3403432 - Tax Date, Tax Fullfillment Date, Tax Reporting Date, Tax Rate valid from and Date for Determining Tax Rates in Import Supplier Invoices Template - S/4HANA Cloud


In Import Supplier Invoices template it is not clear what the different tax related terms are for.



Reproducing the Issue

  1. Enter App Import Supplier Invoices.
  2. Download template and check the following fields:
  • TAXDETERMINATIONDATE (Date for Determining Tax Rates) column AP
  • TAXREPORTINGDATE (Tax Reporting Date) column AW
  • TAXFULFILLMENTDATE (Tax Fulfillment Date) column AX



Tax Date (Date for Determining Tax Rates) determines the date for calculating TDT time-dependent tax (depending on customizing settings in the company code) either from the posting date or from the document date.

In the excel the technical name is TAXDETERMINATIONDATE, the description is 'Date for Determining Tax Rates'.

The error message 'Tax calculation date must be filled' (FOT_TDT004) also relates to the missing tax determination date in the template.


Tax Reporting Date for tax authority.


Tax Fulfillment Date is the date when tax becomes chargeable. 

Additional information:

'Date for Determining Tax Rate' field:  The value was used to calculate the tax rate in terms of time dependent tax. TDT could be activated based on the company code. If it is activated, the tax date value is mandatory for creating a draft supplier invoice. If  TDT is not activated for another company codes, the fields is optional. The field is not marked as required field because the status is based on the TDT setting.

'Tax rate Valid-From' field: During tax code creation (TDT is enabled and active) validity of the tax rate needs to be defined. The same tax code filled in different time period, the tax rate may be different (it is not the tax determination date!).
