2478109 - How to Create a Negative VAT Entry for Credit Memo

Symptom

You want to create a Manual VAT Entry for Credit Memo in order to have into Output Vat Register a negative tax import, however system does not allow to create a negative value.

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Tax Management Work Center.
  2. Go to Manual Tax Entries > VAT Entries.
  3. Click on New > Tax Entry.

The system does not allow to create VAT Entry with negative signs.

Cause

A Manual Tax Entry with only one Tax Code in Debit and Credit side gives only a sum of zero.

Resolution

In order to resolve this, it is necessary to create two manual Tax Entries instead of one:

One Manual Tax Entry with only Debit item with the respective Tax Code and the other Manual Tax Entry with only Credit item with respective Tax Code.

The output tax with +/- sign will be then visible in Output VAT register of the VAT Return.
