Intercompanyinvoicing/User Manual

Contents

Overview

The inter-company module enables the automatic creation of matching purchase/sales invoice/order when a sales/purchase invoice/order of document type 'inter-company' is completed.

For example, if the following document is created: sales Order in the organization B for a business partner called The Simpsons Ltd (which is associated to an organization 'A'). The system will generate a new Purchase Order in the organization 'A' for the business partner McGiver (because it is associated to organization B).

Configuration

This part involves configuring the specific document types as being inter-company documents. The following items need to be configured.

Business Partners mapping

Mapping vendor MC Givers to organization B

Mapping customer The Simpsons Ltd to organization A

Inter company Document definition mapped to an Matching inter company document definition

While creating the Inter company document definition we need to select the respective Matching inter company document definition. So that when we create a purchase/sales invoice/order using the above created Inter company document definition on completion of the purchase/sales invoice/order system will generate the inter company sales/purchase invoice/order.

Creating new document types

  1. Login as the 'client' administration user
  2. Navigate to Financial Management -> Accounting -> Setup -> Document Type -> Document Definition.

For a document type, there can be no target document type(optional) defined in the Financial Management -> Accounting -> Setup -> Document Type -> Document Definition -> Inter-company Relations tab. This allows us to do it manually later. In this case, no matching order/invoice is created while completing the order/invoice.
