Manual Entries for Sales Documents

369 Views Last edit Dec 19, 2017 at 07:57 PM 3 rev

Dear Community,

I’m wondering if anyone could help me with a problem we have every so often with multiple customers.

The issue is about manual entry for Sales Documents (088). We use this type of entry to book costs on projects integrated with sales scenario. When we enter this type of entry the cost is not taking into consideration in the “PoC” calculation, costs are also not available for invoicing. The revenue recognition is then underestimated.

The cost is not redirected to the WIP account, probably the reason why it is not flowing through invoicing and rev rec. And you can't book into the WIP account as the G/L is mapped with a “Accruals or Clearings” type.

We use manual entry for sales document type for multiple reasons; costs booked onto the wrong project that is being reclass, cost coming from an external system, reclass from a prepaid account.

So far, we’ve managed to find a workaround by entering an account payable for example, which increase the level of work of the accounting team. But now we are facing a scenario where we cannot use this workaround.

Is there an existing way to change this behaviour (config) that I am not aware of?

I would like to understand why the system is designed this way.

Thank you for your consideration,



Master Data

  • -Project Integrated with Sales
  • -Accrual Method: 108 - Recognize using cost-to-cost project POC

Manual Entry :

As the cost flows directly to P & L, well it is not considered in the PoC Calculation.

It is also not available for invoicing
