Customer master data - taxes per country


When creating a customer, in the sales area data, tab 'billing documents', taxes are defined per country. Where can I found for which countries a tax category and thus a tax classification is mandatory? Is there in SPRO a table where you define that for the customer you need a tax classification for different countries?

Thanks in advance,

Further and actually it is the countries of the plants which are assigned to the Sales Org + Distribution channel derived from the Sales area being maintained for the customer master. It works similarly for material master too. You maintain this with IMG T code OVX6- Menu Path = SPRO/IMG/Enterprise Structure/Assignment/Sales and Distribution/Assign sales organization - distribution channel - plant

So check your table TVKWZ (Org.Unit: Allowed Plants per Sales Organization) which is the table for OVX6 data. Now pick a Sales org and Dist. Channel combination. See the plans assigned to the combination and get their countries from T001W. Now if you maintain a customer for a sales are containing this combo, then taxes needed to be maintained for those countries. Of course Taxes and Licenses have to be set as required fields for the account group in OVT0.

Hope I am clear.
