STO between Intra-Company and Inter-Company

Hello SDN,

I need information on Inter-company and Intra-company STO.

What is the difference between the two?

Thank you.

Inter-Company

You can transfer stock from one plant to another where the plants belong to different companies (i.e. have different company codes).

Since the plants belong to different company codes, the following points have to be considered from the sales point of view:

delivery: the procedure for delivering on the basis of a purchase order from another plant should be similar to delivering on the basis of a sales order from a customer

billing: the delivering plant will be charging the receiving plant for the material.

To deal with these points, the stock transfer can be carried out with a normal purchase order type NB.

The delivering plant can then create a delivery and an intercompany billing document on the basis of this purchase order.

Intra-Company

You can transfer stock from one plant to another where the plants belong to the same companie (i.e. under one company code).
