2825712 - Error - Posting date must not be before posting date XX/XX/XXXX of tax return Z for United States

Symptom

You are trying to post the Tax Payment and you are getting error - Posting date must not be before posting date XX/XX/XXXX of tax return Z for United States.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Tax Management work center.
  2. Click on New Tax Payment.
  3. Enter the details.
  4. Click on Check.
  5. You see the error - Posting date must not be before posting date XX/XX/XXXX of tax return Z for United States.

NOTE: The error occurs for all countries. Here, the country name = United States is just an example.

Cause

You can post the Tax Payment on or after the End Date of the Tax Return. For example: You have created Tax Return for the period 01.04.2019 to 30.04.2019 then the posting date of the Tax Payment should be 30.04.2019 or after.

If you enter the date as 29.04.2019 then system will consider this Tax Prepayment and hence you have to change the Tax Payment Type to Tax Prepayment.

Resolution

This is a standard system behavior.
