Goods in Transit & Deferred Revenue/Cost

Posted on by 2,389
Hi
 
I have a scenario on sales orders where, based on a specific delivery term, the stock leaves the warehouse and is in transit for a few days.
 
Then only once it is received by the customer, should the system reduce the stock, post the cos, and recognise the revenue.
 
Whilst it is in transit, the stock should be in a 'transit' location, and the COS and REV should also be in 'deferred' accounts,
 
 
Any ideas/suggestions?

    Hi Andre'  
     
    Thanks again for the responses on this.
     
    I believe it is standard practice that (when the Delivery Terms are for example DAP) the stock resides on the books of the sending company, until it is Delivered At Place (at the customer).
     
    That being said, the customer would like to print the Packing Slip prior to sending the stock, and see the stock (in it's books) but in a different location (e.g. GIT) and accounting (e.g. GIT).
     
    I believe I had found a solution, still to be confirmed, but using the "Stock Transfer" functionality prior to posting the packing slip. This would then move the stock to a GIT location, and using the Inter-Unit accounts, to post the GIT account. 
     
    Then as per D365 standard, once the stock reaches the destination, we post the Packing Slip & Invoice.

    Hi,
     
    There is indeed an option to post expected revenue when posting the packing slip. In this scenario, the packing slip will be posted when the customer accepts the goods where there is no option to post deferred revenue when picking or transferring the goods.

    Hi Andre
     
    Thanks for the response.
     
    I believe this is company specific, and can possibly understand the reasoning. However I know that there is possiblity to post the (deferred) revenue on Packing Slip, based on the Item Model Group setup.
     
    Knowing that this isn't a possibility, do you know if there is somewhere else in the system I could control the function to defer revenue on Packing Slip, other than the Item Model Group?

    Hi,
     
    I haven't heard of this requirement before. This is not supported apart from using a separate warehouse and transit of the goods to a "customer" warehouse. Then when the customer receives the goods, post the packing slip. In this workaround, there are no amounts posted to deferred accounts. 
     
    Can you tell me why you need this requirement? Is it a legal requirement in your country?
