3052021 - Error KI280 happens when releasing billing document to accounting

Symptom

You are trying to release billing document to accounting and you get KI280 error:
"Define a cost element category for account xxxx"

Environment

SAP S/4HANA Cloud

Reproducing the Issue

Release billing document to accounting

Cause

In S/4Hana Cloud, if you post a non statistical SD condition to the G/L account, it is automatically posted into profitabilty analysis. So it is ensured that the complete revenue is posted in profitability analysis. For the G/L account, a cost element category must be assigned. Otherwise releasing billing document to Financial Accounting is not possible.

Resolution

This is standard design. You need to assign cost element category to the account.
