Credit note with positive tax component

Hi All

Our AP department are trying to enter a credit note into SAP with the following components:

  • Debit $5,000 with 10% tax
  • Credit $17,000 with 0% tax

It doesn't appear to be possible to post this invoice. When posting as a credit note the invoice amount is $11,500 but the tax amount needs to be -$500 to make the invoice balance which SAP does not allow.

Is there a way to post this document in SAP or should we ask vendor to split it into separate debit and credit documents?

    Hi Robyn

    Requirement is not very much clear..explain with example.

    If you have 2 for Cr note and other for Debit have to raise 2 separate docs and obviously two separate postings.

    However if you explain, we may see the possibility
