SD Billing to Post Expense and Revenue to different Object

Dear Experts,

Kindly need your suggestion to solve my issue.

So I have this case, where goods can be sold for free. During SD billing, the revenue will be posted against discount (cost element type: sales deduction) and the VAT will be posted against promotion expense.

To capture the promotion expense, the plan is to assign Internal Order in the Sales Order. But then I figured out that once I assigned an internal order in SO, all cost and revenue posting from the billing will direct to the Internal Order.

Is there any way to control the posting of revenue and discount to hit reconciliation object (profit center and bus. area) instead of the internal order? The requirement is to post the promotion expense to the Internal Order but post the revenue and discount to Profit Center from the sold material.

Need your kind advise,

    Hi Analistia,

    You can remove the Internal Order from FI document line item using CO substitution (t.code OKC9). In this case the items with IO cleared will be posted to CO-PA, whereas the rest will go to CO object (Internal order). If you have New GL activated, you nedd to check with FI consultant the splitting rules, as they may prevent posting to more than 1 CO object from 1 FI document.

    We have it implemented on ECC6.0EHP4 and works correctly.

    • Solved!

      The CO substitution is finally working. Before, there was a definition of auto object assignment in OKB9 that prevented the substitution to work. After I removed the line in OKB9, the substitution works fine.

      One thing I still cant understand is I also need to define FI substitution with a same rule or else the CO sub wont work. Perhaps if any of you understands this behaviour, you can kindly share 😊

      Thanks experts
