Argentina Tax Reporting (RPFIGLAR_TAXREPORTING): Why do you need to fill in the Reason 0 VAT field in billing documents when an item has zero VAT rate?
When you run the Argentina Tax Reporting (RPFIGLAR_TAXREPORTING) report, the system automatically identifies the origin of the amounts and classifies them in columns – exempted, non-taxed, or export amounts. For the CITI and Electronic Duplicate options, the system also specifies the operation code for the amounts.
This process of identifying and classifying amounts and/or operation codes is the same when you run the report with accounting documents that have line items with VAT rate equal to zero.
But there’s a detail that may vary depending on the origin of the accounting document: When the accounting document comes from the SD (Sales and Distribution) module, you need to specify the reason for the 0% VAT when you create the billing document.
Here’s why: Differently of the accounting documents from MM (Materials Management) and FI (Finance) modules, where the reason for 0% VAT comes from the Specify Tax Classes (FIAR_TAXID) customizing activity and is based on the tax code used in the line item of the accounting document, the accounting documents from the SD module require a special attention.
Since the SD module uses the condition-based technique to calculate the VAT rate, the same tax code is used to create accounting documents independently if the VAT rate is higher or equal to zero. So, when a line item has VAT rate equal to zero, you need to specify the reason for it in the Reason 0 VAT field of the billing document.
