This document describes internal accounting for freight cost. Internal accounting for freight cost can only be performed when the freight cost has been distributed.
Refer to these documents:
The 'Distribution accounting method' sets whether the distributed freight cost should create an internal account entry in (CAS950) or not. The distribution accounting method cannot be changed after the freight cost elements are created. If any costing element in the freight costing model should be accounted, this field must contain a value.
The 'Included in internal freight cost' checkbox sets whether the freight cost amount should be included when internal account entries are generated. If this setting is enabled on freight agreement header (PPS100), all the elements in the model will have the same setup. If it is enabled on freight cost element level (PPS105), it will only apply to that specific freight cost element.
All distributed freight cost transactions are generated on accounting event DR10 and accounted on accounting type 940 (Freight cost) and 941 (Offset account freight cost). If there is a rounding difference between calculated total amount and distributed total amount, it will be accounted on accounting type 280 (Rounding off).
To avoid any discrepancy between what is calculated, distributed and accrued, the status of the calculated freight rate header is set to 80 (Internal accounting started) when in (CAS953), an update to an internal account entry is for a specific transaction number is approved. When the internal account entry is finished, the status is set to 90 (Accounted)
The internal account entry is triggered in (CAS950) by first activating parameter 'Other transaction' and then clicking Next. After that, the distributed freight cost transactions can then be displayed in (CAS300).
