Price difference account in Stock transfer

Hi All,

As per below scenario,

  1. Material used is valuated, Qty maintained, Price control- MAP
  2. STO is created without delivery in 2014.
  3. Goods issue(351 - movement type) is done in 2014.
  • Stock Acct-Products - Debit (3,000.00)
  • Stock Acct-Products - Credited (3,000.00-)

4.Reversal of Goods issue(352 - mvt type) done in 2017 and the accounting entries

  • Stock Acct-Products - Debit (3,000.00)
  • Stock Acct-Products - Credited (1,761.13-)
  • Price Diff.Account - Credit (1,238.87-)

Why price difference account has been hit in this case with transaction key AUM?

Please advise

    hello,

    Standard behavior by system. Have a look on below KBA.

    For transfer postings, the value of the goods movement is calculated from the stock posting of the stock issued.Most important Notes: 0071124, 0180503

    212286 - Overview note: Valuation during goods movements

    Best regards

      Hi Shailesh,

      Than you for the reply.

      I have gone through the SAP note but failed to understand why there is a price difference.

      Can anybody help me with this issue?

    Hi Shailesh,

    Could you please help to understand how invoice will come into picture in this case?

    This is an issue with the reversal of goods issue in different period.

    Thanks

    Hello,

    You didn't read it in depth.

    In MMBE, there is no sufficient stock to cover the invoiced qt.( in 2017).

    -->If the stock of material is less than the quantity specified in the invoice because goods were withdrawn between goods receipt and invoice receipt, then the price variance for the missing quantity is posted to a price difference account.

    Go to OBYC for the account posting in MM to see what triggers postings to PRD.

    Please go with help.sap link to understand more.
