Troubleshooting: GST- set GST Date for past invoice

Question: I have submitted GST Return for taxable period of December 2016. After that I received a supplier's invoice dated 11/12/2016; when creating the Purchase Invoice, system does not allow to save?

Version: 1.8 / 1.9 / 2.0

Possible Reason:

As the GST Return is submitted, system will not allow any past invoice to be inserted into that tax period. This is to avoid changes that will affect the reported GST amount.


Use the feature of Set GST Date, claim the input tax of this late document in the coming GST period. When creating new Purchase Invoice, before saving the entry, go to Edit > Set GST Date:
