Default tax code for Germany-Accounting error


Hello Experts,

My client (Germany) wants to raise a debit memo for their customer in UK for which a tax of 16% is charged. But, my client now wants it to be changed to 0%. I have suggested to mark the deletion for the existing condition record for "country/Dest country" with the tax code A1 so that the system will automatically pick the next record maintained for exports i.e Country/dest county/Tax class-C/Tax classification-M-0% with the tax code A5.

By doing so the tax got picked rightly but the system is throwing message : "Tax statements line missing for the tax code A1" i have checked all the settings and also tried few test cases and found that the system is not allowing to enter any other code other than A1.

One Observation i have made is, after saving the billing document..other than YMWS codition type other pricing condition types (ex..YPM1) are picking the tax code A1 with G/L accounts (can see at the bottom of the condition when double clicked in the pricing conditions after saving the billing doc) but for YMWS A5 is picked without G/L accounts.???

Can any one suggest what could be the settings from which the default tax code is getting picked from ..There is no tax jurisidication nor this order is throgh EDI..But i am not sure if any Tax interfaces and linked to (please also let me know howto check if any interfaces are existing)

Sorry if elaborated more than required...but tried my best to explain.. its an high production issue now and appreciate prompt reply..
