Restricting TDS based on validation rules for vendor invoice posting

I have two Tax Types assigned in the vendor master. If at the time of invoicing user do not delete the unwanted tax types, system posts both the amounts related to both the tax types.

User has to necessarily delete one tax type which is not required and then proceed with simulating the vendor invoice.

Can this be controlled thru validation rules ? Even if the user forgets to delete the unwanted tax type while passing vendor invoice, validation rule must throw an error asking to delete the unwanted tax types before simulating the vendor invoice.

Please help how to build such validation rule with detailed procedure.

Thanks

Ravi

    Hi,

    That is not possible in standard SAP.

    One option is that before posting, they need to manually remove the withholding tax code for the unwanted withholding tax types.

    Hi Ravi,

    I hope you have selected both withholding tax type and code at the vendor master level itself.

    It is generally advisable to select withholding tax type at vendor master level and leave the field withholding tax code to be in display mode. Hence during vendor master creation, they can only select withholding tax type and not the withholding tax code. Ensure liable to tax should be ticked against all withholding tax types.

    During invoice entry creation either in FB60 or in MIRO, they can select the withholding tax code next to the withholding tax type and simulate and post.

    In your case, you cannot delete the withholding tax types at invoice entry level. Ensure to delete the unwanted withholding tax type from your vendor master itself, I mean delete only the withholding tax codes pertaining to that unwanted withholding tax type.

    Hope this helps. Assign points if useful

      Given vendor is valid for both sections 194C and 194I and this is the reason I need to maintain all the tax types in the vendor master and therefore I cannot add and remove entries in the masters every time.

      Pls help me out.

      Thanks

    Hi,

    A single withholding tax type may contain "n" number of withholding tax codes. I didnt mean to delete the withholding tax types in vendor master. I mentioned only to delete the withholding tax code assigned to that withholding tax type in vendor master.

    In your case, you have mentioned withholding tax type and withholding tax codes for both 194I and 194C in vendor master and hence it is calculating at document creation and you cannot delete the unwanted withholding tax lines at invoice entry level.

    I hope you understand the situation now. Assign points if useful.

    Regards

    Dwarak.

      User wants to retain all the tax types and codes with liable tick mark in the vendor master but while posting vendor invoice, he wants to use only one of the tax types.

      Also, he wants the system to prompt an error message in case he forgets to detele the unwanted tax type/code while posting invoice.
