Global Next / Sabrix Integration with SAP

We are trying to convert our SAP applications to use an external call to SABRIX to calculate taxes. I understand that when you configure an external tax engine in SAP, certain tax calculation functions are turned disabled (AR Cash Discounts, Deferred VAT, Prompt Payment Discounts, Down Payments & certain AP processes)

I am looking for documentation from SAP that details what exactly you no longer can do if you begin calling an external tax engine. I have searched OSS notes and I am at a dead end. HELP!???

For example, if you have a cash discount or prompt payment discount that needs to be deducted from the gross amount to then use as the Tax base, what exactly is disabled when you try to calculate the tax using an external engine. Is it the settings at the company code or jurisdiction levels that you set to determine the base amount to calculate taxes on sales/purchases?

Thanks for your direction to any existing documentation that can help me understand this issue!

    Hi Salman,

    The external Tax Engine can be activated by country. For all countries not assigned to the Tax Engine, SAP standard tax calculation and determination is used

    The external Tax Engine can be activated by company code. Settings made here overwrite the settings made by country.

    There should be a RFC between SAP and Sabrix to call the Tax Engine and return the tax rates from Sarbix system.

    SAP has some automated design functionalities which support to sabrix and all the required configurations will be done at this level.

    At present I do not have any documents related this, but sure let me find out and send you some time later.

    Hi Salman,

    1704994 - Composite SAP Note: Notes for External Tax Interface

    The above Note should guide you in the right direction.

    • Hi Salman,

      There are RFCs that are set up to pull the tax rates from Sabrix at every point of transaction viz.,

      at the time of creation of Sales, Change of Sales Order, similarly at the time of creation of Billing invoice and change of Billing Invoice and finally releasing the Billing Invoice to Accounting.

      At each every stage the calls are made through RFCs to get the rates that are set up from Sabrix, if I remember correctly the below RFCs are called apart from a Jurisdiction RFC

      RFC_CALCULATE_TAXES

      RFC_UPDATE_TAXES

      RFC_FORCE_TAXES

      Warm Regards
