2238548 - Inventory Cost for Material Valuated by Moving Average Drops After GR/IR Clearing Run


  • You maintain the Perpetual Cost Method Moving Average for an externally procured material.
  • You purchase this material always for the same price of X,XX LC (X,XX represents the purchase price, LC stands for Local Currency).
    The same cash discount of Y% (Y represents the percentage amount) was applied for the respective payments.
  • You expect that the inventory cost would never drop under or rise above the purchase price minus the cash discount: X,XX LC - Y %= lowest inventory cost.
  • Yet, you notice that the Goods Receipt/Invoice Receipt Clearing (GR/IR) run has caused the inventory cost to drop lower than this expected amount in period MMM.YYYY (MMM.YYYY represents the accounting period).
