Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open the Business Configuration work centre.
  2. Find and Open the Tax on Goods and Services Activity.
  3. Open Define Tax Codes.

 You can see here all Tax Codes starting with a Alphabet .

  1. Go to the Supplier Invoicing work centre.
  2. Go to the Common Tasks sub view.
  3. Click New Down payment Request.
  4. Fill in Buying Company XYZ and select a ABC (XYZ represents the Company ID; ABC represents the Product ID).

 The Tax Codes which are maintained in Business Configuration starting with a Alphabet are not available in the dropdown list.


The tax codes which are not 100% deductible are not shown in down payment request.


When a company creates a Down Payment for a Supplier, the Tax Amounts should be fully deductible. That means that once the taxes are reported in the supplier invoices, the company can claim the credit against the taxes reported in the down payment. If the Tax Code in the Down Payment is non-deductible, those taxes will be considered as expense for the Company and then they can never claim that money back.
