Configurations

Tax Type configuration.


For country-version Ireland, withholding tax is calculated at the time of payment. There is nothing
specific to Ireland in the configuration, other than the time of tax deduction is Payment.
Tax Code configuration
The tax code should be configured as below.
1. Official Withholding Tax Key must be maintained as RCT. You do this in Customizing for
Financial Accounting (New), under Financial Accounting Global Settings (New) -> Withholding Tax
-> Extended Withholding Tax -> Basic Settings -> Define Withholding Tax Keys.
2. Percentage subjected to withholding tax should be 100%.
3. Posting Indicator: 1
4. Under Calculation, withholding tax formula must be checked.

You do these steps in Customizing for Financial Accounting (New), under Financial Accounting
Global Settings (New) -> Withholding Tax -> Extended Withholding Tax -> Calculation ->
Withholding Tax Code -> Define Withholding Tax Codes. Select the relevant entry and choose the
Details pushbutton.

Now, configure the formula as given below. You do this in Customizing for Financial Accounting
(New), under Financial Accounting Global Settings (New) -> Withholding Tax -> Extended Withholding
Tax -> Calculation -> Withholding Tax Code -> Define Formulas for Calculating Withholding Tax.
The Withholding Tax rate and the Reduced Rate have to be maintained as 35%.
(This rate is a temporary rate and the original rate that the customer receives from the ROS will be
overwritten during calculation. This rate is just maintained for the right flow of the program logic.)

Vendor Master Configuration


The withholding tax country should be maintained as IE. This is a mandatory configuration for
the calculation of withholding tax.

Payment Block Configuration


The following payment block configuration is needed for the RCT legal change. You do this in
Customizing for Financial Accounting Accounts Receivable and Accounts Payable Business
Transactions Outgoing payments Outgoing Payments Global Settings Payment Block Reasons
Define Payment Block Reasons.
Maintain the entries as given below.

Block Indicator: Z
Description: RCT Payment Block
Change in payment proposal: Checked
Manual Payments Block: Checked.

File Generation Process


The file generated from the program J_1IE_RCT_UPDATE will be stored in the folder in the application
server. The filename should be given in the selection screen with absolute path. You will be able to
see the folder where the file gets saved as follows.
Go to T-Code FILE Select the logical file path FI_ROOT select Assignment of Physical paths
to Logical Path on the Dialog Structure on left hand side.
A sample file configuration looks like below.

In this case, the filename given on the selection screen should be /tmp/contr_reg_file, where
/tmp/ is the physical folder configured in your logical path FI_ROOT.
Note that the system will generate a file consisting of 10 records for contract registration and 100
records for payment notification. So multiple files will be created on the application server. The
filenames are generated dynamically as follows:

For contract registration, if the filename given on the selection screen is file_name, the files generated
will be file_name_cr_1, file_name_cr_2, file_name_cr_3 and so on where _cr_<counter> will be added
dynamically.
Similarly for payment notification, _pn_<counter> will be added automatically to the end of the
filename. For example: file_name_pn_1, file_name_pn_2, file_name_pn_3 etc.
Also, note that for UNIX family servers, the file name will be case sensitive. So _cr and _pn added
dynamically will be lower case letters.
Once the program generated the XML file, you download it to your local disk. You use the Payment
Medium International - Load Data Medium Exchange File to Disk program to download the file as
follows:
1. On the SAP Easy Access screen, choose
Accounting Financial Accounting General
Ledger Reporting EC Sales List General Payment Medium International - Load Data
Medium Exchange File to Disk .
2. Enter the file name you specified on the selection screen of the Generic Withholding Tax
Reporting program in the Source file field.
3. Enter ** (Generic DME Format) in the File type field.
4. Enter data for the target file as required.
5. In the Character Set Conversion group box, select Standard Codepage 1100.
If there are special characters in the report, we recommend that you select Manual Entry of Code
Page and enter 4110 in the Target Code Page field.
You submit the XML files you downloaded through the interface provided by the tax authorities on
the Internet.
RECOMMENDATION
We recommend that you maintain the source path in the Payment Medium International - Load
Data Medium Exchange File to Disk program as the absolute path. For example, if the file
generated is /tmp/test_cr_1 in the application server by the J_1IE_RCT_UPDATE program, then
in the Payment Medium International - Load Data Medium Exchange File to Disk program you
need to maintain /tmp/ test_cr_1 in the Source file field.
