    Hi Robin,

    When you create Sales order, the cost of goods sold (COGS) is determined in Sales order pricing itself. This cost is getting calculated on a combination of Article and Plant (site) and displayed against a condition type VPRS in your sales order pricing. The same condition type is then transferred to your billing document and subsequently passed to FI.

    In standard, when you do PGI in outbound delivery, the inventory value will be decreased by COGS. If you have enabled Profit center accounting, you will see a profit center document where COGS are posted and if CO-PA is activated, the VPRS is passed to COGS value field.

    In your case try to see whether in your Sales order, do you have VPRS populated. Also check whether you have VPRS condition in your billing document.

    If you do not have Profit center accounting and CO-PA, then there is no posting of VPRS and only revenue & customer G/L accounts are posted.

    I hope this will help.


    Regards,

    Amit

    • Hi Robin,

      In general scenarios, the COGS will be posted to FI when material document is posted.

      If your processing is only order relevant does not include Delivery at all, still COGS will not be posted in FI from billing document.

      For example, in Service order where delivery is not applicable, the COGS is passed or settled in FI through a service entry.

      Can you please provide more light on what process you are trying to execute when you think COGS should be posted to FI?

      Regards,
