Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Payment Management work center. 
  2. Go to Payment Allocation view.
  3. Find and open the respective payment allocation.
  4. Click Post.

The following error is being raised:  'Company <Company ID and name> does not exist or is invalid or not accessible'


The error is raised because there is a bank statement item with Value Date outside the company's validity period.

In the Payment Allocation, you can click View All and refer to the Original Payment section to check the corresponding dates. By opening the related bank statement, the same can be seen via the bank statement item.


You need to either re-create the bank statement with the Value Dates within the company's validity period or adjust the Valid From date of the Org. Unit backwards to cover the Value Date from the bank statement item. The org. unit validity can be adjusted via Organizational Management work center.
