Third party sale scenario: COGS not allowed as automatically posted.

Dear Gurus,

I have come across this error during execution of third party sale scenario.

When the user enters a PO with reference to PR which is in reference to SO, one error pops up which says COGS cannot be automatically posted only.

When I deselect the "Post automatically" tick, the PO can be saved.

Process we are following during third party sale process:-

1. Sales order.

2. PR with reference to Sales order.

3. Purchase order with reference to PR.

4. Statistical GR with reference to PO.: COGS Dr. To GR/IR Clearing account Cr.

5. Sales Invoice: Customer Dr. To Sales Cr.

6. MIRO: GR/IR Clearing account Dr. To Vendor Cr.

I have my own doubts on the statistical GR part. Can you pls. validate the same.

Also in case of third party sale, what will be the CO object as COGS is not created a cost element. (SAP standard)

Regards,

Harnish Shah

Hi,

Why would you worry about the CO object if COGS is not created a cost element? Let me ask you, in your instance, which Cost Object is posted to COGS acct. at the time of delivery of goods (VL01N) for regular sales scenario? 

Remember in TPS, the COGS is posted at MIGO instead of VL01N (coz there is no delivery in picture here). So, No CO object is required at either time.

Hope it helps!

Thanks,

Thanks Nirav,

So in that case whenever billing is made, the revenues (Cost element 11) will be posted to CO-PA through SD condition type-->Value fields assignment. Right?

Hi,

Correct! Both Cost and Rev. flow to COPA at the time of billing in that case.

Thanks,
