1680833 - Unable to Post a Supplier Invoice Due to an Error Message: Balance sheet account is not permitted with cost centers

Symptom

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Supplier Invoicing work center.
  2. Select New Invoice Without Purchase Order.
  3. Fill in all the details and select the Post button.

Resolution

The system never allows posting of a supplier invoice to Account Assignment Type: Cost Center and Projects Task to Balance Sheet Accounts.

The line item of the supplier invoice is assigned to a G /L Account: Prepaid Expenses which is of type other assets, which is a balance sheet account. 

Normally the balance sheet accounts are of types Assets and Liabilities.

So you need to change the G/L Account and try to post the supplier invoice.
