Supplementary Documentation - BEMOT 0001


The accounting indicator is designed especially for reporting service orders.


The system forwards the accounting indicator to Controlling where it is stored in the line item. In the line item, the accounting indicator is then converted into the origin.


You use accounting indicators, if you want to break down cost elements below the operation level:

Transaction 0010: Repair to a machine

Confirmation 1: 3 hours (accounting indicator: grace period)

Confirmation 2: 3 hours (accounting indicator: can be billed in full)
