Introduction: This is to understand and to learn how to add Brazil postal codes to the standard SAP system in order to pay account payables invoices which carry Taxes line items.  As every county has a different rate of tax and different counties pay different kinds of taxes, hence it becomes necessary for SAP to know from which region the business transactions originates and the region which deals or purchases the goods or services. We will delve into jurisdiction code which is a code used for determining tax rates in Brazil; it controls which tax authorities must be paid for any particular transaction.

The tax jurisdiction code is comprised of the following two parts, the tax region and municipal region, the Tax region comprises of 1 to 3 characters while the municipal region, which comprises of 4 to 16 characters.


Procedure is to add Brazil postal codes a procedure for a country version. You need to configure this as this supports Vertex tax calculation procedure and enables payment of invoices.
