If there is a localized version of the SAP Business ByDesign solution available for country XYZ its country specific tax return types are available, provided country XYZ has been added to your solution.

  3. In Step 1 - Country and Type of Business you can see all the countries currently selected in your solution. You notice that country XYZ does not appear here.
  4. Click on the Edit Countries link.
  5. Select country XYZ in the Available Countries table and move it over to the Selected Countries table.
  6. Press Next until Step 5- Review and then press Finish to confirm. Automatically all basic financial settings will be saved for country X.
  7. Therefore, the tax return types of country XYZ will now be available as well.

If there is no localized version for country XYZ available you need to send an case to Support and request to make the country specific tax return types available in the Company Tax Arrangements of the country XYZ's tax authority.


For countries that are either not supported by the system or are not included in the scope of your business solution, the system selects all open tax items of the country of the tax authority during the tax return runs for generic tax returns. Tax return types for generic tax returns are only provided for certain countries. For more information please view the SAP Business ByDesign online help document Generic Tax Return As Tax Return Type. Should the country of your choice not be listed in this document, you can contact SAP through a case for delivery of the generic tax return for this country.
