Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Tax Management Work Center.
  2. Click VAT Returns under Tax Returns.
  3. Show All Tax Returns.
  4. Open the Tax Return ID XYZ.

There is no Prepayment Amount under Tax Payment Information.


  1. Go to Tax Management Work Center.
  2. Click Tax Payments.
  3. Show all Tax Payments.
  4. Open the Tax Payment which should be picked by the VAT Return.
  5. Click View All.
  6. Check the Prepayment Data under Prepayments in the bottom of the screen.

The Clearing Due Date is from a different period than the VAT Return.


Only a Tax Return which includes the same date than the Clearing Due Date of the Tax Payment will consider the prepayment.

The VAT Return cannot be from a different period than the Clearing Due Date of the Tax Payment, otherwise the prepayment will not be considered.

Hence, this is the expected system behavior.
