3280511 - System is Showing Withholding Taxes in One Line Only in a Supplier Invoice Journal Entry


You notice that supplier invoice is grouping withholding taxes on the accounting entry, the invoice in this case for example has 3 entries, it should appear separately for each entry in the invoice.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to General Ledger work center. 
  2. Go to Source Documents subview. 
  3. Select All Documents. 
  4. Search for the Document ID XYZ (XYZ represents the Document ID) in this case a Supplier Invoice. 
  5. Click View All. 
  6. Go to Document Flow tab and then click in the Journal Entry ABC (ABC represents the Journal Entry ID) of the Supplier Invoice.
  7. Here you will see supplier invoice is grouping withholding taxes on the accounting entry.


This is an expected system behavior. Taxes in SAP Business ByDesign are always posted in an aggregated manner.


As long as different supplier invoice items have same tax attributes (tax code, tax event, tax type, tax rate type) the taxes will be aggregated and posted. This is a standard behaviour.

There is only one exception, that is when the extension scenario between supplier invoice item and tax register split item is activated. Only in that case aggregation is stopped and individual line items are posted. But this rather an exception.
