When i want to settle customer posts either through Customer collect settle open transactions or through a general journal i got the following error message.
"Account number for transaction type Sales Tax does noet exist".
I checked the ledger and customer posting profiles, The details of Sales Order and Invoice behind the open transactions, the Sales groups and Sales codes........
What can it be besides above mentioned?
You can review your posting profile for Sales tax under General ledger, Setup, Sales tax, Ledger posting groups.
Also, you can add a default main account under General ledger, Setup, Posting, Accounts for automatic transactions, using a Posting type of Sales tax.
Hope this helps.
This is all set and checked. I have to add that the functionality did work before, but now we get this kind of errors.
Those are all the correct places to set your main accounts for Sales tax transactions. It's possible you could be doing some virtual tables that aren't supported, or perhaps you made changes on one AOS, but the other AOS still has cached setup records from before the change. Is there a stack trace with that error? Can you replicate it in a testing or development environment, and breakpoint it to see where it is occurring?
find the solution ? i have the same error but for vendors
Hi Carlusha99/ Zoila Goñi Vera,
Have you checked this link?
Hi. Have the same problem. Nothing mentioned above helps. Did anybody find a solution?
Have you checked the solutions and links provided above?
If your problem is different and not adressed here, please open a new thread and provide some additional information ideally supported by screenprints.
Thank you for your reply.
Yes, i've checked all the solutions suggested.
But i kind of settled the problem myself.
The problem: when trying to post a general journal i got a massage "Account number for transaction type Sales Tax does not exist".
I got the same massage when trying to invoice a purchase order.
Posting profile for Sales tax in GL was properly set up and default main account in Accounts for automatic transaction was alredy added. But neither of it helped.
Solution: i configured account structures for all the main accounts from the Sales tax posting profile. In my situation it helped.
You mean that you included all sales tax accounts into a new account structure, right?
Having same problem. I also include the sales tax accounts in structure but still ledger accounts are missing during posting. Applies to both PO and Sales Invoice.
Check the STC number at the time of entry. it is having blank. that's why it is showing error.
Please make sure the accounts mapped for Sales Tax under Ledger posting group (For Sales Tax) are included in the Account Structure . When I face the similar issue while posting Sales Order Invoice, I went back to Account Structures and included the new GL account that I've used in Ledger Posting for VAT. Then it worked for me.
i already faced the same problem in posing sales order invoice, after checking the posting profile for the Sales Tax, you need to make sure that the Sales Tax ledger Accounts ( Receivable & Payable ) configured in the account structure.
After that it will be posted without any issue .
