RE:[sap-log-sd] What is the proper account to use in Toll charges?

Reply from SAP_EZ on Jan 4 at 12:02 AM
The cost of bringing your fuel to market includes the cost of transportation tolls, and therefore when the fuel is sold, the cost of the fuel and the tolls should then be recognized in the same period as the revenue.

This is the matching principle.

If you want to debit a separate account for the fuel versus the toll costs, that is fine too. There will probably be some analysis performed later which would prefer the direct cost of the fuel to be viewed separately from ancillary costs such as tolls - and for that reason I would personally use different commitment items to collect the charges. You can always add two items together, but you can not pull them apart easily if not collected separately.
