Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to  Supplier Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to  Invoices and credit memos view.
  3. Search and Select Edit for required Invoice ID.
  4. Go to the Document Flow tab.
  5. You can see a transaction pending for accounting with an inconsistency.


User is using a Custom Tax Deductibility code of <ES1||2|1-A> within a reverse charge tax code 155 - EU Purchase of Services, reverse Charge. This is deducting from the receivable line only which results in error on consistency check. Deductibility is not applicable on payable line items and this scenario where deductibility code is applied in payable line item is not reproducible.


This is a Standard System Behavior.

The  "Tax on goods and services" activity, the deductibility configuration is maintained for tax code 155, however the custom deductibility code is been deleted already.

Therefore, cancel the invoice and re-create it again so that taxes can be properly recalculated.
