The VAT for the prepayment deduction is calculated incorrectly in the Swiss version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV with the "Date Sensitive VAT Rate tool" installed

This article applies to Microsoft Dynamics NAV for the following countries and language locales.

  • French (Switzerland) (fr-ch)

  • German (Switzerland) (gr-ch)

  • Italian (Switzerland) (it-ch)

Symptoms

In the Swiss version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV with the "Swiss Date Sensitive VAT Rate tool" installed, the VAT is calculated for the prepayment deduction incorrectly when the old VAT rate and the new VAT rate have to be considered. For example, consider the following scenario:

  • You set the VAT value in the VAT posting setup.

  • You post a prepayment invoice for a sales order.

  • You post the payment for the posted prepayment invoice.

  • You change the Shipment Date / Expected Receipt Date in the sales order line and then post the sales order.

  • You check the VAT entry for the sales order in General Ledger.

In this scenario, Microsoft Dynamics NAV calculates the VAT amount by using the new VAT rate for the deduction of the prepayment incorrectly. Therefore, the VAT amount is incorrect. You expect the VAT for the prepayment deduction to be calculated by using the old VAT rate.
This problem occurs in the following products:

  • The Swiss version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 2009 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

  • The Swiss version of Microsoft Dynamics NAV 5.0 Service Pack 1 (SP1)

Code changes

Note Always test code fixes in a controlled environment before you apply the fixes to your production computers.
To resolve this problem, follow these steps:

  1. Change the code in the Prepayment % - OnValidate function in the Sales Line table (37) as follows:
    Exsiting code

    ...
    VATPostingSetup.GET("VAT Bus. Posting Group",GLAcc."VAT Prod. Posting Group");
    END ELSE
    CLEAR(VATPostingSetup);
    "Prepayment VAT %" := VATPostingSetup.GetVATPercent("Shipment Date",SalesHeader."Posting Date");
    "Prepmt. VAT Calc. Type" := VATPostingSetup."VAT Calculation Type";
    "Prepayment VAT Identifier" := VATPostingSetup.GetVATIdentifier("Shipment Date",SalesHeader."Posting Date");
    CASE "Prepmt. VAT Calc. Type" OF
    "VAT Calculation Type"::"Reverse Charge VAT",
    ...

    Replacement code

    ...
    VATPostingSetup.GET("VAT Bus. Posting Group",GLAcc."VAT Prod. Posting Group");
    END ELSE
    CLEAR(VATPostingSetup);
    IF "Prepmt. Amt. Inv." = 0 THEN BEGIN
    "Prepayment VAT %" := VATPostingSetup.GetVATPercent("Shipment Date",SalesHeader."Posting Date");
    "Prepmt. VAT Calc. Type" := VATPostingSetup."VAT Calculation Type";
    "Prepayment VAT Identifier" := VATPostingSetup.GetVATIdentifier("Shipment Date",SalesHeader."Posting Date");
    END;
    CASE "Prepmt. VAT Calc. Type" OF
    "VAT Calculation Type"::"Reverse Charge VAT",
    ...
  2. Change the code in the Prepayment % - OnValidate function in the Purchase Linetable (39) as follows:
    Exsiting code

    ...
    VATPostingSetup.GET("VAT Bus. Posting Group",GLAcc."VAT Prod. Posting Group");
    END ELSE
    CLEAR(VATPostingSetup);
    "Prepayment VAT %" := VATPostingSetup.GetVATPercent("Expected Receipt Date",PurchHeader."Posting Date");
    "Prepmt. VAT Calc. Type" := VATPostingSetup."VAT Calculation Type";
    "Prepayment VAT Identifier" := VATPostingSetup.GetVATIdentifier("Expected Receipt Date",PurchHeader."Posting Date");
    CASE "Prepmt. VAT Calc. Type" OF
    "VAT Calculation Type"::"Reverse Charge VAT",
    ...

    Replacement code

    ...
    VATPostingSetup.GET("VAT Bus. Posting Group",GLAcc."VAT Prod. Posting Group");
    END ELSE
    CLEAR(VATPostingSetup);
    IF "Prepmt. Amt. Inv." = 0 THEN BEGIN
    "Prepayment VAT %" := VATPostingSetup.GetVATPercent("Expected Receipt Date",PurchHeader."Posting Date");
    "Prepmt. VAT Calc. Type" := VATPostingSetup."VAT Calculation Type";
    "Prepayment VAT Identifier" := VATPostingSetup.GetVATIdentifier("Expected Receipt Date",PurchHeader."Posting Date");
    END;
    CASE "Prepmt. VAT Calc. Type" OF
    "VAT Calculation Type"::"Reverse Charge VAT",
    ...
