PRD-Auto Post price differences to different price difference accounts

Dear all,

As I know, in Account Automatic Posting, the transaction key PRD is for Cost price Difference.

If I want to post price differences to different price difference accounts in the case of goods receipts for different cost in purchase orders, How can I configure it?

Example, in PO, there is 2 costs: Freight (F) and Insurance(I) are key in as Condition Type.

I would like to post price difference from F to account XXX, and price difference from I to account YYY.

Can I configure like this?

Thank you very much for your support!

    Hello,

    What is price difference.

    Price differences arise for materials valuated at standard price in the case of all movements and invoices with a value that differs from the standard price. Examples: goods receipts against purchase orders (if the PO price differs from the standard pricedardpreis), goods issues in respect of which an external amount is entered, invoices (if the invoice price differs from the PO price and the standard price).

    Price difference in genereal will not trigger for the materials with price control V ( Moving average price) but however

    Price differences can also arise in the case of materials with moving average price if there is not enough stock to cover the invoiced quantity. In the case of goods movements in the negative range, the moving average price is not changed. Instead, any price differences arising are posted to a price difference account

    For you example, you have you are having PO with Freight (F) and Insurance(I), these are called pallned delivery costs, not Price difference,

    so create two different condition type for Freight and insurance and assign two different G/L accounts for these condition types in account determination.

    While posting system will hit perticular G/L acconut.

      Hi Mahesh Naik,

      Price differences arise for materials valuated at standard price in the case of all movements and invoices with a value that differs from the standard price.

      E.g:

      Material A, standard price = 100,

      In PO: Material A, Qty = 1,

      - Net price = 100

      - Freight = 15

      - Insurance = 5

      Then GR -> the price difference come from F & I

      Can I post 2 difference into 2 different account?

      Thanks,

      CH

    Dear Cao,

    Have you ever found a solution for this?

    My customer has the same exact requirement.

    We have solved it for price differences posted at invoice receipt, but we haven't fiund a solution for prices differences at goods receipt.

    Thanks a lot for your feedback,

    Stef
