The classic sales process is a three-step procedure: create a sales order, create a delivery with reference to the sales order, and invoice for the delivered goods. Handling the potential time gap between the goods issue and the invoice has long been an issue for organizations trying to keep their financial accounts and Profitability Analysis (CO-PA) in sync. SAP has provided a solution to the timing gap with enhancement package 5 for SAP ERP 6.0. It provides a way to value goods that have left the sending company but that have not arrived at the receiving company. Learn about this new function for capturing the goods movements and values associated with stock in transit and for handling the transfer of ownership between the selling and buying companies or plants.

The material ledger records the flow of goods from the initial purchase of the raw material to the final sale of the finished product. It assigns any price differences incurred during purchasing and production to the product sold — or at least it does provided that the goods flow remains within a single company code. Until SAP enhancement package 5 for SAP ERP 6.0, a material sold to another company in the same group was treated as an externally procured material. Instead of the actual costs for the material purchased being transferred to the affiliated company, only the material price was recorded in the material ledger. Learn how to record both the legal view (in which the purchased good is treated as an external purchase for legal reporting purposes) and the group view (in which the actual costs for the purchased good are passed on to the other company and split into their cost components for group reporting purposes) and how to capture the intercompany markups in your cost component split.
