Unexpected Liability/WriteOff entries when Invoice and Prepayment Application accounted in one run

(Doc ID 1564014.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 18, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Payables - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Unexpected Liability/Writeoff accounting entries are generated when accounting is done
in one run of the Payables Accounting Process for an invoice and a prepayment application to this invoice

- both the invoice and prepayment are in base currency
- the problem does not occur if the invoice is accounted in one run and the prepayment application is accounted in another run

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1- enter prepayment
2- validate it, pay it and run the Payables Accounting process
3- enter standard invoice
4- validate it
5- apply prepayment
6- Run the Payables Accounting Process
7- See unexpected Liability/Writeoff accounting entries generated for both the INVOICE and PREPAYMENT APPLICATION events

Due to this issue, accounting is incorrect
