Tax determination for delivery charge



We are using SAP IS Retail wherein actual sales is being sent out to SAP from web-site using Idoc type WPUBON.

WPUBON IDOC is processed in SAP and billing document and accounting documents are created. This IDOC will carry the information of the articles that were sold and the delivery charges for dispatching the articles to customer.

In normal scenario, VAT is applicable for article as well as the delivery charge and is taken care by the standard pricing procedure by accessing MWST condition. Tax code is derived from article master. VAT is calculated based on article price and delivery charge and posted into corresponding tax GL account (VAT amount for delivery charge is calculated based on tax class of article).

We have a scenario where some articles are sold with tax exemption at website to disabled customers. Even though the article price is exempted for tax, delivery charge is taxable as per government rules.

When this sales data comes into SAP the corresponding IDOC u2013 WPUBON has a tax code (E u2013 Exempted) against this article. This overrides the tax code maintained in article master while posting the billing document (Thought article is fully taxable as per master records, no tax is calculated when billing document is posted). Till this point we have no problem. As mentioned above, we want the tax to be calculated for delivery charge and posted to the tax GL account, which is not happening as the tax code applied for the article is also applied for delivery charge by default.

Is there any way in configuration to change the tax determination only for delivery charge?

Any pointer in this would be of great help.
