Function documentationReverse Charge Mechanism for Credit Card Transactions (CCD Only) Locate this document in the navigation structure

 

You can use this function to settle credit card transactions from credit card files in CCD format according to the reverse charge mechanism.

The reverse charge mechanism is a VAT-based rule that determines, in specific cases, that the customer is liable to pay VAT and not the provider. In the expense report, this rule can apply to domestic services provided by a company located in a foreign country, for example, when a domestic flight is offered by an airline based abroad.

Features

The file format CCD for credit card files contains the following fields for handling credit card transactions that are to be settled according to the reverse charge mechanism:

  • Reverse charge indicator

  • Reverse charge country (the country in which the product was purchased or the service was provided)

For more information about this file format, see SAP Service Marketplace at   http://service.sap.com/tm   Travel Management in Detail   Credit Card Clearing   Credit Card Clearing Data Structures (>= ERP6.0 as of 01/11)  .

The system evaluates these fields when it adds a credit card transaction from the receipt buffer to the expense report. If the reverse charge indicator and reverse charge country are selected and specified respectively in a credit card transaction, the system sets the tax code that you have set in one of the following Customizing activities, in the resulting receipt:

  • If the service was provided domestically (in the home country of the trip provision variant used), the system uses the tax code that is entered in Customizing for Travel Expenses under   Master Data   Travel Expense Types   Create Travel Expense Types for Individual Receipts   for the trip provision variant and expense type, in the VAT Code Reverse Charge field.

  • If the service was provided abroad, the system uses the tax code that is entered in Customizing for Travel Expenses under   Master Data   Advanced Treatment of Value Added Tax   Define Country-Dependent Default Values for Expense Types   for the trip provision variant, expense type, and the country, in the VAT Code Reverse Charge field.

You can set the VAT Code Reverse Charge indicator only if, in Customizing for Travel Expenses under   Master Data   Control Parameters for Travel Expenses   Define Global Settings  , the property Input Tax per Travel Expense Type is defined for the affected trip provision variants.
