I have provided brief details about Subcontracting process as per my experience. Make it useful. What is subcontracting process? Subcontracting is one of the procurement processes available in MM. In this process, components are shared to vendor to get the final product. Below are the steps involved in this process. Steps to perform subcontracting:
Create subcontracting Info record (Optional) – T Code – ME11
Create subcontracting PO with item category L – T Code – ME21N Steps: ME21N —> Enter Item Category L –>, Material (End Product), PO Quantity, Delivery Date, Net Price, Plant –> Click on Item Details –> Tab Material Data — >Components, select Explode BOM –> Click on Components button –> Enter the sub components –> Go back & Save. Note: Components can be exploded through BOM (T Code CS01) or components can be given manually also.
Create Transfer Posting with Movement Type 541 to issue the sub components to the vendor T Code -ME2O/ MIGO
Goods Receipt for finished product – T Code -MIGO Note: During goods receipt, final product will be received with movement type 101 and components will be consumed automatically with 543 movement type
Invoice Receipt for the services performed – T Code – MIRO
Accounting entries for subcontracting:Example: Components cost is 100 INR, Subcontracting Charges are 40 INR
There will be no account entries at transfer posting 541.
