For businesses using the SAP system, it's essential to understand how to use the RFWT0010 program, especially when it comes to managing withholding tax issues.

Under circumstances where your company code has activated the Extended withholding tax (indicated by the T001-WT_NEWWT field being set) and there are an open vendor or customer items in your system, you'll find this program tool invaluable.

Legal changes can result in variations in the "relevant withholding tax types." These legal fluctuations can trigger an error message during the F110 transaction, stating 'Withholding tax information is missing from line items.' Despite this potential hiccup, the RFWT0010 program proves its worth in multiple scenarios.

Understanding how to navigate and execute this program despite these potential bumps will help you efficiently manage your SAP operations.

The following text describes potential situations for this scenario and recommended execution tactics:

  1. Creation of a New Code

To be automatically utilized in accounting transactions, it's essential to register these new codes in the Master Data of suppliers. Post the addition of this new code, all transaction postings will commence using the current configuration and code.

  • Suggestions for Executing Program RFWT0010:

Our recommendation is to create an Enhancement/Exit at the time the tax alteration is saved, leveraging the Function Module JOB_OPEN to initiate the job execution as program RFWT0010.

The objective is to initiate the job only if there's an alteration in the Withholding Taxes tab for the particular Business Partner. This shortens execution time to mere seconds.

It's crucial to validate this resolution with the business team and thoroughly test it. Be sure to utilize relevant SEO keywords like 'Master Data of suppliers,' 'program RFWT0010,' and 'Business Partner' to boost visibility.

  1. Changes to Withholding Tax Information for Company Code

This situation pertains to configuration modifications that trigger the activation or deactivation of the company as a Withholding Tax subject (view V_T001WT).

  • Suggestions for Executing Program RFWT0010:

Given that this is a unique, infrequent change, we recommend embedding the execution of program RFWT0010 into the request transport activity (Change Management).

The program would be implemented instantly post the change in transportation into the environment, assuring necessary updates about withholding tax.

3. Adjustment of the Existing Tax Code

>>>As a rule, altering a running percent rate isn’t the optimal solution! It is always a wiser route to create a new w/tax code with the new percent rate<<<

Say an adjustment is made to the configurations of an existing withheld tax type/code to the rate, for instance:

  • SS tax code - 12% (at the time of posting the open item)
  • SS tax code - 24% (at the time of open item payment)

Precondition: W/tax is relevant during the time of payment.

To put it another way, if the w/tax percent range is altered in the w/tax code amid the posting and payment of the invoice, this alteration will be addressed appropriately in the payment.

Info: When posting invoices, only the w/tax base sum is computed and saved in the table WITH_ITEM.

The percent rate itself is considered during the payment procedure. The calculated payment sum is stored after the payment in with_item.

  • Suggestions for Executing Program RFWT0010:
    For this situation, executing program RFWT0010 is not required.
