SAP S4 Hana Service - Accounting Indicator usage in Service

305 Views Last edit Nov 10, 2022 at 07:53 AM 2 rev


Our client would like to report profitability for service (costs vs revenues) by different categories (e.g. general service, non-billable others, warranty, service contract). We are wondering can we achieve that splitting utilizing accounting indicator only or we need as well these different reporting categories to be created as different profit centers which are substituted from 0KEM based on the accounting indicator chosen in service line items?

Accounting indicator:

  • is not available in EC-PCA: Substitution in Sales Order (it seems we need an exit)
  • is not visible in Billing, BDR.
  • Is not a characteristic in CO-PA

Accounting indicator:

  • is visible in service order, confirmation, Goods Withdrawal accounting documents, IO settlements.

What is SAP recommended way to complete that requirement so we can easily truck costs and revenues by those different categories?

We are using single object controlling and accounting base CO-PA
