2382654 - Error Message: Tax Return Arrangement is Not Valid For Period DD.MM.YYYY

Symptom

You are creating a new VAT Return Run and get the error message: Tax Return Arrangement ABC (ABC is the Tax Return Arrangement ID) is not valid for period from DD.MM.YYYY to DD.MM.YYYY. Either change the validity period of the tax return arrangement or select a different From/To date.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to the Tax Management work centre.
  2. Go to the VAT Return Runs sub view in Periodic Tasks view.
  3. Create a new Tax Return Run for Tax Return Arrangement ID with the relevant information:

Tax Return Arrangement ID is ABC for the Year YYYY and From DD.MM.YYYY to DD.MM.YYYY.

The Tax Authority is XXX (XXX stands for the Tax Authority) and the Company is PQR (PQR is the Company ID).

You get the error message:

'Tax Return Arrangement ABC is not valid for period from DD.MM.YYYY to DD.MM.YYYY. Either change the validity period of the tax return arrangement or select a different From/To date. Save failed.'

Cause

You are getting the error message as the validity period of this Tax Return Arrangement has expired.

You can check this is as follows:

  1. Go to the Tax Management work centre.
  2. Go to the Tax Authorities sub view in Tax Authorities view.
  3. Search and select the Tax Authority XXX.
  4. Click on the Edit button.
  5. Navigate to the Company Tax Arrangements tab.

There is one or more Tax Return Arrangements for Company PQR, valid from DD.MM.YYYY+1 to unlimited.

For the same company, there are other Tax Return Arrangements including Tax Return Arrangement ABC with validity from DD.MM.YYYY- (minus) L (L stands for any number of years which can be substracted from the year YYYY) to DD.MM.YYYY.

  1. Now navigate to the Tax Return Arrangements sub tab.
  2. Here the validity of the Tax Return Arrangement ABC is maintained as from DD.MM.YYYY-L to  DD.MM.YYYY- (minus) 1.

Resolution

A VAT Return Run can only be scheduled within the time frame for which the Tax Return Arrangement is valid.

If the validity period of the Tax Return Arrangement is not extended or ammended, the Return Run cannot be scheduled for a date range beyond the validity period. The run will not get created because of the above mentioned error message.

You have to change the validity of the Tax Return Arrangement to allow the creation of a new VAT Return Run.
