Correct me if I am wrong - for Freight, if amount short paid e.t.c what are the main scenarios.

Subsequent debit is nothing but when carry goods from one place another place, one carrier who has taken to shift one place another place but another vendor would be getting payment from client, in this case main carrier is different and another payment receiver is different. For this while we will select as subsequent and process.

This is happening most in freight cases..

Please correct me if I am wrong..

Subsequent debit or credit is only posted when only price is involved and not quantity. for eg. If vendor has invoiced 1 invoice for goods(Quantity) and then second invoice only for additional cost than the material cost. then an Invoice entry cannot be done. Here we do a subsequent debit

Similarly when credit has to be taken only because of price/unit mismatch and not related to Quantity returned or rejected, a subsequent credit has to be posted.

Subsequent credit is used to show price difference. Credit is for quantity difference.

Basically the concept of Sub debit and credit apply to adjust the price difference where quantity is not included.
This can be placed only after the fist document has been keyed into the SAP.
