In SAP, Country Version India (CIN) is an added advantage to calculate taxes in India. We have to activate CIN with customizing settings of country specific Taxes for India.


By activating CIN we can calculate taxes like

  • Cenvat
  • Withholding Tax – Tax deducted at source
  • sales tax, etc.

Excise Duty plays an important role in manufacturing industry scenarios. Excise related settings known are maintained in Country Version India configuration. Country version India integrates withSAP FI, SAP MM and SAP SD as well.

The standard system comes with two tax calculation procedures:

  • Condition Based – TAXINN
    In this activity we define a new tax code for the purpose of calculating excise duty when we enter purchasing documents.
  • Formula Based – TAXINJ

We can also define Non – Taxable transactions in Country Version India, transaction like Goods movement. Automatic tax posting is done with CIN with the help of posting key, account number and we have to distinguish tax account with tax codes. In Sales and Distribution, it calculates taxes using pricing procedure.

We can have provision for taxes and also reverse the provision. Annual return provision can configure in Country Version India. To calculate taxes we need tax certificate of each business partner.

To activate CIN menu path in SAP:

SPRO > Financial Accounting > Financial Accounting Global Settings > Tax on Sales/Purchase > Basic Settings > India > Activate Country Version India For specific Fiscal Year
