Hi Dinesh,

Use this window to define freight that reflects extra sales or purchasing costs, such as delivery charges and deposit tax.

This window appears only if you have selected Manage Freight in Documents on the General tab of the Document Settings window (--> Administration --> System Initialization --> Document Settings -->).

Note Note

You cannot deselect the checkbox for existing companies that already manage freight; however, if no freight exists in any marketing documents, you can deselect Manage Freight in Documents.

End of the note.

After defining freight in the Freight - Setup window, you are able to select the appropriate freight in all sales and purchasing documents.

To open this window, choose --> Administration --> Setup --> General --> Freight -->.

Freight - Setup Window Fields

Enter the name of the freight.

Note Note

The freight name must contain alphanumeric characters only.

End of the note.

Enter a balancing account that contains the freight amount for sales documents.

You can only choose income accounts.

Your selection here determines the tax group for sales documents.

However, if you have defined a tax group in the business partner master data, that tax group is used as the default for freight in sales documents.

If required, you can change the tax group in these documents.

Enter the default amount for sales documents.

Enter the default amount for purchasing documents.

Defines the freight as liable to withholding tax.

Select the method for distributing the freight amount among document rows. Based on your selection, the freight charges are distributed from the header to the rows to allocate freight to inventory or last purchase price.

  • None – The freight amount is not distributed among the document rows. You cannot select this option if you have selected Inventory or Last Purchase Price.
  • Quantity – Distributes the freight amount among the document rows in proportion to the quantity of each row. For example, there are three rows with quantities of 5, 3 and 2, respectively, and the freight amount is $100. The freight amount is distributed as follows: $50 for the first row, $30 for the second row, and $20 for the third row.
  • Volume – Distributes the freight amount among the document rows in proportion to the volume of the items in each row.
  • Weight – Distributes the freight amount among the document rows in proportion to the weight of the items in each row.
  • Equally – Distributes the freight amount equally among the document rows. For example, the freight amount is divided by the number of rows and distributed accordingly, regardless of the quantity and total of each row.
  • Row Total – Distributes the freight amount among the document rows in proportion to the total amount of each row. For example, there are three rows with a total amount of $500, $300, and $200, respectively, and the freight amount is $100. The freight amount is distributed as follows: $50 for the first row, $30 for the second row, and $20 for the third row.

Specify the required calculation method of the freight per row. The calculation method you select becomes evident when you copy rows from a base document to a target document. The options are:

  • None – No freight will be copied to target document.
  • Quantity – The amount is divided into the item quantity and each unit carries the same amount of freight.
  • Total – SAP Business One calculates which part of the document total or row total is copied to the target document. It then adds the relative amount of the document or row freight to that target document.
  • All – Copies all the freight to the target document.

Adds the freight amount entered, either in the row level or the total level, to the item's cost calculated when working with perpetual inventory.

Updates the last purchase price list after adding an A/P invoice, which includes the freight amount per row.

Specify the distribution rule to be linked to this freight charge. When the freight charge is used in accounting documents, the freight amount is allocated by default to the distribution rule specified.

Specify the project that you want to relate to the freight.
