3164628 - Withholding taxes being considered when clearing an invoice and its reversal document

Symptom

When trying to clear an invoice and its reversal document together via "Clear Outgoing Payments" or "Clear Incoming Payments" app, system generates withholding tax difference.

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

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open "Clear Outgoing Payments" or "Clear Incoming Payments" app.
  2. Select an invoice and its reversal document to clear together.
  3. The amount of the invoice and its reversal document is the same, but there is a withholding tax difference which impedes the posting.

Cause

When you clear open items without a transfer posting, no withholding tax is posted.

Resolution

Turn on the "Transfer Posting" option in "Clear Outgoing Payments" and "Clear Incoming Payments" app to clear the invoice and its reversal document together without considering the withholding tax.
