3487510 - Reverse Charge is Not Working When Using a PDI Tax Code in a Supplier Invoice


A custom tax code created for a non-localized country via PDI Solution (SAP Cloud Applications Studio) is being used in a supplier invoice. 

The expectation is that it works with reverse charge mechanism, in such a way that two lines appear under Taxes, one with Due Category Receivable and the other with Payable, but this is not happening: only one line with Due Category Receivable is displayed.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Supplier Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to the Invoices and Credit Memos view.
  3. Find and open the respective supplier invoice.
  4. Click View All.
  5. Open Items tab.
  6. Open Taxes sub-tab.
  7. Notice that tax code YXZ is selected (YXZ means a custom tax code created via a PDI Solution).
  8. Notice that under Taxes there's just one line displayed, with Due Category Receivable, when the expectation was a second line with Due Category Payable as well, meaning the Reverse Charge tax calculation.


The tax code XYZ has been assigned to tax event ABC (ABC means the tax event), also created via PDI Solution.

The tax event ABC was configured for reverse charge, but an entry in the BC Set Accounting Tax Attributes (Business Configuration Object AttributesforTaxEventTaxType) was not created.


For the custom tax code XYZ to work as a Reverse Charge tax code in a supplier invoice, an entry has to be created in BC set Accounting Tax Attributes (Business Configuration Object AttributesforTaxEventTaxType) against the Tax Event ABC with "ACC_TAX_TYPE = "5    Self-assessed VAT" (this is the AccountingTaxTypeCode). Only once this is maintained the custom tax will start to work as a Reverse Charge tax code in a supplier invoice.
