2694320 - VAT Within Customer Invoice Shows Wrong VAT Base Amount


You are creating a Manual Invoice in the system and you could see that the Taxes for the item are not using the correct Base Amount.

There are two rows for taxes, one IEPS and the other VAT (Value Added Tax) and the line for IEPS is pulling the Net Amount as Base Amount, as expected. But the VAT row is summing the Net Amount and IEPS Tax Amount to compose VAT Tax Base Amount which is not correct, both rows should pull Net Amount as Tax Base.

Reproducing the Issue

After you create the Manual Invoice

  1. Go to Customer Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to Invoice Documents view.
  3. Search the document in question.
  4. Click View All button.
  5. Go to Items tab and Taxes subtab.

You can see that the amounts for the Tax Base is not what was expected.


The Tax Code 505 - Sale With IEPS - Goods is chosen for this invoice, which means the system will take this calculation for the VAT Tax Base Amount. Hence, this is expected from the system. The IEPS tax is composed of these two tax line items that are calculated this manner.


This is system behavior for this Tax Code.
