Not able to Post downpayment document to accounting.

Hi Gurus,

I am facing problem at the time of posting an downpayment request to accounting for few of the service materials.

The error is as follows in details,


No VAT registration numbers are allowed for down payments/requests

Message no. FS229


You entered a tax code for a down payment or down payment request which is defined as an EC tax code. This is not permitted, since this posting is not subject to EC tax. A tax statement requirement exists upon the delivery of goods to a foreign EC country, but not, however, upon receipt of the down payment.

System Response

The system does not allow the tax code.


Use a different tax code or EC-identifier.


What changes for TAX configuration I need to carry out to remove this error.

      Check if any of the condition types which has the account is having a tax code.. That tax code shouldn't have defined as EC tax code.

      When you double click on the line item condition type which will be posted to accounts, you could see the G/L account and tax code. Ask you FI consultant to check how that tax code has been defined.

      Btw, it is always good if you open a new thread.. But you can refer the old thread inside your post.
