E-business Tax – A Purchasing Perspective
Ebusiness Tax provides a repository to store tax information and record tax events. Individual applications (for e.g. Purchasing) avails the tax services provided by Ebusiness Tax to create/update/display tax information for its transactions.
Purpose of creating this document is to review impact of Ebusiness Tax introduced in R12 to Oracle Purchasing. This document will help you in implementing tax solution in Purchasing using R12 Ebusiness Tax solutions. This document will also help you in understanding the integration and troubleshooting your tax setups in Oracle Purchasing.
In release 12 EBusiness Tax has been introduced to provide an improved Tax solution to customers. Ebusiness Tax provides a repository to store tax information and record tax events. Individual applications (for e.g. Purchasing) avails the tax services provided by Ebusiness Tax to create/update/display tax information for its transactions. The tax services that can be availed from Ebusiness Tax are listed below.
a. Define Tax Content b. Determine Tax c. Manage Tax d. Record Tax e. Report Tax f. Reconcile Tax
Architecture has been built considering country specific tax requirements and applicability of rules for determining taxes. Based on the tax laws of a specific country, the transaction tax rates may vary by jurisdictions, products or product category, how the product will be used, type of transacting parties, type of transactions, the place of supply etc. Various rules are applicable for determining the appropriate tax on a specific transaction.
E-business Tax – A Purchasing Perspective
The Tax Setups including rules are based on requirements used by the Tax Rules Engine, which will create/update Tax Lines. These lines are later reported using EBusiness Tax Reporting features. Figure below shows the e-business structure.

PRIOR TAX STRUCTURE
Prior to release 12, tax was defined in Accounts Payables module. Taxes were associated with rates, non-recoverable ratio and recovery rules. Country Specific tax requirements could not be incorporated seamlessly into the application.
Prior to release 12, tax was defined in Accounts Payables module. A tax component on the document total could be associated with the purchasing documents for portion of the tax which was non recoverable. Purchasing would default taxes based on hierarchy defined either in Oracle Payables (Setup > Options > Payables > Tax code defaults) or in Oracle Purchasing (Setup > Organization > Purchasing Options > Tax Default Alternate Region) if "Enforce Tax From Purchase Order" box in Payable Options (Setup > Options > Payables > Tax code defaults) was checked. Taxes were associated with rates, non-recoverable ratio and recovery rules. Taxes were then defined in at least one of the levels (also called the tax source) for e.g. Item, Supplier, Supplier Site, and Location etc. The order of defaulting was decided by the hierarchy defined in the Payables/Purchasing options discussed previously. Tax calculation was called on a Requisition/ Standard Purchase order or a Blanket release based on the hierarchy, recovery rules and rates. Tax calculation is performed using the AP Tax Engine, which was called from the distribution, or

PO/Requisition. Once the tax is defaulted and saved tax cannot be redefaulted even on changing the tax source in the document. It was possible to override the tax defaulted on Purchasing documents prior to receipt or prior to reservation on funds on the document incase of encumbrance accounting. To override tax we need to have the profile option Tax: Allow Override of Tax Code set to Yes. Profile "Tax: Allow Override of Recovery Rate" allows override of recovery rate if the values of this profile is set to "Yes". Due to complexity of the tax specifications based on country/product, Oracle used to provide certain country/product specific solutions for diverse tax related requirements. (For e.g. Latin Tax Engine in GTE, Brazil AP/PO Tax Engine, India R11i localizations) E-business tax design was completely new for release 12. Most of the features available in 11i have been accommodated in release 12 e-business tax. Following are some of the features that will not be available in release 12 e-business tax as compared the 11i features: 1. Tax Code is removed from the ‘Enter Purchase Order’ form. Instead tax classification field will be available in tax page available through ‘Manage Tax’ link. Users can no longer make a purchase order shipment nontaxable by removing the tax code from the PO shipment. Recovery Rate field at the distributions level will no longer be defaulted based on the Tax Code and will no longer display the default recovery rate of the transaction. Override of recovery rate will be subject to controls setup within e-business tax. User updated Tax Code on the requisition lines will no longer be carried over to the PO document during autocreate. The Tax Classification will always be re-defaulted on the PO document. Summarized tax information on purchase order has been eliminated. Only detailed tax line can be viewed on the purchase order. Tax Code cannot be populated through the purchase order Preferences form. Tax cannot be modified through AutoCreate requisition 'Modify' action, as the tax is re-defaulted on the PO regardless of the tax in the requisition. Detailed tax information based on tax classification will not be available in the requisition. For requisitions, users will only be able to view the tax amounts (total, recoverable and non-recoverable). Tax code has been removed from RFQs and Quotations form. Tax will be defaulted when a quotation is autocreated to a standard purchase order. PO documents cannot be reserved or submitted for approval if tax calculation error has occurred.

Therefore the following rule will be applied: If the ‘Intended Use’ of the item in purchase order is ‘Industrial Use’ then apply the recovery rate used in step 4 above. Export Sales User Defined Fiscal Classification: Used for defining transaction based on any other classifications from transaction other then the above mentioned. Transaction Business Category: To classify transactions based on the nature of business. a sample sale may invite a lower tax. For e. Tax Recovery Rate: < Defined in step 4> Create a purchase order with category ‘Office Supplies’. Value/From Range: <In our case ‘Industrial Use’> (Please note the value of the category segments are concatenated without delimiters therefore query this LOV with value of one of the segments and use the category description to choose the correct segment) c.g. Three Types of Transaction Fiscal Classification’ can be defined in e-business. Document Fiscal Classification: To classify based on the documents required / the type of documents used for the transaction.

This means that the tax regimes for migrated taxes will subscribe to party with ‘Operating Unit Owning the Tax Setup’ i. 1. a shortcut approach is used to calculate taxes based on the passed Tax Classification Code. migrates to EBusiness Tax as a tax classification code. To group all related taxes classifications under its related tax group. If tax codes are not part of any tax groups then there will be no Direct Rate Determination rule. The tax setup will be upgraded as partyspecific configuration owners. this article would discuss only impacts on purchasing perspective. The tax group will also be migrated as a tax classification. The tax was operating unit based. we will only be considering this release in our considerations for upgrade. This will be available as ‘Regime Determination Set’ on the configuration tax owner option for the ‘Operating Unit Owning Tax Content’. but will not have an associated regime to rate flow in e-business tax. In release 11i. You may define additional rules to determine taxes to be defaulted on a transaction. Also. Since the upgrade path for release 12 is only though 11i. a direct rate determination rule is created during migration that will be based on the tax classification code that has the same name as tax group code. E-business Tax – A Purchasing Perspective Page 41 . All other Regime Determination Templates must use location based determining factors. When the template is STCC. A new Regime Determination Template Standard Tax Classification Code (STCC) will be created during migration using determining factor of Tax Classification Code -which will indicate that the tax calculation would be based on the old Release 11i approach. 3.
Direct Rate Determination Rules for the defaulted tax classification code would determine the applicability of one or more taxes on a taxable line. It will then call ebusiness tax API's to calculate tax. appropriate tables in ebusiness tax is populated with tax details and the purchasing tables are updated to indicate taxable line. 3. COUNTY. Tax. 2. 1. taxes or jurisdictions. 9. For Location based taxes. The data from the global temporary tables will be deleted. CITY and POSTAL CODES as well as TAX ZONES to cover ZIP code ranges or groups of ZIP ranges with the same GEO code. Tax Registrations defined at HR locations or HR Organization levels in Release 11i are upgraded as Tax Registrations at Party Tax Profile for Legal Establishments. Supplier and supplier sites migrate to Trading Community Architecture (TCA) as TCA parties and party sites. Release 11i Purchasing and Payables defaulting hierarchy are upgraded to Application Tax Options for each OU separately for Purchasing and Payables respectively. DATA FLOW Following is the mechanism of calls to the ebusiness tax to calculate tax. 8. the upgrade will create a Tax Jurisdiction Rate with a percentage rate associated with the relevant tax Regime. E-business Tax – A Purchasing Perspective Page 42 . Tax Status (STANDARD) and Tax Jurisdiction. 6. The upgrade will automatically create Tax Jurisdictions for each Tax Zone within the context of a Regime and Tax. 5. Additional Release 12 functionality is available to define multiple registrations for the same party and different regimes. For more detailed impact please refer to the Oracle Applications Upgrade Guide: Release 11i to Release 12 and Oracle Financials and Oracle Procurement Functional Upgrade Guide: Release 11i to Release 12. 4. The current recovery rates will be upgraded as "primary" recovery rates with the Release 11i Accounting based recovery rules upgraded as Recovery Rate Rules.4. as well as the ability in Release 12 to define registration status that can be used in rules. For these parties. location values will be upgraded into the Trading Community Architecture (TCA) Geography model as legislative geography elements such as STATE. E-Business Tax includes the tax classification code field as part of the supplier or supplier site party tax profile.
