Error: 'Enter a CPF only in conjunction with a natural person'


In SAP Business ByDesign a supplier account is always treated as an organization and NOT as a private individual. Hence, it is not possible to enter the tax number type CPF for a supplier in ByD.


For a private customer the CPF tax number type may be maintained and for Supplier Accounts the CNPJ tax number type can be maintained.
