 Stock Transport Order with Delivery and Billing Document/Invoice (Cross-Company-Code)


A stock transfer between plants that belong to different company codes can be carried out in the one-step procedure and the two-step procedure.

The stock transfer is not posted at the valuation price of the material in the issuing plant. The price of the stock transfer is defined in both the issuing and receiving plants using conditions.

The following applications are involved:

Purchasing (MM-PUR) in entering the order

Shipping (LE-SHP) in making the delivery from the issuing plant

Billing (SD-BIL) in creating the billing document for the delivery

Inventory Management (MM-IM) at goods receipt in the receiving plant

Invoice Verification (MM-IV) at invoice receipt in the receiving plant

This stock transport order has the following characteristics:

The quantity issued is managed neither in the issuing plant nor in the receiving plant. The quantity is not posted to the unrestricted-use stock of the receiving plant until the goods receipt posting. After the goods issue has been posted, the stock overview displays the quantity transferred as Stock in transit (CC) . This stock is determined dynamically for stock display.

With this transfer posting, pricing is carried out in both Purchasing and Sales and Distribution (SD).

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.

The goods movements are valuated according to the pricing in each case.

Accounting documentsare created for the following transactions:

Goods issue

Goods receipt


Invoice receipt

Process Flow

Stock transport order in the receiving plant

In the receiving plant, you create a stock transport order with order typeNBand item categoryblank(standard).

You will find a table of the possible combinations of order type and item category under Stock Transfer Using a Stock Transport Order

Choose Purchase order Create Vendor Known .

Enter a vendor in whose vendor master record you have assigned a plant. The system recognizes from the vendor that this is a stock transport order with delivery and billing document, and runs pricing in Purchasing.

You have the following options:

You can use documents of order type NB to record items with either the same company code or different company codes.

You can check the shipping data determined for the item on the Shipping Data tab page.

The stock transport order is read in MRP for the supplying plant and the receiving plant.

You can use methodPROCESS_ITEM of Business Add-In ME_PROCESS_PO_CUST (Enhancement for Processing the Enjoy Purchase Order: Customer) to influence the shipping data

For each combination of supplying plant and receiving plant, you can define in Customizing whether message 06 674 is a warning message or an error message when you enter an unsuitable order type, such as UB (Materials Management Purchasing Environment Data Define Attributes of System Messages).

If the document type contains a delivery type but another requirement is missing (for example, shipping data), you receive either a warning message or an error message (depending on the system configuration) when you try to enter the stock transport order.

If you receive a warning message, you can create the stock transport order, but you can post the goods issue for this item only in Inventory Management.

Depending on your system configuration, there may be an availability check in the supplying plant. (See Availability Check for Stock Transport Orders ).

Delivery in the issuing plant

Replenishment delivery

The issuing plant enters a replenishment delivery with delivery type NLCC in sales, as soon as the order is due to be shipped.

Once you have performed the shipping activities, post the goods issue in the supplying plant. The ship-to party and the other delivery parameters are determined in the same way as for stock transfer within a company code.

If required, the replenishment delivery can also be planned packed or in an outbound transport.

From the menu, choose Logistics Sales and Distribution Shipping and Transportation Outbound Delivery Create Collective Processing of Documents Due for Delivery Purchase Orders.

Stock overview

Due to the goods issue, stock types unrestricted-use stock and delivery to customer change in the stock overview of the delivering plant, because the goods leave the plant. Unlike a stock transfer with order type UB, no stock in transit is created.

Financial accounting

In financial accounting of the supplying company code, the stock accounts and accounts for costs of services and materials are updated accordingly, using the valuation price of the material in the supplying plant.

In the two-step procedure, the material is not yet posted to the receiving plant. From the accounting point of view, the material does not yet belong to the company code of the receiving plant. The quantity in transit is shown in the stock overview of the receiving plant as Stock in transit CC . Neither unrestricted-use stock nor on-order stock is changed.

You can display the value of the cross-company-code transit stock cumulatively for one plant or one company code.

The cross-company-code transit stock is determined dynamically from the orders and their order history.

See Posting a Goods Issue in Shipping

Billing document in the issuing plant

The issuing plant (the supplying company code or sales organization) creates the invoice for the delivery. In the billing document in SD, the pricing for the delivery is also carried out. This billing document is an intercompany billing with billing document type IV.

The internal invoice is created explicitly with reference to the replenishment delivery, or in a collective run. When processing the billing due list, set the Internal Clearing indicator.

Goods receipt in the receiving plant

Goods receipt

The receiving plant posts a goods receipt for the delivery. The goods are posted to unrestricted-use stock

At goods receipt posting, a purchase order history record is created automatically.

There is no need to post the goods receipt if the stock transfer uses the one-step procedure. The system then posts the material documents for the goods receipt and goods issue in the background.

To ensure that the delivery is updated, first you must post the goods receipt with reference to the delivery.

If you post the goods receipt with reference to the order (movement type 101), the delivery is not updated.


In the receiving plant, the unrestricted-use stock increases and the on-order stock is reduced. The Stock in transit CC of the receiving plant is reduced.

The stock situation in the supplying plant is not affected by the goods receipt.

Financial accounting

From an accounting point of view, the goods are now assigned to the company code of the receiving plant. An accounting document is created accordingly, with the price of the material as the purchase order price.

See Goods Receipt for a Stock Transport Order

Invoice in the receiving plant

The receiving plant enters the invoice from the supplying company code in logistics invoice verification.

If the invoice receipt has been posted automatically in internal billing, the invoice has a payment block.

Once the quantity and quality (if required) of the goods received have been checked, the invoice is released for payment. This removes the payment block in the accounting document.
