Direct Posting of Sales in FI and month end closing

Dear Experts


I learnt that :


Sales Direct Entries may be posted in FI without posting in SD/MM.


Sales entries must always be posted only through SD process. If this is NOT done (for example freight rate received from third party freight forwarders), then only FI people should know how to reconcile and NOT sd people. Hence I recommend posting your query in FI forum after closing this thread.





My question is , during month-end closing how should FI or accounting address the above direct posting issues?


Apparently, such practice is not right.


There is no trace of the sales in SD MM. There is no corresponding billing doc in SD MM but found in FI .


How should this situation be handled as best practice?


I am BI person but found this issue with FI data not reconciled with SD MM.


I am not sure how the month-end closing was done when there is such data. Yes, the problem was found AFTER month was closed and I loaded the data to BI.



best regards
