2657602 - Incorrect Number Range Allocated to Self-Invoice for an Unregistered Vendor (GST India)


You have procured goods and services from an unregistered vendor and saved / posted an Evaluated Receipt Settlements (ERS) invoice. However system did not allocate the number range defined as per the document numbering rule



Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Supplier Invoicing work center
  2. Go to the Common Tasks and select New ERS Invoice
  3. Enter the Company ID that belongs to India
  4. Enter Supplier, Invoice Date and the External Document ID, and make sure that this ID is unique as it will help you locate the invoice
  5. Navigate to Items tab and enter the Product ID
  6. Enter the Tax code that is associated with GST RCM tax codes
  7. Save or Post the Evaluated Receipt Settlements (ERS) invoice


You have activated the document numbering format for Self-Invoices on specific date. (For Example - 01.06.2018) However you have entered the posting date of self-invoice to back dates where there was no rule maintained. (For example - 04.04.2018) Since there was no rule activated during the backdates, system will not allocate the new number range when you save or post the invoice and hence the old number range will be defaulted. This is an expected behavior


You need to enter the posting date of ERS invoice after the activation of self-invoice configuration. Later system will allocate the correct number range in the Evaluated Receipt Settlements (ERS) invoice
