Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Supplier Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to the Invoices and Credit Memos subview.
  3. Find the Supplier Invoice ABC and open it.
  4. Click on View All.
  5. Open the Document Flow tab.
  6. Show the Extended View.
  7. Open the Clearing XYZ (XYZ stands for the Clearing ID) with a Business Task.
    Note: 'Withholding tax code of down payment differs from those of other items' error message is received.


There is a Withholding Tax amount maintained in the Down Payment Request but not in the Supplier Invoice ABC, because of this, clearing of the Supplier Invoice ABC with the related Down Payment is not allowed.


As the Down Payment is already on Paid status, you can create a new Supplier Invoice by canceling the existing one, Supplier Invoice ABC, and entering the values according the Down Payment Request.
Now that the Withholding Tax amount is maintained in the Supplier Invoice and Down Payment Request, the clearing of the new Supplier Invoice is possible.
