Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to General Ledger work center.
  2. Go to Reconciliation view.
  3. Search for run ID.
  4. Under tax tab-VAT / Sales Tax Balances subtab, you can see that there is an absolute difference amount.


One possible reason is that you reverse a journal entry which is posted in a previous period, e.g. AAA.  And you post the reversal journal entry to a later period, e.g. CCC. This will lead to differences in the Reconciliation Run between accounting period AAA and CCC(AAA and CCC represent the accounting period).


This is the expected behavior. The difference is caused by the reversal postings.
