3383825 - Down Payment Request Showing in Exception Status but there are no Errors


You have created a down payment request and all details are correctly entered but when you select "Post" , it shows "Exception" status, however there are no errors in the Exceptions tab or on selecting "Check" button.


SAP Business By Design

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier Invoicing work center
  2. Select view: invoices and Credit memos
  3. Search for the relevant down payment request
  4. Select Check
  5. No errors/warnings displayed
  6. Now select Post
  7. The document gets saved but status is in "Exception"


The down payment request is created for company belonging to country India and the supplier is from a different country, in such case, down payment request with withholding tax is not supported in Business by Design system.


This is a known limitation. Kindly remove the withholding tax from Items->Taxes->Withholding Tax Details sub tab, and then the down payment request will become consistent.
