Guess it is the Purchasing options form!!
Also could depend on any customizations to PO Account Generator Workflow.
Accounting DFF segments could come from e.g. Employee Expense account on Employee record.
Hi,1 person found this helpful
Please find the answer in the same sequence as questions are
a) All these information populated from Organization parameter, purchasing options setup. as expense accrual account gets defined in purchasing option and rest in organization parameter.
b) Recvg inventory account is defined in the receiving option, where as inspection account gets defined in the quality module.
c) Inventory accrual accounts are defined in the organization parameter while defining the organization.
Thanks. I would like to know where exactly the receiving inspection a/c is defined. You mentioned Quality module, however, I would like to know the navigation.
Receiving Account is defined in the Receiving Parameters of the organization. Setup-->Options-->Receing Options.
But that is the Receiving Inventory a/c. Is it the same as Receiving inspection a/c?. If so, then why is it mandatory? Coz if we have a direct delivery, then this a/c will not be used in the first place.
Yes, they are same (Receiving and Receving Inspection are used interchangeably).
It is mandatory becuase, for inventory purchases, you need to accrue your purchases till you pay. If a company has a long inspection periods before the goods are put in inventory, you need a way to record these purchases in accounting books. As explained by someone earlier, the account entry is between Reciving account and Accrual Account.
So irrespective of the fact you have long lead times between receiving and Delivery or not, this account is used for this account entry.
Whether you have standard delivery or direct delivery or inspection is required, you need this account.
