Troubleshooting: Gift Rule – Journal Entry not balance

From AutoCount Resource Center

Question: when I try to create a new Gift Rule transaction which is more than RM500, error message prompted ‘Journal Entry not balance’. Why?

Version: 1.8 / 1.9 / 2.0

Possible Reason:

You have pre-set a tax code (that charges GST) for GST on Gift Rule Account. This will cause the journal to be created not balance.


Remove the pre-set tax code for this account number.

Please check on GST Setting > Gift rule; to find out what is the assigned Debit Account No.

Then go to GL > Account maintenance,

Edit that defined Account No (in this case it is GST-9030), remove the default output tax code so that it becomes <<null>> as this default output tax code will calculate 6% and cause the journal entry not balanced.

Create new Gift Rule transaction and it should be working fine now.
