3475177 - Journal Entry for Expense Report from SAP Concur Does Not Have a Line Item for VAT Posting


An expense report from SAP Concur has been posted to SAP Business ByDesign via a journal entry. In this journal entry it was expected a line item with VAT/Tax posting, however, there's no such line item.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the General Ledger work center.
  2. Go to the Journal Entries view.
  3. Open the respective journal entry.
  4. Under Line Items section, notice that there's no line item containing VAT/Tax posting.


The respective expense report has been posted with Payment Type = Company Paid (in the respective JSON file this is indicated as "journalPayee": "COPD"), so there is no VAT-Input Tax G/L Account.


The system behaves as expected.

The journal entry posting for an expense report from Concur with Payment Type = Company Paid will usually consists of two line items:

Debit Record to the 'Costs or expenses' G/L Account.

Credit Posting to the 'Other liabilities' G/L Account.
