    The concept of Depot is in SAP treated as plant that it will be like a warehouse and not a manufacturing plant.From Depot goods will be sold to customer. Whenever the goods reach depot as well as leave the Depot it has to updated Depot Register.

    In Depot Register Opening Balance and Closing Balance will be shown according to each day's sale.

    We configure the excise for Depot by putting a check box mentioning as Depot.We do intracompany stock transfer using (UB) in ME21N where the manufacturing plant will be supplying plant and Depot Receiving Plant.

    Once the Intracompany Stock transfer is created,the next step will be doing delivery and PGI.Now the stock removes from the unrestricted stock to stock in transit -- this is called two step procedure. This Stock in transit you can see in MB5T. Once delivery is created proforma invoice has to be created. This done in VF01 using F5.This done because to flow the excise values while doing Factory excise invoice in J1IIN.

    The goods moves from factory to Depot and at Depot will do MIGO.Now Depot register can be updated during MIGO or individaully through trnasaction "J1IG" There is a transaction called J1IGA for tax exemption(non excise) cases to handle.

    The Depot Register gets updated.

    Here the Stock Transport Configuration has to be taken care. The Depot has to be created as customer for Manufacturing Plant and has to be assigned to Depot in Stock Configuration.You have to maintain excise indicator for this customer in customer master or in J1IID.

    To sell from Depot .Normal Sales order processing(VA01).Delivery creation and PGI(Vl01N).DO J1IJ for Depot Outgoing excise.and finally billing(VF01). Here sometimes customer may put forward the requirement like customer has to be charged the same excise values when it left the factory. The only link is J1iJ here where we refer the factory excise invoice during depot excise posting with this link you can achieve the same if needed.

    Please find the Business Process.

    1) Factory to Excisable Depot

    Me21N >VL10B >Vl02N >VF01(Proforma) >J1IIN

    and Depot will do MIGO.


    Excisable Depot to Customer

    VA01 >VL01N >J1IJ-->VF01.

    By doing J1IJ we will raise excise invoice to update J1IDEPOTSTOCK1

    2) Factory to Depot

    Me21N >VL10B >Vl02N >VF01(Proforma) >J1IIN

    and Depot will do MIGO.


    Depot to Customer

    VA01 >VL01N >VF01

    Also find the below link which provides all the relevant details.
