1994085 - Cannot Post Supplier Invoice Due to Error Tax amount differs from calculated tax amount

Symptom

You changed manually the Calculated Taxes for a supplier invoice in the tab General, sub-tab Taxes. Upon saving the change, you get an error: Tax amount ABC differs from calculated tax amount DEF.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the work center Supplier Invoicing.
  2. Go to the view Invoices and Credit Memos.

  5. Enter the desired Tax Amounts.

  1. Go to the work center Supplier Invoicing.
  2. Go to the view Invoices and Credit Memos.
  3. Select the invoice and choose Edit.
