A subsequent debit/credit exists when an additional invoice or credit memo is received for a transaction that has already been invoiced.

  • Subsequent debit - You have already received an invoice from your vendor for all the goods received. Subsequently, freight costs are to be taken into account, however, the invoice quantity remains the same.
  • Subsequent credit - You have already received a credit memo from your vendor for all the goods received. Subsequently, freight costs are to be credited to your company, however, the credit memo quantity remains the same.


According to SAP Notes 812019 and 803206, when working with Subsequent Debit or Credit, the possible Nota Fiscal document types to use are:

  • 2 Complementar
  • 4 Conhecimento
  • 7 Conhecimento for Multiple Notas Fiscais

*In the scenario used as an example, we will use document type '2' Complementar.

  • To configure NF Type follow the path of SPRO highlighted below

Standard Process Flow

Process flow can start with the Basic Purchase Order Process, which means that the steps will be:

  1. ME21N transaction - Purchase Order
  2. MIGO transaction - Goods Receipt 
  3. MIRO - Invoice Receipt with Nota Fiscal creation
  4. MIRO - Subsequent Debit/Credit (shown below) 

Subsequent Debit/Credit

  • Subsequent Debit/Credit, as the name says, is a subsequent debit/credit to the vendor, like a subsequent adjustment of the process.
  • In the scenario here, subsequent debit/credit is like a second invoice based on the same goods receipt from the original invoice.
  • This process is done via MIRO, choosing option “3 Subsequent debit” or "4 Subsequent Credit" on transaction field. In this example we will use subsequent debit.
  • In this scenario this an unexpected cost so the field amount under line item comes empty.
  • The quantity will be filled with the remaining quantity from your goods receipt. 
  • In the reference field you must enter the Nota Fiscal number of original invoice. 
  • Then you must use an appropriate NF type, here we will use E2, that was set as “Complementar”.
  • Inside the NF it will be just like any other NF.
