On 7.5PS4, when executing below scenario,  encountered differences between old 7.2.1 BRM system and new 7.5PS4. At the last step there are 2 additional balance impacts which do not exist in 7.2.1 scenario. This creates discrepancy in final amount of prorated charges.

1. Create Billing Account on 01/03/2014 (1st of March 2014) with BDOM - 10.
2. Create Subscription on 01/03/2014 with Tariff PROD_1 - MCF amount = 121,95 Eur.
3. Buy add-ons for them on 01/03/2014.
a) DISCOUNT_1 - 25% discount on MCF amounts.
b) DISCOUNT_2 - 10% discount on MCF amounts.
4. On 03/03/2014 invoke Change tariff* opcode and change tariff to PROD_2 - 32,52 Eur.

*Change tariff cancels all deals, products, discounts associated with given tariff and then invokes PCM_OP_SUBSCRIPTION_TRANSITION_PLAN to change the tariff. It's done in two steps :

This scenario have the same balance impacts and behavior up to point 3 which is the last point that is correct. After that point 4 generates additional balance impacts using DISCOUNT_1 and DISCOUNT_2 discounts.The original amount (Eg. 1,686666667) upon which those discounts are invoked does not exist within that account EVENT_BAL_IMPACTS_T table.
