Why to Migrate to TAXINN?

-        Prerequisite for GST
-        You may run out of Tax Codes in TAXINJ
-        Complexity in creating the New Tax Codes in TAXINJ
-        Any %age Modification on the tax codes is tedious in TAXINJ
-        TAXINJ is Customizing settings but TAXINN is Master Data Maintenance

TAXINJ to TAXINN Migration Steps

TAXINN Migration Steps
              - Create TAX Procedure in FI by copying TAXINN
              - Create TAXINN tax codes
              - Assign FI Pricing Procedure to Country India
              - Create Condition Types, Access Sequence and Condition records in FI,
                 MM and SD
              - Reuse / create Account Key in FI and SD
Forms Update
               - Check Layout like Quotation, PO, Sales Invoice etc
Migration Steps
              For Purchase Side:
              - Apply SAP Notes to correct the Migration program and the required
                customization table
              - Migration all Open POs, Scheduling Agreement, and contracts to TAXINN
              For Sales Side
              - Open Sales Orders needs to be invoiced first
              - For Sales Invoice with TAXINJ procedure not released to accounting,
                carry out new pricing run
              - If a sales invoice in TAXINJ is cancelled carry out new pricing run.

High Level Things you would probably need to do

- Ensure a condition based tax procedure is used. SAP's proposed roadmap is for TAXINN
- The Govt has said that the Outgoing invoice will be validated by GST Network, so the same would probably be an interface to GST Network, something like a Golden tax in China
- The GST in India will be a dual structure tax regime, so you will need to set up the requisite condition types in your tax procedure and in your sales schema
- If you are not on TAXINN, you will need to migrate to TAXINN given as per roadmap by SAP
- Every GST No will be at state level, so configuration change will be required for the same to be set up as Business Place in SAP
- You will have to be on the required SP Level as per the details which will be provided by SAP.
- There will be some amount of overlap for VAT and GST Regime expected, so you would need to plan for a transition time for the tax applicability and how to migrate the open documents from VAT to GST. Of course, this will also depend on legal guidance on GST from the Govt and it is still under works.
