Hi all, we have a problem with the accounting part of a Return PO
We have the following scenario:
1- To receive the materials
A normal PO is used, an inbound Delivery and a Shipment are also created, the inventory is increased with a GR 101 that makes a Increase in the stock account against the GR/IR clearing account
2- To return product to the vendor
A return PO with the return flag turned on is created, we create also a delivery and a shipment, the inventory is decreased with a 161 movement that makes a decrease in stock account against a price difference account.
With this logic the GR/IR clearing account remains the same as it is not touched by the return process, the price difference account is affected instead.
How can we do to use the GR/IR clearing account in the second process (return to vendor) in order to touch the same accounts in both processes ??
Is there any other way to solve it ?
Any idea is very welcome
Your assumption is not correct. When you make GR for retuns PO, Stock account is credited(BSX) and GRIR clearing account gets debited (WRX). Then during credit memo processing of retuns PO, vendor gets debited and GRIR clearing account get credited. There is no price difference account in picture. This is as per standard SAP Check your entries.
