Plants abroad (WIA) - returns

I have a question of how you deal with the situation of returns in WIA (plant abroad) process.

Let's say your company is located in Country_A and there you have your "main plant". In Country_B you have a plant, for which you use Plant abroad functionality.

You create a purchase order with 100kg Material_A and transfer it from plant in Country_A to plant in Country_B. After creating the PO you create the delivery using VL10H and finally book invoice with VF01/VF04. After the goods have arrived at the destination you notice, that there is a problem with for example quality. Now you want to send Material_A back to Plant_A in Country_A.

Do you make a cancellation of above created documents, do you use same document and delivery types to process the return (like a stocktransfer from Country_B to Country_A), or do you set "returns" flag in PO? Or did you create new document and delivery types to process the returns....?

The main issue is to get the right tax and to be able to process intrastat etc correctly...just transfering stock is not the problem...

Best regards,
