The Commissionaire Model (aka the 3-tier Model)

Hi Guys !

Commissionaire model is commonly followed by companies in Europe to get tax advantage. In this model there is one company code(the Principal) which owns all inventory and records all sales and revenues whereas the Commissionaire company codes in different European countries face the customer and act on behalf of the Principal. The customer only sees and deals with the Commissionaire(the principal is invisible to the customer). At the end of the month, the Principal company code pays out a commission to the commissionaire company codes based on the sales made in their country.

If anybody has worked with this model, I would like to talk to you ! I'm looking for the R/3 org structure in such a model and the logistic and financial document flow.

I'm also looking for some reference SAP customers who have implemented this model.

You can call me at 610-653-6627. It is urgent !!

Thanks for your help in advance

    Hi Mohammed

    We have such a scenario and below are some guidelines

    - use of plants aborad functionality

    - one face to customer functionality

    - single point of invoice model

    These are the functionalities to be used and you need to have many sales order types for this

    Thanks
