2718110 - Tax Number is missing in Billing form for some countries eg. Switzerland, Norway etc.


  • The form SDBIL_CI_STANDARD_US is used for generating the billing form. On the billing document the Customer VAT Registration field (VBRK-STCEG) for some countries eg. Switzerland (Tax Number category : CH1), Norway (tax category : NO1) etc. is not getting populated with a value although it is maintained in business partners (KNA1-STCD1).
  • The field VAT registration no is empty in the billing document header screen.




The field VAT registration no in billing document header refers to DB field VBRK-STCEG. It should get data from DB field KNA1-STCEG from business partner. The Customer VAT Registration in the form is also linked with STCEG field.

However, in the app ’Manage Business Partner Master Data’, if tax number category is CH1, the field KNA1-STCD1 is used to store tax number. Therefore, the field VBRK-STCEG is empty. This is working correctly.


Use the Globalization Form Data Provider FDP_V3_BD_STANDARD_LO_GLO_GEN instead of FDP_V3_BD_STANDARD to print VAT Registration (STCD1) for Switzerland.

You can get the tax number (KNA1-STCD1) value from the Form Data Provider FDP_V3_BD_STANDARD_LO_GLO_GEN, TaxationTermsNode -> TaxNumber1.

The form template should be decided based on your requirement. For Switzerland there is a country specific form SDBIL_CI_STANDARD_CH. By default the STCD1 is not available in the form, but it is available in the OData xml so you can add the field and map.
