GR and GI for the Subcontracting PO are not aligned

Hello,

We face an issue were the posting dates of the
GR(101 mvt) and GI(543mvt) for the Subcontracting PO are not aligned (GR takes
the posting date as the next day and GI as the current date).

We did an initial analysis and found that it is
the user time zone that leads to the different posting date. The user who does
the GR has a time zone setting of UTC+8 maintained in her user profile.
Whenever the user does a GR for the Process Order after 18:00CET, system
proposes the posting date for GR asthe next day. But GI picks the current date.
As per subcontracting scenario, the GI(goods issue from subcontracting stock)
happens whenever we do the GR. We understand that time zone has an effect on GR
posting date but the question is why GI posting date is not affected? Is it a
standard SAP behaviour?

Procedure -

We create the Process order via COR1 transaction,
In the master recipe we have maintained the control key for the subcontracting
operation.

Purchase Requisition will be created from the
Process Order. This PR is converted to Subcontracting PO via ME21N. The
delivery and PGI is done

via ME2O transaction. We have a custom transaction
to do the GR similar to MIGO transaction.

    Hi Manikumar,

    Empty the Personal time zone for the specific user & test the same. As by default, system time is maintained in UTC time zone.

    Thanks,

    Nihar
