The correct answer is – NO ACCOUNTING ENTRIES. Accounting document will be created during Post Goods Issue at Supplying Plant but there won’t be any accounting document during Post Goods Receipt at Receiving Plant
Note: No other condition types are having value in PO Conditions. Only valuation price is available.

You can find the highlighted message at the bottom on the screen which is prompted by the system after clicking FI Documents button. I hope , this screenshot has given you the clarity to understand the answer NO ACCOUNTING ENTRIES for GR against Intra Company STO
Answer: Latest GR date field in Purchase Order item is useful to control the late Goods Receipts. Based on business requirement, this can be used to provide as information to the user who performs Goods Receipt or else to stop GR which happens after the Latest GR date of PO. Generally, business uses this field for information purpose but not to stop GR.
Business can use this field as information or as control to stop GR for the Purchase Orders.
Ex: Delivery date of a PO item is 03.03.2019 and the Latest GR date is maintained as 12.03.2019. And make the message M7163 as E (Error) so system won’t allow any Goods Receipt after 12.03.2019. Similar approach can be used to prompt as information by keeping message M7163 as W (Warning)
Below is the explanation from SAP about the field Latest GR date. I have provided the screenshot from Purchase Order for your reference
Latest Possible Goods Receipt
This is the latest acceptable date for goods receipt (GR).
If goods are received after this date, you will receive either a warning message or an error message, depending on the system setting. If you receive an error message, you will not be able to post the GR.
Below screenshot shows the Warning message which will be prompted by the system during Goods Receipt
I hope this document is useful for you. Provide your valuable feedback.
Requirement: Business wants to have control in system to give error if any user tries to cancel GR document without cancelling the IR document. This will be helpful to avoid any inconsistencies between GR and IR.
Solution: We should suggest to use GR Based Invoice verification process to the business if they are not using. If they are already using GR Based IV, it will be fine. As per SAP standard system, there is a configuration where we can setup which movements can be allowed after posting Invoice Receipt for a purchase order.
For example: 122- Return to Vendor should be allowed and 102- Cancel of GR Document should not be allowed
Below configuration needs to be used to put this control. The path for configuration : SPRO- SAP Reference IMG-Materials Management-Inventory Management and Physical Inventory-Goods Receipt-For GR-Based IV, Reversal of GR Despite Invoice
Once you click on the node – For GR-Based IV, Reversal of GR Despite Invoice , below screen will be appeared. Movement types need to be maintained along with check box.
Indicates that in the case of GR Based IV, you can enter a reversal in respect of the purchase order, or a return delivery, even though the corresponding invoice for the goods receipt document has already been posted.
If RevGR desp.IR = X, it means GR cancellation/Return to Vendor can be done without cancelling IR document
If RevGR desp.IR = Blank, it means GR cancellation/Return to Vendor can’t be done without cancelling IR document
As the requirement is to test the cancellation of GR Document after posting both GR and IR for purchase order, we can consider that the GR and IR are completed for the Purchase Order. Below is the transaction to cancel the GR document without performing IR cancellation. You can observe the error message based on above configuration.
Transaction Code is MIGO. You can perform the cancellation of Material Document with Transaction Code MBST also. You can observe the error message once you click on Check or Post button
Error details are provided below for the information.
The error message will be given by the system when user tries to cancel the material document without cancelling the IR document when GR Based IV is activated in PO. Below screenshot is provided from the Purchase Order where GR Based IV flag will be available
This error can be resolved if you follow below steps
Cancel IR document with MR8M Transaction Code
Cancel GR document with MIGO-Cancellation or MBST Transaction Code
