GTS Organization Structure for Plants in foreign countries


I want to get an solution for the following task:

A German Company, represented with one Company Code in ECC, has about 40 Sales- and/or Productionplants all over the word. These plants do deliveries for german sales orders and projekts.

The related organization mapping ECC<->GTS is n:1 , means you can only set up one Foreign trade organization for at least one company code.

And you must set up Legal units for every plant you want to deliver from and set up the relation to the one FTO.

When using Export control you must set up different legal Regulation regarding to one FTO.

And this is the point, does anybody have experience with such a constellation? SAP itself is warning to do so in there trainings, but I think as long as SAP will not have a solution for plants in foreign countries have no other chance or do I have ?

Thanks for ideas in advance,

    Hello ,

    you have asked your question a long time ago , and obviously nobody answered.

    Today, i have a similar situation to the one you describe, when i have one company code in Switzerland , all plants belonging to it , but i need a foreign trade organisation in Germany to declare import / export to /from Germany and export from Switzerland .

    So i wonder if you found any solution in between .

    Best regards

    • Hi Sophie,

      Oh. I assumed you had implemented the "Plants Abroad" functionality, but it sounds like you have not. Surely you need to do that anyway, to avoid tax and other fiscal issues - if you're doing business in Germany, don't you need to account for VAT (MWST)?

      Best regards,
