Intracompany - Movement with plants abroad

Dear Community,

I found and read different threads and blogs etc about the subject "Intra Company Transfers" and the one that fits the best for me is this one:

https://blogs.sap.com/2008/12/17/eu-tax-reporting-with-plants-abroad-functionality/

The point A) Intra Company Stock Transfer has a great description of the flow I need, but there's just one point I don't understand that I would like to ask you. I quote the blog:

(...)

8. With this implementation, the new Intra Stock Transfer process will be as follows:

i. Intra Company Purchase Order (UB)

ii. Replenishment Delivery (NL)

iii. Goods Receipt against Purchase Order (MIGO)

iv. Plants Abroad Invoice (WIA)

v. MIRO against Purchase Order.

(...)

And my question is: WHY DO WE NEED TO USE "MIRO"?

I did customized the “Plants abroad” and, what happens to me when I test is…

After the (i) UB, we GI the (ii) NL (we get a material document) and thereafter we could issue the (iv) WIA Invoice (acc posting with WIA1, 2 and 3). After the GI is done we could also (iii) GR (material document).

The GI and the GR update material master data in terms of quantity and value per plant – depending on the “material type” configuration.

As I try to execute MIRO I get the message - No (suitable) ítem found for purchase order “xxxxxxxx” -.

I think I get everything and I don’t need to post in MIRO, am I right? I mean, I get the movements and the quantity/value differences and I issue a Zero valued Invoice with the proper taxes on it… why should I use further MIRO?

    Hello, There is no MIRO in intracompany STO for plants abroad.

    I have worked on this design for my client, and we do not use MIRO.

    With WIA you have all the tax code postings.
