Vendor debit at goods movement

Hello Experts,

I have a situation where the vendor should be directly debited for a particular goods movement.

The current process is split into two steps

Step 1.Goods movement using MvT 502, Accounting entries are

Inventory Cr

Gain/Loss Dr

Step 2. On save of above transaction, A Bapi is triggered to post and accounting doc, where the entries are

Gain/loss Cr

Vendor Dr

Now, the client wants that the Inventory Cr & Vendor Dr happens in one step. Is it possible to achieve the same via standard ? The To-Be process is as mentioned below

At goods movement using MvT 502, the accounting entries should be

Inventory Cr

Vendor Dr

Is the above possible ?

Thanks in advance for your valuable feedback

    If the vendor account is directly debited at the time of GR, how do you pay the vendor? You dont require any entries / documents for vendor invoice / payment?.

    Also, the GR/IR account is for clearing only, it will be cancelled once IR is done.

    Why should the account entry Vendor Dr for movement type 502.

    502 movement type is for cancellation the goods receipt without purchase order.

    When you do 501 movement type the its happens goods receipt without purchase order.

    Its just reverse of 501 movement type.

    Nothing related to vendor.

    As per standard business logic, 501/502 movement type always hit Gain/Loss A/c and inventory A/c.

    As per my knowledge any movement type can't hit directly vendor account.

    That's because SAP provide the GR/IR account.

    You have to do always an extra account entry for vendor.
