2918930 - Down Payment Tax Code for Belgium


You are creating a Down Payment document where the Tax Country is Belgium and the system determines Tax Code 300 - Non-taxable sale in Belgium.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Sales Orders work center.
  2. Select the Sales Orders view.
  3. Search for the ID ABC (ABC represents the ID of the Sales Order document).
  4. Click Create Down Payment button.
  5. Enter Tax Country Belgium.
  6. The Tax Code 300 - Non-taxable sale in Belgium is determined


Based on previous requirements, no VAT (Value-Added Tax) was required to be calculated when a Down Payment would be created for an advanced payment. With Release 2108 we enabled all Tax Codes for Down Payments.

However, the Tax Code 300 will be automatically determined by the system.  


You can manually select the respective Tax code from the drop down list.

This is the current system behavior.
