SAP Foreign Trade not Supported in S/4 Hana

Dear SAP S/4 HANA Expert,

We are considering to move to S/4 HANA from ECC 6 EHP6, from the simplification list and other related notes 2267310, 2223144, 2205202, we noticed that Foreign Trade transactions and data will no longer supported in S/4 HANA, the notes only mentioned that SAP GTS will be the successor for this business requirement.

Currently we only use Commodity Code/Import Code Number for Foreign Trade and PRODCOM no. in material master for prepare custom invoice which requires to declare the HS Code and grouping, we did not use other standard feature in Foreign Trade module.

My question is:

- How is the SAP GTS Implementation roadmap, and how about the license? can we use existing license for ECC without additional ?

- If we do not implement SAP GTS, can we still maintain commodity code and prodcom in material master? does the data still can flow to the Sales Order and Billing Document? (Note: we plan to use conversion from existing ECC6.0 to S/4 HANA instead of new implementation from scratch)

From the simplification list 1610 we found this can be the show stopper, please kindly inform if you have same experience/ issue and able to solve this, many thanks in advance.

Best Regards,

Andre Hartono

    My comments below. Hope they help.

    Question : How is the SAP GTS Implementation roadmap, and how about the license? can we use existing license for ECC without additional ?

    A: As per the published information from SAP, the GTS solution will be maintained as a separate module. There are some customers of SAP, who have SAP GTS integrated with non-SAP ERP systems as feeder systems. There is a separate license for GTS. I understand from SAP that the GTS license is further divided into what module / functionality you would use in GTS (that should reduce the cost of license)

    Question : If we do not implement SAP GTS, can we still maintain commodity code and prodcom in material master? does the data still can flow to the Sales Order and Billing Document? (Note: we plan to use conversion from existing ECC6.0 to S/4 HANA instead of new implementation from scratch)

    A: In 1709, the only restriction I have come across is for commodity code (MARC-STAWN), it can't be maintained in the material master, the source for that is GTS.
