- Choose an employee for Payee.

System shows an error message saying Account not found for company XXX and customer/supplier YYY.
There is no account determination group assigned to the employee.
The pre-delivered account determination group 4050 is applied for employees.
This account determination group 4050 gets assigned to an employee automatically after the first expense report is created for this employee.
So you need to access Travel and Expenses workcenter and go to Common Tasks > New Expense Report on Behalf and create an expense report with the minimum value for this employee.
After performing this procedure, you will be able to create the Outgoing Cash Payment for Petty Cash.
