Transfer pricing for inter-branch and/or inter-company

Many companies have branches or subsidiaries that buy and sell from one another. Customers want ability to create an AP bill or SO invoice where the 'customer/vendor' is another branch. When released, the transaction should automatically create the corresponding entry in the other branch (AP bill creates SO invoice, SO invoice creates AP bill). 

Example: Company has wholesale and retail divisions. Wholesale purchases in bulk and inventories items. Retail branch/company enters AP bill or purchase order when ordering from wholesale division. 

Example 2: Company has subsidiaries (created for tax purposes) where one purchases and manages inventory while the other distributes the inventory. The purchasing company adds value that is reflected in a markup that needs to be passed to the other branches. The markup can be different for different products.

    Ran into another opportunity that requires PO/SO transfer pricing between companies/branches.

    1. Branch/Company A creates PO to purchase goods from another branch/company (vendor on PO).

    2. Acumatica automatically creates a Sales Order in Branch/Company B (with Branch/Company A as customer) when PO changes to open status.

    Reasons:

    a. Need transfer pricing

    b. Need physical documents for audit (see: http://ww2.cfo.com/tax/2016/10/smb-cfos-care-transfer-pricing/)

    I may need to walk away from an opportunity because this is critical to their distribution of goods between companies/countries.

    I currently have two customers and a prospect looking for this functionality. Acumatica can be a differentiator with inter-company/branch functionality.  This is an integral piece of a multi-branch accounting.

    We constantly face this requirement. In Europe and according to EU vat regulation this is a requirement when trading between intercompanies. Currently we have 2 opportunities, asking for this requirement, one of which is considering this requirement as one of the main differentiators.

    Currently have a client in Canada also that would benefit from this. Mother Company (CAD) pays the bills for several other offices (USD, EURO, RMB).

    I'm a current Acumatica customer whose operations would significantly benefit from this functionality

    Registered - thanks, Doug. Could this possibly be used to facilitate Due/To Due/From automation across tenants, as Sammy is suggesting?
