GR/IR account postings

Hi SAPers.

I am testing a scenario here whereby,

I make a PO of 1500 MT with a net price of 1183 per unit.

then I do gr for 750,250 and 500 respectively.

then a different user does the MIRO but while doing MIRO for 500 he keys in 5000 instead of 500 in quantity.

My invoice price amount remains the same but my GR/IR gets debited with 1,116,293.83,price diff cr 524,793.83 and vendor Cr 591500.

I am also able to pay the vendor the full amount for the 1500 MT as per the PO price.

Why was this possible and how can I resolve this?

Regards

JM

    Hi,

    Yes system will post the GRIR account as per the qty and invoice amount entered ..though the amount to go to the vendor is as the amount to get paid , the per unit price at invoices varies and this will come into the picture when you post the remaining GR . This is an unwanted situiation and gives scope for MR11 issue and the GL accounts clearing .

    what you need to do .

    Reverse the invoice posted wrongly without clearing it , and post the correct invoice with correct quantity as a corrective step .

    As a preventive step check the tolerances / invoice blocks at OMR6 and activate the respective keys for the company code so that system will stop there itself without getting posted .

    Regards,

    Firstly, You have done GR with price 1183 for 750 , 250 and 500, then your GR/IR amount will be debited as per 887250 , 295750 and 591500 and sum will be 1774500.

    At the time of MIRO, user has wrongly posted 5000 instead of 500. Now your qty is 6000 and amount still Payment amount still 1774500.

    Now your price different goes to 1774500/6000 = 295.75.

    Your GR/IR will be debited 1774500+295.75 = 1774795.75.

    And your vendor account will be credited 1774500.

    But you have wrote something else amount...

    Can you clarify this ??

    And can you able to cancel the invoice and enter again ?

    Patra

    yeah I agree...

    the scenario was triggered by internal audit so i am looking for all avenues of explanation since cancelling and reversing documents is one of the major issues they wish to minimize in the system.

    I really appreciate your help. Please be free to avail me with any other ideas you may have since we would wish to tally the amounts penny for penny since payment was done in foreign currency ie 591500 especially price difference amount.

    regards,

    Joe

    Hi,

    Why you allow invoice more than PO quantity and value with GR in place- You can restrict by message setting as Error.

    Refer thread which already discussed.

    Does your PO is having GR indicator ticked,then system will not allow more quantity then GR quantity.

    Patra,

    my price control is V since the material is raw material. i think difference might be because of foreign currency valuation since PO and Invoice are in different periods and FI changed exchange rates.

    • Okay....

      If your price control is V, then it will effect on Inventory account for material..

      The the amount goes to price difference account, it means you haven't stock available in your material master-accounting 1 tab...

      And also may your causes of different period for exchange rate...

      But you can sure about that system is posted correct value...

      System consider all possible things about the amount goes to price difference account...

      You can cancel the Invoice receipt...
