Customer master records contain data that control how business transactions are recorded and processed by the system. They also include all the information about a customer that you need to conduct business transactions and an overview of the conceptual design for Accounts receivables and accounts payable is here.
Customer Master records in SAP Accounts Receivable represent the subsidiary ledger that supports the balance sheet accounts for Accounts Receivable, Deposits Payable, and Unearned Income. Individual customer master records are referred to as customer accounts and represent the amount owed by the customer (in the case of accounts receivable) or the amount of deposit paid by a customer. These funds also include money that will be returned or amounts of money paid in advance by a customer in anticipation of receiving some goods or services from MWR or VQ Activities.
Accounts Receivable Transactions
Entries are posted to customer accounts either by entering a transaction (sometimes referred to as an “invoice”) that establishes the receivable or liability against the customer. Payments against receivables are most frequently posted on a Daily Activity Record (DAR) as are payments received in advance or deposits. Invoices are entered, for example, when a returned check is received, when an individual hosts a private function at a MWR facility, or when a Command checks out of the Visiting Quarters and must be billed all room charges.
