Cost Accounting by LE
Customer has legal requirement to report all inventory transactions by Legal Entity
Content (please ensure you mask any confidential information):
My customer is a project driven organization in the construction industry. They have multiple LE's belonging to one BU. The BU is linked to a primary LE (below legal entity flag is checked). We have defined an Inventory Org linked to the BU and primary LE which is the profit center and we have setup cost accounting for this inventory org. Customer uses Actual cost method.
When the customer purchases material they normally do know the project and the PO sold to legal entity should be the same as the project legal entity. However, they also have scenarios where they purchase material without linking to a specific project. These will later be transferred/allocated to a project using inventory transaction type Project Transfer.
