Return Subcontracted Stock to Vendor Inventory Without Debiting Account

I am trying to identify a process to return a subcontracted assembly to individual components without debiting the supplier. When the goods receipt is backed out, the supplier gets debited.

    Your supplier is supposed to do a service (subcontracting) for you. If it is assembling then it might be possible to disassemble the product again and to re-use all or some parts. If your supplier does a chemical product for you then it might be impossible to put it apart again.

    You need to negotiate outside SAP how you deal with such failures, who is paying for what or who is doing which subsequent (re-)work.

    If your vendor has to pay for the materials in such cases then you may use the SD route with sales order, delivery and billing.

    If your vendor can rework for free, then does it really matter if the initial receipt is cancelled and he gets debited for the short time until he delivers an assembled material that is good?
