In a third-party purchase order, the supplier address and the buying company address are within the same country. The ship-to address, derived from from the account (end-customer) is located abroad. In the tax details, the tax country code is the one of the foreign account. Consequently, a tax code corresponding to a foreign acquisition is defaulted instead of one corresponding to a domestic acquisition.
Reproducing the Issue
- Go to the Sales Orders work center.
- Go to the Sales Orders view.
- Choose New -> Sales Order.
- Choose an account located abroad.
- Go to the Items tab.
- Set the Fulfillment as External and select a domestic supplier.
- Fill in all other mandatory details.
- Choose Save and then Release.
- Go to the Document Flow tab.
- Open the follow-up purchase order.
- Go to the Items tab and then Taxes subtab.
- The tax event is incorrect (foreign acquisition instead of domestic).
This is a new requirement. At present the tax determination is based on the ship-from address of the supplier and the ship-to address of the account (final recipient) rather than the bill-to address for your company.
The above requirement will be part of a future release of SAP Business ByDesign. Until then, the tax details for the purchase orders must be maintained manually.
