When a country is assigned to more than one tax community:

  • Each tax community must be assigned a priority.

The system uses these priorities to determine which tax community - and its laws and regulations - is used when the countries involved in a business transaction belong to more than one community.

  • The priorities must be sequentially numbered.


  • Default Setting

    Blank or "0".

  • When a country is assigned to one tax community, the system treats this tax community with the highest priority.
  • Highest Priority
  • Blank or "0".
  • Lower Priorities
  • Sequential numbers starting with 1.


Table entries for countries assigned to more than one tax community:

Country     Community     Priority

DE     EU

DE     NATO     1

DE     UNICEF     2

DK     EU

DK     NATO     1

In this example, the tax community EU would be used for transactions between Denmark and Germany.
