When you create a Supplier Invoice with Credit Memo Item and Invoice Item you receive the error message Only positive total tax amount permitted.
Reproducing the Issue
- Go to the Supplier Invoicing work center.
- Go to the Common Tasks view.
- Select New Invoice without Purchase Order.
- Complete the relevant data.
- In the Items Tab, add 2 lines for Credit Memo and 1 line Invoice Item.
You have the error message: Only positive total tax amount permitted.
The system does not support a negative tax amount. This is an expected system behavior.
As a workaround you can create two separate documents one for Invoice Items, and the other for Credit Memo Items.
