Cause

The validity of the expense type is not within the validity maintained for the Tax code group.

For example: You have maintained the validity of Expense type is from 01.01.2018 and validity of Tax code group is from 04.04.2018. Here, expense type must lie within the validity of tax code group.

Either you need to extend validity of tax code group as 01.01.2018 to unlimited or limit the validity of expense type ZZZZ to 04.04.2018 to unlimited, so that validity of expense type lies completely within validity of tax code group YY.
