(Hotfix ID: 1000009716)
  • For Spain, a new tax code 504, Supply of Goods and Services, Reverse Charge, has been created to handle the reverse charge scenario. The subject of the new code is 'No exempt' with the tax rate as 0%. The document using this tax code gets reported in the 'Tax Return', 'Modelo 340', 'Modelo 340 - Substitution', and 'SII - Outgoing Invoices' tax returns. In all the tax returns except SII - Outgoing Invoices tax return, documents using tax code 504 get reported in the returns.
    For the SII- Outgoing Invoices tax return, in addition to the reporting of the document, the mapping will be as follows:
    • On header level, the subject should be 'No exempt'. Tax type 'S2' or 'S3' is to be filled, depending on the content of the document. If all lines of the document are subject to reverse charge (in this case, tax event 504) the tax type must be 'S2'. If only some of the lines of the document are subject to reverse charge and others are not, the tax type must be 'S3'. If both the mentioned conditions are not applicable (all lines of the document are not subject to reverse charge), the existing tax type 'S1' will be filled.
    • On line item level, tax rate and tax amount are zero for the line items subject to reverse charge. There will be no automatic tax determination for this tax event. The end user will have to manually select the tax code 504 during creation of the document. (Hotfix ID: 1000008987)

Project Management


  • In SAP Cloud Applications Studio, when you create a web service based on the Business Object Project, you create or update the nodes TaskExpense or TaskRevenue. You can then update the element GeneralLedgerAccountAliasCode. While executing the web service, the system responds with the error message "Changing GEN_LEDG_ACCOUNT_ALIAS_C-LIST_ID not possible; field is disabled” and rejects the creation or update. With this hotfix, the system processes the creation or update of TaskExpense or TaskRevenue successfully. (Hotfix ID: 1000010271)

Production Lot

  • The Production model now becomes inconsistent if you change Obsolete Bills of Material to Un-obsolete Bills of Material.
