Tax Determination Clarification

114 Views

Hello everybody

We have configured Tax Determination in SD in our system & I need some clarifications.

Condition Types configured:

1) ABCD - Sales Tax

2) LMNO - Shipping Tax

They appear in the same Order in the Tax Determination Rules for country US.

As mentioned above, ABCD calculates tax for the total (Base price - Discount) in the Order where as LMNO does it for the Shipping & Handling charge.

Now the access seq for them are:

1) ABCD - ALAND / REGIO / VKORG / VTWEG / SPART / TAXK1 / TAXM1

2) LMNO - ALAND / REGIO / VKORG / VTWEG / SPART / TAXK1

Now the Customers & materials are tied to both these condition types with the following value options:

ABCD : 0 = Sales tax exempt & 1 = liable

LMNO: 0 = Shipping tax exempt & 1 = liable

Now we have the following requirement::

1) In our Business, Sales Tax ABCD should be determined based on the parameter values coming from the Sold-to-Party & S&H tax LMNO should be determined using Ship-To-Party parameters.

What I mean here is for ABCD the fields REGIO = state/region of the SP & TAXK1 should be the value of the tax indicator for ABCD in the Sol to Party.

Similarly for LMNO, REGIO = state/region of SH & TAXK1 = value of tax indicator for LMNO in the SH

Obeservations:

1) First concern is the TAXK1 is pointing to tax classification value for ABCD in the Customer.

So my question would be that to consider the Tax Classification value for LMNO in the Customer, should TAXK2 be used as a field in the access of LMNO ?

2) Secondly the REGIO/TAXK1 fields are always the picked up from the Ship to party.

So when SP=SH, it works fine.

But when SP is different than the SH, ABCD is using SH's REGIO for determination.

Is there a field to point to SP's REGIO ?

Also I want to know if its a universal rule that if the SP is from New Jersey & SH is from California, the sale is considered to be done in CA and hence SAP is by default pointing to the SH ?

The reason I ask is in our business they consider that in the above case the Sales Tax shld goto NJ & the Shipping tax should go to CA. Just trying to understand if the Business process is fundamentally incorrect.

Can someone share their experience on this & kindly suggest some input for the mentioned queries.

Thanks

Vin
