The Government of India is planning to roll out GST from 1st of July, 2017 as per the latest update.

Based on the draft Model GST law SAP has started releasing Notes for DDIC changes, Screen Changes, Master Data and transaction data.

The proposed GST India Development roadmap is available in the GST JAM page –

To get access to this SAP Jam group, please send a request to Do not request via the comment function in this blog and do not publish any private information (like email addresses and S-User information).

The note contains information based on the Model GST law currently available in public domain. The information offered is subject to change without prior notice due to factors outside/beyond the control of SAP. This version of the note contains a soft switch which customers need to modify in order to test in their systems (refer to SAP Note 2417506 for more details). Since the new rules are not yet out as notifications, SAP recommends that you take legal opinion, along with the documentation of the soft switch provided, before implementing these notes in your productive environment. SAP also suggests that you perform an assessment on the risks involved before implementing this note.

Once the final GST law and rules are available, SAP will release further corrections (if applicable) via new notes.

    Hi Brinda,

    This is regarding the HSN/SAC code field added in tcodes FB60/FB70/FB65/FB75 item level . This currently is added only in BSEG structure.  But BSEG is not usually recommended to be used in reporting.

    We were hoping to see these fields also in BSIS/BSAS/BSIK/BSAK/BSID and BSAD from a reporting perspective. We will have to write outbound reports for GSTN interface and selecting from BSEG is not recommended.  What are your thoughts?




  2. Ketan Kothari

    Hello Everyone,

    Does any body have an idea, if SAP has already released the new Input Utilisation Program for GST. I could not find it in any note. Thanks

  3. Asish Saha

    Hi Brinda


    We have implemented most of the relevant notes related to Vendor Invoice posting. We have an issue while posting using MIRO transaction. The HSN/SAC code is not getting updated in BSEG table. Can you suggest the remedial action for this. Please note that the condition records are getting picked up for an HSN code in Purchase Order.

    For a normal FI Invoice posting using FB** transactions, the HSN code is getting updated.


    With Regards

    Asish Saha

    Hi Brinda,

    Now that the final GST ruling is expected by March end , do  we have some tentative dates on when SAP final patches will be available?

    Will they be more consolidates , taking care of all the corrective notes as part of the main note itself?



  5. Capgemini Nilgiris

    Hi Brinda,

    IS there any plan that SAP will release the final notes for Development soon? As we are inching close to July 1st , we will need at least 3 – 4 week in dev followed by 3 – 4 weeks in UAT.

    Even a finalized version 1 would be useful.

    As per the instruction in the current notes , we are only applying n sandbox system.



  8. Ravi Tammineni

    Hi Brinda,

    Is there any SAP note available so far on handling export/SEZ/Deemed Exports Sales in GST regime . My understanding is that ARE1/ARE3 forms still continue to be there for export scenarios post GST and is that correct?




  9. Ravi Sharma

    Hi Brinda,

    Thanks for the informative blog it is really helpful in understanding the GST solution.

    We are also updating the GST solution but are stuck up post note 2376723 implementation.

    Although we have updated the variable  EX_GST_RELE as “X” but still the changes are not updated for screen.

    Request you to kindly advice.






  10. Support Team


    This is in reference to the mandatory service master requirement post GST. We have overseas locations also where GST is not impacting. Can we have the functionality of service PR/PO with service master for India location and without service master for overseas locations in the same client post GST.

    Hello Brinda.  I have been checking several sources, including asking on the Jam page, but have not found an answer yet.  Is there any update regarding when the official “production-ready” OSS Notes will be released?  The “Development Roadmap” appears to have last been updated on April 6, and still gives no clear indication.  And OSS Note 2421394 still indicates everything is in draft. Thank you for any additional information you may have at this time.

  15. Manu Skariah

    Hi Experts,

    Request clarifications for the below points.
    What is the importance of existing Business place in the system, which is being used for WHT(With holding tax)?
    And the same(Business Place) is been assigned to the all the plants of a Company code.

    As per the GST, we have to create the Business Place and assign to Plants..?

    as said above, the WHT related Business place is already assigned to the plants…

    How the new Business place is going to assign to the existing plants…?

    somewhere I read that the new plants has to be created for the existing plants and assign the GST Business places(which we have created) to them.

    If that is the case, how the system would behave wrt WHT and GST..?

      As the GST law is in Draft status-we need to wait.

      Have you tried a testing scenario in your system on your own queries-So can get better clarity.

      Note: Please raise a new discussion thread on your queries-So all members can participate.

      This was completely a blog by Brinda for GST Knowledge update.




  16. Sachin Padala

    Hi Experts,


    Please, anybody checked for Vendor down payment process for GST?

    We tested with ME2DP transaction with reference to PO, but the Tax rate is picking from Tax classification key combination percentage, not from PO Tax code key combination table (Access sequence tables) rate.

    And Place of Supply, HSN/SAC, GST Partner fields are not updating in BSEG table.


    Tax GL accounts also not determining from business place wise maintained table(J_1IT030K_V), It is coming from OB40 only.




  17. Issac Varghese

    Hi Brinda,
