Different departure countries in proforma vs fiscal invoice

Hello.

I have the following scenario:

- 2 companies each with its own sales organizations, company code and country are part of the same big corporation and are hosted on the same SAP server. I will name them A and B: A has also a plant in B's country.

- B requests a stock transfer order and A delivers the merchandise from from its plant located in B's country.

- 2 invoices are issued: F8 type invoice and F2 invoice both referencing the same delivery document but there are differences between them:
+ F8: for each material line in the invoice, Item Detail tab, Accounting data group, field Country (VPRP-ALAND) -> shows delivering plant country, identical with the recipient's(Sales order data group, field DestCtryOrder (VBRP-LLAND_AUFT)); because of that the tax code is determined as if there is a domestic transaction(VPRP-ALAND = VBRP-LLAND_AUFT)

+ F2: or each material line in the invoice, Item Detail tab, Accounting data group, field Country (VPRP-ALAND) -> shows A's country, identical with the vendor's; because of that the tax code is determined as export transaction(VPRP-ALAND=/=VBRP-LLAND_AUFT).

Has anybody seen that in the past? Can anybody explain this difference?

Than you in advance

Ideally, there should not be any difference b/w F8 and F2.
As former is a Pro-Forma invoice and later is a commercial invoice.
And in a normal transaction value can't be different in both.
The source of determination of values is same for both, i.e., referenced the preceding delivery doc and the sales order.

And in general, the tax values are determined based on

  • Departure Country of Delivering Plant (ALAND)
  • Destination Country of Ship-to Party (LAND1)

Can you check and confirm, your copying control(VTFL) for LF -> F8 and LF -> F2, what is "Determ.export data"?

Moreover, check whether the values in the section "Taxes" of Header Data F8 and F2 are same?
If no, then can you please share the screenshots?

Thanks,
JP

As other JP :) correctly noted, this could be copy control configuration (assuming here there was no actual data change between the two documents were created and they both have the same source document; if not - that's another "point of failure").

In addition to that, it could be some code in a user exit. (I believe ANST transaction can find user exits / enhancements too, if not ask an ABAPer locally.)

If all else fails, contact SAP Support. With all things equal, there should not be such differences.
