Replace of "Commercial Description to "tariff/official description from Product master on CD

Hi

We have a requirement to Replace of "Commercial Description to "Tariff/official description on Customs declaration. Currently, on Customs declaration, the commercial description is appearing from product master.

Is there any standard way to replace the "Commercial Description with "Tariff/official Description" at the time of Export declaration creation.

On Billing document we have Product/commercial description only

Kindly suggest/advice

thanks,

kiran

  • From GTS version 10.1 in product master data on GTS you have commercial description Tab where you can define the description(country specific) which will appear on commercial description on product on declaration and which will be sent to customs (to comply with legal requirement that product description need to be descriptive - as people from business said me something between tariff description and product description)

    There is also transaction /SAPSLL/PRCGD_WL where you can update commercial description in mass.

    Before version 10.1 you can achieve it only by coding. I did it in the past by cleaning population of Commercial description during declaration creation and then use Custom Declaration Default Data with access by:

    *product number

    *commodity code

    Tariff description is as Dave Willis said official description and details you can see on the webpage

    under section tariff.

    Hello Kiran,

    Check this configuration out:

    SPRO -> Global Trade Services -> Customs Management -> General Settings -> Configure Determination Procedure for Dynamic Field Labels

    Hi Kiran,

    I'm not quite sure what you're asking here. Are you referring to the Product description, or to the description of the Tariff (or Commodity) code?

    For the Product; as far as I know, the Customs Commercial Description - by Country is taken (if existing); otherwise the Customs Commercial Description - Global (if existing); otherwise the Short Text.

    For the Tariff and Commodity Codes, I think the Official Description is always proposed.

    Does that help?

    Regards,
    Dave
