SAP Rebate Management is the solution that enables companies to define, monitor, and modify sales rebate agreements based on customer, product, or volume-based commitments. It provides transparency in validating and processing rebate agreements with a clear trail of accruals and settlements. Organizations can centrally manage all rebate and discount processes, from calculation and approval to payout and settlement.

SAP Rebate Management also offers rebates as an incentive for customers to buy more products or higher volumes. This can help boost sales by presenting potential saving opportunities to current customers.

Key capabilities include:

  • Defining rebate agreements based on customer, product, or volume-based commitments
  • Monitoring and modifying rebate agreements in real-time
  • Validating rebate payments against accruals
  • Processing rebates through SAP ERP or SAP Customer Relationship Management (SAP CRM)

Key Considerations for SAPinsiders

Enable the management of rebate contracts and rebate claims at scale with automation. SAP Rebate Management can help organizations manage complex rebate contracts and automate rebate claims processing to improve efficiency and visibility across the entire rebate process while reducing the risk of error.

Leverage opportunities for automation in SAP Rebate Management when integrating with other SAP modules. When SAP Rebate Management is integrated with SAP ERP and SAP CRM, it provides a comprehensive view of rebate data across the entire organization. This can help businesses make more informed decisions about their sales rebate programs.

Explore the added functionality of condition contract management when migrating to SAP S/4HANA. SAP S/4HANA includes a new central and standardized solution for condition contract management for SAP customers. The new functionality enables users to create and maintain condition contracts for customers and suppliers and provides real-time access to actual business volume data directly from transactional documents.  SAP Rebate Management does not provide T-codes configuration flexibility for the supplier and the customer. As a result, condition contract management can help companies improve efficiency and accuracy in creating and managing rebate agreements.
