Overview

The inter-company module enables the automatic creation of matching purchase/sales invoice/order when a sales/purchase invoice/order of document type 'inter-company' is completed.

For example, if the following document is created: Sales Order in the organization B for a business partner called The Simpsons Ltd (which is associated to an organization A). The system will generate a new Purchase Order in the organization A for the business partner McGiver (because it is associated to organization B).

In this new document, the values of the different fields are copied from the original document, in except of the tax of the lines (starting from version 2.1.7), which is calculated according to product, business partner, etc. Nevertheless, the grand total amount of both, original and generated documents, must be the same, so tax rates of both documents must have same percentage.

Installation

IMPORTANT NOTE: This module is only available for 2.50MP4 and up.

This module can be installed following the usual steps to install a module. It can be installed through the central repository or downloaded at the module section of this forge project. Only the System Administrator can install modules.

Definition of Inter-company Document Types

First of all, new document types with inter-company flag checked must be created. Then, the relation between these document types must be defined within the organizations. So that when a purchase/sales invoice/order is created using the above created inter-company document type, on completion of the purchase/sales invoice/order, the system will generate the matching inter company sales/purchase invoice/order and will complete it.

Creating new document types

  1. Login as the 'client' administration user
  2. Navigate to Financial Management -> Accounting -> Setup -> Document Type -> Document Definition.

Create a new entry in this tab with the below details for sales order.

Notice that there could be no target document type(optional) defined in the Financial Management -> Accounting -> Setup -> Document Type -> Document Definition -> Inter-company Relations tab. This allows us to do it manually later. In this case, no matching order/invoice is created while completing the order/invoice.

Inter-company Order Creation

When an inter-company Sales Order is completed, the system generates the matching Purchase Order automatically (if there is a matching document defined for the source and target organizations involved). Notice that this flow could be started in the Purchase Order side too. In this case, a matching Sales Order would be created.

The system generates a Purchase Order in Organization A, with McGiver as business partner and Inter-company Purchase Order as transaction document type.
