Summary
Symptom

The symptom is the same as in Note 119680:
In the master data of a sold-to party, for each country a VAT registration number can be stored.When you create a billing document, the system should select the VAT registration number of the sold-to party which is relevant for the destination country of the billing document.

Other terms

VF01 VF02 LV60AF0K LAND1, UIN, tax number, KNAS, STCEG
VAT registration number, UST-ID

Reason and Prerequisites

The note is only relevant if the system should use the tax indicatorsand the tax number of the sold-to party and not that of the ship-to party or payer in the billing document.

Solution

With this note, the system selects the tax number of the sold-to party, based on the destination country of the billing document (that is, with the country of the ship-to party).For compatibility reasons, the previously valid rule for the determination of the VAT registration number was enhanced with the characteristic 'C'. (Customizing:'Sales and Distribution' -> 'Basic Functions' -> 'Taxes' -> 'Maintain Sales Tax Identification Number Determination')
Rule 'C' corresponds to the standard priority rule 'BLANK' except for the third case.The VAT registration number is determined by the tax determination country.

In general, the tax determination in SD occurs depending on the country of the delivering plant (departure country) and the country of the ship-to party (destination country).The access of customer and material master for the determination of the tax classification occurs with the departure country.The access of the condition records occurs with the departure country and the destination country.

  • You can change the tax departure country manually on the order header.If this field is set, it replaces the departure country during the access to a tax condition record.The system still reads the tax classification material fields with the original departure country.
  • You can change the tax destination country manually on the order header and - it replaces the destination country of receipt during the access to a tax condition record.The system also reads the tax classification customer and the VAT registration number fields of the payer and sold-to party (not of the ship-to party) with the original tax destination country.
Enhancement of the value range of domain XSTCEG
