How should the use-tax be accrued, when a voucher is created for multiple distribution lines and different  General Ledger business units? 

A voucher is created under Accounts Payable business unit US001 with 2 Voucher lines as follows:

1) Voucher line 1 has an amount of $1000 and the Distribution line General Ledger Business unit(BU) is US001. The use tax calculated is $42.5.

2) Voucher line 2 has an amount of $1000 and the Distribution line General Ledger Business unit(BU) is US005. The use tax calculated is $60.0.

On posting the voucher in the voucher accounting line table it was observed that the entire use tax of $102.5 was accrued under Accounts payable business unit US001.

The expectation is that in voucher accounting line table $42.50 of use tax (line 1 amount) should be accrued/booked to General Ledger BU US001 and $60.00 of use tax should be accrued/booked to General Ledger BU US005. Sample scenario and the voucher accounting line data for this scenario.
