How to create Tax number category of Business Partner?

Hi SAP Friends,

I am  D Durga Prasad, SAP FICO consultant.I wanted to share a small tip which might be helpful.

This is my first activity in SAP Community blog posting

If there is a requirement adding more tax number category’s (i.e EXIM code (Export and Import Code in India) in business partner- Customer master data, you can follow these steps.

Step 1. Go to T.code SM30

Step 2. Type table name as “V_TFKTAXNUMTYPE” and click on maintain

Step 3. Click on  new entries, enter the tax category code and text & click on save.

Note: You should follow 2 digit country code (As per ISO) and sequence number

Step 4. Go to IMG Screen->Cross application components->SAP Business Partner->Basic Setting->Tax Numbers->Maintain Tax Numbers Categories

Enter your category code & select On if required duplicate check and click on save

Instead of Step 4 you can do, In SM30 enter the table name as V_TFKTAXNUMTYPEC and maintain tax category as above.


Step 5. Go to Business Partner (BP) in general role, click on Identification Tab, under tax numbers enter the category which you have created and click on save.

See here it is showing tax category which was crated by us. i.e ZIN1. You can create more tax categorise based on your requirement. You need to take more care about the tax category code otherwise it will be duplicated. Follow the country code as per ISO and serial number.

      Hi Durga,


      I am getting the error "

      Tax number category AX0 does not exist

      Message no. FKBPTAX003"

      When transferring from MDG system, error is getting in the target system. But in the T-code BP the TAX code AX0 is not at all maintained, in the Billing tab. Could you please tell me why this error im getting.

      What if there is no tax id for the vendor (e.g., govt vendor) but the tax field is mandatory?


      Can you utilize this functionality?
