3491070 - Unwanted Billing Split Due to Credit Control Area in SAP S/4HANA Cloud


Unexpected billing split due to the credit control area.


SAP S/4HANA Cloud 


According to standard system logic, the CCA (credit control area) in sales order is determined from the following 3 place:

  • Customer Master Data (Manage Customer Master Data -> Enter the BP -> Enter 'Sales Area' -> Find 'Credit Control Area' under 'Billing' section)
  • SSCUI: Assign Sales Area to Credit Segment (ID: 101508)
  • SSCUI: Assign Company Codes to Credit Segments (ID: 102255)

You can decide to delete the CCA assignment of all of the 3 place. After that, the CCA should be no longer determined in sales order.

Please note that the solution above can be used only when you decide to not to use credit management functionality.

If you still want to use credit management functionality, please don't delete the CCA assignment. In this case, you will have to split the sales order.
