If you create a PO without material you have the option of having a GR or no GR (it also depends on the configuration of the account assignment category).

Check the item delivery tab and you will see if you can change the flags

You can have no ticks and so no GR would be posted and all fanance postings happen at GR.

You could have the GR flag ticked and so all financial postings happen at GR stage.

You couldhave the GR flag AND the GR non-valuated flag ticked and this means a GR would be required but no financial postings will take place until invoice stage.

If a material master was involved then you you can still do the above but only if the account assignment category is NOT blank.

You can create PO without material when there is direct consumption. If you dont give material number in the PO, account assignment is manadatory. Usually you can create PO with account assignment K (Cost center) without material number.

When you receive the goods, once you make GR for the PO, the stock will be consumed for cost center and there wont be any stock.
