Cause

The parent Company BBB has the tax return arrangement for tax return type WHT Return -XYZ. Now, while trying to add company AAA as subsidiary to BBB, it is expected to give error.

Basically, the Subsidiary Company AAA has the tax return arrangement for tax return type WHT Return -XYZ, in the same Tax Authority. It is not possible or not necessary to add a subsidiary with a tax return arrangement which already exists in the parent company BBB.

Resolution

You have to Report an Incident to SAP. We will update the Subsidiary Company from backend.
