2429101 - Tax Payment Allocates Amount to Tax Difference Account Instead of Sales Tax Advance Payment Account


You have released VAT tax return A with a tax payable amount, e.g. -1000,00 LC. Later you schedule  and then release correction run B for the same period, resulting in a higher tax payable amount, e.g. -1500,00 LC.
After this you generate an external tax payment through allocating the total amount (-1500,00 LC) to the tax authority in the payment allocation.
The tax payment has automatically assigned the released correction run B.
In the Clearing Data section of the tax payment you notice, however, that the payment only considers the difference between tax return A and correction tax return B (here -500,00 LC) as Assigned Tax Returns' Amount.
The remaining amount (the tax amount of tax return A) appears as a Payment Difference Amount which is going to be allocated to the Tax Difference account as maintained in Tax Account Determination (Fine Tuning).  
You expected the total tax amount (here, of -1500,00 LC) to be considered as Assiged Tax Returns' Amount which would then be posted to the respective Sales Tax Advance Payment Account as maintained in Fine Tuning.
