 Accounting Indicator in the Completion Confirmation


Note Note

This function is provided especially for the confirmation of service orders .

End of the note.

You use the accounting indicator when confirming service orders if:

  • You want to further categorize the cost elements below the operation level

Example Example

Operation 0010: Repair of photocopier

Confirmation 1: 3 hours (Accounting indicator: goodwill)

Confirmation 2: 3 hours (Accounting indicator: fully billable)

  • Differentiation at cost element level should not result in an increased number of service types in the system

  • You want to perform resource-related billing and use the accounting indicator for price determination reasons
