Tax classification for foreign countries


Dear SAP experts,

I would really appreciate your help with the following problem.

As far as I understand, you can only maintain tax classification data for a certain country in the material master, if you have defined plants in this country. Is this really the case?

If this is true, then we have a problem. We want to sell certain goods from Germany to Austria. The goods will be delivered from our German plant. However, we cannot maintain tax classification for Austria, since we don't have an Austrian plant in the sales area. What can we do? Will creating a dummy Austrian plant in our sales area solve the problem?

Thanks in advance for your help,
