  2. Go to the Periodic Tasks view.
  3. Go to the Reconciliation subview.
  4. Show All Reconciliation runs and Find Run 123(123 here represents Reconciliation Run).

You could see Absolute Difference between the Balances in Register and Balance in Ledger.

Cause

Balance in Tax Register gets cleared when the respective Withholding Tax Return is Released and Balance in Tax Ledger gets cleared when the Tax Return is Paid.

You can check the Withholding Tax Returns by the following Steps:

  1. Go to the Tax Management Work center.
  2. Go to the Tax Returns view and then to Withholding Tax Returns Subview.
  3. Show All  Tax Returns and Search for the respective Tax Return ID.

The Status of the Tax Return will be Reported which clears the Balance in Tax Register and it will be shown as zero.Since the Tax Return is not paid yet,the Balance in Tax Ledger remains causing the Absolute Difference.

Resolution

You have to pay against the respective Withholding Tax Return and the Balance in Tax Ledger will be cleared.
