Self-Billing
More functionality

In certain countries it is not permitted to send credits to the claimants. Instead, the claimant
needs to send invoices. To ease the process of creating invoices, it is permitted that the
manufacturer can create the invoices on behalf of the claimant. This process is called SelfBilling

From a user perspective, there is no difference whether a standard posting, or Self-Billing is


done. Before posting the claim, however, the partner number is switched to the customers
vendor. Within the claim, the vendor does not have any function, it is just used for the financial
posting

More integration

The Consulting Solution Warranty Management Self-Billing is seamlessly integrated into any
existing warranty process

Warranty clerks do not have to worry about the posting type. Self-Billing happens completely
automatically

More flexibility

Self-Billing can be turned on for certain customers only

The customer has to provide a number range which can be used for creating the invoices. This
number range must be used without gaps

Self-Billing Application
Posting looks as usual
Warranty clerks use that same action for posting (no matter if a dealer needs
standard posting or Self-Billing)

The integration of the posting action into the action matrix is part of the
consulting solution

Self-Billing Application

Self-Billing Application
Define Number range for invoices of partner
When using Self-Billing for a customer, an invoice is automatically created for
each posting on the OC version
Invoice numbers are assigned from the ERS Invoice Number Range assigned to
the vendor

In some countries it is necessary to have separate number ranges for posting


and reversal. If you only need one combined number range for posting and
reversal, you can use the same number range

Self-Billing Application

The claim version is also shown as posted in the navigation tree
Accounting and CO documents are available in document flow

Self-Billing Application
Reversing a Self-Billing claim
Reversing a Warranty Claim using Self-Billing (i.e. the posting type SB is used)
is the same as reversal of other claims
The actual accounting document of the posting is reversed, thus all taxes and
discounts / surcharges are handled correctly
If the original posting period is closed no real reversal possible a contra
posting is issued, again with correct tax reversal handling

Self-Billing Application
Late Number Assignment
In some countries (e.g. Mexico), automatic number generation is not possible.
Instead the business has number stickers which are attached to the credit
printouts after the actual printout
It needs to be recorded, which sticker went onto which piece of paper.
A transaction is used to add these numbers to the claim versions

With this Transaction you can insert the Self-Billing Number into the claim
