COPA values derived from Sales Order during Billing posting

Dear all experts,

Due to some valid reasons, during Billing creation, the condition values for Tax has been revised to a different amount.

This is caused by the SD setting where Pricing Type is set as "G" (Copy pricing elements unchanged and redetermine taxes).

Now the Sales Order and Billing are having different condition values for the same condition types.

However the values posted to COPA is derived from Sales Order instead of billing.

Can any COPA experts confirm this is the standard behaviour of Sales Order?

Or is there any standard COPA config we can change it to derive condition values from billing instead of Sales Order?

Thank you.

    Dear Sebastian,

    It's an interesting question.

    To be honest I've never came across a scenario that CO-PA relevant conditions were different in SO and billing document. And never came across scenario where taxes are posted in CO-PA.

    I'm not aware of any CO-PA config that defines whether Billing document or SO is used as source for CO-PA update.

    Please have a look at 2 SAP Notes:
    20254 - INFO: Values from SD not transferred to CO-PA

    62536 - Info: Conditions in Profitability Analysis

    SAP Note 20254 says:

    "d) Tax conditions are not posted in CO-PA"

    So I'm a bit surprised and interested in how you've managed to update tax in CO-PA.

    How is the tax condition defined? Is it assigned to cost element of type '11' or '12'?

    SAP Note 62536 says:

    "3.1 Actual postings

    When actual postings are transferred to CO-PA, the system always first copies
    the data from the sender document (sales order or billing document)."

    Could not find any more details. Maybe CO-PA gurus like @Waman Shirwaicar can shed some light.

    Cancel the COPA documents and re-post to resolve the issue.

    Transaction Codes:

    KE4S00 -Cancel COPA documents

    KE4S - Transfer SD Billing documents to COPA

    Best Practice is COPA document should be generated at the time of invoice.
