3138372 - Lease Contract Invoice Run Creates Zero Amount Supplier Invoice


You execute the Lease Contract Invoice run for Supplier XYZ (XYZ represents the supplier ID). After the run finished you notice that the resulting supplier invoice got created with a zero amount. You expected the run to derive the invoice amount from the respective lease contract payment conditions.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. In the Supplier Invoicing workcenter go to the Invoices and Credit Memos view. 
  2. Open the Advanced search. 
  3. In the Supplier ID field, enter XYZ.
  4. In the Assigned to field select Lease Contract. 
  5. Press Go.
  6. You notice the total zero gross amount for the generated invoice. 


The invoice entry setting of the supplier invoice is set to Gross. However, for the automatic invoice creation via the Lease Contract invoice run the invoice entry setting must be defaulted to net. Only then is it possible to correctly calculate the due tax amount.


Trigger the Invoice Entry setting to be defaulted to Net:

  1. Create a manual supplier invoice for supplier XYZ. 
  2. In the Invoice, go to the general tab. 
  3. Here, in the Invoice Entry field select Net. 
  4. Post the invoice. 

Now execute a Lease Contract Invoice run. This time the Invoice Entry setting is defaulted to Net. As a result the invoice is generated with the correct invoice amount(s) according to the lease contract's payment conditions.

Alternatively, if you prefer to work with gross invoice amounts, generate the supplier invoice with the lease contract posting run but do not select the Post Invoice indicator.

In the generated invoice, you can now manually change the net and tax amount (s) for the invoice item(s).
