Deactivate tax codes

Hi All,

This is my first document in the forum. So please go through this and provide your valuable comments on this.

We create a new tax codes with revised rates and the old tax codes no longer useful for posting. But these tax codes will display in the input help while invoice posting through MIRO,FB60,F-43,FB70 etc. Due to this the users will get confused and also might chance to select the wrong tax code for posting. To over come these type of errors SAP has provided 2 SAP Notes i.e.2074351 & 2095960.

As per note 2074351, first we have to implement the note 2095960. After done this, we have to execute the report NOTE_2095960 as mentioned in the note 2074351. The screen shot of the report execution attached here:

If you select the check box, then it no longer display while posting. For details you go through the above mentioned notes.

      Hello Mukthar,

      Thank you for useful info. Here are a couple of comments that might be useful for those who decide to implement this functionality:

      - tax codes will be invisible only for input help, but it still would be possible to use them in postings;

      - if you have active settings for a certain tax code in OBZT and you marked this tax code as inactive, it still would be visibile for postings, which means that OBZT settings override those in FTXT.

      Hi Nikki,

      The system will display the tax code for already posted documents. But when you posting a document the inactive tax codes wont appear in list.

      For MM/FI posting you have to use FV12 and for SD posting you have to use VK12.

      Yes, it is mandatory to deactivate. Otherwise it will display when you check the list. However, regarding GST tax code, there might be one tax code or multiple, depends on rates sanctioned by Govt.

      HELLO,

      THANKS FOR EXPLANATION.

      I HAVE A QUESTION. INACTIVE TAX CODE WILL NOT APPEAR IN THE LIST. But if I make a posting manually to inactive tax code the will the I/p or O/P tax amount be calculated?.
