Inventory Split Valuation 

Split Valuation: Material can be valuated based on different types of procurement, it is known as Split valuation. 

Split valuation helps in valuating the stocks of a material in the same valuation area (company or plant) differently. 

 Some of the examples where split valuation is required are as follows: 

  • Stock that is procured externally from a vendor has a different valuation price than the stock of an in-house production. 
  • Stock obtained from one vendor is valuated at a different price than the stock obtained from another vendor. 
  • Same material having different batch may have different valuation prices. 


  • IF you have a material (Raw Material) and this material you procure it from multi supplier’s domestic and foreign (from different countries).Purchasing a raw material from suppliers in Spain, China and Egypt So, the value of this raw material will be different from one country and another So, this will lead to differentiate in value of stock of this material and create one valuation category here and 3 valuation type according to these 3 countries. 

Another case: if you have spare part material and this material has different category (NEW-DAMAGED-Refurbished)  

  • So, the material is the same material but has different values according to its category which means that the material has one valuation category and 3 valuation types (NEW-DAMAGED-Refurbished) 


  • You act as spare parts Company and has an oil filter (material) & you have different categories of this filter you purchase this oil filter (new, damaged or refurbished) 
  • So, you have one material has valuation category and this valuation category has  

valuation types in it.
