Tax Refund - AR Credit Memo with Tax Only set

Hi, Expert,

I am copying one AR Invoice to AR Credit memo, and check "Tax Only" field to handling the refund for Tax only case.

But I got an error message when I click "ADD":

"AR Credit Memo - Rows - Tax Only line cannot disable the tax only calculation in a AR Credit Memo documents that was based on another document..."

I don't quite get this message on "DIsable" wording... I am enabling the Tax Only but not disable !!??

Please help me solve it for my customer is waiting for this credit memo.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

Michelle for Allen

    Hi,

    What this handling error message means is that the Tax-Only tickbox cannot be used as it was not used in the base document. The tax selection for deliveries, AR Invoices (or any document that creates a journal entry) must be consistent.

    For example:

    It is similar to creating a delivery with tax code A, then copying

    the delivery to an invoice and trying to change the tax code to

    code B, this is not possible.

    It is not possible to create a target docuemnt without the tax-only tick box if the base document has it and vice versa.

      Hi, Gordon and Jitin,

      I know the copy can't work;

      but I also did try to add a stand-alone AR Credit memo with service type, the system gave me:

      1. If I didn't entry account code, then I got Tax amount after I click "Tax Only"; but system not allowed me to add the record because the account code is blank.

      2. If I entried the account code, then I got '0' on tax amount , and whole document became '0'. Is this a bug?

      Thanks for your prompt help.

      Best regards,

      Michelle

    Hi Michelle,

    If you only Credit back Tax only, you probably to do it manually instead of copying from the A/R Invoice. The error message clear said :Tax Only line cannot disable the tax only calculation in a AR Credit Memo documents that was based on another document.

    Thanks,

    Gordon
