1872336 - BSV and FRL not triggered in accounting document at goods receipt for subcontracting purchase order with account assignment

Symptom

You create a subcontracting purchase order with account assignment. This issue is valid for all account assignment categories except when you are posting to valuated special stock E or Q.

At goods receipt, the accounts assigned to transaction keys BSV and FRL are not triggered in the FI document.

Example 1. Goods receipt for subcontracting purchase order without account assignment

In a goods receipt for a subcontracting purchase order without account assignment the system posts the value of the external service (net order value referring to the quantity of goods received) to the external service account (FRL) for the debits and to the GR/IR clearing account (WRX) for the credits (purchase account management is not activated):

Item Transaction

01    BSX             stock posting for the delivered material    (1a)
02    WRX            GR/IR clearing account                           (2a)
03    BSV             stock change account                             (1b)
04    FRL             external service                                     (2b)
05    BSX             stock posting for the components            (3a)
06    GBB             consumption posting for the components (3b)

When the finished material in a subcontracting purchase order has account assignment, we do not post the goods receipt to stock. The posting key BSX is not used. We post to the key KBS instead. As we do not post to BSX, there are no changes in the stock and the BSV posting is not required. The document can only be balanced if we post KBS = WRX. If the FRL line is added there is no way to balance the document. It is for this reason that the FRL posting is not triggered in this case.

Example 2. Goods receipt for subcontracting purchase order with account assignment

When the finished material in a subcontracting purchase order has account assignment, the following accounting document will be posted (purchase account management is not activated):

Item Transaction

01    KBS             consumption      
02    WRX            GR/IR clearing account
03    BSX             stock posting for the components
04    GBB             consumption posting for the components
