Post zero invoice

Hi all,

To meet VAT requirements in Italy, we need to post a vendor invoice (sent to ourselves) with a zero amount, leading to a posting of 5 lines in G/L : 1 line with the vendor info for a zero amount, a debit and a credit for the base amount to the same expense account, and 2 lines for VAT receivable and payable. This is known as Self Invoicing. Does anyone know how to do this ?

Alternatively, we could make a journal entry, is there a way around the SAP setting that the line item will be ignored when the amount is zero ?

Thanks for any input !

    hi Mariette,

    In Hungary (where I am from) in these cases we post only VAT receivable and payable lines, i. e. directly on the VAT accounts where you can state the original amoutn, from what the VAT was calculated. This way all legal reporting works fine.

    hope this helps
