Overhead costs in vendor consigment

Dear colleagues,

My client has standard prices which include the purchasing costs but also overhead costs like whse personnel. This is pretty usual. They also chose to post reservation for these costs at each GR. This way, the amounts posted to the price diff. account are real purchasing price differences. This is also working fine.

Nowadays, they want to start working with vendor consignment stock; the stock is not charged and not valuated until it is consumed. The accounting people see the consumption transaction as a sort of purchasing (which sounds logical) and would therefore like to have the overhead reservations in the withdrawal transaction as well.

I have put such conditions in the consignment PIR, much like we do in the standard PIR, but it seems like the system ignores them and only takes the net purchasing price. Then I suggested to the accounting people a custom program that would make the additional overhead posting in a separate document, but they don’t like the idea; they would like to have the consignment withdrawal document exactly the same way as the purchasing document.

I have seen the note 208555, which says that the delivery costs from consignment PIR are not considered. But these are not delivery costs in our case, but overhead costs (no condition category, space).

Have you ever faced such requirement? Do you have a tip how to meet it?
