2981595 - How to determine the tax reporting date be identical to the posting date or the document date on S/4HANA Cloud?


How to determine the tax reporting date be identical to the posting date or the document date? Which Configuration Activity is available to make the setting accordingly?


 SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open app "Create Supplier Invoice - Advanced" or app "Post General Journal Entries", enter parameters (Posting Date and Journal Entry Date) accordingly.
  2. Click Tax, then the field Tax Reporting Date will be automatically generated by the system based on Posting Date or Journal Entry Date accordingly to your setting.


By default, the system proposes either the posting date or the document date. Which date the system proposes depends on your Customizing settings.


You can use Configuration Activity Company Code Master Data (SSCUI ID 100135) to change the "Tax Determination from document date" setting.
According to the standard design of the Configuration Activity, there is a field named "Tax Determination from document date", if you don't tick it, the tax reporting date will be the same as posting date. By default, the field "Tax Determination from document date" is not ticked.

Please take a look at the blog Tax Determination from Document Date for detailed steps.
