3057987 - Set up Threshold Check Needed for Turnover Tax Act


The goal of this article is to describe possible solutions to address the excise duty law §13b section 10 of the German turnover tax act.

This is a consulting solution to enable the legal regulations for the reverse charge mechanism to be implemented in Sales.
After you have implemented this solution, you must perform extensive tests.

According to the law, if - within one business transaction with a taxable person - the value of products of a special kind exceeds EUR 4999.99, the reverse charge mechanism must be applied. Products of a special kind include, for example, cell phones and integrated circuits. This means that the tax liability is transferred to the service recipient. In the sales order, a zero-percentage tax rate must be found, and in the respective invoice, a text must be printed to inform recipients about their obligations.
