When i use MWST as header condition in Sales order.

Hi Gurus,

I have an following problem during SD billing.

I changed the MWST as header & Item condition in the condition table.

During creation of Sales order when i gave the tax at header condition and saved the document.

I also did the PGI.

I also generated the Billing Document.

When i posted the billing document to Accounting the following error pops up.

Tax code in procedure TAXGCC is invalid

Message no. FICORE704


The tax code entered is not defined in the country for this company code.

System Response


Check and, if necessary, correct the entry.

Procedure for System Administration

If it is not an input error, check and possibly change the system settings.

To do this, choose Maintain entries (F5).

1. Check whether the required tax determination procedure is assigned to the relevant country. the Procedure field is in the detail screen.

2. Create a new tax code if required.

When i gave the MWST as item condition in Sales order & did PGI & generated Billing document it gets passed on to the Accounting.

Could any one can guide me where i solve this problem.

Thanks in Advance.

    Hi Shankar

    First of all check weather the tax procedure TAXGCC is assigned to the country or not . Secondly also check weather that tax code is there in that tax procedure TAXGCC or not. If not there then create the tax code and then create the billing document then the issue should be solved

    Thanks and Regards

    • Hi Shankar

      If you want only at header level then first you should make sure that in Spro->basic functions->tax determination, maintain taxes only for customer data and not for material data. So as you need only at header level , dont assign access sequence to the tax condition type and assign a new Alt Calc Type as per your requirement. So you have to give the inputs to the technical team so that the Alt Calc Type logic will be written and assigned to the tax condition type .Then you may meet your requirement

      Thanks and Regards

    If you are sure that your taxes are not dependent of material but your customer. Kindly try this:

    As per the best practice suggested by SAP, don't make the changes to the standard condition types.

    Copy the standard header condition type and at definition choose Cond. class 'D' as per your requirement.

    While creating the condition records at VK11 make sure that you will enter the appropriate output tax code.

    Hope this will help you resolve your query.

    Thank You,
