Changing Withholding tax base amount- 1099 invoice

Hi Friends,

Need your help again.

Using T. Code FB09, i can change WHT base as long as the invoice is not cleared. However, how to change WHT base where a particular invoice has been cleared?

I have actually made some cchanges to configuration where by i have removed tick for 'line item not cleared'. Ideally with this setting it should allow me to change to WHT base. But the same is not happening.

Can any one help me out with any other steps that are involved.

Thanks in advance,

    Hi Rajanikant,

    Please review note 363650 here you will see the following


    C) Change Rules for classical and extended withholding tax

    If the withholding tax base amount should be changed after a

    docment has been paid already, the following steps are required:

    For Classical Withholding Tax and only if the withholding tax

    amount is zero.

    Change of withholding tax base amount or withholding tax code of a

    cleared invoice.

    If the withholding tax base amount and/or the withholding tax code

    needs to be changed after an invoice has been cleared please follow


    As you see from the above information the following quotation "only if

    the withholding tax amount is zero".

    If a withholding tax amount other than zero has been posted, you cannot

    change the values via transaction FB02.

    Please also review the IMG documentation for transaction OB32 via

    spro -> Financial accounting -> Financial accounting global settings

    -> Document -> Line item -> Document change rules, line item.

    here you will see the following information;

    Document Change Rules, Line Item

    In this activity, you determine under which circumstances fields within

    posted documents can be changed.


    For a number of fields, the system itself determines that they can no

    longer be changed after posting. This includes all fields which are

    central to the principles of orderly accounting, for example, the amount

    posted and the account.

    The system also prevents the update objects from being changed in

    documents which have already been posted, independent of the document

    change rules

    Thus as you can see from the above description if an amount has been

    posted to the account you cannot change the fields despite entering in

    the field in OB32 as changable.

    with kind regards
