Reproducing the Issue

Create a New Custom Duty Invoice.
Fill the details and go to Tax tab
Here you cannot find the Tax code for Norway.


 Currently there is no tax code active for tax event 201 that si related to custom duty invoices.


  • Go to Tax on Goods and Services fine tune activity
  • Click on Tax codes view
  • Filter with Country - Norway
  • Here, you can find the Tax code 201 - Import VAT (Customs Invoice) - Obsolete from 01.01.2017.that has tax event 201

Ideally 201 was provided as a tax event for custom duty invoices for Norway but the same was delimited on 01.01.2017 as due to a legal change in NO ( from 01.01.2017, the import VAT should be considered as reverse charge.

The solution proposed back in 2017 to handle this issue was to have to use the following two tax codes in the Business Object manual tax entry to declare in the tax register:
• 202 - Import VAT Input Tax Posting * from 01.01.2017)
• 502 - Import VAT Output Tax Posting * from 01.01.2017)

You receive VAT invoices where all the amount is a VAT amount (100%). The standard process in BYD is to use  the invoice line, an item type “Import VAT Debit Item”. But since 2017 there is no tax code  that allows this anymore from 2017.

So Create a new TaxCode  for Country NO - Norway with TaxEvent 201.

But this TaxCode will not available on the Manual Tax Entry Voucher.

Tax event 201 cannot be made available in manual tax entry.

Manual tax entry does not support tax only posting.

Please use the  this new tax code  (  with tax event 201 ) with custom duty invoices only.
