Usage and determination of Tax destination country (VBAK-STCEG_L)

Hello,

Could someone please enlighten me about the usage and determination of Tax destination country (VBAK-STCEG_L) in sales orders (Billing Document Tab)?

Please note that when a sales order is created, the field Tax destination country (VBAK-STCEG_L) does not appear to be automatically populated and is always empty unless a value is manually entered.

However, according to the SAP Note 872449, it seems that the tax destination country is automatically determined from the country of the ship-to-party. In that regard, does this imply that the field Tax destination country (VBAK-STCEG_L) in sales order should have an initial value?

    As indicated by Shiva, this is most used in EU related countries. As you might be aware that Ship-to is an essential partner type for std determination method of tax in SAP SD.

    If in case your destination country for Sold-to and ship-to is different. In that case, you have to maintain the destination country manually. If your business desire to control that automatically. Then you can have that enhanced using user exit.

    My organization, we have 2 rules enhanced for Billing using exits. (As billing is the actual/final base for Taxation and sales order is just indicative.) If invoice contains a service material and deliverable goods, the sales tax origin(STCEG_H) would derive from sold to party and ship to party, respectively.

    FYI, Sales tax origin(STCEG_H) controls Country sls.tax no(STCEG_L) determination.

    • A - Ship-to party
    • B - Payer CSold-to party
    • D - Payer (KNAS segment)
    • E - Manually entered or changed
    • F - Entered manually in order
    • G - Own VATreg. no. in dest. country
    • H - Payer for tax receiving country from order
    • I - Sold-to party for tax receiving country from order
    • J - Sold-o party (segment KNAS)

      You can also refer SAP Note 1406106 - EU tax package 2010 (1) for further clarity.

    Thanks, JP
