Cost Element and Internal Order Issue


Hello SAP Gurus,

We have a requirement from client to automatically book recovery with every item shipped. we want to collect the recovery on an internal order and book the same in 55xxxx account. If I maintain the internal order in the scheduled sales order, I am NOT able to post an invoice, because account 40xxxx (not a cost element) cannot be booked with cost object. And we are not supposed to create 40xxxx acc as cost element. The problem is that I want to book 40xxxx without internal order, but 59550 with internal order in the same line item of Sales Order. If im removing internal order from sales order, im able to book the invoice but acc 55xxxx ia getting posted without internal order. I tried with both real and statistical internal order but its not working at all. Invoice is not getting posted if there is internal order assigned. Can any of you please suggest me the possible option ?

For example: Sales order 45xxx

Accounting entries after creating billing:

GL A/c # GL Acc name poting key Amount

10xxxx Customer ABC Dr 100.00

40xxxx Sales a/c Cr 80.00-

21xxxx VAT output Cr 20.00-

55xxxx Recovery Cr 1.00- to be booked in IO

405xxx Re-class Dr 1.00

I would appreciate your response.

Thank you,
