VAT changes Switzerland

Hi

I'm working with SAP by Design.

There will be a change on Swiss VAT in Jan 18. I'm able to create new tax codes and tax rate. Now I can either set the system to 8% or 7.7% but definitly need to have both overlapping for a certain time. How can I create a Connection between the tax codes and tax rate or what is your solution?

Please help.

Thanks S.

    • The new Tax Rate Schedules for Switzerland can be added as follows:

      1. Go to the Business Configuration work center.
      2. Go to the Overview view.
      3. Search and select the activity Tax on Goods and Services.
      4. Click on the Change Immediately button.
      5. Click on the Define Tax Rate Schedules link.
      6. Click on the Add Row button and add country Switzerland.

      You need to add two rows here:

      • One for Tax Rate Type 1 Standard Tax with validity from 01.01.2018 and Rate in % as 7.7%.
      • Another row for Tax Rate 3 Special with validity from 01.01.2018 and Rate in % as 3.7%.
      • For Tax Rate Type 2 Reduced, no changes are required.

        7.Click Save.

      On successfully saving the changes, all documents with Tax due date after 01.01.2018 shall be having the new tax rates.

      Regards,

      Leticia.
