S/4 HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

In App Post General Journal Entries (App ID F0718) user tries to make direct posting to tax account.


It is not possible to make a direct posting to a tax account in app Post General Journal Entries.


  1. In App Manage G/L Account Master (App ID F0731A) 

    Tax account Definition:
    Account used exclusively for posting taxes:
    Tax Categories ">" and "<" are only supported for tax accounts
    < Input tax account
    > Output tax account

    "Posting without Tax" is not applicable to a tax account. 

    "Post Automatically Only" is set for tax accounts.  This categorization cannot be changed for this account group.
    Do not maniplulate the account Group settings of the tax account.
    When creating a new tax account ensure a true tax account is used as a basis.

  2. App Post Tax Payables (APP ID F1597)  - Purpose

    The output tax account cannot normally be posted directly, which means that a transfer posting for the account balance cannot be made directly to the tax payable account. You can use this app to pay tax amounts by posting the balances of input and output tax accounts to a tax payable account. The app does not require entry of a tax code, enabling you to make manual adjustments to tax accounts directly. Postings can be made in all relevant ledgers for the accounts for which you are responsible.
