VAT Reg.No

Hi Gurus,

In SAP is there any control we maintain in customizing (SPRO) where we say that the VAT Reg.No should be taken from sold to party, ship to , Payer?

Please let me know if the control is there.

OR Else

Please let me know how can I achieve it.

Thanks in Advance for the reply.

    Dear SAP SD,

    Go to

    IMG - Sales and Distribution - Basic Functions - Taxes - Maintain Sales Tax Identification Number Determination

    Here against your Sales Organisation, maintain Blank, A or B.

    Below is the SAP Help text:

    If BLANK is set, then the standard prioirty ruls apply, as follows:

    1. If PY has a VAT ID no. and PY <> SP, then the tax number and tax classification are taken from PY (the SH is no longer relevant).

    The tax number is taken according to the 'tax country of destination'.

    2. If 1 does not apply:

    If SH has a VAT ID no. or SP has NO VAT ID no., then the tax number and the tax classification are taken from SH.

    3. If 2 does not apply:

    Tax number and tax classification are taken from the sold-to party.

    If 'A' is set, then the tax number and the tax classification are generally taken from the sold-to party.

    The tax number is taken according to the 'tax country of destination'.

    If 'B' is set, then the tax number and the tax classification are generally taken from the payer.

    The tax number is taken according to the 'tax country of destination'.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks,

    Hello,

    The Standard SAP sales order program will always get the VAT Reg. Number of the customer from Ship-to-party customer. The Configuration to make the field either optional or mandatory can be done at OBD2 Transaction code.

    It is upto to you as per your business requirement whether you want the VAT number to be picked from Shipto / sold to. However, the VAT is always calculated based on the Product movement from Source to Destination. Hence, it is suggestable to maintain at the Ship-to-party level.

    Please let me know if you have any specific business case to maitain it in other than shipto party level.

    Thanks,

    Ram.
