Purchasing assets without existing asset account


Hello gurus,

we would like to purchase materials and later "add" them to an asset. The problem is that the asset master cannot be created before the material has been delivered. So we have to "park" the value of the goods delivered somewhere and later settle them to the created asset account. How can this be done?

Our idea was to use a clearing account as the account to be booked in the purchasing order, but it is not possible to do a BSX-posting to that type of account (which does make sense in a way).

Any ideas?

Thank you
