Treatment of Exchange Rate during Goods receipt


Hi All,

May i request your assistance in sorting the below issue?

I need a confirmation on the entries when GR is done with exchage rates differences. In my understanding, the entries are followed as mentioned below:

Inventory account Dr

To, GR IR clearing account Cr

and Unreleased gains / loss a/c (Dr or Cr)

SAP is already posting the above mentioned entry.

Now, My client has come back with a differnce entry where according to him the entry should not hit Unreleased gains/loss but should hit Relaease Gains/loss.


Inventory A/c Dr

to, GR IR clearing a/c Cr

qand released gains / loss a/c (Dr or Cr)

Could anyone please confirm which entry is correct?

If the seconf is correct, I would like to know how this can be configured in SAP.
