Inbound shipment costs accruals before PO goods receipt?

Dear all,

I would like to know if there is a possibility to generate an inbound shipment cost document before the goods receipt?

Actually we are buying material that is transported by train. It takes about 20 days to receive the goods at our plant but the rail carrier will send the invoice before we receive the goods. The issue is that we don't have any accrual and we are unable to pay the carrier in time. In addition we cannot do invoice verification in MIR7.

For information we use PO, Inbound delivery, Inbound shipment, Shipment cost document.

Is there any solution in SAP?

Thanks

    Hi Anthony,

    Could you please specify the error message which you would be getting while trying to create a SCD to check it further?

    Thanks,
    Balaji

    Anthony, I am assuming that the shipment cost is calculated as a "delivery cost" which accrual is carried into the purchase order as planned delivery. What I would look at is introducing a process where:

    • Perform a goods receipt of the inbound delivery into valuated goods receipt stock using movement type (107)
    • When goods arrive at the distribution center perform the final goods receipt (109)

    The movement type (107) will perform the financial posting but not the inventory posting.

    This is called Origin at Acceptance. I realize the inbound delivery usually comes configured with the 101 movement type. However this can be updated through enhancements and different category keys.

    Regards,

    Steve
