How to solve GR/IR account not balance?

A purchase order for 1000 KG of raw material was purchased. GR performed for 1000 KG followed by invoice receipt for 1000 KG. While doing quality check, 20 KG was found to be defective and was scrapped using movement type 551. A credit memo was posted via MIRO for the 20 KG. Now in PO history, there is one entry for GR (1000 KG) and two entries for IR (one for 1000 KG invoice and one for 20 KG credit memo).

This was discovered while running F.13 where there is an entry from the credit memo in the GR/IR account that cannot be cleared. All postings were done last month and so cannot be reversed. How can the entry in GR/IR account due to the credit memo be solved?

    Hi,

    Credit memo will raise, if you want to return the goods to vendor. Here you are not returning the material, then you don't need to raise credit memo. If the vendor agree to get payment for 980 KG, in that case first you raise credit memo, then post goods return with movement type 122, then scrap the goods with 551 movement type.

    Regards,

    551 scrapping is not carried out against a purchase order, this is a pure MM movement without any relation to a purchase.

    You should have debited the vendor from FI only and not using a credit memo against the purchase order.

    If you wanted a relation to your PO then you have used the return process to return the 20 kg or cancelled the GR and redo it with 980 kg.
