Error "The vendor does not exist", but I see it in table LFA1

Hello friends!

Please tell me how to proceed in the following situation. In Z-transaction, the client wants to create an entry for the vendor X1, but an error message is received "The vendor/plant does not exist". With the plant everything is fine, the error appears with vendor. And in the table LFA1 I see all the data on the vendor X1, which means it exists in the system. Strange why an error appears...

In the test system, an error with this vendor does not occur.
I wanted to check the settings of these vendors, but in the transaction XK03 I do not have enough rights (vendor from Asia area), in the table LFA1 this vendor has the same data in the productive and test system.

Tell me, please, what other tables / transactions I should check to compare the supplier in two systems.
And why an error "The vendor does not exist" may appear if there is vendor X1 in SAP.

Thank you very much for your advice!!!
