2171161 - Purchase in Transit G/L Account in Journal Entry

Symptom

You are posting an invoice with cash discount that belongs to a fixed asset procurement, however the journal entry did not record the difference in the cash discount account.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Supplier Invoice work center.
  2. Invoices and Credit Memos view.
  3. Show: All Documents.
  4. Edit Supplier Invoice XYZ.
  5. Click on View All.
  6. Go to Document flow
  7. Click on Supplier Invoice to open Journal Entry.

Here you observe that journal entry did not record the difference in the cash discount account.

Cause

The behavior is caused due to your current system setup for posting control profiles for fixed asset procurement, where the Capitalized flag is set for cash discounts. This means that for purchases with regard to fixed asset, you can either post the differences to profit and loss account specified in account determination or to the respective fixed asset. If you select Capitalized, the difference amounts are charged to the respective fixed asset.

Resolution

You notice that default posting profile cannot be changed. In order to create your own customized profile by copying the default one you can follow the below steps:

  1. Go to Business Configuration work center.
  2. Go to Implementation view.
  3. Open the activity Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.
  4. Click on Edit Posting Control Profiles for Procurement Process.
  5. Copy the default one and create your own Posting Control Profile ID.
  6. Again go back to Activity screen.
  7. Open the activity Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.
  8. Click on Generally Accepted Accounting Principles.
  9. Here you assign the newly created Posting Control Profiles for Procurement Process to Accounting Principles.
