3099635 - Error FF731 when directly posting to a tax account


"Image/data in this KBA is from SAP internal systems, sample data, or demo systems. Any resemblance to real data is purely coincidental."

Error message FF731 is raised when you directly post to a tax account using app Post General Journal Entries.



Reproducing the Issue

  1. You would like to post a journal entry in which you post directly to a tax account;
  2. Error message FF731 is raised on simulating or posting.


One of reasons for this issue is that tax code definition is incorrect for direct tax account posting.
Like below as an example of incorrect definition, tax code contains more than one activated tax rate.
In SSCUI 101016 - Define Tax Codes for Sales and Purchases
101016 EXAMPLE.png


For a direct posting to a tax account, it is only allowed to use a tax code with only one activated tax rate.
Otherwise error message FF731 will be raised.
