AP/AR Netting automatically compares Payables to Receivables and creates the appropriate transaction in each system to net supplier invoices and customer invoices. With this functionality, A receivables user can

  • View netted receipt details directly from the receipt
  • Create Netting Agreements and Netting Batches

With this functionality, there is significant increase in user productivity and effectiveness because of tight integration and automation.

You can access the process via:

  • Navigation: Receipts > Netting > Netting Batch
  • Navigation: Receipts > Netting > Netting Agreement
  • Receipts > Receipts > Action Menu : AP/AR Netting
    After Querying a netted receipt, the user can see more details about the batch by selecting AP/AR Netting from the Action menu. This launches the AP/AR Netting batch window. Netted Receipts are created automatically by the AP/AR Netting process and cannot be updated by the user from the Receipts Workbench

As we have seen Contra charging has been replaced by AP/AR Netting, lets take a setup walk though to use this functionality.

1.Define netting control account

Setup>Financials>Flex field>key>values

2.Create bank

Setup>payment>Bank and Bank Branches

You should note ,Payment document is not required for netting bank account.

3.Go to receivables responsibility, receipt class definition form

Setup>Receipts>Receipt class

Query the ‘AP/AR Netting’ receipt class which is a seeded one.


4. Attach your bank account in this receipt class.

5.Go to system options, transaction and customer tabbed region, there enable ‘Allow payment of Unrelated Transactions’check box


6. Create netting agreement

Receipts>Netting>Netting Agreement


7. Enter an Invoice in Payables, validate and run create accounting.

8. Enter a transaction in receivables.

9. Create Netting Batch

Receipts >Netting >Netting Batch


10. Query your netting batch and see the status as Complete. also click on view report icon on right on run push button, you can see the final netting report.

11.Go to view>request>find

You can see 3 concurrent request programs

  • Create Netting batch
  • Settle netting batch
  • Netting Data Extract

12.Now go to receipts and query the AP/AR netting receipt.

13.Now Go to Tools >view Accounting, you can see Netting control account (defined in first step a) debited and receivable account credited.

14. Now go to payables and query your invoice number and click the tab view payments. You can see the payment details and copy the document number.

15.Query your copied payment document number.What you can see the payment type as Netting .

    I tried to setup and erred at the first step.

    In the Receipt classes, I tried to enter the Bank Accounts and found none of my Bank accounts appearing in the LOV. Is it due to any missing setup or bug. Pls advise.

  6. Bobby Says:

    I have a situation where I want to create a single payment to multiple sites of a supplier.

    Also the same time the supplier sites acts as customer.

    In the end of the day, I will have to both pay and collect money from the sites…

    Can I utilize the AP/AR netting for this scenario?

    Also the preference of netting is payments. (90% of the time I need to pay the sites after netting)

    Please throw some light on this scenario.

  7. Sanjit Anand Says:

    Dear Bobby,

    Not sure, what version you are using

    if you are in 11i, there is something called Contra Charging, where supplier and customer as treated as customer and supplier to each other and at the end of month, you need to net off the amount and then raise credit memo or debit memo depends what is total net off amount.

    In R12, The same functionality have been enhanced by Ap-AR netting.

    If you need any further information , do let me know, i will help you.

    there is seperate Post in some time, just check the details
