To handle credit card payments, you can maintain a business partner for the payment type Company Billed/Company Paid (reimbursement offsets not used) in the SAP Concur Expense. Assign an existing business partner from SAP Business ByDesign, to the clearing account code of Company Billed/Company Paid. When you post an expense report with this payment type, an open item is created against the business partner in SAP Business ByDesign. This open item can be viewed from the payables supplier account and can be later cleared.

Path to maintain Supplier ID as Clearing Account Code in Concur:

Login with Administrator User>Administration>Expense>Expense Admin>Payment Types>Select CBCP to maintain Clearing Account Code as Supplier Id.

The Supplier Id should be in the Payables work center and Supplier Accounts of ByDesign.
