Up to Release 3.0, third-party orders (item category S) were not taken into acount in the PO selection process for Intrastat purposes - or additional worksteps were necessary in this connection - because in most cases no goods receipt is recorded by the ordering party (dealer) in such triangular business transactions.
As of Release 4.0A, POs having the item category S and for which no GR but only an invoice receipt has been recorded are also taken into consideration.
If the dealer, customer, and vendor are each located in different countries, the purchase order must be excluded from the Intrastat declaration unless the countries of the dealer and customer constitute a single declaration entity (i.e. they have the same Intrastat reference number).
Up to Release 3.0, consignment orders are not selected. As of Release 4.0A they are taken into account.
In the process, the goods receipt is valuated with the consignment price either from the consignment price segment (up to Release 3.0) or from the consignment info record (as of Release 4.0A).
As of Release 4.0A, you can send the material components to the subcontracting vendor via an SD delivery and a pro forma billing document. The system calculates the value of the PO item using the material valuation price.
Upon receipt of the processed material from the subcontractor, the system checks during the selection run how much material has been delivered. By applying the new condition type GWLB, the system determines the proportionate value at the time the materials crossed the border (statistical value). This figure is added to the previous statistical value (GRWR).

SD delivery for input materials provided for subcontracting purposes.
Return deliveries and credit memos:
With regard to material that you regard as unacceptable due to quality deficiencies, you can either return the material to the vendor or elect to receive a credit memo for it.
The return delivery is initiated with the aid of report RMEXST00. This report converts the import data from the purchase order into export data.
In the case of a credit memo, report RMIMST00 reduces the invoice value accordingly.
Enhancements in purchasing documents:
In the purchasing documents, the exclusion indicator can be set at header and item levels. If you set the indicator at header level, it applies to the entire document irrespective of the indicator in the individual items.
As of Release 4.0A, the screen control and default values for the import data screens depend on the goods supplier (supplying vendor) - if one has been maintained - not on the vendor in the purchase order.
If the in the PO header is changed, the system then updates the default values of all already existing PO items.
The following new user exits are available for the default values of the import data screens:
- EXIT_SAPLV50E_002 for the import data in the PO header
- EXIT_SAPLV50E_004 for the import data in the PO item
The system determines the default values from the master data of the material and vendor master records and the info record. If required, you can set customer-specific default values using the exits.
