1713747 - Wrong Tax Event for Third-Party Purchase Orders. Tax Country Code of Foreign Account is Wrongly Fetched for Tax Determination


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

  1. Go to the Sales Orders work center.
  2. Go to the Sales Orders view.
  3. Choose New -> Sales Order.
  4. Choose an account located abroad.
  5. Go to the Items tab.
  6. Set the Fulfillment as External and select a domestic supplier.
  7. Fill in all other mandatory details.
  8. Choose Save and then Release.
  9. Go to the Document Flow tab.
  10. Open the follow-up purchase order.
  11. Go to the Items tab and then Taxes subtab.
  12. 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.
