    Hi Hoo Laa,

    1)what is the difference between inter-company sales and Cross-company sales??

    Ans: These Two are same process with different names. In which we sales product from one company code to another,

    2)What is the general document flow and config. when in below 2 cases:

    Suppose the 2 company code under same sap client system, then what kinds of company code,plant config within the system for inter-compan and cross-company, and finally what kind of document flow will it be in the system.

    Ans:

    Business case: -

    Customer orders goods to company code/Sales organization A (Eg.4211/4211).Sales org 4211 will accept and punch the order in the system with sold to party as end customer code in the system. Company code/sales org B (Eg.4436) will deliver the goods to end customer and raise an intercom any billing on 4211 with reference to delivery. This can happen only after 4211 raises invoice to his end customer to whom the material has been delivered by 4436.

    SPRO Customization required:-

    1. Assign plant of delivering company code (Eg.SI81) to sales org/distribution channel combination of ordering company code (Eg.4211/RT)

    2. Maintain intercom any billing type as IV for sales document type OR

    3. Assign Organizational Units By Plant (Eg.SI81/4211/RT/11)

    4.Define Internal Customer Number By Sales Organization (Eg.4436 will create customer master for 4211 company code and that number will be maintained in this relationship:-4211/231)

    5. Automatic posting to vendor account (Optional)

    6. Maintain pricing procedure determination for 4211/RT/A/1/RVAA01-For customer sales and billing

    Maintain pricing procedure determination for 4436/RT/A/1/ICAA01-For intercompony billing

    Master data to be maintained:-

    1. Create end customer master in company code/sales org 4211/RT/11

    2. Create customer master for 4211 company code/sales org in 4436/RT/11

    3. Maintain PR00 as price for end customer-Active in RVAA01

    4. Maintain PI01 as price which has to be paid to 4436-Statistical in RVAA01

    5. Maintain IV01 as inter-company Price-Active in ICAA01

    Process:-

    1. Create OR with sold to party as end customer.

    2. Plant to be selected is delivering plant belonging to different company code. With this selection system will treat this order as intercomany sales.

    3. Pricing procedure is RVAA01

    4. With reference to this order delivery will be created from the delivering plant and post the goods issue for this delivery.

    5. Ordering sales org will create billing document F2 with reference to delivery for end customer.

    6. Delivering sales org will create intercompany billing IV with reference to delivery document.

    Suppose the 2 company code is under diff sap system, then what kind of doc flow in each sap system for inter-company and cross-company sales process???

    Almost same as above,

    Thanks,

    Raja

    Hi,

    Basically there are totally Three types of scenarios

    1. Intra Compnay Stock Transport Order

    In this type of scenario, the stock is transfered between Two Plants which are under the same Compnay Code. The document type used here is UB. Here in this scenario the owner ship on the stock is not changed thats way there will not be any Invoice. The process as follows

    a. Create Purchase Order with document type UB - ME21N

    b. Create Replenishment Delivery with Document type NL - VL10B

    c. Picking and PGI - VL02N

    Now stock will be shown in Transit, you can check this using T.Code MB5T.

    d. Do MIGO to receive the stock into ordering plant.

    2. Inter Compnay Stock Transport Order

    This is called as Cross Compnay STO. Here the stock is sent from one plant to another plant which are in two different Compnay codes. That means the Ownership on the stock is changed in this scenario, that way there will be Intercompnay Invoice IV is reaised. Here the stock is just moved to one plant to another plant but not to any customer.

    The Process is as follows

    a. Create a PO using type NB - ME21N

    b. Create a Cross Compnay Replenishment delivery using type NLCC - VL10B

    c. Picking and PGI in VL02N

    d. Inter Compnay Invoice IV is raised by Supplying Compnay code to the Ordering Compnay Code - VF01

    for this a customer created in Supplying Compnay who represents the Ordering Compnay and the invoice is raised against to that customer.

    e. MIGO to receive the stock in Ordering Plant

    f. MIRO to do invoice verification and do Vendor account update. This also can be done by EDI triggering, to update the Vendor Account. That means with this step, ordering compnay will update into its vendor account that he has to give certain amount to the compnay who supplied the stock.

    3. Inter Compnay Customer Sales

    This is similer to the 2 process, but here instead of sending to Plant we will send the stock directly to Customer of other compnay code.

    The process is as follows

    a. Customer raises normal sales order in another compnay code of type OR - VA01

    b. But if the plant of that compnay does not have stock, then in the order the plant is changed to other compnay code plant.

    c. Delivery is created in supplying Compnay against this Order - VL01

    d. Picking and PGI is done - VL02N

    e. But the stock is sent direclty to customer from supplying plant.

    f. Ordering compnay will raise normal invoice F2 to the customer

    g. Supplying Compnay will raise Intercompnay invoice IV to the Ordering Compnay.

    But for all these process there are some configurations can be done, like

    the material should be extended to both the plants

    a customer is created in supplying plant who represents the ordering plant so that IV can be generated to that customer.

    Supplying Plants should be linked to ordering Sales Org and Distribution channel. etc.

    Hope this is clear.

    Thanks

    Praveen
