Notification and Review of Interest Paid

The document numbers for interest transactions include:

The generated transaction using T-code 387 has the same vendor number and mail code as the principal payment transaction.

The principal and interest transaction are cross-referenced on the history files:

Both principal and interest transactions are viewable on the accounting event inquiry screens (shown together on the 85 and 86 screens):

The Late Payment Interest Rate Profile (D98) allows agencies to inquire on the rate of interest used to pay vendors on late payments.

The Document Tracking Inquiry (37) screen provides information related to interest on the document tracking records for the principal payments.

The Single Payment Cancellation (44) screen reflects both the principal and interest transactions when the principal transaction document is recalled.

Note: Interest payments are reflected in TINS the same as other payments.

Control reports and many requestable reports from USAS reflect interest transactions, depending on detail, format and sort criteria. Extract files contain both principal and interest transactions.
