This article applies to Microsoft Dynamics AX for the Indian (in) region.

As per File Validation Utility (FVU) tool version 5.0, special characters are not allowed in the Deductor/Collector Name, Branch/Division and so on. New changes are incorporated for generation of the .txt file in the Indian version of Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R3, Microsoft Dynamics AX 2012 R2, and Microsoft Dynamics AX 2009 SP1, which make sure you can:

1. Remove special characters from Deductor/Collector Name if any.

2. Remove special characters from Branch/Division.

Special characters in Deductor/Collector name and Branch/Division may cause failure of txt file for FVU validation.

ii. TAN Name: In case, the TAN Name (for example, Name of Deductor/Collector) as per CSI file does not match with the name as per the TDS/TCS statement, FVU will generate a popup message "Name of Deductor in the statement should exactly match the Name of deductor as per TAN Master Database of Income Tax Department".
