2593434 - The System Does Not Calculate Income Related Expenses For Lodging Per Diems For Business Trips From Germany to Foreign Countries

Symptom

You create an Expense Report with a Business Trip from Germany to a foreign country. You expect that in the Expense Report under lodging per diems the Tax-exempt Amount and the Reimbursement Amount should not be the same.  However this is not the case, both amounts are the same. The Income-Related Expense is therefore zero. Instead you expect that the system calculates Income-Related Expenses.

Environment

  • SAP Business ByDesign
  • SAP Cloud for Travel and Expense

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Travel and Expenses Work Center.
  2. Switch to the Expense Reports View.
  3. Show all Expense Reports, select the desired report and press Go.
  4. Press Preview - Reimbursement Details.
  5. Scroll down until you find the section lodging per diems.

You can see that the Tax-Exempt Amount and the Reimbursement are the same. The Income-Related Expense is therefore zero as well.

Cause

In Germany no Income-Related Expenses are calculated for lodging per diems for Business Trips from Germany to foreign countries. These Income-Related Expenses are zero. Therefore the Tax-exempt Amount and the Reimbursement Amount have to be the same.

Resolution

The system works as expected. According to German Law the Income-Related Expenses are zero for lodging per diems from Germany to foreign countries.
