Hello Everyone,

In my SAP system item 'restocking fee' is not pulling through invoice.

I think its coz . it has been assigned TAN item category and when it should have been TAD.hence not pulling through invoice. Am I correct?

Or do you think I need to make some changes in pricing condition to get it right?

Also please let me know if I have to set up a 'Restocking fee' material master , is there a sample available I can follow .

Please advise asap.
Thanks for your support...

Not sure, what efforts you put to find out solution to your requirement. First, you need to decide a value that should be posted to a billing document is delivery related or order related. Delivery related means, physically, there would be outward movement of goods for which, the end customer would be charged. On the other hand, if your client offer some service where there is no physical movement of material is involved, then it is order related billing. From your post, it seems, it is an order related charges in which case, yes you need to have a different item category for order related and item related. Not only this is enough, you also need to maintain condition record for this based on which, system would fetch to billing.

Hi Lakshmipathi ,

You are right. Mine is order related. Its the fee we charge to a customer for returning an item which they ordered either by mistake or no more required. Its added as a line item in VA01 under Restocking fee. Can you please explain in detail what set up I should do to this material in terms of item category or pricing condition so it gets pulled through in invoice.
