3036835 - Field “235 - Reductions in earnings (discounts, rebates, bad debt losses)” in Compliance Report CH_VAT_DCL


The Compliance Report CH_VAT_DCL does not contain the field “235 - Reductions in earnings (discounts, rebates, bad debt losses)”. All the reductions in earning are displayed in the field “200 - Earnings”.




This is because according to MWSt-Info / 15 Abrechnung und Steuerentrichtung / Erster Teil (I. Umsatz) / Number 235 such revenue reductions like sales discounts, cash discounts and losses on sales for taxable services and so on "can" be deducted under tax box 235.


As it can be seen in the attached files S4HC_Control_Calculation_Sheet_CH_ACR_VAT_Config_V06.pdf 1-2 ( if the TDT Time-Dependent Taxes is activated the CH_S4HC_Control_Calculation_Sheet_ACR_VAT_TDT_Config_V01.pdf 1-2 will be used ), there are no separate S4HC tax codes available for such revenue reductions, because of this "can" clause and moreover because they are automatically considered under tax box 200.

Since normally also the final collected revenue (what the customer finally paid resp. the company received) differs from the reported one due to such discounts etc. it needs to be checked either way during the annual reconciliation at the end of the year if there are differences between the reported and the actual revenue (due to discounts or whatever) which then need to be reported via separate VAT correction report.

However, it is possible to create separate tax codes for such revenue reductions via the Manage Your Solution app (SSCUI 101016 Define Tax Codes for Sales and Purchases for new tax codes, SSCUI 103011 Define Enhanced Tax Box Mapping for Tax Box mapping, SSCUI 100297 Automatic Account Determination for account determination).
