2912429 - Supplier Invoice is Correctly Submitted via SII Return Even Though no Tax Number is Maintained


You have created a supplier invoice for SII reporting, which got processed successfully even though no tax data was set up in the supplier's master.

You expect an error being raised in the SII return due to missing tax number, however the error is not raised.


SAP Business ByDesign.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Tax Management work center.
  2. Go to VAT Returns view.
  3. Show all and find the concerned SII return.
  4. Open the return and go to Tax Return tab.

You see a supplier invoice has been processed, even though there is no tax number for the associated business partner.


For non ES-Spain and non-EU suppliers, if there is no tax number maintained in the business partner, the supplier ID is sent as tax number in the field IDOTRO ID with IDOTRO ID type as 06 (Otro Documento Probatorio). Due to that, there is no error reported even though there is no tax number maintained for the supplier in the system


This is the designed system behavior.
