Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Tax Category Type(s) are being sent from source system to SAP S/4HANA Cloud system via Business Partner Webservice API
  2. The error "Value is longer than the maximum permitted length &: "ABC"" is raised

Cause

The Tax Category Type will be taken from two segments, CountryCode and TaxIdentificationNumberTypeCode as per the example below would return the value for DE0

-<TaxNumber actionCode="04">
<CountryCode>DE</CountryCode>
<TaxIdentificationNumberTypeCode>0</TaxIdentificationNumberTypeCode>
<PartyTaxID schemeID="">1234567</PartyTaxID>
