2737155 - Error: Source Document XYZ Reported in Tax Return XXX is not Posted


You observe that when you are releasing Tax Return XXX (XXX means the Tax Return ID), there is an error message stating that the Source Document XYZ (XYZ means the Source Document ID) Reported in Tax Return XXX is not Posted.

However, when you check the source document XYZ, this is already posted and in Finished status.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Tax Management Work Center.
  2. Go to the Tax Returns view and then to the VAT Returns subview.
  3. Select Tax Return ID XXX.
  4. Click Release.

Error: Source Document XYZ Reported in Tax Return XXX is not Posted.


The reason for the error is that for the invoice XYZ having both credit memo lines and invoice lines, the conversion from transaction currency to tax reporting currency has not happened correctly.


Create an incident with SAP for backend correction with your explicit written approval.

We will correct these entries on the tax register from the backend.

Once done, delete the Tax Return ID XXX and reschedule Tax Return Run. The new Tax Return should not have the reported error.

As a workaround to avoid such issue, create invoices and credit memo as separate documents.
