How to initiate bonded warehouse process in SAP ECC

0 Kudos

Hi Experts,

What is the standard way to identify a CBW transaction based on the PO items from SAP ECC.

1. Customs ID is mapped to plant and storage location combination to identify the bonded plant/DC.

2. What should be done at the material level in ECC? Extend Foreign Trade Import tab and activate any standard field to indicate that the material is a bonded product?

Importer in this scenario imports both bonded and unbonded materials using the same PO, the line items needs to identified using a material/plant combination.

If there is no standard field in ECC material master, I am thinking of using default rules in this combination of plant and material.

Your suggestions?

Hi Pradeep,

Jessica is right; you need to set up the Product Special Customs Procedure attributes in GTS. You can do that directly in GTS, or run program /SAPSLL/PRECIP_DISTRIBUTE_R3 in the feeder system. In either case, you then need to distribute the attributes back to the feeder system - that will maintain entries in table /SAPSLL/ECPPA, which you may check with SE16.

Then you also need to transfer the Duty-Paid Stock to GTS, by running transaction /SAPSLL/BWHIDP_R3, which you can also find in the GTS Cockpit ("Initial transfer of Duty-Paid Stock"). It doesn't matter if there IS no stock - the transfer is needed to activate the Product record in the GTS BWH.

Then, it should all work...

Hi Dave,

Thanks for your valuable and timely inputs, as always!

As mentioned to Jessica above, my client has a new material introduction process in SAP ECC. At this stage they want to identify the product is bonded or not. When we flag the product as bonded relevant and re-distribute it to feeder system, is there any field in ECC material master that gets updated?

Thanks,

Pradeep

Pradeep; no, the Material Master record in ECC is not updated to indicate the BWH status. The GTS model assumes that segregation of the stock is accounted for in the Customs computer system, rather than by any physical means. In the EU, that equates to using Customs Warehouse type 'E' (under the old Customs Code) or now 'U' (under the new UCC).

Regards,
Dave

I have not done bonded warehouse yet, but if it is like FTZ, then I would think you would make the product relevant in GTS Product Master and then run the program to distribute back to ECC so it will update /sapsll/ecppa table.

Thank you Jessica! This will help, however when a new material is introduced in SAP ECC, the master data team needs to flag this material as CBW relevant.

I was wondering if we can utilize any of the existing Foreign trade related fields in ECC material master.
