Customer tax classification

Hi All:

I have one customer extended to several sales areas.

I'd like to maintain different tax classification for various sales areas,

for example tax classification '1' for sales area 1000, '0' for sales area 2000.

It seems SAP does not expect to maintain like this, tax calssificaion will be changed automaticlly once you update in other sales area.

Could you share some advice for this?

    This is standard behaviour. As Customer Sales Area data relevant data is stored in Table KNVV and Customer Tax Indicator relevant data is stored in Table KNVI. And in Table KNVI is maintained based on country, not Sales Area.

    Refer my response in following post:

    - Tax Classification based on Currency

    Which clearly states the reason for such behaviour and solution to control this.

    Thanks, JP

    Tax Classification is based on the Region of the customer master and based on the region Tax % are Maintained

    Hope Region wont be changing Frequently

      Hi Stephen,

      Is it the same material which is taxable / non taxable when sold through different distribution channels ?

      If not,

      Option 1

      I think you can maintain 0 in material masters for non taxable materials. The condition table should have both, customer and materials tax classification fields as input parameters (other the client specific required fields).

      In the VK11 against the condition table you can maintain record as:

      Customer Tax Class. Mate. Tax Clas. Tax Rate

      1 1 10%

      Option 2

      You can also change the tax classification manually in sales order, in billing document tab. Altenately, with the help of ABAP you can do some enhancement to get the desired tax classification automatically in sales order while sales order creation

      Hope it helps
