Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier Invoicing work center
  2. Select existing ERS document (self invoice having reverse charge tax code)
  3. Select copy
  4. The new document will not be created with the proper document number format which is maintained for self invoice
  5. Now, goto Common Tasks-> New Manual ERS Invoice
  6. The document number is correct as per Numbering format maintained in Business Configuration->Document Numbering Formats for Supplier Invoicing


When you copy a self invoice, the document numbering rules will not be applicable, as the invoice is treated as a normal supplier invoice.

Please refer Help Document: "Official Document Number for Self Invoice - India"


Please create the invoice manually from Common tasks-> New Manual ERS Invoice
