For each line item on which interest is to be calculated, an interest key must be determined.

You can assign an interest key in the
contract account master record at contract account/business partner level or to an individual line item in a document.

By defining interest keys at individual dunning levels of a dunning procedure, you can have the system calculate interest at different levels on items to be dunned at each dunning level.

If more than one interest key is defined for a line item, these interest keys are normally prioritized as follows:

  1. Interest key in line item
  2. Interest key that is defined for transactions identified as additional receivables
    An interest can depend on the operative company code in the rule for additional receivables.
  3. Interest key in dunning level
  4. Interest key in contract account master record

The interest key for interest calculation on cash security deposits is entered directly in the cash security payment or in the security deposit itself. It follows that an interest key defined in the contract account does not affect the conditions for interest calculation on the cash security deposit.

The way in which interest keys are used can vary depending on the application area.
