    Hi,

    Basically the transfer posting may involve or not involve the physical goods transfer for example in the system you might do transfer posting from quality to unrestricted, or from one store location to another.

    Whereas in stock transfer, it involves physical movement of goods, like transfer between plants under same company code or different company codes.

    Hope this wilol give a clear picture.

    Hi,

    Main difference is in stock transfer physically goods transported

    In transfer posting only type will change like from inspection to unrestricted. Physically transfer may be there or not.
