GR/IR Clearing Account

Dear All,

Currently we have multiple GR/IR accounts in OBYC WRX and now we want to keep only one GL in this setting, can you please suggest if I can keep only one GL account in WRX. If yes please let me know what to do with other GL's(as these GL's must have postings) and do I need to do any settings in OBYP Goods/invoices receipt clearing?

Thank you in advance.

    See, changing the settings of OBYC will not hit or impact in your existing posted document.

    It will hit for your new document.

    Suppose you have 4 G/L accounts for WRX transaction with regards to the 4 valuation classes and all G/L accounts has the posting.

    Now you want to post these to only one G/L account for these 4 valuation classes.

    So first, you need to see the debit credit balance of these other 4 G/L accounts which you want to remove from OBYC.

    You also need to find is there are any invoice pending for PO/SA which has GR done already. Because at the time of GR, system has already credited the GR/IR account from this old G/L. Now it should debit from the same G/L.

    After all these analysis , you can remove the valuation class from OBYC - WRX transaction key - Rule.

    Remove the all tick

    Then assign only one G/L account for the WRX key, system will use only this G/L account for this transaction key.

    (Note: It is strongly suggested to use different different G/L account for different material type)

    Hi Revan,

    First you have to make the balance as 0. After done this, you have to block the GL for further posting. No need to do any configuration in OBYP. Because these GLs wont get any postings.

    Hello Revan,

    If you have several accounts for the key WRX, you also need to make sure that the automatic account determination is updated to avoid that the system tries to post documents there.

    This will be an annoying error, w/o mentioning that if you have interface processes that will block the whole stuff.

    From a practical point of view, before removing the entries in OMWB/OBYC, please make sure that the GR/IR accounts are balanced (=0) with MR11.

    Besides, when there are several accounts, there is often an exit to handle the process in FM MR_ACCOUNT_ASSIGNMENT, check EXIT_SAPLKONT_011 as well.

    Cheers,

    Alexandre

    Hi,

    It's always good to keep individual GR/IR account for each type of transaction you have. Like Domestic material/Service, Imported Material/Service. Further If you have split valuation active in your system. It will be easy for you to track and follow up on pending transaction relevant to GR/IR.

    What advantage will you have by keeping one single GR/IR in place of multiple GR/IRs?

    Thank you,

    Gopi
