SD order related intercompany resource related billing


In an SD order related intercompany billing process we have a sales order in company A for an external customer with a line item delivered by company B (using company B's wbs in company A's project structure as the account assignment). The order is used to generate the external billing document from company A to the customer and then output type RDIV is used to generate the internal billing document from company B to company A.

Is this also possible using resource related billing so that a sales order as described above can be created using t-code DP91 (or DP93) from costs collected from wbs B?

I realise that intercompany resource related billing is possible but my understanding of this is that it requires the sales mask to be created in company B and is only be used to create the internal billing document between companies A and B (the external billing still needs to be created some other way).

Hopefully above is not an insane thing to want to do?

thanks in advance

- Michael

    based on your description, could we assume that you are talking about third-party sales process. Right?

    If yes, you can follow the normal third-party scenario available in standard solution.

    In my opinion don’t make sense to use DP* transactions when you are talking about third-party sales process with intercompany like yours. Maybe I have a wrong understanding about your scenario or description, but my suggestion to you is trying to go to simple standard process.

      Hello Fausto, thankyou for your response.

      This is not a third-party sales process - it's all inter-company. I'll try to explain :)

      The companies in our group do a lot of project related work for external customers - with costs coming from the time our employees spend on the projects. We have two types of billing:

      1) fixed fee where we maintain sales orders to bill the customer (the amount to bill is an agreed amount regardless of how much time we have spent working on a project)

      2) time and materials where we use resource related billing to collect costs and create the sales order to bill the customer (the amount to bill is variable based upon time our employees have entered against a project)

      The majority of costs we bill come from the time entered against projects and hasn't until recently involved inter-company processing.

      This works well for us as the process our finance team follows for both types of billing is the same except for the second case which requires the extra first RRB step using DP91.

      After a recent restructure we have started doing more inter-company projects, so I am hoping to achieve this with as little change to our billing process as possible.

      So far, SAP's order related inter-company billing is working well for the first type of billing (fixed fee) - it's the second type that I am struggling with and am hoping that we can use RRB to generate a sales order that can be billed in the same way.

      If we have to change our process for the second type of intercompany billing then so be it :)

      thanks again for your response.
