2594191 - Spain SII: Customer Invoice Not Included in VAT Return


You've executed a VAT Return Run with Tax Return Type SII - Outgoing Invoices (invoices that you send to your customers, that is, customer invoices) which in turns created a VAT Return. You've checked the VAT Return and noticed that a specific customer invoice was not included.


SAP Business ByDesign.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Tax Management work center.
  2. Go to the Tax Returns view > VAT Returns subview.
  3. Open the VAT Return ID XXX (XXX represents the ID of the VAT Return which you expected the customer invoice to be included).
  4. Go to the Tax Return tab.

From the Document ID list, notice that customer invoice ABC is missing from the list.

ABC represents the ID of the customer invoice.


The customer invoice ABC has status Release Discarded, meaning you've saved the document and then canceled it without releasing it. As a consequence, no journal entry was created, the invoice was not collected by the VAT Return and don't need to be reported to the tax authority.

Only when a customer invoice is released and then canceled (that is, journal entries created), that invoice will get picked in VAT Return (in that case with Processing Type Spain SII - Cancellation) and need to be reported to tax authority.


System is behaving as expected for Spain SII.
