**Summary:**

This contribution summarizes an implicit constitutive solution scheme of the elastoplastic problem containing the Mohr-Coulomb yield criterion, a nonassociative flow rule, and a nonlinear isotropic hardening. The presented scheme builds upon the subdifferential formulation of the flow rule leading to several improvements. Mainly, it is possible to detect a position of the unknown stress tensor on the Mohr-Coulomb pyramid without blind guesswork. Further, a simplified construction of the consistent tangent operator is introduced. The presented results are important for an efficient solution of incremental boundary value elastoplastic problems.
