Oracle E-Business Tax Setup Prerequisites

Complete the setup tasks in the E-Business Suite applications that E-Business Tax uses for tax-related processes. These setup tasks include:

  • Legal Entities and Establishments – Set up legal entities and establishments to represent the first parties and tax authorities involved in your tax transactions.
  • Lookup Codes – Set up lookup codes for E-Business Tax lookup types.
  • Inventory Item Category Sets and Categories – Set up Inventory item categories for the items involved in your tax transactions. You associate Inventory item categories with product fiscal classifications to use in tax determination.

  • Tax Zones – Set up tax zones to group together geographical regions that share the same tax requirement.

Tax Configuration

Complete the E-Business Tax setup tasks to create a basic tax configuration for each of your tax regimes. A basic tax configuration contains the data applicable to the taxes belonging to a tax regime.

The tax configuration setup tasks are:

  • Tax Authority Party Tax Profiles – Set up a party tax profile for each tax authority involved in your transaction taxes.
  • Tax Regimes – Set up tax regimes in each country and geographical region where you do business and where a separate tax applies.
  • First Party Legal Entity Party Tax Profiles – Set up a party tax profile for each first party legal entity involved in your transaction taxes. When you first set up the party tax profile, set up configuration options for the tax regimes associated with the party.
    • Configuration Options – Set up configuration options to associate tax regimes with first parties.
    • Service Subscriptions and Exclusions – Where applicable, set up service subscriptions and service exclusions to use the tax services of external service providers for tax calculation.
  • Taxes – Set up a record for each of the taxes belonging to a tax regime.
  • Tax Reporting Codes – Set up tax reporting types and tax reporting codes to capture additional tax information on transactions for your tax reports, and apply them to the entities that you want to report on for each tax.

Where applicable, add tax reporting codes for the tax.

  • Tax Status – Set up the tax statuses for each tax.
  • Tax Jurisdictions – Set up tax jurisdictions for each tax to identify the geographical locations where the tax authority levies the tax.
  • Tax Recovery Rates – Set up tax recovery rates for each tax for full or partial recovery of taxes on transactions.
    • Tax Accounts – Where applicable, enter or update tax accounts for each tax recovery rate.
  • Tax Rates – Set up tax rates for each tax.
    • Tax Accounts – Where applicable, enter or update tax accounts for each tax rate.
    • Tax Reporting Codes – Where applicable, add tax reporting codes for each tax rate.

Fiscal Classification System

Complete the E-Business Tax setup tasks for fiscal classifications, if you intend to use fiscal classifications in the creation of tax rules for tax determination. Complete each setup task that applies.

  • Oracle Inventory – Set up Inventory-based product fiscal classification types using Oracle Inventory category sets. The product fiscal classification is defaulted on the transaction line for any item that belongs to the inventory category set.
    • Product Classification – Set up product fiscal classifications against an Inventory category set.
    • Product Intended use – Set up product intended use fiscal classifications against an Inventory category set when the intended use of the Inventory item is a factor either in tax determination or the tax recovery rate.
  • Non-Inventory – Set up non-Inventory-based product fiscal classification types using the E-Business Tax product category. You use the E-Business Tax product category if you do not use Oracle Inventory and for other special product classification needs.
    • Product Classification – Set up product fiscal classifications using the E-Business Tax product category. You can enter these product fiscal classification codes on a transaction line irrespective of the item.
    • Product Intended Use – Set up product intended use fiscal classifications using the E-Business Tax product category when the intended use of the product fiscal classification is a factor either in tax determination or the tax recovery rate.
  • Party Classification – Set up party fiscal classifications for your customers and customer sites and suppliers and supplier sites. You can also use the legal classification tax usage of legal activity codes according to your tax determination and tax reporting requirements.
  • Transaction Classification – Set up transaction fiscal classifications to classify transactions for tax determination and tax reporting purposes.
  • Transaction Business Categories – Set up a hierarchy of transaction fiscal classification codes under transaction business categories to identify specific transaction events.
  • Document Classification – Set up document fiscal classifications to classify transactions that require special documentation to accompany the transaction.
  • User Defined Transaction Classification – Set up user defined transaction fiscal classification codes to classify any tax requirement that you cannot define using the existing fiscal classification types.

Country Defaults

Set up country default controls to default tax registration information for the applicable tax regimes and taxes to legal establishment party tax profiles.

Tax Exceptions

Set up tax exceptions to apply special tax rates to products.

Tax Rules

Set up tax rules to manage the setup and execution of the E-Business Tax tax determination process for your tax regimes and taxes.

Complete First Party Legal Entity Party Tax Profile

Complete the party tax profile of the first party legal entity.

  • Party Classifications – If applicable, associate party fiscal classification codes with this party to use as determining factors in tax rules.
  • Tax Reporting Codes – If you associated tax reporting types with party tax profile, enter any applicable tax reporting codes.

First Party Legal Establishment Party Tax Profile

Complete the party tax profile for each legal establishment belonging to the first party legal entity.

  • Tax Registration – Set up tax registrations records for the first party legal establishment.
    • Tax Accounts – Where applicable, enter or update tax accounts for each tax registration.
    • Tax Reporting Codes – If you associated tax reporting types with tax registration, enter any applicable tax reporting codes.
  • Party Fiscal Classifications – If applicable, associate party fiscal classification codes with this party to use as determining factors in tax rules.
  • Tax Reporting Codes – If you associated tax reporting types with party tax profile, enter any applicable tax reporting codes.

Party Tax Profiles for Third Parties

Set up third party tax profiles for your customers and customer sites and suppliers and supplier sites.

Customers

    • Tax Registration – Set up tax registrations records for the customer.
    • Tax Exemption – Set up tax exemptions for the customer and customer sites.
    • Tax Reporting Codes – If you associated tax reporting types with tax registration, enter any applicable tax reporting codes.
  • Party Fiscal Classifications – If applicable, associate party fiscal classification codes with this party to use as determining factors in tax rules.
  • Tax Reporting Codes – If you associated tax reporting types with party tax profile, enter any applicable tax reporting codes.

Suppliers

  • Party Tax Profile Details – Set up a party tax profile for each supplier.
  • Party Fiscal Classifications – If applicable, associate party fiscal classification codes with this party to use as determining factors in tax rules.
  • Tax Reporting Codes – If you associated tax reporting types with party tax profile, enter any applicable tax reporting codes.

Configuration Owner Tax Options

Where applicable, set up configuration owner tax options for a combination of configuration owner and application event class.

Application Tax Options

Set up application tax options to update migrated tax setup or to create new tax setup based on the Release 11i defaulting hierarchy model. The defaulting hierarchy model defaults tax classification codes to transactions.

Note: You must complete additional setup tasks to use migrated tax data on transactions with E-Business Tax.

Make Tax Available on Transactions

After you complete your tax setup and verify that the tax setup behaves according to your requirements, you can enable each tax in the tax regime. Enabling a tax makes it available for use on transactions.

Simulate Transactions

After you complete your setup tasks, use the Tax Simulator to test the details of your tax configuration.

Using the Tax Configuration Region

After you complete tax setups, you can use the Tax Configuration region to display tax configuration data by country or by tax regime.

    hi,i have an issue regarding tax setup,how you setup the two tax rates bcz there is no concept of group tax in tax manager.for eg:
    i have an invoice amount RS1000 ,HOW we apply the two fed and sed tax automatically?so that the system calculate and make two lines of sed and sed in tax detail form..

    • Hello Yasir,

      If your tax design is based on tax classification code, then it will be difficult to achieve this, but not impossible. You can setup two (or more) taxes and tax rules that use the same field and generate different taxes on the same conditions.

      The idea is not about group taxes. Rather the design is as follows: You have factors and conditions based on those factors. The you determine rules for taxes that use these conditions to derive taxes. For example:
      Factor: Tax Classification Code (TCC)
      Condition: TCC = ‘Value X’

      Tax1
      Rule for Tax1: if TCC = ‘Value X’ then Tax Rate1 for Tax1 applies

      Tax2
      Rule for Tax2: if TCC = ‘Value X’ then Tax Rate2 for Tax2 applies.

      Now you can use multiple factors besides Tax Classification code if you don’t have a direct relation between tax1 and tax2. In the above scenario, since both taxes apply on the same scenario, both taxes will occur together. If you set the conditions and rules on two different factors (example party fiscal classification and product fiscal classification), then you can have one or both taxes apply depending on combination you use.

      Hope this helps.

    Hi while setting up EBS tax, I created a different regime from the one existing on the system (GB VAT) and also created another tax which means I have to create new rules to use. After completing the setup with the rules, transactions were still not able to generate the tax codes automatically which was resulting in an error. I therefore end dated the oracle configured GB VAT tax. Any idea on how to re enable it?

    I’m not sure exactly why but this website is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end? I’ll check
    back later and see if the problem still exists.

  4. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be at the web the simplest factor to have in mind of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed whilst other people think about concerns that they just
    do not know about. You controlled to hit the
    nail upon the highest as neatly as defined out the entire
    thing without having side effect , folks could take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
