Chinese Name (Infotype 0182) missing from Hong Kong Tax Forms IR56B
HK statutory annual tax form IR56B is generated once annually. It is optional for companies to either display / not display the chinese name of employees in the form.
The Chinese Name is maintained in Infotype 0182 under Subtype 3.
Current SAP ERP 2005 system is not pulling out the Chinese Name for display in the HK tax forms, specifically IR56B (transaction PC00_M27_CTXB) item 2 "Full Name In Chinese"
Appreciate if anyone may have any insight into how Chinese Names (in IT0182) can be configured to be displayed in HK tax forms. Points will be rewarded for this query.

Yes, it should be the responsibility of SAP to fix this problem.
But the story is that the earlier version of IR56B form is quite ugly (i am sorry to say...) and most customers choose to correct the form themselves. So at the same time, they will also fix this problem (Chinese name).
However, if it is not enforce by law, most customer would rather choose to ignore the Chinese name, and that's why still no OSS note to fix it.
