sales return before invoice generation

Hi Experts,

can we take material return before invoice generation

sales order -


>delivery----


>sales return -


> actual invoice

10 nos 10 nos 2 nos 8 nos

for example sales order 10 quantity, delivery 10 quantity but 2 quantity damaged returned 2 quantity by customer good recived 2 quantity then at the end we generate invoice of 8 quantity. this is done to avoid creating credit memo a number of time.

looking for your reply

Regards,

subhro.

    Whether material is subjected to quality inspection before moving to FERT stock location ?

      Hi,

      I also faced the same problem in my earlier assignments due to quality inspections and Usage Lots. But, there is no standard option to perform Sales Returns before invoice generation, as Return itself created with reference to billing document in SAP. 1.You may reverse that delivey in VL09 and do delivery for 8 quanities after QA samplings ( or)

      2. Create partial billing with 8 quantities, eventhough delivery done for 10 quantities by giving explaination in Billing Text..

      Thanks and Regards..

    All depends on your client business scenarios

    1.If already goods had been delivered to customer found defect and returns the stock , till then invoice has been not raised this case you can take returns without generating invoice also. Only thing is need to remove reference mandatory in sales return document.But this way you can not have document flow.

    2.If goods have not been delivered , just completed PGI. Then cancel PGI and make changes in delivery and dispatch the stock.

    When there is a standard procedure to create a credit memo for returns, I dont know why you want to deviate this which is not at all recommended.

    If creating credit memo is a regular process for your client (ideally it should not be the case), you can consider giving a BDC for the same. Instead avoiding creation of credit memo is not adviceable.

    thanks
