Freight Handling

Dear All,

How to Handle Freight at Actual.

Scenario - While Creating Purchase Order, Purchaser does not have any Information regarding the Frieght.

So when he receives invoice he gets the Details and he enters in the Inoice Under "Unplanned Cost".

Is this the correct way or is there any other way to work on this.

Your scenario is not correct because the freight cost is not added to material cost during invoice entry time 'unplanned cost' booking.

Correct way to book freight cost are as follows :

1) if freight cost claimed by PO vendor along with their invoice and then PO should be amendment for freight cost enter in PO in the freight condition and then SAVE the PO. After release the PO, now doing MIGO the freight cost added into material cost and also posted into separate GL as freight cost.

2) If freight cost claimed by other vendor (non PO vendor), after received freight invoice to be open for the particular PO in ME22N and then added freight cost in PO amendment. The freight vendor code to be updated in the particular PO header menu > Conditions tab-> freight condition selected and then below condition details button (mirror icon button) selected and opened new window screen bottom vendor code to be changed as freight vendor code. After that MIGO doing freight added into material cost and then MIRO doing the freight cost to be posted into freight vendor account.

The above 2 methods are correct way to book freight because freight cost also added into material cost.

Hope, it is very useful for you,
