Amount Authorization for Customers/Vendors Problem
FB70: No Amount Authorization for Customers/Vendors in Company Code 4300

Message number F5155

No amount authorization for customers/vendors in company code.

Diagnosis: No amount authorization for customer/vendor line items has been specified in company code TPL1 for the user group to which you are assigned.

Provided that you are not explicitly assigned to a user group, the amount authorization to the group blank ( ) is valid.

Procedure: If you entered the correct company code, initiate the maintenance of tables T043 (user groups) and/or T043T (company code authorizations).

Define customer vendor tolerances

Open the transaction code OBA3 define tolerances, also accessible via SPRO customizing transaction under  Financial Accounting ‌  > accounts receivable and accounts payable > business transactions > outgoing payments > manual outgoing payments > define tolerances (vendors).

Here, if there is no tolerance defined for the given company code and tolerance group that is needed for the invoice creation, click on new entries to create a new tolerance for a customer or a vendor.

New tolerance entry

In the transaction OBA3, it is important to enter the right company code, and to put percentages for permitted payment differences.

This will allow to create an invoice in which amounts are different of that tolerance, in case the invoiced amounts are not exactly correct.

Entering a tolerance group is most likely not needed, as it can even lead to some errors later on.

After saving the newly entered tolerance, a customizing request will be required by the system in order to register the tolerance.

The tolerance should then properly be saved, and the currency should have been automatically retrieved by the system, based on the company code settings.

No amount tolerance range entered for company code

In case no amount tolerance has been entered, go to transaction OBA3, and create a new tolerance for the company code that faces the issue.

The tolerance should not have a tolerance group defined, as this might cause troubles.

However, the permitted payment differences percentage must be filled.
