TAX Type V/s TAX Code - WPUUMS01


I will be creating a WPUUMS IDOC from CAR to post into SAP ERP.

In this IDOC we have two segments with contain the tax information








I would like to know

1. what is the different between the two ?

2. In POSDM.CAR, we only configure TAX Types. Hence, am I correct in assuming that the segment W1WPU05 is filled and not *04 when created an IDOC from POSDM/CAR.

    Hello Dheeraj,

    In POS-Outbound we sent the Tax code which is mapped to a Tax rate by POS or by a external tax calculating system (like vertex).Ideally in POS inbound we consider only the tax amount calculated by POS or vertex hence only Tax type is configured in POSDM/segment W1WPU05...

    We also have a option of re-calculating tax in ERP while posting sale (tax code will be populated for each accounting entries)....but this not preferred as this might leads to discrepancy in tax amount /reporting/collection....

    • Hi Akash,

      Did you figure this out ?

      I am at a similar position as you, where the customer wants the TAX procedure to be called instead of just creating condition type and posting to a GL account.

      The argument for this is that if we do not use a TAX procedure the tax details will not show up in VAT reports !!!
