Pricing Date in an Invoice

Hello ALL,

Basically I have 2 Questions.

1) On which date the Taxes are redetermined in Invoice? Whether its a Pricing date or Billing date?

I have tested a scenario for this and the taxes were not determined based on Billing date. Does this means that the taxes are redermined in billing document based on Pricing date?

2) If that is the case than how to change the Pricing date in Invoice? that field is greyed and if i create invoice lets say on 1st Nov, the pricing date is taken as the pricing date in the sales order which is 23 of Oct.

Can some body refer to me the config setting related to this?

Many thanks

PVR

    Dear Prashant

    This is the standard behaviour of SAP. For taxes first priority is given to service rendered date. For all other conditions priority is given to the pricing date.

    Service rendered date will have priority over pricing date as well as PGI date.

    Thanks

    Dear Prashant

    First of all taxes will be redetremined in billing if in VTFL price type is taken accordingly, otherwise even taxes can be copied from sales order. If taxes redetermination is set in copy control, then system checks pricing date control in V/06. If again this is also blank then first priority would be to service renedered date and second to pricing date.

    Pricing date would be taken from sales order only, You can change control of tax condition in V/06 and can take either A, C or E.

    Thanks

      Hello Shuktiz,

      Thanks for your details Explanation, and this is what I was looking for which cleared my concept.

      In Copy Control the Pricing Type is G, so the system will go for the Pricing Date in V/06. Here it is Blank i.e Standard (KOMK-PRSTD; tax and rebate KOMK-FBUDA).

      I am just not cleared how the first priority will be given to service renedered and second to Pricing date? is this a standard behaviour of SAP if the Pricing Date in V/06 is blank?

      I really appreciate the accuracy and the depth you have answered me in this issue.

      Many thanks

    Taxes will normally be determined based on your Actual GI date if it is delivery related billing and pricing date in sale order if it is order related billing. It also depends on your copy control VTFL for the field "Pricing Type". If you maintain "G", then system will automatically take care of tax calculation. That is let us assume your sale order tax percent is 4% and subsequently you changed the tax percentage to 12.50% with copy control "G", then while creating billing, system will consider 12.50% only.

    thanks

    Hi

    The tax determination always happens for Service Rendered Date(SRD) and not for the pricing date.

    In case of sales documents....the requested delivery date will be considered for tax calculations.

    In case of Billing documents....

    Order related billing: The billing date is considred as the Service Rendered Date

    Delivery related billing: the goods issue date will be copied to the service rendered date. If the goods issue date is not available, the billing date will be considered as the SRD.

    Periodic Billing: The 'To Date' of the settlement period (end date of billing period) will be copied as the SRD in billing document.

    Milestone billing: The billing date will be copied as the SRD in invoice.

    The manual entry of SRD in invoice will have priority and system allows to overwrite the defaulted value in the SRD field.

    Thanks,

    Ravi

      Hello Ravi Shankar

      In case of Debit Memo, which is created with reference to Debit Memo request which in turn is created with reference to Invoice. WHich date will be considered as service rendered date? is it the billing date of the debit memo or the billing date of the invoice?

      Regards

    I would recommend reading OSS Note 872449 - Tax determination in Sales and Distribution to understand how taxes are determined in billing document. Point F details this. Below is the content;

    f) Date of services rendered

    Tax rates are determined for the date of services rendered and NOT for the pricing date. This date is determined in the sales and distribution documents depending on the process.In this case, there is a check on whether there is a requested

    delivery date in sales documents. If there is one, there is a check on whether the requested delivery date is after the date of

    creation of the document. If this is the case, the requested delivery date is used as the date of services rendered for the SD

    tax determination. If this is not the case, the document creation date forms the basis as the date of services rendered. However, you can also manually change this automatically determined date of services rendered at header and item level in the sales document.

    It is important to note that, the actual date of services rendered of the later billing document is not yet known in the sales

    document. Therefore, the date of services rendered in the sales document and the tax determined for that may differ from the later billing document.

    In the billing document, the date of services rendered in the case of a delivery-related billing and for the existing goods issue date is copied from this goods issue date. If there is no goods issue date, the billing date forms the basis of the date of services rendered.

    In the case of the order-related billing, the billing date is used as the date of services rendered. If the billing is executed for a

    billing plan date, the To date of the settlement deadline is copied as the date of services rendered in the case of the periodic

    billing plan. In the case of the milestone billing plan, the billing date of the relevant milestone billing date is copied to

    the billing document as the date of services rendered.

    If you use transaction VF01 to manually enter the date of services rendered using the default data, this manual entry has priority. If you use the external billing interface for billing, you can enter the date of services rendered using the 'DELIVERY_DATE' import parameter. This then also has priority.

    Regards,
