Companies stock at various vendor location in France?

Hello Expert,

We have a scenario whereas Company (in U.K) own stock ( i.e. components) are kept at various vendors location in France(through subcontracting), so whenever they gets an order from customer in France, Company informs the vendor to manufacture the final product using the same component and delivers to customers place, Company also have VAT registration number in France,( so plant should be defined there, as we have a plant aboard concept)

How can I address this scenario and keep a track of various components placed at vendors location?

Also, Can you suggest if we need to have define various plants for individual vendor to keep track of Stock or we can have one plant with various storage location for the same?

Or what will be the best approach to handle this scenario as all the above scenario to be included in Intrastat reporting?

    Plants Abroad functionality is designed only for countries without a jurisdiction code and in your case, I am not sure, how this is applicable to your client. May be, you can have a look at OSS note 1085758.

    From stock perspective, you can consider those vendors as Ship-To and explore Consignment process where it is possible to keep track of stocks.

    normal subcontracting stock can be seen in MMBE as any other stock and can also be monitored from transaction MBLB

    You can even deliver directly from the subcontractor to the customer.

    The process is explained in detail by a SAP employee in this blog:
