Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Customer Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to the Invoice Documents view.
  3. Select the Not Released invoice ABC, and click Golden Tax Relevant button. (ABC represents the ID of the customer invoice)
  4. In the Golden Tax Processing tab, click Save and Close. This invoice is than marked as golden tax relevant.
  5. Go to the Golden Tax Invoices - Fully Digitalized Electronic Invoices sub view.
  6. Select the invoice ABC, click Prepare for Download button.
  7. In the Download File screen, click File Download, system generate the outbound file.
  8. Open the file, in Details sheet, you notice that the Project Name contains the product description only. There is nowhere to see the project ID information.

However, in previous Golden Tax Invoice function, the product ID is presented in the outbound file.


We have checked with LPE (local product expert), there is no requirement from the legal documents to have product ID in the file.


This is the designed behavior in the Fully Digitalized Electronic Invoices (FDEI) function.
