When posting an invoice using APP 'Create Outgoing Invoices' (AppID: FB70) to a UK Customer, warning message "Document contains VAT reg.no. GB&& but no EC-relevant tax code" (Message no. F5407) appears even though UK is no longer part of EU community.
Reproducing the Issue
Posting an invoice using APP 'Create Outgoing Invoices' (AppID: FB70) to a UK Customer.
This behavior is due to the fact that the tax number is maintained in the business partner master data. In addition, UK is still treated as an EU country, regardless of the EU member flag in customizing. This is needed for transactions relating to the period before the effective withdrawal date and, potentially, for transactions covered by the Northern Ireland Protocol.
To avoid this warning, you could delete the tax number from the business partner master data.
