Same customer number in different countries

Hello,

we have one customer operating in different countries.We need to have one customer number in different countries for the same customer.

1 )How can we do in SAP. Do we need to leave the country field blank in basic data of customer master ? how we then determine country of customer ?

2) How then system determines the receiving country (of customer) for tax determination ?

regards

sachin

    Hello,

    You can use the same customer as Payer, but you have to create a new one with the other country info such as city, street, country and assign in the business partner of the customer master. The ship-to party will define the destination country in the billing document.

    Regards,

    Hello sachin,

    Why you are looking for same customer for different countries ??

    >> All countries have different Legal and fiscal requirement hence we believe we can not use same customer code for all countries.

    >> At general data level we maintain Tax information which are countries specific. Same customer we can not maintain all countries tax information on Control Data tab.

    Thanks,

    I'm also confused as to why this is a "need" (as opposed to "want"). What purpose would this serve?

    There are many possibilities in SAP to manage different addresses (and as an SD specialist, you should already be aware of them). But none of them offers the same account number for, essentially, different accounts.
