  • What is Inventory Reconciliation? When Material or WIP transaction is Inventory - Cost processed the on-hand quantity & elements and average cost is updated Material On-hand quantity multiplied by the Distributions item cost = Inventory value WIP - Cost elements MATERIAL and WIP Distributions MATERIAL OVERHEAD OUTSIDE PROCESSING PRODUCTION OVERHEAD Accounted in General Ledger RESOURCE General Ledger Inventory INV-GL Account Value Reco Balance 6
  • Transactions affecting Material Valuation Receiving Deliver Receiving transactions occur in the PO module Material transactions Material WIP occur in the INV module Mfg Transactions occur Supplier Return to in the WIP module Intransit Shipment Vendor MaterialSupplier Shipments Back-FlushIntransit Receipts Item Cost update TransactionReceipt from Production Customer ReturnsMisc. Issue/Receipt Issue to ProductionInter-Org Transfers Inventory AdjustmentsSubinventory Transfers Return to Vendor 7
  • How to perform Inventory Reconciliation? Complete all inventory transactions Check interfaces for errors Close all pending shipments Run Create Accounting program Open Next Inventory Period Close current inventory period Run related reports Period Close Reconciliation Report Inventory Value Report Material Account Distribution Detail Report WIP Account Distribution Report 8
  • How to perform Inventory Reconciliation?• Running the Period Close Reconciliation report for summarizinginventory transaction records• It displays differences between accounted value (SLA) and inventoryvalue (INV)• This report creates a baseline for inventory calculation for the nextperiod 9
  • How to perform Inventory Reconciliation?1 In Material Distribution Form sum of all the lines with “Inv Valuation” as the parameter for a given period = value as per ‘Inventory Value Report’ for that period?2 Current period’s inventory value report - last period’s inventory value report= “Inv Valuation” material distributions 10
  • How to perform Receiving Inventory Reconciliation?• Run Receiving Valuation Report to get month-end balance Shows item quantity, valuation and detailed receipt informationTIP: Use the Detail report option, the reportwill displays details of the quantityin Receiving Inspection for each receiving shipment. 12
  • How to perform Receiving Inventory Reconciliation? • Run Receiving Account Distribution Report to view the accounting distributions for your receiving transactions for the period This report supports the distributions created forTIP: Tally the distributions inPurchase Order Receipts || Purchase Order Receipt this report with theAdjustments || Purchase Order Returns to Supplier ||Deliver to Expense Destinations || Return to Receiving Account Analysis reportfrom Expense Destinations etc. (GL) 13
  • How to perform Receiving Inventory Reconciliation? Material Account Distribution Report Summary Detail If you detect unusual accounts or amounts, use the Detail report 14
  • How to perform Intransit Inventory Reconciliation?• Run the Intransit Value Report* FOB terms decides ownership *TIP: Set option “Only Display InventoryYou Own” to YesTally the Distributions in MaterialDistribution Report forTransaction Type ‘IntransitReceipt/Shipment’ with theAccount Analysis report (GL) 15
  • How to perform WIP Reconciliation?• Run the WIP Value Report to get thedetails for the work in processinventory for a particular accountingperiod.TIP: You must close all open periodsbefore the one you are running this reportfor.Tally the Distributions in WIPDistribution Report with theAccount Analysis report (GL) 16
  • Inventory accounting • Run ‘Journal Entries Report - Cost Management’ to summarize the accounting entries in SLA by Organization and accounting class (Inventory Valuation, Receiving Inspection, WIP Valuation, etc.) .Note: Compare the summarized account balance at the organization level with the reports listed belowReport Name UseMaterial Account Distributions (Detail and View the accounts charged for inventory transactionsSummary)Receiving Account Distributions View accounting distributions for receiving transactionsIntransit Value Report View intransit inventory transactions 17

  • What causes reconciliation gaps? General Ledger Account Balance Material Inventory Value 21
  • What causes reconciliation gaps? • Receiving Inventory account same as INV Valuation SETUPS • Material account is used for non-INV setup • Setup change during the month • Entering valuation accounts in Misc Transactions TRANSACTIONS • Using material A/c for offsetting Avg. Cost update • Manual Journal entries in GL • Incorrect reports due to Data corruption REPORTS • Back-dated transactions • Report cut-off issues at month/period end • Interface transactions not cleared in time RECO PROCESS • Uncosted/Un-accounted inventory transactions • In-Correct INV-GL Reconciliation process 22
  • How to find out reconciliation differences? General Material Ledger Inventory Account Value Balance 1 2 3 4 5Identify the Separate out Within the Run relevant Compare thecorrect balances for organization Distribution Distributiondifference by each segregate reports for reports withrunning the inventory differences by each of the the GL reportsPeriod Close organization transactional transactionalreconciliation areas areasreport. (Receiving, Material, Intransit, etc.) 23
  • Important reports useful in Inventory Reconciliation Various reports available in Oracle Inventory and Oracle General Ledger : Period Close Reconciliation Report Period Close Value Summary Report Material Account Distribution Summary Report Inventory Value Report Material Account Distribution Detail Report WIP Account Distribution Report Account Analysis - (180 Char) Journals - (180 Char) 24
  • Tips and tricks of Inventory Reconciliation 25
  • Tips and tricks of Inventory Reconciliation – Set Ups In GL carefully design Parent-Child relationship for INV accts Ensure only “Asset” sub inventories are considered for grouping in GL Enable Reconciliation flag while defining Segment values Define Cross-validation rules to prevent unwanted combinations Define Security rules to prevent use of wrong combinations All Cost elements to have different GL valuation accts Ensure “Transfer to GL” is set to “Yes” under Costing Information Subinventory level accounts to be different from Org level accts Different Receiving account for each INV ORG Do not check “Allow Negative Balances” unless highly necessary 26
  • Tips and tricks of Inventory Reconciliation - Transactions Ideally only one inventory period to be kept open so that no back-dated transactions are performed Do not use Valuation accts while processing Miscellaneoustransactions Use single acct for all Cost Update transactions for that INV ORG Prevent use of valuation accts while processing Physical Inventory andCycle Count adjustments Do not use Material Valuation accts while processing non-inventorytransactions such as Manual JV, AP/AR/FA Transactions, etc. 27
  • Tips and tricks of Inventory Reconciliation - Reports Maintain a list of all reports required for Reconciliation so that criticalreports are not missed out Schedule all the transactional reports you require for INVReconciliation Run reports after all transactions are costed and not before Cut-off date for reports must be the period end date Incase of high transaction volumes run ‘Create Accounting – CostManagement’ program on a daily basis 28
  • Tips and tricks of Inventory Reconciliation - Reco Process Make use of drilldown from GL to view Inventory/WIP transactions Always reconcile on period end date and not in between periods Proceed to close the INV periods only when the reconciliation tallies Incase of differences reconcile individual ORGS/SUB INV separately Create a log of Reconciliation findings for future references Ensure there are no INV transactions… created but not interfaced to GL created and interfaced to GL but not imported for posting un-posted in GL Always refer Metalink Notes for smooth reconciliations Costing Reports and Reconciliation [ID 291005.1] 11i/R12 - Resolving Period Close Pending Transaction [ID 242927.1] Resolving Period Close Pending Transaction R12 [ID 1069492.1]” 29
