Default VAT GL account for credit notes


Hi SAP experts,

Because of a legal change in Portugal the VAT amounts of the credit notes must be posted into a specific GL account. This is applicable both for costumer and vendor credit notes.

I would like to know if there is an standard solution to post all the VAT line items to a specific GL account for the credit memos. I checked the customizing and I am not aware of such a configuration.

If there is no customizing option, I only consider two choices for this which are:

- To create the new VAT codes (for each of legal rates), to be used specailly for Credit Notes. The new codes assigned to the relevant GLs.

- To make a substitution. when system checks that the doc is a credit note, then substitute the GL account to the one we need post to.

I would like to avoid new codes and also maintain substitutions and user exits iff possible.

Kind Regards
