Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Business Configuration work center.
  2. Select the Overview view.
  3. Search for Tax Date*

No records found


The system does not have any configuration aimed for the determination of the Tax Date in documents.
The Tax Date is designed to become the Invoicing date or the document's creation date.


This is the system expected behavior.

You can manually change the date of the document by navigating to the Taxes subtab. We will use a Sales Order document as an example:

  1. Go to the Sales Orders work center.
  2. Select the Sales Orders view.
  3. Click Edit.
  4. Click View All.
  5. Navigate to the Items tab.
  6. Select the Taxes subtab.

An alternative option may be to check the SAP Customer Influence Platform to submit an idea.

  1. If you are a partner: please use or the Partnerfinder.
  2. If you are a customer:

    a. Contact your the Account Executive
    b. Check the link
