2704541 - Supplier Invoice Provision Date is not correct


Under Project Expense View the Supplier Invoice Provision Date is not same as the Supplier Invoice Posting Date

Reproducing the Issue

  • Go to Project Management work center
  • Choose the Time and Expenses view
  • All items and search for the project
  • Filter the Supplier Invoice here you can see the Provision Date for the Invoice is XX.YY. ZZZZ which is not same as the supplier invoice posting date.


The provision date of the expenses from the supplier invoice for the project is taken from the Service Period interval ("to"-date) of the invoice item.

In this case, the service period for the two items is the service period from/to date of the supplier invoice is communicated from the customer as delivery period start and end date.

In this case, there is no provision date maintained at the item level pricing terms, so the customer invoice date is taken as the service start date.

Then a duration is set and a period is derived. A unit of one day is added to the invoice date and it is used as the service end date.

The time zones are in UTC. This is how the service start and end date is derived and passed on to the supplier invoice.

This is done as there is no provision date available at the item level, the invoice date was used to derive the delivery period.
