2804352 - Billing documents with net value zero has posting status C without accounting documents


The posting status for billing documents with zero net value is 'C Journal entry has been created' although no accounting documents are generated.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create an inovice with zero net value and no accruals etc. No accounting document is created.
  2. The posting status of the billing document is "C Journal entry has been created".


This is the standard system design.

The reason behind this is that it does not make any sense to have an accounting document with zero value. Invoice has a zero value, therefore from accounting point of view, it is considered as completed.


If posting status "D Billing document is not relevant for accounting" is expected, please consider to use a billing type without account determination procedure being assigned. See KBA 2557174 which explains when posting status D is set.
