Post Goods Issue - Cost Object Issue

Hello All Experts,


I am seeing on system, after posting PGI the COGS which is Debiting is defined as a Cost Element category “1”. In FB03 when I look at all Cost Object fetching from layout I see all of them are BLNK. So despite of defined that account as cost element why system has not thrown error, No Cost Object is assign?


1) I seeing in system that only “Profit Centre” is filled, if PRCTR is statistical (cost) Object why system has populated that?


2) In this case which cost object is USED?



Expert’s guidance will be very helpful on this.

Regards,

Sharvari Joshi .

    Hi Sharavari,

    Please check your OKB9 setting. I think you have ticked "Profitability Segment" for this cost element there. It means, for this cost element, cost object will be profitability segment.No need of cost center.

    Hi Sharvari,

    Define account assignment for the cost element in OKB9. Here you have to maintain cost centre for each valuation area/plant combination.

    Hello Both,

    I checked neither KA03 "Default Account Assignment" nor "OKB9" PSG or Cost Centre marked / maintained. Still document is getting posted.

    Is there anywhere else I can check for this ?

    Thanks !

    Regards,

    Sharu.

    All,

    I checked, system has posted document to PSG ( Even though PSG is not marked in OKB9 ).

    We have costing base COPA implemented, I understand from various blogs and SAP Help Portal that PGI is not origin of COPA effect only Sales Order and Billing Document transaction flows to COPA.

    So how in this case of PGI system has generated "Profitability Segment". I can see the entries in CE4 Table and not in CE1 !

    Experts guidance will be helpful on this.

    Regards,

    Sharu.

    Hello Ajay and Sanil Sir,

    Account Base COPA is active. Does that mean PGI should have effect in COPA ?

    Can you please explain PGI + Account Base COPA link ?

    Thanks for guidance.

    Regards,

    Sharu....

    • Hi

      Since Account based copa is active and you have a CE1 assigned for PGI, you are getting a PSG entry at time of PGI. You will also get a Profitability document at the time of billing, if you have costing based copa active, since the delivery or COGS information flows to costing based copa during billing and at the time of PGI in your case for account based COPA.

      Since you have both type of COPA active, i suggest the below entries for SD Billing:

      At time of PGI

      Stock in Transit Out Dr

      To Stock -FG

      At time of Billing

      Customer A/c Dr

      COGS A/c Dr

      To Revenue

      To Stock in Transit Out

      The Stock in Transit Out will be a balance sheet account and will be knocked off when you do the billing. The COGS A/c will be a P&L Account. This will ensure that both COPA are populated at the same time and also you adhere to accepted accounting practice, where Revenue is recognized as soon as Goods are delivered to customer. You can get in touch with your SD Colleague to create an accrual condition for this kind of posting and also work with your MM/SD colleague to ensure proper accounting at the time of PGI as I listed above

      Thanks & Regards
