Re: [sap-acct] tracking of freight payment on outward freight

You can set up a condition in your pricing procedure in SD which creates an accrual for the freight costs and (a) charges a freight cost account in the CoGS area of the P & L and (b) credits a GR/IR account specially for freight. When the transporter's invoice arrives it can then be debited against the GR/IR account and any variance can be written off to a freight variance account, also in the CoGS area of the P & L, using standard MM functionality, and the credit of course goes to the vendor account. You can then track what has been invoiced or not invoiced by analyzing the GR/IR account, again using standard FI functionality, and can analyze the variance account to see where you lost (or made) money. Whether you then invoice the customer extra or have an argument with the transporter over the extra costs is a policy matter. It may be that you add a margin on the freight in the sales order when (if) you charge the customer and that this margin covers any variances. Those decisions are for your commercial people to make, not for me.

Subject: tracking of freight payment on outward freight

We are selling goods in which we are charging freight to the customer. we are arranging to transport the same to the customers place. for this we are paying the freight to the transporter.
We want to correlate whether we have paid all the freights against all the sales invoice or not ? whether any double payment is made to the transporter or not.
Whether we have made any loss in the transportation or not ?

Can any body guide please.
