Wrong Debit and Credit account numbers show in Cash Receipt Journal Summary when gift tax claim eligible (UK only)

When including the debit and credit account numbers in the Cash Receipt Journal Summary, the wrong account numbers show for gifts that are tax claim eligible.
We are currently evaluating this issue and will update this article when we have more information. In the meantime, see How to report on the GL Distribution account numbers.

Steps to Duplicate

  1. Open a fund record and added debit and credit account numbers on the NL distribution tab - eg 1001 for the gift type Cash and 9999 for the gift type Tax Claim.
  2. Add a cash gift to a constituent who does not have a Gift Aid Declaration via the Declaration Information button on the Bio 1 screen.  Select the Fund with the NL distribution setup in step 1.
  3. Add a cash gift for the same fund to another constituent who does have a Gift Aid Declaration and when the gift is saved, ensure that the Tax claim number field is visible and blank on the Tax tab of the gift.  This means that the gift is tax claim eligible and, as the claim number field is blank, it means tax has not yet been claimed.
  4. Run the cash receipt journal via Reports > Financial Report so that the date range includes both these gifts.  Select Report type summary and in Format > Details select the option to include NL account numbers in summaries
  5. When the report is run the debit and credit account numbers for the 1st gift (not eligible) show as 1001.  However, the debit and credit account numbers for the tax claim eligible 2nd gift show incorrectly as 9999.
