Transfer of Discount Given from Common Profit Centre to Respective Profit Centre

There are many product segments for the client. The sales ledgers are mapped to the respective profit centers. However the discount given for all the segments are mapped to common profit center.

So when a Segment P&L statement is generated, the discount given isn't accounted for in that P&L.

The client desires the discount given a product to be mapped to the profit center related to that product rather than the common profit center.

Please advise how this can be done?

    Client decided to close the ticket because to do what they want:

    We’d have to do a lot of remapping, creation of keys and ledgers and define allocation rules. Because of the existing configuration, doing all of this will have impacts on the price structure of product (segment) and their reporting.

    So they decided not to go ahead.

    I’d like to convey my gratitude to all who took the time and effort to reply to this discussion.

    Sincerely,

    Jacob

    Hi Jacob,

    Does your profit center and plant is same? If yes, then define default account assignment for the cost element in OKB9 with valuation area mandatory. Here you have to maintain profit center for each valuation area. Based on this the system will auto default the profit center when the GL got posting. However, you can also try to create substitution in GGB1 based on plant/BA for the profit center.

    • Hi Jacob,

      If you have maintained settings in VKOA, then when you create a sale order the system will get the profit center from the material master in it. So the discount GL get PC from the sale order, when you create a billing document. Hence check your settings in material master.

      Regards,

    Hi Jacob

    a discount is posted when you do SD billing. It should naturally flow to the same PC as sales revenue

    if it is not, that means you guys have some kind of substitution in place to over write it. Please check that
