Symptom

Error "Changing the tax code not possible; account has a balance" is raised in SSCUI 150001 - Manage G/L account Master Data, although the Balance is 0 in App 'Display G/L Account Balances'

Environment

SAP S/4HANA CLOUD

Reproducing the Issue

 In SSCUI "Manage G/L Account Master Data", try to change field "Tax Category" for a G/L account.

Cause

The G/L account balance is checked in your production system as well.

Resolution

Please set the G/L account balance in production system to zero.

The change of the G/L account in the production system only becomes effective after the import of the current business change project, it must be ensured that the zero balance is fulfilled at the time of the import.

When the changes are saved, the G/L account will be locked for posting in the production system.
However, this lock will reset automatically when the business change project is imported to the production system.
