JVA Operated Cash call- GJ01/GJ02-SAPSHARKS

 

Cash Calls

Cash Calls are requests from joint venture operating partners to non-operating partners requesting payment for anticipated future capital and operating expenditures.

 Posting method CCIN allows the operator to issue cash calls to non-operating partners. 

Operated Cash calls-When the company running JVA operates a venture, that company issues operated cash calls to its non-operating partners. 

Non-Operated Cash calls-When the company running JVA is a non-operating partner in a venture, the company receives non-operated cash calls from the operator of the venture.

Types of Cash calls

Cash calls can be posted into SAP either gross to all partners or net to a specific partner.

For GROSS cash calls, the program uses the active equity group to calculate each partner’s share of the cash call posting.

All cash call postings make entries directly on the partner’s A/R account; therefore, these entries do not go through cutback.

Operations  month and Billing month

Operations month: The period in which the actual expenditure happens. This is the period in which the actual cash call is matched against the expenditure. 

E.g. If an operator issues a cash call in month 4, for expenses that it expects to incur in month 5, the operations month is month 5.

Billing month– This is the month in which the cash call is raised.
