    Hi Pratib,
    do you mean aggregation on MIRO screen ?
    If so, aggregation layouts will be helpful if you are processing a list of invoices with a lot of line items. You can aggregate values per Material, Plant, Purchase Order and you can see the others in MIRO screen under PO Reference tab in the list of Layouts.
    SAP Help may also be useful

    Do the movement types in MIGO determine whether or not an item stored in the plant warehouse and is issued to an order is taxable or not.

    I’m trying to determine where this can be seen when the sales & use tax reports are done at the end of each month rather than manually looking through the list to detemine each and every line item issued.
