2395143 - Supplier Invoice with Individual Material not Posting Under Expense Account for Low Value Asset


You have created a supplier invoice with account assignment as individual material, however the posting is not going to expense account, although the amount is below the minimum capitalization threshold amount.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to Invoices and Credit memos view.
  3. Open the concerned supplier invoice.
  4. Jump to Document flow tab.
  5. Open the journal entry for this invoice.

You noticed that the posting capitalized the asset, even though the invoice amount is less than the minimum value set in the threshold amount for asset capitalization in business configuration.


The system works as designed. If you create the asset first and then use it on an invoice, it will get capitalized.

The capitalization threshold is only applied when the fixed asset has not been created yet, i.e. in the scenario where the IMAT (Individual material) is created as new via supplier invoice's account assignment.
