      Hi Kim Mathaess,

      thanks a lot for the information! Unfortunately it is not working in my system and I am not able to change the tax reporting date. Are there any additional settings I have to adjust in order to change the tax reporting date?

      BKPF-VATDATE (Tax Reporting Date) and BSEG-VALUT (Value Date) will NOT be made changeable. From a business and audit perspective, changing date dimensions in posted documents, such as the Value Date (BSEG-VALUT) or changing Tax Reporting Date (BKPF-VATDATE) in the context of actual taxation does not correspond to our understanding of sound accounting practice. Therefore it is not planned to make such fields modifiable.
