Tax Information

Every single country and even state has its own tax laws. They are so different that when people operate their online business they may contact their local authority on tax to ensure they are calculating tax properly for their web store. Therefore, taxes are configured in SAP for each country (Taxes: Tax Categories by Country OVK1).

While managing customer or material master records in SAP, you can determine which are tax liable and which are tax exempted.

One of the common tax scenarios is whether to show prices to the customers including sales tax or excluding.

In the customer master data using the Sales/ checkbox under the Control Data tab you can determine whether a customer should see product prices in the web store including or excluding sales tax.

More tax settings can be set up in the sales area data of the customer, under the Billing Documents tab. There you can specify tax liability of the customer based on the customer's country to automatically determine country-specific taxes.

It is also possible to setup Tax data under the Sales org. 1 tab in the material master data. There you can specify whether or not taxes should apply to the item upon sale.

Different condition types can be used in SAP for tax calculations. You can also customize and use those condition types which are the most suitable for managing your business. For example, the MWST condition type is used for Output tax configuration. Using this condition type you can configure domestic, export and also departure/destination country taxes.

The condition type which should be used for tax calculations in the Sana web store should be set up in the /SANAECOM/: Pricing Calculations Sana admin table which can be accessed by transaction /n/sanaecom/a_tables.
