MIRO posts into inventory account

Hi Gurus,

In SAP, MIRO has strangely posted into an inventory account rather than GR/IR account.

The scenario is that I have created a Purchase Order with the account assignment category 'P' and Quantity 1 as I wanted to make a posting into WBS.

While doing GR (MIGO) with movement type 101, I created a GR posting with Quantity 1 and that debited the Inventory Account and credited the GR/IR Account

Then I posted the IR with Quantity 1 and that credited the Vendor and debited the GR/IR account.

Another User did not know that IR was already created for the PO, he created the second IR with Quantity 1 and this time, it credited the Vendor and debited the Inventory Account for no reason.

Later on, when I reversed the second IR with MR8M, then the credit document which was created as a result debited the Vendor and credited the GR/IR Account instead of the Inventory Account, making this issue more complex.

My question is that why the second IR posted into inventory account instead of GR/IR account and secondly how can I fix this scenario??

I have read several threads on wrong MIRO GL postings but I could not find the solution from those threads.

Looking forward to hear. Thanks in Advance.

Couple of OSS notes are there which have a clear explanation how does system calculate amount to post a reversal of invoice. Read this KBA 1609927 - MR8M / Credit Memo postings and 2523348 - Posting logic: cancelling/reversing an invoice/credit memo and so on related documents.

To resolve this, you may cancel both invoices and then post only one invoice.

Thanks Dibyendu. I have gone through that and that is quite helping to understand the logic of credit memo, however, I am still trying to figure out why the posting was made into inventory account rather than GR/IR account which is clearing account in MIRO. I actually have got the message of Price Discrepancy in SAP VIM when I processed the invoice but I checked OBYC for PRD and there was no account mentioned. The only accounts which are mentioned are in GBB.

For the price discrepancy, it depends upon your material's stock availability. I assume system doesn't have sufficient stock for the material which you have posted goods receipt earlier.

The inventory account got effected during second invoice as because GR/IR account has already need cleared with your first invoice.

Actually, I am using non-material into PO i.e., account assignment category 'P'., so I believe the posting is not for BSX but for GBB.

Then it is expense account not inventory account.

Rana - there are many possibilities; you can post directly to a GL account in MIRO (if configured)

To fix you can also do a subsequent debit/credit in MIRO

Are you sure your accountants have reviewed and traced all accounting documents?

Thanks Tammy. I am actually going to do this but G/L tab is hidden in MIRO. Do you have any idea how to make it visible through TC: SHD0?

Hi,

In addition to above comments, you may maintain the tolerance limits in OMR6 and activate double invoice check functionality to avoid this issue in future.

Thanks Prasoon. That's fine. I will do that but my question is that why the posting was made into inventory account rather than GR/IR account in MIRO?

1. Thanks guys for your answers. Actually, what is happening that GR-based IV is checked but if Invoice is created before GR, then IR posts into inventory or expense account and that posting also goes to WBS and this is where the discrepancy is. I will test this after unchecking the GR-based IV to make sure that this does not happen in the future.

2. Now, as a solution,I am trying to create a Credit invoice from MIRO and putting the GL account manually into G/L tab to clear both Credit invoice and Invoice together.

I will update if both work fine.
