2977615 - GST India TCS Scenario: How to Post the Documents with TCS Tax Codes for Sales Side Documents

Symptom

As per the new legal change, tax collected at source (TCS) must be collected at the time of receiving the sale consideration. As part of this change, while posting the invoice posting, the TCS tax lines will be posted to the deferred/interim general ledger (GL) account. The movement of the TCS tax lines from the interim GL account to actual GL account will occur at the time of invoice payment.

Going forward an error will occur at the time of invoice posting, if you have not maintained the deferred/interim tax GL account for the output tax against the tax type TCS in the chart of accounts.

Error message: Account determination is missing for item type Deffered Output Tax

Affected tax codes: 593 to 603 (both included)

Country: India
