STO Return process under GST

Dear All,

We have a scenario in STO process where the goods transferred from Supplying Plant to Depot plant is partially damaged in transit and is returned from halfway without reaching Depot plant. How do we map this scenario in SAP?

Step 1- ME21N---STO-PO

Step 2- VL10B

Step 3- VL02N

Step 4- VF01

If I reverse the Invoice and GI, it would return the entire stock and show wrong stock. while I just want to return half good quantity and write of the other half(damaged ones).

Please suggest.

    You need to update in SAP as if Depot received the material and rejected the entire lot. So Depot has to do return process and delivering plant to do virtual MIGO and subsequently, scrap the quantity that has already been damaged in transit.

      Thank you so much for this solution but my client is not agreeing due to Insurance audit whcih should show the goods was returned back to supplying plant. Also If i do VL09 to reverse the PGI, it would return th entire stock but they want to return only partial stock(good stock)

    the return process does not apply as the goods have never reached anyone.

    partial cancellations are not possible for a goods issue of a delivery, hence cancel your invoice, do your VL09 to cancel the entire goods issue, then do a new goods issue with the quantity that received its destination.

    Also decide what you need to do with the damaged part that will show as your inventory after the total cancellation. You can either scrap it, or you may sell it to the one who is responsible for the damage.

    Wonder why this question has GST in its subject as you did not come back to that in the body of your question.

    • would you expect that this changes anything for the goods receipt or the cancellation of the goods issue?

      It is not possible to to do a regular goods issue from in-transit stock, that is not foreseen, hence you have to either receive everything or to cancel it, otherwise the business case cannot be closed technically in SAP.

      with a goods issue is the quantity and value already written to the receiving plant , leaving the goods in transit would not change anything accounting wise.
