Check Valuation Variants for Cost Object ID

Here you create a valuation variant , which contains the parameters for the valuation of the costing items for the cost object ID.

You create valuation strategies for the following objects:

Here you define the sequence in which the system searches for prices in the accounting view and the costing details screen of the material master record to valuate the materials.
Here you define the sequence in which the system searches for prices in activity type planning in cost center accounting to valuate the internal activities.
You also specify what plan version in cost center accounting is used.
In Release 3.0 you can also valuate the internal activities with the actual activity prices in cost center accounting.

Strategy sequences

You define the individual valuation bases of the valuation variant as strategy sequences. For the valuation of the material components, for example, you define a strategy sequence that reads the fields in the material master record in the following sequence:

1. Planned price 1
2. Standard price
3. Moving average price

The first price that is not zero is used to valuate the material component. To be able to use the valuation variant in costing, you must assign the valuation variant to a costing variant.

Standard settings

Actions

1. Enter an alphanumeric key and a text for the new valuation variant.
2. Define a valuation strategy for material components by entering up to five values as the search sequence.
3. Define a valuation strategy for internal activities by entering up to three values as the search sequence and assigning an appropriate plan version in cost center accounting to this valuation variant.
4. Assign the valuation variant to a costing variant.

Note

If you don't want to use the same valuation strategy or overhead rate in all the plants in a company code, you can define plant-dependent valuation variants by assigning valuation variants to particular plants. If you don't do this, the valuation variants will apply to all of your plants.
