    Of course, you can maintain a different tax at line item level, you cannot club all those into one billing document.

    To achieve this, do the following:-

    1) Create two tax codes for 4% and 12.50% in FTXP

    2) In VK11, for your tax condition type, assign these tax codes by differentiating for material tax classification, say 1 & 2

    3) Now in sale order, by default, system will fetch a tax code for the one which you assigned in material master. Change this to the one what you want by double clicking "Billing Document" tab at item level in sale order. Go to condition tab and check how tax is flowing for both the items.

      Hi Vivek,

      tax in SD is typically determined as follows:

      (1) Tax Classification for Material

      This is to distinguish between 4% and 12.5% for a material.

      You can see the classifications in transaction OVK4 (under MWST).

      This has to be maintained in the material master record or (at the latest) on the invoice line item.

      (2) Tax codes

      Tax codes should be maintained for 4% and 12.5% in TA FTXP.

      (3) Condition record MWST has to be maintained

      (VK11 create, VK12 change)

      Typically for combination "Domestic taxes" you maintain an entry like:

      TaxClassCustomer = 1 (liable) - TaxClassMat = e.g. 1 (full) - Tax code A1 = 12.5% or TaxClassMat = 2 (half) - Tax code A2 = 4%

      (4) Invoice transfer to FI

      When the invoice with the various line items/tax codes is transferred to FI, the FI document will have two line items - one for each tax code.

      Hope this helps.
