This article applies to Microsoft Dynamics NAV for all countries and all language locales.

Symptoms

Assume that you click Sell-to/Buy-from No. in the Bill-to/Sell-to VAT Calc. list in the General Ledger Setup dialog box in Microsoft Dynamics 2009. When you post a sales order in which the Sell-to customer is from European Union (EU) and the Bill-to customer is a NATIONAL customer, the information about the value-added tax (VAT) entry that is relevant for the VAT reporting, especially the VAT Vies reporting, is not filled consistently. The information about the VAT Country Code field and the information about the VAT Registration No. field are always from the Bill-to customer.
This problem occurs in the following products:

  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 R2

  • Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Service Pack 1 (SP1)
