Exchange Rate for Vendors (MM-PUR/LIV)


Hi Experts,

This requirement is pertaining to compliance with Indonesian indirect tax regulations. It is similar to Hungary indirect tax regulations.

In Indonesia, where invoice is in foreign currency, the indirect tax base and amount have to be calculated using the exchange rate issued by the tax office (and not the usual document exchange rate). To meet this requirement, SAP has prescribed the following solution:

1. Activate plants abroad (OSS note 730466);

2. Define the official exchange rate as an exchange rate type and maintain this rate;

3. In the company code settings, allow manual entry of exchange rate.

Due to our implementation strategy where we are in a single, global instance, we could not activate the plants abroad setting. For customers, we can work around this as we can define an exchange rate type for billing. However, in AP/LIV, this is not possible.

Therefore, would like to seek advice on how to meet this requirement given the constraints we face. We are open to developing enhancements if required.

Points will be awarded to the correct answer(s).

Thank you.
