries with order-related and delivery-related item categories, for example, one it TAN and the other is TAX.
  3. Execute
  4. You may see the billing is split and the reason behind in the Log, for example, Shipping Condition is different.


To prevent unwanted billing document splits during billing document creation, you can use the BAdI Custom Data Transfer for Billing Documents to clear certain split-relevant fields. 

Refer to the help documentation (How to Prevent or Force a Billing Document Split) for details.

*Note: the BAdI implementation must be assigned to all the item categories in the mixed item categories scenario.
