3460817 - Error M8285 "Balance in currency &, currency type &" when creating supplier invoice with planned delivery costs

Symptom

After activating purchase account management for certain company code, when creating supplier invoice with planned delivery costs, error message M8285 "Balance in currency &, currency type &" happens.

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Activate purchase account management for the company code.
  2. Create supplier invoice in app Create Supplier Invoice or Create Supplier Invoice - Advance (MIRO).
  3. The error M8285 "Balance in currency &, currency type &" happens when saving or during simulation.

Cause

In the calculation schema for the purchase order in the "Control" view, the entry for the column "AcctKy" (Account Key) that is maintained as identical to the entry in column "Accrls" (Account Key - Accruals). This can be checked in SSCUI - 101095 "Set Calculation Schema - Purchasing".

Example:
Level Counter CType ...  AcctKy Accrls
31 3 FRC1 FR1 FR1

These two account keys must not be identical, as the purchase amount for freight costs should be posted to a separate purchase account for freights.

Instead, you could correct the entry as follows:

Level Counter CType ...  AcctKy Accrls
31 3 FRC1 FRE FR1

Important: Note that you should not change the calculation schema in the live system, because this could lead to various inconsistencies.

If you intend to correct the calculation schema with reference to the account key, you should test the effects in a test system or a quality system thoroughly before you implement them into live operations. The changes should affect only new purchase orders.

Resolution

Check if the calculation schema is maintained correctly in SSCUI 101095 - "Set Calculation Schema - Purchasing".
