The purpose of this page is to describe the subcontracting process with two NF (Notas Fiscais).
This is one of the subcontracting process used in Brazil Localization. The main characteristic of this process is that two (2) Notas Fiscais are posted in the return of the process. One Nota Fiscal will have the subcontracted material and the other one the material with a symbolic return.
To successfully execute this process the flag 'GR.Based IV' must be checked in the tab 'Invoice' in the Purchase Order (PO). The movement '543' must not be in the view J_1BIV04V. The subcontracting process always use 'ICM3' and 'IPI3'. It's not possible to change this behavior since it's a legislation point. Any configuration done in this regard, trying to use 'IPI1' or 'ICM1' for example or even trying to configure other taxes will not take effect. You can see it in this Include: LJ1BFF05. What happens is that when you use movement type '541' the system loads a 'dummy' tax code that always will take 'IPI3' and 'ICM3' to the Nota Fiscal.
To create a subcontracting purchase order it's necessary to choose an item type 'Subcontracting': 'L'. When you choose this item category system will show you an error message ‘Not possible to determine any components – Message nº. ME 154’. Go to tab 'Material Data' as showing below and select the components.
Select the components, in this example component 'Mat00-02'.
Go back to to the initial scrren and save the PO.
The next step is to send the components to the subcontractor thru transaction 'MB1B' with movement '541'. Click on 'To Purchase Order', inform the number of the PO and press 'Enter'.
Click on 'Adopt'.
Click on ‘Nota Fiscal’ and choose the Type for Nota Fiscal Creation. Electronic or Normal. In this example ‘Normal NF G1’. System will create a NF overview, click in the ‘Back’ button and ‘Save’.
Now we need to print the NF. Go to transaction J1B3N, system will bring you the NF to be printed. In this example: 40770.
In the menu bar click on ‘Nota Fiscal’ => ‘Output’.
Your partner processed the material and sent it back to your company. Now we’ll receive the processed material thru MIGO (Goods Receipt) with movement type '101'. Inform the PO number and the Delivery Note number. Check the box 'Item OK.'
Save the document.
The next step is to post the MIRO (Incoming Invoice). Enter with the Invoice date, reference and PO number. In tab ‘Details’ inform the NF type, in this example 'E1'.
Save the document.
The last step is to create the symbolic return with the NF of components via 'MB04' (Subcontracting Subsequent Adjustment) with movement type '543'. Go to transaction 'MB04' and inform the PO number and Delivery Note. Click on ‘Adopt’ button.
Inform the ‘Posted Quantity’ , in this example ‘1’. Click on ‘Adopt’ again.
Note that the movement '543' is showed here. Click on ‘Nota Fiscal’.
Choose ‘Normal NF R1’. System will show you a NF overview, then press ‘Save’ and your document will be posted. If you access transaction J1B3N system will show the NF generated.
