Intercompany process


We are using inter-company process in our organisation. We are facing one where price difference between good issue and goods receipt.


Material is maintained different valuation types in the supplying plant and it is stored in different prices. But in the receiving plant material has been maintained only plant level. When STO raised receiving plant not aware which valuation type stock is going to in the delivery? So PO has been raised at plant level moving average price. Due to this there is price difference between GI and GR value in the Inter-company STO. I have explored one option where we can set as GR based GI value indicator but it is activated for only intra company stock transfer not for inter-company.

Please anybody come across this issue and any suggestion how to fix this issue.

Thanks in advance.

    Please go through the KBA: 1860315 - Error in P101 price calculation when creating a STO which explains the system design and the work around. In addition, refer the note: 1677707 - Determining the valuation type for stock transport orders at the time of GI

    • Hi, Normally there will be a transfer pricing concept when there is a purchase with in the same company between two company codes , which will make to see that such types of diff arises out of the purchases . Transfer pricing deals such kinds if issues which make the PO price equvallant of the Delivery issue price and vice versa and at the same time you can have a inter company mark up value for the material too which covers the difference between the two prices . does your clent is on trading ? Regards,

    I don't think this discrepancy is an issue. This is standard behavior. When you do goods issue, the price will be copied from material valuation data. In your case, the price is 120 Pound. When you do goods receipt, the price will be copied from the STO PO. In your case, the price is 100 Pound. Why you're looking for clear these balances since one company code valuation is different from other company code.

    • Hi Rosh

      In this scenario receiving company is benefiting of 20 pounds and they can ignore clearing the difference.

      In other case where PO raised for 120 but supplying plant GI cost is only 100 pounds. When we make GNR system posts the GR/IR account with 120 whereas we need to pay only 100 pounds. I think in this scenario do we need make any adjustment?

      Hi Sai

      Our client is not on trading. They client have worldwide warehouses where material stored in different valuation level with different prices and stock will be moved across the plants.
