Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the General Ledger Work Center.
  2. Select the Source Documents view.
  3. Show Unposted Source Documents.
  4. You will see a few Invoices with the following error message:

Account determination is missing for item type Output Tax. Specify account determination in chart of accounts ABC and account determination profile <DEF>. Column Path Tax->Output Tax->Output Tax, Item Type Output Tax.


Open one of the invoices and check the company of the same. Now, check which country is configured for that Company and Charts of Accounts. After that, you can go to the Tax Lines of the Invoice. You will see that this Invoice has taxes to be posted in a country different than the country of the Invoice company.

This is the reason why the error message is being displayed. For such cases like Tax Abroad postings, Account determination code 9050 is considered for posting lines in accounting document. Since 9050 configuration is missing in configuration, this is pending in the Unposted Source Documents with error stating configuration is missing.


  1. Go to Business Configuration Work Center.
  2. Go to Overview view.
  3. Open the activity Charts of Accounts, Financial Reporting Structures, Account Determination.
  4. Select the option Tax under Account Determination.
  5. Select the Account Determination Profile DEF.
  6. Under the tab Output Tax you need to add the Taxable Event 9050.

After maintaining the mentioned configuration, you can post the Business Transactions.
