Price Differences for Subcontract Orders at Goods Receipt effects

Hi experts,

For

Price Differences for Subcontract Orders at Goods Receipt, as descriped in F1:

In this step, you configure for each valuation area whether price differences are generated for a subcontract order at the time of a goods receipt if the manufactured material is managed at standard price and the standard price varies from the receipt value (externally performed service + value of components + delivery costs).

Example

Finished product: $400 (value at standard price)

Subcontract order:

  • Ext. service : $250
  • Components : $100

Posting schema without price differences:

Stock account FERT : 400 +
Stock change : 400 -
GR/IR clearing acct : 250 -
External service acct : 250 +
Compon. stock account : 100 -
Consumption account : 100 +

Posting schema with price differences:

Stock account FERT : 400 +
Stock change : 350 -
Price difference : 50 -
GR/IR clearing acct : 250 -
External service acct : 250 +
Compon. stock account : 100 -
Consumption account : 100 +

I understand the syatem behavior, my question is When should we activete this price difference? In what kind of business scenario?

THank you.

Richard

    Hi Richard,

    Are you sure that both the examples are of same material with standard price control in MMR ?

    As per my understanding, first accouting entry will occur for material having price ontrol as moving avg. price (V)

    Second, accouting entry will occur for material having price control as standard price control (S)

    Regds,

    I think you should discuss this with your accountants, if they do not want the SAP design, then it is possible to go with this alternative.

    The design is explained: Note 31433 - Price variance with subcontract order: Postings
