SAP Business ByDesign

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Home work center.
  2. Go to the Work view.
  3. Select the Inbox subview.
  4. Show Open Tasks.

You have the business task: Approve Tax Payment Difference <Identifier of the Tax Payment> - <DifferenceAmount> (<Tax Payment Amount>


  • When the amount of the assigned tax return differs from the tax payment amount (tax payment difference), a task Review and Release Tax Payment is created in the Tax Management work center to process the tax payment difference. Once the employee has released this payment, a task Approve Tax Payment Differences is generated in the approver worklist.
  • This also happens if an appropriate tax return is not found for a tax payment, or several tax returns are found for a tax payment.


This is the normal expected system behavior. This task cannot be deactivated.
