Hi ,

In business we have a scenario where the user is trying to transfer a non valuated packaging material (ZVRP Custom material type ) to VERP Material through transfer posting and movement type 309

I would like to know the below points

1. Is that a correct process where we are transferring a non valuated material to a valuated material ?

2. What would be the financial implications for it

Request some one to provide me with above information

Regards

Pavan

    Hi

    Mvmt type 309 is the correct process but it will happen only when the Valuation class for both the materials is same. Check the valuation class of both the materials

    Thanks

    Hi,

    The movement type for materail to material transfer is 309. There will be impact in changing non valuated material to valuated material. For non valuated material there will be no value updation, only quantity updation and consumption statastics will be updated in material master record. The accounting document can be created with zero value.

    For valuated material quantity and value updation will be there in material master and accounting documents will trigger with values. Hence in your case accounting documents and value updation will be ther after changing to valuated material. One thing i need to add is material type to material type is done through MMAM. Thanking you.

    the financial implications depends on the valuation of the target material, whether it is valuated with standard price or with moving average price.

    In case of moving average, the value will stay as is and the quantity will increase, the moving average goes down, accounting document gets created with zero value.

    in case of standard price, then written on quantity of the target material is valuated with the current standard price. the stock value increase, and account document is created with posting to stock account and difference account.

    Yes, you can do the material transfer from one material to other through 309.The UOM for the both material should be same.

    When the material will be transferred then the quantity will be increased in valuated packing material stock and in MM point of view the value for the increased quantity can be updated. But you need to concern your finance people for stock value update.

    Hi,

    material should have same base unit of measure, price control indicator can be V or S, 309 is correct movement type.

    You can use movement type 309 if price of both materials are same otherwise system will change the moving price of materials.

    Hi

    I am putting my view

    using Movement type 309

    A transfer posting from material to material results in the transferred quantity being managed under another material number.

    The transferred quantity is deducted from unrestricted-use stock of the issuing material and posted into unrestricted-use stock of the receiving material.

    For every item you enter, two material document items are created:

    ● An item for the issuing material

    ● An item for the receiving material

    Parallel to the material document, an accounting document is created. The issuing material master record determines the value of the transfer posting.

    If you trasnfer material from A to B,

    accounting doc will generated according to value of material A

    and If material A is non valuated then it will don't have valuation class ,so i think you will get error while transfer material

    Hi Venkata,

    1. You can trf M-M with 309 though the source material is non-valuated and target is valuated, Provided...Units of measurement are same. Since there's no valuation class maintained for the source material, there will not be any financial impact, but at the target material, depending on what value you assign at the time of transfer posting respective G/L acc are hit in your case it is...

    Stock A/c xxx Dr

    Gain/Loss from revaluation A/c xxx Cr

    depending on which price control your materials are active. (Pls check the postings in your DEV)

    2. Financial implications mean, the crediting material which is non-valuated will not have any implications and the debitting material stock acc will be hit along with either Gain/Loss acc or offsetting acc depending on the type of the scenario. Entries in Gain/Loss acc are BS acc affecting your current asset valuations.

    Pls revert with your testings

    Regards
