Wrong VAT Registration No. in invoice to customer

Dear experts,

We have a company in country CZ that sells goods to customers not only in CZ but also in SK.

Now when an invoice goes to a customer in SK the "VAT registration number" of "company CZ" is on there which is incorrect.

On the invoice there should be the "VAT registration number" of SK.

I saw that in OBY6 one is able to maintain the "VAT Registration number" on Company Code level:

I found 2 company codes, one for CZ and one for SK. Both company codes are maintained, also the "VAT Reg. number".

So how come I do not have the SK "VAT Reg. number" on invoices to SK customers?

Where does SAP decide which VAT Registration number to put on the customer's invoice?

Does it start when a Sales Order comes in?

Thank you for your help with this,

Peter

    Can you please reconfirm your statement that you want VAT registration number of buyer in SK ??  From your comments, it seems, you were expecting the system to pick delivering plant's VAT number.

    If you want the system to pick the VAT registration number from seller in CZ, system will consider whatever you maintained in the delivering plant.  On the other hand, if you want the system to pick from buyer in SK, then check what you have maintained in the respective customer master.

    • Hello Ivano,

      Finally it was now decided to not customize anything but to set the necessary VAT number in the mapping on PI depending on the country of the sold-to-party. Apparently for country SK the company code is not in use and any customization would use the company code as a basis.

      Thank you everyone for your help,

      Peter
