How to add a recycling fee on invoices?

Hi Community,

In the Czech Republic, there is a legal obligation for companies, to state and post "recycling fees" on each invoice. This recycling fee needs to be calculated on electronic hardware placed on the market in the Czech republic. The fees itself are defined by an authorized Czech company. The fee depends on the electronic material, but is always a pre-defined percentage. It needs to be considered during billing and later on also printed on the invoice.

Does SAP already provide a solution for that legal requirement? I checked announcements of legal changes but couldn't find something appropriate. If not, is there already a field/ condition type we can use/ misuse instead? Would that mean that we need to create a condition type? Happy to get your view and feedback, most likely you have the same requirement if you issue invoices from a CZ entity to CZ customer.

We use the S4HC solution.

Thanks

Raphael

Hi Community,

We have solved it: we used Material Group 1 field in material master data to made our different material categories available. We created a new condition type and access sequences plus pricing procedure and defined recycling fees for the materials and condition types.

You can create SAP message if there any solution already on posting "recycling fees" as legal obligation for country Czech Republic.

As recycling fees differs material to material on invoice posting and this recycling fees not effect at PO and GR levels, and recycling fees not related to any tax component/s alternate option to be considered!

Having recycling fees during invoice posting, a default condition type value may helpful but those need to based on material, vendor and country else may be after invoice posting recycling fees calculates on the same with different custom transaction to show as vendor invoice with a development

Hello Raphael,

You can have a additional Tax Condition in your Pricing Procedure. This new Tax Condition will also be assigned to Country CZ.

Based on different Materials, you can maintained Tax Indicators in Material Master which will help determine correct Rate from Condition Records.

Not sure whether SAP has provided any standard condition type specific to your country but you can make use of any condition type which has condition class as A, by copying that and if needed, you can also change the calculation type

Thanks Lakshmipathi!

Different electronic products have different rates, hence based on the material a different rate is to be applied (for example for printers .5%, chargers 1.2%, etc.).

Is that something which is viable with condition types? Basically, that would mean that I need to assign condition types based on combination Material and Customer location. Shouldn't that be something which will be maintained in material master?
