This error occurs when an Intercompany Payable account is the default setting in the Default Payable Account field in the NetSuite subsidiary preferences and the option for Accounting Approval is enabled for Expense Reports. To make sure that the correct payable account is active, you need to set the Default Payable Account for Expense Reports on each subsidiary in NetSuite.
- Navigate to Setup > Company > Subsidiaries
- Click Edit for the desired subsidiary
- Click on the Preferences tab
- Choose a preferred account for Default Payable Account for Expense Reports
