New tax displayed when plant created in new country (Customer / Material)


Hi Gurus,

We create a plant in a new country.

Impacts are:

- New tax classification MWST to fullfil in Material master data (Sales org.1 view)

- New tax classification MWST to fullfil in Customer master data (Sales org. view)

So, this new tax MWST displays because a new departure country is available in SAP Organizational structure.

Tax data is a mandatory field on Material Master Data and Customer Master Data. Try to go in MM02 and you need to complete it to save Material or Customer.

I would like to update in mass tax for Material and Customer.

I try to use MASS or XD99 or MM17 but it is not working. Tables impacted (MLAN for Material and KNVI for Customer) don't include the new country. I suppose this is a SAP control when we use MM02 or XD02.

In my mind, it will be very complex to use LSMW (plenty of Customers and Materials, need to manage right Sales area so retreatment before...). Are there tips to fix it? Have you already reach this problem?

Many thanks.
