1715287 - Cannot Post Supplier Invoice in India with Withholding Taxes due to Technical Error

Symptom

You cannot post an invoice that contains withholding taxes for India. You get an error: A technical error occurred: /SRMAP/LSIV_SIV 393. Report an incident.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Supplier Invoicing work center.
  2. Go to the Invoices and Credit Memos view.
  3. Open the relevant invoice.
  4. Choose Post.
  5. You get an error: A technical error occurred: /SRMAP/LSIV_SIV 393. Report an incident.

Cause

One of the Tax Code is mapped to a Tax Event which is assigned with a Tax Type for which no Tax Rate is defined in the Fine-Tuning (= 0%).

To verify the cause above:

  2. Go to the Invoices and Credit Memos view.
  3. Open the relevant invoice.
  4. Go to the General tab and then the Withholding Taxes subtab.

Resolution

In case the supplier invoice tax amount is correct which means that no Surcharge / EC / SHEC on Income Tax is expected (only Withholding Income Tax), then the Tax Code should be mapped to a Tax Event that is only assigned to the tax type 'Withholding Income Tax'.

  1. Go to the Business Configuration work center.
  2. Go to the Implementation Projects view.
  3. Choose a current project (alternatively, create a new one).
  4. Choose Open Activity List and then go to Fine-Tune.
  5. Open the activity Withholding Tax - India.
  6. Select the relevant Tax Code.
  7. Select a Tax Event for it that does not have Surcharge, EC and SHEC.
  8. Choose Save.
