Hi Experts,

Tax country is NL (Netherlands)

Could you please help me out on this?

Thank you,

    Hi Ali and Vera,

    I checked the table entry and FTXP, EU field is blank.

    Here, what should be the ideal entry? Also, I am able to post with the same tax code for another GL account.

    Please help.

    Thank you,

    Jen

      Dear Jen,

      as you can see in FTXP, generally following EU tax codes can be used:

      1 Delivery of Goods Within the EU

      2 Services Within the EU

      3 Subcontracting Within the EU

      4 Output Tax for Services within the EU

      5 Reverse Charge EU: Service with Tax with Zero Balance

      6 HU: Triangular Deal with Country Outside the EU

      7 As for value '1', but tax balance zero

      8 As for value '3', but tax balance zero

      9 Acquisition Tax or General Tax with Zero Balance

      A Reverse Charge with Tax with Zero Balance

      M Spain: EU Goods Delivery - After Tax-Exempt Import

      H EU Goods Delivery - After Tax-Exempt Import by Fiscal Agent

      B Non-EU-Relevant, No Check on Input Tax Acct/Output Tax Acct

      (H and M are defintely for Spain).

      regarding customizing of the EU code please check following SAP Notes, these can be of help:

      612389

      911113.

      Best regards,

      Vera

    Hi Jennie,

    Check the tax code for the country in FTXP, whether "EU code" check box selected for the tax code in it. If not then select it.  Then only system will allow you to post.

    Regards,

    Mukthar

    Dear Jen,

    generally you receive the message F5407 if you have maintained a VAT number in the customer/vendor master record (STCEG), but the used tax code has no entry in field T007A-EGRKZ (EU code = blank).

    Entering a VAT number into a document is only relevant for the creation of the EC-Sales list.

    So you will continue to get the message F5 407 when you enter a customer/vendor document with a tax code having no entry in field EGRKZ but including VAT registration number.

    Best regards,

    Vera
