Implementing the rebates granule will allow you to internally calculate rebates claimed by your customers, to verify that they are accurate, and provide detailed supporting information to reconcile their claims. It will also give you up to date reporting on your rebate liability should your customers not claim their rebate immediately. You can also produce your own rebate reports to provide your customers with rebate values instead of relying on their claim.
The rebates granule gives you the flexibility to calculate and report rebate amounts by different types, and will automatically accrue values to the General Ledger when posting sales to later offset with actual claims. The values can be analysed with Advanced Analysis Reports, by Customer, Item, and any of your Dimensions.
