    Hi,

    Go through the explanation given below with test cases.

    Business case: -

    Customer orders goods to company code/Sales organization A (Eg.4211/4211).Sales org 4211 will accept and punch the order in the system with sold to party as end customer code in the system. Company code/sales org B (Eg.4436) will deliver the goods to end customer and raise an intercom any billing on 4211 with reference to delivery. This can happen only after 4211 raises invoice to his end customer to whom the material has been delivered by 4436.

    SPRO Customization required:-

    1. Assign plant of delivering company code (Eg.SI81) to sales org/distribution channel combination of ordering company code (Eg.4211/RT)

    2. Maintain intercom any billing type as IV for sales document type OR

    3. Assign Organizational Units By Plant (Eg.SI81/4211/RT/11)

    4.Define Internal Customer Number By Sales Organization (Eg.4436 will create customer master for 4211 company code and that number will be maintained in this relationship:-4211/231)

    5. Automatic posting to vendor account (Optional)

    6. Maintain pricing procedure determination for 4211/RT/A/1/RVAA01-For customer sales and billing

    Maintain pricing procedure determination for 4436/RT/A/1/ICAA01-For intercompony billing

    Master data to be maintained:-

    1. Create end customer master in company code/sales org 4211/RT/11

    2. Create customer master for 4211 company code/sales org in 4436/RT/11

    3. Maintain PR00 as price for end customer-Active in RVAA01

    4. Maintain PI01 as price which has to be paid to 4436-Statistical in RVAA01

    5. Maintain IV01 as inter-company Price-Active in ICAA01

    Process:-

    1. Create OR with sold to party as end customer.

    2. Plant to be selected is delivering plant belonging to different company code. With this selection system will treat this order as intercomany sales.

    3. Pricing procedure is RVAA01

    4. With reference to this order delivery will be created from the delivering plant and post the goods issue for this delivery.

    5. Ordering sales org will create billing document F2 with reference to delivery for end customer.

    6. Delivering sales org will create intercompany billing IV with reference to delivery document.

    I hope this helps you.Reward points if solution is useful.

    Regards,

    Dear Sinan,

    Third-Party Order Processing with Shipping Notification:


    This SAP best practice supports passing a customer order to a third-party vendor, who then ships the goods directly to the customer, bills you, and sends you a shipping notification. The shipping notification received is entered as a dummy goods receipt in consumption. This approach allows you to create the customer invoice before you receive the incoming invoice from the vendor.

    The following functions are provided to support the Third Party With Shipping Notification:

    Order


    When the order is created, the specification of material numbers, quantity and conditions takes place at item level. As the material is not available on stock, a purchase requisition is created directly within the sales order.

    Purchase Order Processing


    The purchase requisition can already be automatically assigned during creation. If not, it is possible to assign the purchase requisition manually. The purchase order is created with reference to the purchase requisition. Quantity and material are transferred from the sales order. The purchase order price can also now be determined via the condition records.

    Shipping Notification


    When the vendor has sent the material to the customer, they will normally send you a shipping notification, which, amongst other things, contains the exact quantity of material sent. You have the possibility to enter this shipping notification into the system in the form of a dummy goods receipt. It will be posted directly in consumption so that no stocks are created. The quantity of goods received then updates the quantity to be invoiced in the sales order. Therefore, it is possible to create the customer invoice before you receive the incoming invoice from the vendor.

    Billing Documents


    The billing documents are created on the basis of the order. Since the vendor might not deliver the exact quantity ordered, quantity adjustment takes place via the shipping notification.

    Vendor Invoice Verification


    The vendor invoice verification can take place after billing. The variance in purchasing can be updated in Controlling using retroactive billing.

    Controlling


    The revenue and costs will be posted to CO-PA using the billing document.

    Third-Party Order Processing Without Shipping Notification:


    This SAP best practice supports passing a customer order to a third-party vendor, who then ships the goods directly to the customer and bills you. The vendor does not send a shipping notification. The incoming invoice from the vendor updates the billing quantity, so that you can create the customer-billing document only after entering the invoice from the vendor.

    The following functions are provided to support Third Party Without Shipping Notification building block:

    Order:


    When the order is created, the specification of material numbers, quantity and conditions takes place at the item level. As the material is not available on stock, a purchase requisition is created directly within the sales order.

    Purchase Order Processing:


    The purchase requisition can be automatically assigned during creation. If this is not the case, it is possible to assign the purchase requisition manually. The purchase order is created with reference to the purchase requisition. The amount and the type of material are transferred from the sales order. The purchase order price can be determined via the condition records.

    Vendor Invoice Verification:


    The vendor invoice verification is to be performed before customer billing. The quantity of the invoice updates the quantity to be invoiced in the sales order.

    Billing Documents:


    The billing documents created are based on the sales order. Since the vendor might not deliver the exact quantity ordered, quantity adjustment takes place via the vendor's invoice.

    Controlling:


    The revenue and costs will be posted to CO-PA via the billing document

    Stock Transfer Order:

    Whenever you need to transfer the materials from one plant to another plant belonging to one company or belonging to two company code stock transfer order is raised by the delivering company.

    Transfer of goods from one location to another location,it may be between plants within the same company code or in different company code's plants.

    within the company code, bet plants, receiving plant will raise the STO in Supplying/issuing plant-ME21n,

    Supplying plant will deliver the goods to receiving plants , then we need to pick n post the Goods Issue-VL02n, nw when we can observe that the STO qty will be added into receiving plant and reduced in Delievering plant.

    To do this, we need do prior customizatin in SPRO-IMG,-material should be created in both plants( receiving & Supplying)

    -maintaing the stock only in supplying plant

    -create a dummy customer in supplying plant's sales area(if u have one sales area, create in tat comp code n sales area)

    -Assign this customer number to receiving plant's details along with the sales area,

    -Assign the STO doc type(UB) to Supplying plant, along with checking rule

    -Assign the Del type (NL/NLCC) to Supplying n receiving plant.

    You create a STO from MM route i.e., ME21N and then enter the details of the supplying,receiving plant and the materials.Once you complete the STO,then it goes for a delivery followed by an intercompany invoice.

    Remember that the Material should be there in BOTH supplying and receving plant.

    Internal Procurement (Stock Transfer With Delivery):

    In a company, goods movements do not only occur in the form of goods receipts and goods issues. Depending on the organization of the company (for example, decentralized storage) and its sales policy, internal stock transfers might also be necessary.

    The stock transfer with delivery is a plant to plant scenario. You are posting a goods issue in plant BP02 and a goods receipt in plant BP01.

    This type of stock transfer can only be carried out from unrestricted-use stock of the issuing plant to unrestricted-use stock of the receiving plant.

    You post the placement into storage at the receiving plant in a second step. Only then is the event completed and the transferred quantity part of unrestricted-use stock.

    Functions:

    • Creating a Planned Independent Requirement

    • Creating a stock transport order in plant BP01

    • Generating a delivery in plant BP02

    • Picking of the material and posting the goods issue in the delivering plant

    • Posting the goods receipt in the receiving plant

    Note: The quantity posted from stock is first of all managed as stock in transit of the receiving plant. Only once the goods receipt has been posted is the quantity posted to the unrestricted-use stock of the receiving plant. This enables the quantity "on the road" to be monitored.

    The transfer posting is valuated at the valuation price of the material in the issuing plant.

    Delivery costs can be entered in the stock transport order.

    Internal Procurement (Stock Transfer without Delivery):

    The cross-plant, internal procurement of materials can be carried out within one company code (intercompany) or by using several company codes (cross company). This process can be dealt with using standard functions such as material requirements planning, purchase requisition, stock transport order, transportation planning and the handling of internal deliveries.

    The following functions are provided to support the Internal Stock Transfer without Delivery:

    • Create Stock Transport Order

    • Post goods issue for stock transport order

    • Post goods receipt for stock transport order

    Note: Quantity "on the road" can be monitored

    Delivery costs can be entered in the stock transport order

    Internal Procurement (Cross-Company Stock Transfer):

    You post a stock transfer from company code to company code the same way as you post a stock transfer from plant to plant, except that both plants belong to different company codes.

    During the stock transfer, two accounting documents are created in addition to the material document:

    -An accounting document for the removal from storage at the issuing company code

    -An accounting document for the placement into storage at the receiving company code

    The stock posting is offset against a company code clearing account.

    To display the value of the cross-company-code stock in transit with a report, choose Environment à Stock à Stock in transit Cc.

    The following functions are provided to support the cross company stock transfer:

    • Create sales order to customer

    • Run single-level MRP

    • Creating a purchase order

    • Creating delivery

    • Picking and post goods issue

    • Posting goods receipt

    • Create inter-company billing document

    • Invoice receipt

    • Create delivery, picking and post goods issue to customer

    • Billing

    Notes: The issuing plant enters a delivery for the stock transport order and a billing document. This is an inter-company billing document (billing type YBIV). Pricing takes place as normal.

    When the goods arrive, the receiving plant posts a goods receipt for the purchase order. The unrestricted-use stock increases and an accounting document is created.

    The invoice is checked with reference to the purchase order.
