How to set up services in SAP ByD linked to specific GL accounts


we are busy implementing SAP BYD and are having problems setting up services linked to specific GL accounts. The business sells products but also charge ad-hoc delivery costs (transport costs) from its customers. The transport costs needs to post to Revenue and not profit and loss.

Any way to approach this?

  • Hi Jacques,

    can you please provide some more details on this requirement. Shall the ad-hoc delivery cost be posted to a balance sheet account (e.g. deferred revenue)? Or to a revenue account in the profit and loss statement (e.g. freight revenue)?

    Which cost are covered by the delivery cost? Only freight, or any additional cost?

    Best regards,

    Hi Jacques,

    In the customer invoice > Items, you will choose the service and after adding the details, click on 'Revenue Assignment' tab and choose the GL Account or GL Account Determination group which belong to Revenue assignment.

    If a certain Account determination group is not showing under the drop down for selection then go to the fine-tune activity

    Chart of Accounts: Charts of Accounts, Financial Reporting Structures, Account Determination and select <

    Edit Account Determination Groups > Group types by ledger > General Ledger expand it and select the group then you will get an option for example, to make it available in customer invoices, supplier invoices etc.,

    Hope this helps.
