Hi Experts
I've spend few hours to look for a solution on OSS and SCN and I've found and read a lot of threads without finding a soluztion. Our Rumania subsididiary starting form 01.01.2017 have to post and split to Stock accounts Duty costs when they import goods from extra-UE countries.
They need to Debit the costs to the different materials into the invoice, and Credit the amounts on a separate GL account.
Do I've thought to add Unplannend delivery costs during MIRO and clear these costs adding a GL acconts section of MIRO.
The solution seems work, the Unplanned cost are splitted into the several materials but incomprehensibly the system change the value of Unplanned cost set, so the invoice posted will be wrong.
Does everybody tried to do this operation ? I enclose a screen where you can see in detail how happens !
1) MIRO screen with Goods to Invoice
2) MIRO screen with Debit Unplanned cost to Split and GL account to use as Credit.
3) The system compute 13,33€ as unplanned costs instead 10€ VAT is not relevant because % for Extra-UE import il Zero.

Thanks in advance for your help.

I don't have an answer unfortunately but we have the same problem. We also need to exclude the additional G/L posting from the distribution of the unplanned costs.

I must admit I was very surprised when I saw this behaviour for the first time. A distribution of delivery costs should only concern invoice items with materials (valuated stock) but not any additional manual postings. If there is no standard configuration for this I must say that this is a design flaw.

In case you found a hint in the meantime I would much appreciate if you could share it.

We're actually about to consider an enhancement if there is an exit available in MIRO but if someone chimes in with a standard idea I'll be all ears.

Hi again,

After a thorough debug we found the BAdI MRM_UDC_DISTRIBUTE which plays a crucial role in the distribution of the unplanned costs. You should get in touch with a developer. Where we are now, it seems quite complicated to do according to our requirements.

I will now stick my neck out and claim that the distribution of the costs onto all invoice items (in case the parameter T169P-BNK eq <initial> or '1') is hard-coded standard behaviour which cannot be changed in customizing. Only a user exit can change this behaviour.

I actually wish someone will challenge my claim but I'm not optimistic.

Hi Rico

I don't know if you've solved your issue.
Finally only the simulatuion of the invoice, was wrong, because If I posted directly the invoice the Total unplanned cost splitted was not changed.
So I suppose there's a bug just in simulation feature.
I hope this can be helpful for your problem.
