3455154 - Error 'Direct postings to tax accounts (**) are not permitted' Occurs During Migration

Symptom

You are encountering an error message 'Direct postings to tax accounts (**)  are not permitted' while using the migration object FI - G/L account balance and open/line item in the Migrate Your Data app. 

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Open the Migrate Your Data app.
  2. Navigate to the corresponding migration project.
  3. Select the migration object 'FI - G/L account balance and open/line item'.
  4. Try to migrate open tax items / VAT line items and you encounter the error message 'Direct postings to tax accounts (**)  are not permitted'.

Resolution

  • Open tax must be settled before data migration

  • Tax code isn’t needed for the initial load of G/L account balance and open/line item using the migration cockpit and is therefore not supported
    • Exception: Deferred tax can be migrated with the migration activities for Open items payable and Open items receivable
