Wrong Accounting hits: why price difference account is getting debited

In a repetitive manufacturing for REM Backflush (MFBF) in a make-to-stock scenario, the inputs to be given are backflush quantity, material, plant, store location and production version, and the movement type is 131.

Here after posting in the MFBF transaction, the accounting entry generally should be

Finished goods acct u2013 Dr (BSX)

Increase in FGstk- CR (GBB)

But in the current situation, the accounting entrying happenning is

Price difference acct - Dr (PRD)

Increase in FGstk- CR (GBB)

And We use standard pricing control u2018Su2019. My question is why price difference account is getting debited, and not the finished goods account, and how to correct it.

Also note that this problem is only appearing in quality envoronment, while in production environment, the same thing is working properly.

    Hi

    It seems you are entering posting in a back date or future date.... Thats the reason you are getting PRD account...

    Eg: You are posting GR on 30 April as on 05 May.... Std cost exists in May but not in April.... So, you are geting the PRD on GR

    Hi Rani,

    PRD:Price difference

    Case 1: If we use Price control S in Material Master

    This transaction key (PRD) is used when any amount differences in MIRO screen difference amount posting to Price difference Account.

    Case 2: If we use Price control V in Material Master

    This transaction key (PRD) is used when any amount differences in MIRO screen, difference amount posting to Inventory Account/Stock .

    As per u r scenario u r using standard pricing control u2018Su2019.

    Change Price control u2018Su2019 to " V" .

    let me know for further assistance ...!

    Rds,

    Anil

      Hi,

      I tried changing the price control to u201CVu201D from u2018Su2019 and posted in MFBF. But Rs.360.00 got posted where as in std. price Rs.3200.00 was getting posted. I checked in material master record, accounting view the moving avg. price had become 360.

      The discussed material is a finished goods (in-house production) material. So the client costs it at std. costing only.

      Could there be any other solution. Thanks to u guys again for help.
