generating a document that will not show on the tax report

Good Morning,

I have an interesting situation involving the Tax report and the GL. My client had a AR down payment invoice that was entered in error and they made a credit note to cancel it and re enter the invoice correctly. Now when you look at the BP balance everything is correct however when you look at the tax report their is an extra credit because the Credit Note appears but the AR down payment invoice does not.

Ultimately my questions are how do I make an entry to correct the tax report and for the future how do I correct a down payment document without hosing the Tax report?

Thank you for your consideration,

Hi John-Michael,

when you create a DT invoice with the appropriate tax code, this document will appear in the tax report. When using the copy-to functionality in the DT invoice to create the credit memo, it will draw all data including the tax to that document. In the tax report these 2 transactions then cancel each other out.

To correct the entry in your db I would hence recommend to reverse the credit memo with an appropriate invoice & then use the DT invoice as base document for the correct CM.

All the best,
