Why is 100% discount on an Cash Sales has wrong Tax GL impact?

edited Apr 18, 2023 11:00PM in Ask A Guru 5 comments

Hello Gurus,

I am facing a very odd scenario and I would appreciate any insights on what the postings really mean or what i might be doing wrong.

1) I have created a tax group since i need to apply two different tax codes on one invoice.(16% and 2%).

2) i have created an invoice worth 300 gross. Meaning the Net amount is 254.24. This has been applied two VAT codes, i.e, 16% and 2%. See the screenshot below.

The GL Impact is as below:

3) I have gone ahead and applied a 100% discount on the invoice.

The GL impact afterwards is as follows:

Why do i still have an entry on the VAT accounts? The assumption here is once i apply 100% discount, the only entry should be the cost of sale and inventory.

Howdy, Stranger!
