1648862 - Tax Code: Domestic Purchase of Freight Services and Domestic Purchase of Self Services Behaviour

Symptom

You  create a new supplier invoice with the Tax code Domestic purchase of freight services which has the tax rate (ex:7%) but the system is showing the total tax amount as 0 CNY.

So you manually enter the Tax amount as ABC then system displays the error message:Balance is not equal zero: XYZ CNY. The total gross amount differs from the sum of the subtotal and the total tax amounts. You need to adjust these amounts so that the balance is zero.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Supplier Invoicing work center.
  2. Select New Invoice with out Purchase Order link under Common Tasks.
  3. Fill in all the details and select the Tax code as:Domestic Purchase Of Freight Services
  4. Input the tax amount as:ABC
  5. System displays the above mentioned error message.

Resolution

In case of Tax calculation for purchasing Freight Services, when creating the supplier invoice, user has to overwrite the proposed Tax code with Domestic purchase of Freight Services manually.

The system calculates the VAT based on the gross amount and delivers a tax return.
So for freight services, the system needs to calculate the input tax only as there is no tax amount on the invoice.

For example:

Total gross value: 4200 CNY
Total tax amount: 0 CNY

It is not important whether the amount 4200 CNY is gross or net . You  enter this amount 4200 CNY to the net/ gross value and expect  294CNY (TAX RATE 7%) as tax .

But the total tax amount of the invoice will be the zero because of the tax code Domestic purchase of freight services. 

This logic applies for Tax code Domestic purchase of self produced agricultural products also.
