Budget carry forward for GR materials

Hi Experts,

We are using investment projects.

create project Budget it & goes for procurements. Create PR with account assigment Q in ME51N giving WBS.

covert that into PO then GR & get statistical actual posted(on S_ALR_87013558 shows on actual column)

when we Good Issue(GI) that item into same projects actual post to P&L account(still on S_ALR_87013558 shows on actual column)

When we carry forward budget, what would be the treatment for GR(not GI) portion.

would there be any budget chaeck for this again for new fiscal year at the point of GI.

Please advice..

Thanks & Reg,

    Since Assigned value considers statistical postings as well, I do not think there will be an issue during GI, after carry forwarding the budget.

      Yes, as kishore & Abdul mentioned budget check is not happening at the point of GI .

      I could test it in our testing client, actual posting on next year even without budget on that year.

      Thanks for your promt assist..

    As per understaning, Once Budget is allocated , commitment generates against PR/PO as set. And once GR is done it consumes the budget and actual cost is shown against the project. As actuals are aleady taken into consideration, so even though we carryforward the remaining budget to next financial year, while doing GI we will not have any impact. because FI postings happen as below

    while GR

    Debit: Inventory account

    Credit : GR/IR account

    while GI

    Debit consumtion account

    credit : Inventory account.

    Hope this is useful.
