    Hi Thu,

    You can use them on invoice documents to classify invoices as tax free.

    For some transactions such as tax free EU shipments to other EU countries, a descriptive text why a sale is treated as tax free needs to be specified on the invoice document.

    You can - but don't have to - use those codes & descriptions for that purpose.

    Best regards,

    Hi ThuNgo,

    Tax exempt number exists on customer and vendor card. From functionality purposes, it can different for each country (i.e. Legal entity).

    Some of the standard report and GER config in D365FO use this field as organization number and Tax registration number. For example, we use Tax exempt number in Norway for customers as organization number that needed to be used on e-invoice andTax registration number for customers on financial report (SAF-T).

    In order to get more info please check Andre's feedback on
