Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Purchase request and orders work center
  2. Go to Purchase orders
  3. Search and select relevant Purchase order
  4. Click on Edit
  5. Go to Items tab
  6. Go to Taxes Sub tab

Cause

When there are more than one line item in the document,one of the line items has different tax rate, though it has same tax rate type compared to other items.

This is because of the different tax date used in this line item and on that tax date the respective tax rate is different.(There was a change in tax rates)

As system does not accept two line items in same document having different tax rates and thus error is thrown.

Resolution

1.Create separate document for those line items having different tax rate. where you would enter tax dates before 1.7.2020

2.If you want  to have only one document then follow below:

For country Saudi Arabia, tax rate changed from 5% to 15% from 1.7.2020 for tax code 10 (Standard Rated Domestic purchases)

we have a new tax rate type 'reduced' ,so you can create new tax code using this new Tax rate type and then you can use new tax code with tax dates after 1.7.2020 .

 or

 If the country is Germany, we have a newTax Rate Type 6 – Special Standard or 7 – Special Reduced. ,so you can create new tax code using this new Tax rate type and then you can use new tax code with tax dates after 1.7.2020 .Refer the blog for all details

or

For any other country you can do the same if they also have new tax rate types if not system is not currently designed to support different items with different tax rates.
