Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Payment Management work center, and select the Payment Allocations view.
  2. Show all In Preparation allocations, and select the one in question.
  3. Edit the Payment Allocation and navigate to Customer/Supplier tab.
  4. Select the Tax Authority XYZ from the value help.


Company Tax Authority is registered in country/region CH - Switzerland, then the payments to tax authorities should be only in CHF currency and no other currency is allowed. In this case the payment allocation is made in USD, and if you simply try to change the currency in the payment allocation to CHF, then that is not allowed as it picks up the currency given in the corresponding Bank Statement.


So the only way forward is to accept the Payment from Bank in CHF currency which is the same the currency of the Tax Authority XYZ. For this the statement needs to be reversed and created again. If you do not want to reverse the Bank Statement then you may allocate this payment to some other Customer/Supplier or you can select Tax Authority which is registered in US then system will be able to accept the payment in the payment allocation made from USD currency.
