Company code without a plant

Hi all,

I have got the question if it is possible to have a Company Code (CC) without a Plant linked to it, and still be able to sell via the sales organisation that is linked to that Company Code. So the situation is as follows: there is a Belgium CC, Plant, Storage location, Sales area (organization, distr channel, division), Purchasing organization, and Purchasing group. So this is all in Belgium. Now they want to create a Sales organization (+distr channel and divisions) in France and let the revenue be recognised in France. They will still be delivering from the Belgium Plant tho, so the France Distribution channel (Sales Organisation and Distribution Channel) is linked to the Plant from Belgium. See also the attached overview.

So my question is if this is a valid solution that's possible in SAP, or is a Plant mandatory when we want to sell in a different country?

    It possible to map this scenario with one company code without plant creation in France.

    You will create the two sales organizations (Belgium and France) but one plant (Belgium). Material master to be extended to both sales organizations as delivering plant in Belgium.

    While creating a sales order in France choose the France sales organization data and plant is Belgium. After the delivery process completed bill ot customer against France sales organization.

    This process called third-party delivery in SAP.

    Best Regards,
