2949448 - Missing PST Tax Line Item in Journal Entry of Supplier Invoice

Symptom

You have created a Supplier Invoice with Tax Country Canada and you expected a G/L Line Item in the Journal Entry for the PST Amount.

Environment

SAP Business ByDesign.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Supplier Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to the Invoices and Credit Memos view.
  3. Open the relevant document.
  4. Click View All.
  5. Go to the Document Flow tab.
  6. Open the associated Journal Entry. 

Here you expected that system should have included a Line Item with the PST Taxes.

Cause

The Tax Type PST (Provincial Sales Tax at Province level) is generally expensed off for the Purchase / Expense Items and the Amount is not deductible. This can be checked using the steps below:

  1. Go to the Supplier Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to the Invoices and Credit Memos view.
  3. Open the relevant document.
  4. Click View All.
  5. Go to the Items tab -> Taxes sub-tab.

That is why the system does not create a separate G/L Line Item in the Journal Entry. On the other hand, GST at federal level is Deductible, and the Amount is reported as Input Tax Credit in monthly reporting. In these cases the GST will have a separate Line Item in the Journal Entry.

On the Sales side, the Seller has to collect the PST from the customer and report and remit PST to the government as part of monthly reporting.

Resolution

System is working as designed.
