Vendor Tolerance Group

Freely definable group code for customers and vendors, or G/L accounts. Tolerance groups are unique within a company code. Each tolerance group contains settings that affect cash discount and payment difference processing. These settings become effective during payment entry.

You can use the tolerance level to set a percentage or absolute tolerated difference between the transmitted value and the open value. If the difference exceeds the tolerance limit, a new open item is created. The system compares the value transmitted with the value that is still open in the internal invoice for the delivery. You can set tolerance limits
at delivery and/or item level (material.) If the tolerance limit is not violated, no new open item is created.
