Cross-Company Stock Transfer
Even when the plants involved in a stock transfer belong to different company codes, you can use conventional methods to transfer the stock:
In these cases the value of the transfer posting is posted to a company code clearing account in both the issuing and the receiving plants. The stock transfer is valuated at the valuation price of the material in the issuing plant.
Stock Transport Order that Includes Delivery via Shipping and Billing Document/Invoice
You can carry out stock transfers with the delivery and billing function. In this procedure, the stock is transferred in the form of a sale between two plants. This is only possible if the plants involved belong to different company codes
When you use the delivery function in Shipping, the whole transaction - from the delivery through billing and invoice verification - is reflected in the system. The following Shipping functions are available for this:
For example, planning shipping activities, picking, packing
For example, price determination
Before you can transfer stock (using a stock transport order) with the delivery function and a bill is issued, the plant must be assigned to a vendor. You maintain the vendor - plant assignment in the vendor master record.
If a user enters a vendor when creating a stock transport order, the plant is automatically copied from the vendor master record.
A stock transport order with delivery and billing is a mixture of a standard purchase order and a stock transport order: as in the standard purchase order, when items are entered (standard items with no item category) price determination is carried out and shipping data established; as in the stock transport order, the transfer of stocks from one location to another is monitored.
Stock Transport Order with Valuated and Non-Valuated Sales Order Stock
When entering goods issues for cross-company-code stock transport orders, you can work with both valuated and non-valuated sales order stock (E) using the one-step procedure (movement type 645) and the two-step procedure (movement type 643). In the MRP view of the material master record (MRP 4) you define from which stock material is to be withdrawn by selecting the Dependent requirements indicator for individual and collective requirements. There are three options:
In Purchasing, the price of the material in question is determined in the usual manner (from the info record, for example).
In SD, pricing is also carried out as normal during the billing process.
Your company has to maintain settings in the Customizing system determining whether stock transfers between two plants should be with or without billing.
You can also determine whether individual users can carry out stock transfers, for example, with or without billing or in either of the two ways.
If you choose Purchase order ® Create ® Stock transfer (i.e. a stock transport order without billing) and stock transfer with billing has been defined for the plants in the Customizing system, a message appears indicating that you should create a standard purchase order.
