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

    When you create a P0 you have to use an account assignment cat. Based on the account assignment you have other options to fill in the accounting information.

    When you have fill the account assignment then you have only to fill in your clearing account. (costcenter, ... is then hidden and not requered)

    These are examples:

    A Asset

    K Cost center

    F Order

    F Order

    H Post to BalanceSheet

      Hi Alicia,

      With goods received it create the posting Assets/ GR-IR account. There is no extra "store" posting between.

      When you create the PO you can create it without account assignement (asset number) and later when you know the asset number to fill this in. Only you can not make a postings when the account assignment is not compleet.

      An other option is to use investement orders / projects, collect your costs from your PO there and setlle monthly to an AUC and finaly to the asset.
