Dealing with error:AR191-ISO code in VAT Registration Number in Cust Master

Hi,

While creating a Customer Master, user wants to enter a VAT Registration number (in the control data tab) which begins with a country code(ISO code) that is not the country code of the company code for which the customer is created.

As a standard practice, system prevents this throwing error AR191 suggesting that ISO Code not correct in VAT Reg. number

Is there any way by which we can still allow user to enter a VAT registration number of his choice & requirement, which is not beginning with the ISO code of the country in which company code exists

See example below:

Country of Company Code XYZ :UK

Customer Created in this company code should ideally have VAT Reg. Number starting with ISO code for UK but user wants to have a different VAT Reg. Number used which is not starting with ISO Code of UK.

Is there option available in SAP by means of which we can deactivate this check?

In the configuration for u2018set country specific changeu2019, we can select options based on the length of the VAT Reg. Number and itu2019s formatting but how can we get rid of the check on ISO code?

Thanks in advance

Regards,

BM

    The length of the VAT number, which is important for this check,

    is stored in field UINLN.

    If the check comes across an invalid format, an incorrect country key, or an incorrect check digit, the exception NOT_VALID is triggered, and an error message is sent. If the check runs successfully, nothing will be drawn to the attention of the user.

    The check rules are stored in table T005 in the field PRUIN.You can deactivate the following rules.......

    1 Maximum value length, without gaps

    2 Maximum value length, numerical, without gaps

    3 Length to be kept to exactly, without gaps

    4 Length to be kept to exactly, numerical, without

    5 Maximum value length

    6 Maximum value length, numerical

    7 Length to be kept to exactly

    8 Length to be kept to exactly, numerical

    9 Check against country-specific edit format

    10 Deactivate Postal Code Check for USA

    Please do this.

    Maintain VAT Number in Control Tab Page in the field 'Tax Number 1' or 'Tax Number 2' depending on the country you want to maintain for. In the case of India, it is maintained in 'Tax Number 1'.
