Information in this document applies to any platform.


This will provide an overview of alternate tax rate/area definitions and setup used.

The goal of this functionality is to provide an alternate means of assigning the tax rate/area to transactions. Without this functionality, the system provides a default value for the tax rate/area from the customer master, supplier master, or the business unit master records. An example of when this does not meet requirements is in the European Union (EU). EU customers registered for VAT in multiple EU countries require different tax rates based upon the ship-to and ship-from countries of their transactions. To provide for the different tax rates, multiple tax rate/areas are needed and an alternative means of assigning these tax rate/areas must be provided.


All users of Sales Order Management, Procurement Management, Service and Warranty Management (SWM) and Case Management will benefit from the information in this document.
