2066431 - VAT Return Correction Run encounters error message "No reported tax return to be corrected was found".

Symptom

You create and execute a VAT Return Run in order to correct an existing VAT Return, but the Application Log of the run reports the error message "No reported tax return to be corrected was found".

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Tax Management work center.
  2. Go to the VAT Return Runs view.
  3. Open New, Tax Return Run.
  4. Enter the relevant variables, including the option Correction Run and a validity period that does not exactly correspond with the period covered by the VAT Return to be corrected.
  5. Save, activate and execute the run.
  6. You get an error in the Application Log of the run that reads: No reported tax return to be corrected was found.

Cause

If the dates covered by the correction VAT Return Run deviate from those of the VAT Return to be corrected, the system will report that it is unable to find a corresponding VAT Return.

Resolution

In order for the system to correct a particular VAT Return, the correction VAT Return Run needs to cover the exact same dates as the original VAT Return. In order to avoid possible mistakes in the data entry while creating correction VAT Return Runs, it is recommended to proceed as follows:

  1. Go to the Tax Management work center.
  2. Go to the VAT Returns view.
  3. Select the VAT Return to be corrected.
  4. Go to Actions and then Schedule Correction Run.

This ensures that the data copied directly from the original VAT Return and the correction VAT Return Run can be executed without further issues.
