Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to General Ledger work center.
  2. Select Journal Entries view.
  3. Search for Customer Invoice XYZ.
  4. Click on Journal Entry ID 123.

Expected Sample Posting:

Debit:    100 - Accounts Recivable A/C 

Credit:  123 - Sales Revenue A/C

Actual Posting:

Debit: 200 - Foreign Currency Rounding Differences A/C

Credit: 123 - Sales Revenue A/C


If the invoices with total amounts as zero, then system will not debit the Trade Receivables A/C


Whenever the invoices with total amounts as zero arises then system will choose the G/L Account from the activity Charts of Accounts, Financial Reporting Structures, Account Determination, Subledger, General Ledger, Others and picks the G/L Account maintained under Foreign Currency Rounding Differences sub-tab.

When the balance is zero the postings will flow through another account i.e., Foreign Currency Rounding Differences instead of Receivables A/C.
