Reproducing the Issue

- Go to the Invoice Entry view.
- Select the relevant Purchase Order.
- Select New Invoice and fill the mandatory details.
- Select Check.
The error "Tax code only valid for import VAT items" appears.
The Import VAT tax code is not valid for Item type : Invoice Items. It is only valid for import items.You can check the item type under Items-> Basic Data-> Item Type.
This is the expected behavior. When you import goods and the billing of the goods for these items along with separate Tax, we can create a Customs Duty Invoice and assign the Tax code along with the Purchase Order Reference in the Items Tab. The customs duty invoices cannot be created with reference to a Purchase Order from the Invoice Entry screen. You have to manually create the Supplier Invoice from the common tasks view.
Alternatively, you can create a Supplier invoice with items of Item Type Import VAT debit Item and use this tax code.
