Different tax classification required in CM based on sales org.


I am facing a scenario whereby we have a internal trading customer eg. CUST1 located in the UK. This customer is set up in 2 sales orgs eg. SORG1 and SORG2 which are both located in the UK. But one of the sales org is part of our VAT group and one isn't. So we now have the requirement to have a different tax classification on the customer master for each sales org. SORG1 should have 1 - Liable for taxes and SORG2 should have 2 =  InCO, no tax. But once I change the tax classification in the customer in one sales org it automatically overwrites it in the other.

You you have any idea what i can do to prevent this?

Your help is very much appreciated.

Thanks and kind regards,


P.S. just to mention also when the customer is invoiced the same material is used in both sales orgs

    I just figured it out myself. All i have to do is create a condition in VK11 based on sales org.

    • Hi Siva : )

      In VK11 we have a key combination radio button called Country/ Destination Ctr./Plant/TaxClCust/TaxClMat.

      I think it might be a custom key combination (so you might have to create a siliar one for yourself), but basically all I had to enter there was Country = GB, Destination Coutry = GB, plant SORG1 (it's called the same as the sales org and is linked 1-1), tax classification on Customer = 2 (because I want the central setting on the customer to be 2 = ICO, no tax), tax classification on material 1 = full tax goods and enter relevat tax code.

      Hope this helps.

      It worked for me.

      Kind regards,
