2987763 - Time dependent tax is not considered in sales process


Time-dependent taxes are defined in the "Display Tax Information per Country" app. However, the tax rates are not considered in the sales process.


  • SAP S/4HANA Cloud
  • Sales

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create a new sales order in the "Create Sales Order" app.
  2. Check the tax rate on sales order item conditions.
  3. The tax rate is not determined fromthe time-dependent tax settings.


Time-dependent taxes are currently not considered in the sales process by design. The reason is to achieve a better decoupling between the tax-relevant fields in financials and logistics which includes sales and purchasing.

Sales has more than 30 fields, purchasing has about 10 tax-relevant fields, financials has much fewer dependencies.


Please always use the "Set Tax Rates - Sales" app to maintain the tax rate with a different validity if needed. This setting is considered in the sales process.
