GL determination for taxes via OB40 alone or both OB40+OVKK???

Dear all,

I have a question to ask. It confuses me all the time.

Scenario: I have a condition type (ex: VAT). Its condition class is D (Taxes). And the condition category is D (Taxes). Its respective GL is 5001234

How should be the GL (5001234) determination?
Should it be via OB40 alone or both OB40+OVKK?

One of my colleagues (Fi Consultant) suggested me to configure in both OB40+OVKK, whereas one more colleague said that configuration should be only in OB40. I am confused here.

My understanding of OB40 configuration:
We create SD Acc Key but we dont use it in OB40.
1. Fi creates Transaction Key (which is named after SD Acc key, to identify the relation between SD condition type and Fi transaction key). All transaction keys are listed in OB40. Transaction key + Chart of Accounts are the parameters in OB40 to determine GL.
2. Fi creates Tax code and it is assigned to condition type in VK11/12.

After this configuration, should I need to again assign the GL (5001234) in OVKK???

Please correct my understanding of OB40 configuration. I need more clarity on Tax code concept.

2nd question: Does Condition category D (Taxes) have any role in GL determination? Because one of my tax condition types had Condition category blank, but still GL was determined correctly. Then what is the use of it?

    Hi MMak,

    VKOA is for revenue account determination , while OB40 is for TAX account determination.So only OB40 is required for tax relevent GL account assignment.

    Secondly condition cateory dosen't play any role in tax GL identification.

    If tax codes are involved, then OB40 alone will suffice your requirement. The account key for that is configured in OBCN. Say an account key MWS is configured in OBCN with tax type as 1 - Output Type can be used in both Tax Procedure and SD Pricing Procedure for a given tax condition type. FYI, Tax Codes are based on Tax Procedure.

    Thanks, JP
