Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Sales Order Work center.
  2. Go to Sales Orders View.
  3. Search and open Sales Order XYZ (XYZ refers to Sales Order ID which is affected).
  4. Click on View All and go to Items tab.
  5. Select the affected Line Item and go to Taxes subtab.
  6. See that the Tax Type and/or Tax Rate Type are for example Standard 19%.
  7. Now for the selected Line Item, double click on the Product's ID Hyperlink and open its Master Data.
  8. Go to Taxes tab and see that the information maintained in there is different.


This is happening because you have defined a Region ABC on the Product Master Data but the Region used in Sales Order is DEF.

For example if you have setup Reduced Tax Rate type for region ABC, it would not be applicable for region DEF even though the Country is same.


The reduced Tax Rate Type needs to be setup for Region DEF which is used in the Sales Order.

This is exception in case of Spain and France because there is no region based tax calculation for countries like Spain and France. Hence the Region for those countries should be empty.
