2764948 - Not All Tax Codes Are Available When Creating a Down Payment Request

Symptom

You create a new Down Payment request and maintained your own Tax Codes in the Business Configuration Activiy 'Tax on Goods and Services'

However, these are not available in the dropdown list.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Supplier Invoicing work centre.
  2. Go to the Common Tasks sub view.
  3. Click New Down payment Request.
  4. Fill in Buying Company XYZ and select a ABC (XYZ represents the Company ID; ABC represents the Product ID).

 The Tax Codes which are maintained in Business Configuration starting with Z are not available in the dropdown list.

  1. Open the Business Configuration work centre.
  2. Find and Open the Tax on Goods and Services Activity.
  3. Open Define Tax Codes.

 You can see here that Tax Codes starting with Z are maintained and expect them to be shown in Down Payment Request.

Cause

The tax codes which are not 100% deductible are not shown in down payment request. Non deductible tax codes are not part of down payment request. Many tax codes fall under same category and that why they are not shown in down payment request document. When a company creates a Down Payment for a Supplier, the Tax Amounts should be fully deductible. That means that once the taxes are reported in the supplier invoices, the company can claim the credit against the taxes reported in the down payment. If the Tax Code in the Down Payment is non-deductible, those taxes will be considered as expense for the Company and then they can never claim that money back.

Resolution

This is the expected system behaviour.
