Why Is It Necessary to Add All VAT Regions to All Departments?

We have a single instance which operates in multiple countries; one of the countries operates with Value Added Tax (VAT), and another country does not have VAT as Tax.  When enabling the VAT in Retail Merchandising System (RMS) with SYSTEM_OPTIONS.DEFAULT_TAX_TYPE as SVAT, the system errors out for the items to be ranged to the VAT region even if it belongs to a country where VAT is not required.  None of the locations or suppliers are ranged which have the VAT of the other country.

How can we set up the system so that it will not error out when assigning the VAT region to every item?
