Cross company do payment on behalf of other company code
I found this fruitful topic about cross-company transactions:
My question is how to do payment on behalf of other company code if the cross company didn't has open items?
please, check 1.7 in the mentioned topic
"Prerequisite: Make sure that there are some open items for a vendor in company code 1011 or process a vendor invoice in 1011 using FB60/F-43"
If I want to make a payment to you, it must be based on either a service you provided or for a product your sold to me. Correct ? (Ignore the exceptional case of advance payment part for now)
So before payment is made, we should post a vendor invoice (F-43) or MIRO (if it's Purchase order based), so that the payment can be applied to an item.
Abdul indicated that he want to do payment through company code 1001 to vendor in company code 1002, however he don't have any open items for this vendor in company code 1001.
Above statement seems incorrect, because Abdul states that Vendor is in co.code 1002, then states that Vendor don't have open item in co.code 1001. May be it's a typo mistake.
What ever the scenario is whether it's the same co.code payment or cross co.code payment or manual payment or automatic payment program, you must have a target to shoot. You just can't keep firing into the air. Hope I am clear. Thanks and Good luck.
