EU tax system - France/Germany


Scenario: Customer belongs to DE (Germany), Customer will order to 1000 company code (Germany). The company code DE will create sales order with one plant, which is belongs to France company code. It is just like a intercompany third party billing process.

After that France co.code will send the PO (NB) to CZ vendor. CZ vendor will delivery the goods directly to custome (DE).

CZ vendor will submit the bills to France com.code.

1. Then France company code will dot the intercompany Billing (IV) to DE (Germany) company code. Here the system is picking the tax code from France. As per the client requirement it should pick up from Country (DE) - Is it poosible?

If it is possible, what are the settings we require to do in SD and FI.

2. Then Country DE com.code will create the normal billing doc. to end customer. Here the system picking DE country tax code - It is ok. It's right.

Can any body help me how to solve the first point.

I think it is FI configuration settings in foreign trade

With regards

    Hello Lakki,

    I am currently out touch with plants abroad functionality, which I configured for UK based company couple of years ago. However, with a quick look at your question, I thought this might be (just make sure this is what you are looking for) the part of plant abroad functionality.

    Go through the excellent stuff at:

    And discuss with SD & FI Consultant before arriving at final conclusion.

    Hi lakky,

    Four EU countries, the plants abroad functionality is very useful in taxation point of view. But this functionality should have been initiated ab initio. Otherwise, if this is activated now, this will impact MM and SD functionalities in regard to tax codes. Configuring this is almost like a new implementation in regard to taxation. Analyse this with MM and SD consultants before activating this functionality.
