Freight Provisions

Hi,

Normally where-ever freight conditions are there, we maintain them in the condition types of the vendor and the same would be carried to the PO. At the time of GR, we can see the following accounting postings

Raw Materials MM 3000

GR/IR clearg.acct.MM -2500

Freight provision -500

At the time of IV, we do MIRO referencing the PO for the the entire amount it suggests and we could see some price variance.

Now we got a requirement where-in the Invoices for the Freight charges would need to be paid seperately when it was presented by different vendor (Freight provider). As we are looking for a more detailed approach, Could someone tell me basically what needs to be done. Do I have to use any partner functions or is there any way to seperate the invoice verification process?

Many thanks in advance,

Kelly

    hi

    you are not required to create two vendors.

    while doing miro select opton as

    1."Goods/Services only" for Invoice entry of Main vendor and

    2."Planned Delivery Cost" for Freight vendor.

    hi

    while making PO.

    while entering freight condition , select the freight condition type and click on condition detail , there at the bottom right in the vedor enter the freight vendor , to whom you want to pay.

    Then Do MIGo

    and while doing IV select planned delivey cost and enter the purchase order no.

    You will see that freight will appear.

    Enter and Post

    Regards,

      Sorry, I did not mentioned before but we use LPA scheduling agreements instead of a normal PO. Also we only use FRA2 (Frgt Provisions %) so we normally create them in MEKE per vendor. So do I have to create a seperate vendor for Freight and then map that in the condition detals? Also do we have to do it for every vendor for whom the freight payments need to be seperated? And just to sum it up, we don't need to do anything in the partner functions?

      Regards,

    Hi,

    Go to M/06, here for freight condition type for e.g. for FRA1, keep following controls;

    Condition Control - A

    Calculation Type - A

    Condition category - B (Delivery cost)

    Accrual indicator active and Vendor in GR as 2 (Always Possible)

    In M/08 (Calculation Schema), assign the Accrual Key against the freight condition and also do the necessary account determination in OBYC

    Now in PO (ME21N), under Conditions Tab, enter value against this condition type and select this condition type and click on "Detail" button and maintain the Freight vendor vendor here.

    At the time of MIRo, select opton as "Goods/Services only" for Invoice entry of Main vendor and "Planned Delivery Cost" for Freight vendor.

    Hai,

    1.In PO - Item data - Conditions tab - select the freigh tconditions - go to details - enter the freight vendor for the freight condiiton. Suppose if u forget to maintain this in the PO, then you can maintain this at the GR if In M/06, for the freight condition type in the control data 2 - maintain 2 - entry always possible in the Vendor in GR check box is maintained.

    2.In MIRO w r to PO reference - Slect the planned delivery costs at the indicator then you can do the LIV for the freight vendor.
