Note 31126 - Intercompany billing - posting to vendor account using EDI

Version : 16 / 2011-09-27


As of Release 3.0C, you can make the posting to vendor account for intercompany billing (ICB) using SAP Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) directly in Financial Accounting.
This note is a guideline for making the correct system settings.
From EDI outbound processing for ICB, EDI inbound processing is triggered for the invoice receipt in Financial Accounting (module FI) and the posting to vendor account is carried out in the selling company code.
You can also use this EDI processing for the logistics invoice verification of the stock transport order in Materials Management (module MM). Only some of the parameters must be adjusted in Customizing for the output control. These adjustments are described in the following solution.
