Intercompany Posting with CO-PA and ML


We are trying to establish the Direct Intercompany Posting with 301 movement.

"OBYA" customizing helps us to solve the account assignments.

But there is the problem with CO-PA integration and Material Ledger (ML). Since, Intercompany Material document and Invoice are not linked, PA integration and ML will not be updated properly with the Invoice prices.

Is there any standard way or enhancement to run CO-PA and ML properly in this process? Can we -somehow- create the invoice with reference to the Material Document?

Best regards,

    if you want intercompany stock transfer with delivery/billing and ML influence you should use the NLCC process. It is a mix out of stock transfer po and normal po with delivery, billing while the billing document which generates an Idoc will be posted on the PO so that you have an influence on material stock value in the case of price differences.

      NLCC is -as far as i know- an intercompany STO (Stock Transfer Order-PO). What you offer is to create an STO, then do the stock transfers with reference to that STO document. Am i right?

      But what i need is to move the stock with 301 without any reference PO or STO. With OBYA customizing, we can do the 301 posting between different company plants. Invoice must be created later with reference to that 301 document and must update the ML and COPA...

    If you want to do cross company material transfer with individual pricing ... you can only use the NLCC process. If you use movement type 301 with cross company code posting functionality you have to accept that only the material movement has influence on ml because the system does expects any further postings.

    Nevertheless you can create a formal invoice document by using the FI correspondence function which is assigned to the FI Document of the 301 Movement. But you want post it because the posting in the target is already done by the cross company posting (MAT->Clearing|Clearing->MAT). If the valuation prices between the plants differs a price difference will be posted in the target.

    • To explain the whole process would be too much now ... but if you go through the customizing tree you should get it

      Those documents can be created automatically or manually out of the FI document.

      I will try to help if you specific question.

      Are the two company codes different legal entities? Then you should get an advise by an Auditor I do not think that this process will meet legal requirements. (e. g. what will you do with VAT, Export control)
