Accounting entries behind good issue


I am quite new to SD and i have some questions that I hoped you will certainly answer.

1. In terms of accounting what entries does good issue generate?

2. How do you configure the accounts to be posted for good issue?

3. In case there is no inventory management set up for a company is it useful to set up outbound delivery and good issue in its sales and distribution process.

4. Is it possible to have the client account debited and a provision account credited during goods issue and when invoicing have the provision account debited and sales a/c credited. If yes how do you set up the customising for goods issue.

Thank you in advance for your answers.

    for 1/ Cost of Goods is accounted during PGI

    for 2/ THe movement type will be assigned with relevant G/L Account. Check in OMJJ the movemnet type configuration and OBYC for accounting per Chart of accounts.

    for 3 / Each movemnet type has two parameters. Quantity Updating / value updating. So you can choose which suits your needs

    for 4/ am not sure what is the purpose of cannot suggest.

    Hope this information helps

    I am not sure whether we can do it or not...

    I am not clear on it, so i cannot suggest.

    Better to search in SDN, any one of our friends in the forum will help you.

    Please note the following answers to your questions:

    1. Cost of Goods Sold A/c Dr. (Will reflect in P & L A/c Debit side)

    To Stock A/c Cr. (Will reflect on Assets side of balance sheet)

    2. Also suggested by Sai & Vasu above.

    3. If there is no Inventory Management in your company, then why do you want to create Delivery & PGI in Sales & Distribution. I have worked for a Project Based Company & we used to create Invoice directly from Sales Order. We had made settings in MM module such that while doing MIGO we would directly issue the goods to Projects. Or if there was stock in hand, that can be issued to Projects by hitting Consumption account.

    To sum it up, you dont need Delivery & PGI in Companies where there is no Inventory Management involved.

    4. In your suggestion, how would you hit the Cost of Goods Sold Account which is most important in Net profit calculations? Also it is against SAP standard functionality. Let the Customer Account hit only when Invoice is created. What is the business need to hit Customer Account while doing PGI?

    Hope this helps..

    Thank you all for your answers.

    My requirement is that my client does not emit an invoice on the date the good is issued but at the end of each month by sending a consolidated invoice.

    So in terms of accounting my client wants that during goods issue

    Dr - Clearing a/c of client that need to be invoiced

    Cr - Sales a/c

    During invoice

    Dr - Client a/c

    Cr - Clearing a/c for client.

    Does this implementation seem realizable in SAP? During goods issue is it possible to determine the Sales a/c in the same way as how it can be done during invoicing. Thank you again for your help
