You have created tax content using SAP Cloud Application Studio, the tax type description is displayed as <YL> and not XXX (XXX represents the custom tax type created through Localization Toolkit).

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Sales Order work center.
  2. Open the Sales Order XYZ(represents the Sales Order ID).
  3. Go to the Pricing and Invoicing tab and then the Pricing tab.
  4. Here under Item pricing, you see description as <YL>(%) and not XXX(%).


If the tax content is created using SAP Cloud Application Studio, the tax type description is shortened with the first two characters of the solution key in the pricing view.

SAP delivered tax types display the right descriptions in the pricing view.


This is the current system behaviour.
