This is a scenario used in Brazil Localization.

The main characteristic of this process is that involves a negotiation between three companies.

One of them generates a purchase order, one of them receives and generates the invoice taking the role of the vendor, but the material is sent by a third partner, which takes the role of the goods supplier. 

More details can be found on SAP Help Third-Party Processing.

ME21N - Purchase Order Creation

  • In this scenario, the main difference is that you will need to enter one Vendor and one Goods Supplier, in 'Partners' tab. 
  • TIP: Check the flag 'GR-Bsd IV' is set. This is mandatory for any Brazilian scenario (the only exception is Future Delivery process). Despite this a simple flag, if not checked at this moment of the process, can bring severe inconsistencies for the process, mainly if you need to cancel a subsequent document later.
