Special Procurements Vendor Consignment Scenario

Vendor Consignment

- Consignment is functionality in MM purchasing, when you purchase the material from vendor on consignment basis.

- We will provide the premises to vendor in our stores; however we are not responsible for the stock.

- The stock is legally owned by the vendor only

- When the delivery comes, we will make a GR even then, stock still legally by the vendor. If you look at our stock status, it shows as ‘Vendor Consignment’ stock.

- As and when we want the material, whatever the quantity it is we will simply transfer the vendor consignment stock in to our company own stock.

- Vendor need not send the invoice or bill for with drawl quantity. Company will settle his consignment liabilities
