Booking if goods receive in Italy - special italian bookkeeping rules


actually, we are implementing SAP Business One on a server in Germany for our italien company. During the integration tests, we found out that the booking of goods received in Italy is different to the booking on other european countries.

It seems, that when the goods received are booked, the system books the quantity to the stock, but not the value.

Has anyone a documenation ((in german, english or italian language) about the specialities of booking of logistic processes (material movements) in Italy ?

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Michael,

    There is no difference in the way the goods are booked in Germany or in Italy.

    Please check the setting under:

    Administration -> System Initialisation -> Company Details -> Basic Initialisation -> 'Default Valuation Method' (version 2005) or 'Use Continuous Stock' (version 2007)

    If this is not ticked that means that this company has not been set up to manage Continuous stock, in this case there will be no posting to stock when a Goods Receipt is done.

    In stead with this setting Business One will work as a periodic database and all accounting postings to Stock will have to be done manually after a manual stock take has been performed.

    If the above setting is indeed ticked and the posting is done but to the wrong account. Please note that this is not because of the localisation but rather a result of the account determination done for this item.

    also note, the setting mentioned above is not reversable.

    Let us know if you need further assistance.

    Hope it helps,
