Cause

This is system standard behavior. In the Customer Invoice Request to Customer Invoice scenario, the Automatic Tax Determination indicator is set to false, because the Invoice request passes the tax code to the Invoice, hence externally passed. This is because the same taxes should be applied to Invoice Request and Invoice. Hence the tax code is copied from Invoice Request, which results in the Automatic Tax Determination indicator in Invoice to be set to False.

Resolution

This is system standard behavior.
