If you don't have accruals the value of that condition will gets added to base value of material that is it becomes material cost, by maintaining accruals one more thing is you can accrue all the cost & clear once over a period of time.

Account key

Account key is the key where it links to particular G/L account for posting the value& acct key & accrual key may be same.

Account keys are EIN, FR1, FR2, FR3, FRE, etc...

And in OBYC, we do necessary account determination for the same.

For e.g. Freight Posting in GR

Condition type FRA1, Accrual FR1 and in OBYC, assign Freight Clearing A/c to FR1

During GR;

Stock Account - Dr - 110 INR

GR/IR Clearing A/c - Cr - 100 INR

Freight Clearing A/c - Cr - 10 INR
