(CHE) Company identification numbers for tax exemption [AX 2012]

Updated: April 23, 2014

Applies To: Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2

In Switzerland, a legal entity must use the company identification number (UID) instead of the six digit value-added tax (VAT) number, which is the Mehrwertsteuer (MWST) number. You can use the UID to print invoices and for tax reporting purposes. To validate the UID format for a legal entity, in Microsoft Dynamics AX, you must first set up the UID format as a tax registration type, and then assign UID as the legislative type to manage tax registration numbers for legal entities in each country. You can then specify the UID when you create addresses for customer or vendor legal entities, and specify the tax registration information.

You can use the Format field in the Tax registration types form to specify the format for the UID for your legal entity. For more information, see Set up a tax registration type.

You can specify the alphanumeric format for the UID by using the country identification code, a hyphen, and a nine digit number that is grouped into three sets of three digits that are separated by periods. The last number represents the check digit of the UID. The UID number can also be followed by a code that indicates the business type. An example of an UID format is CHE-123.456.789 HR, where HR is the business type that is assigned to the legal entity.

To set UID as the legislative type for your legal entity, you can perform these steps:

  1. In the Legislative tax registration types form, in the Legislative type field, select UID.

  2. In the Registration type field, specify a tax registration type for the legal entity.

To add a tax registration type for a customer or a vendor, you can perform these steps:

  1. Click Accounts receivable > Common > Customers > All customers.

    –or–

    Click Accounts payable > Common > Vendors > All vendors.

  2. Create or select a customer or a vendor. For more information, see Customers (form) or Vendors (form).

  3. In the Action Pane, on the Customer FastTab, click Registration > Taxes.

    –or–

    In the Action Pane, on the Vendor FastTab, click Registration > Taxes.

  4. In the Manage addresses form, create a record for the customer or the vendor.

  5. In the Tax registration FastTab, click Add to create a record.

  6. In the Registration type field, enter the tax registration type for the customer or the vendor.

To set up the parameter that can validate the UID format, you can follow these steps:

  1. Click General ledger > Setup > Sales tax > External > Country/region parameters.

  2. Create a record for the legal entity. For more information, see Country/region parameters (form).

  3. Select the Check tax exempt number check box to validate the tax exempt number based on the UID format for a customer or a vendor.
