Introduction

This blog is for SD & MM consultants. This functionality can be used from SAP S/4HANA OP2022, OP2023 version and SAP S/4HANA Cloud, private edition.

What is Advanced Intercompany Sales

Classic Intercompany Sales was developed in order to reduce documents between intercompany trading since SAP R/3. However, for audit and IFRS reasons Classic Intercompany Sales is not good enough.

Because Classic Intercompany Sales has no Sales Company’s Purchase Order, no Delivery Company’s Sales order, no supplier invoice verification and no valuation stock.


So, Advanced Intercompany Sales was developed.

The Advanced intercompany Sales has Sales Company’s Purchase Order, Delivery Company’s Sales order, supplier invoice verification and valuation stock.
