Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Payables Work Center.
  2. Under Suppliers View select Suppliers Accounts Sub-view.
  3. Open the Account ID AAA.
  4. Click New Charge/Credit button.
  5. Under General Information choose a Charge/Credit.
  6. Under Account Assignment insert a G/L Account and the HSN/SAC code for India
  7. Error message is displayed.
  • 'Service tax accounting code <XXXX> does not exist'


This issue occurs because the HSN/SAC Code for India is being inserted after the G/L Account.


Currently we have a sequence which need to be followed when creating a Charge/Credit. The HSN/SAC Code for India, must be inserted before the G/L Account.

So, the sequence for create a New Charge/Credit is:

  1. Insert HSN Code, and then the error message is displayed.
  2. Insert the G/L Account and press 'Enter' button in the keyboard.
  3. The error message disappears.

If this sequence is followed while filling the details, the HSN Code error will not occur.
