Posting invoices in F-43 where items have different VAT codes

Hi,

I am not sure whether I am in the correct forum so just boot me into the correct one if I guessed incorrectly.

I have to start by saying I have almost no FI knowledge and it seems no-one in the business has enough FI applications knowledge. I am thus flying blind.

So while the company I am used to working in has MM integration which makes things a lot easier, they set up a sister company where they only want FI.

The sister company is located in UK and I set up tax codes for them

0%, 17.5% and the other 0%.

Our finance team advised them to use f-43 to enter the invoices, attach the vat code and away they go.

The problem comes when some items on the actual invoice has 17.5% and some have 0%. This means the vat % on the total varies.

They are requesting the ability to override the % or the vat value, but still have the invoice recorded with a VAT code so that they can run VAT reports.

I am sure that there must be SAP standard ways to solve this, but I don't know yet where to look and I don't have enough time to really start from scratch.

Any help will be useful.

    Hi Charl,

    What ever you are asking is against the procedure.... System has to calculate the VAT amount based on the stated percentage....

    So you can not chagne the VAT % or VAT value while posting the transaction.... But what you can do is to change the Tax base amount....

    When you are posting the invoice, system automatically takes the invoice value as bais for tax calculation, but one can change the Tax base value. So if user changed that value, system calculates the VAT amout on the modified base....

    In this way you can change the VAT amount....

    Thanks & Regards

    I thought this might be the case, but since they asked I had to make sure.

    Thanks
