2674900 - Posting logic for scenarios of Invoice with price variances - SAP ERP & SAP S/4HANA


It is required to understand the posting logic for these scenarios:

  • Partial invoice with price variances
  • Credit memo with variance for a moving average price material
  • Invoice for subcontract order with price variances

For purchase order items for which a goods receipt is planned, the system creates an accounting document that debits the stock account. The offsetting entry is posted to a goods receipt/invoice receipt clearing account (GR/IR clearing account), which is cleared by posting the invoice.
