What are the accounting entries when you do the Goods Receipt for the Intra Company Stock Transport Order?



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.
