Payables > Invoices > Create Invoices UI

For an Invoice created using a Supplier Site with multiple BU assignments, each with a different Liability Account, the system always defaults the Liability Distribution Account of the first site assignment from the list of all accessible site assignments.     The Liability Account should be defaulted from the first Supplier Site Assignment for the BU selected. 

Detailed example
1.  A Supplier Site has more than one Business Unit (BU) assignment and each assignment has a different Liability Account.

This site has two BU assignments
  'BU1' which has liability account xxxxx
  'BU2' which has liability account zzzzz

2. Payables > Invoices > Create Invoices
    Enter an Invoice using a User with access to both BU's.
3. Enter Business Unit as 'BU2'
4. Enter Supplier as 'TEST_SUPPLIER'
5. Enter Supplier Site as 'TEST_SUPPLIER_SITE'
6. Navigate to the Accounting tab of the Invoice header and the Liability
Account is defaulted as xxxxx (BU1 - first assignment), where as it should be zzzzz (for BU2)
