SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Sales Orders work center.
  2. Select the Sales Orders view.
  3. Search for the ID ABC (ABC represents the ID of the Sales Order document).
  4. Click Create Down Payment button.
  5. Enter Tax Country Belgium.
  6. Click on Tax Code.

Single option displayed: 300 - Non-taxable sale in Belgium.


Based on previous requirements, no VAT (Value-Added Tax) was required to be calculated when a Down Payment would be created for an advanced payment.

As this has changed, our colleagues from the development team are planning on releasing this enhancement in a future release.


This is the current system behavior.
