SAP MM – Why is the freight as a purchase surcharge not included in the material cost at the time of goods receipt?

In SAP project practice, business departments often require that purchase surcharges, such as customs duties and freight and miscellaneous charges, be included in the cost of purchased materials.

The usual practice is to maintain the rate data corresponding to the condition type of these surcharges in the purchase order. In this way, when conducting the goods receipt for purchase orders, these surcharges can be included in the inventory amount.

The following process demonstration is based on SAP s / 4 Hana 1909 system.
