Tax Configuration: Create Tax

Posted by shameemakhtar on October 3, 2009


Platform: R12

Tax Manager –> Tax Configuration –> Taxes

A tax is defined under a tax regime. You need to define a tax regime before you define your tax.

Refer to document ‘Create Tax Regimes’.

Create Tax

Click on ‘Create’.

Main Information

Configure the Tax.

Select the previously defie tax regime code. For your tax to work, define it for party type ‘Operating Unit Owning Tax Content’ in the Configuration Owner.

You may choose to create the new tax from scratch or based on an existing tax (whereby some settings will be defaulted).

If you have localized taxes based on geography, then the need to define your tax zones before.Configure your tax at the appropriate geography type (country, state, city, region etc…). If you are not using tax zones, set your taxes at country level.

You may decide to configure Exchange rate at this level.

You can also set the Reporting Tax Authority and Collecting Tax Authority.

Controls and Defaults

Check the ‘Allow Entry of Manual Tax Lines’ if you intend to allow user to manually input tax lines on invoices. To be able to check that option, you must however check the ‘Allow Overide and Entry of Inclusive Tax Lines’ option also.

In our scenario we will not allow user to manually create tax lines nor will we allow them to override calculated tax lines.

Tax Account Controls

Tax Exeptions/Exemptions Control

Tax Recovery Controls

If you are defining recoverable taxes, then you need to check the ‘Allow Tax Recovery’ option. Along with rate for tax, you will also need to define tax recovery rate.

In our scenario, taxes are not recoverable. However we have defined them as recoverable and set the recovery rate as 0.

Defaults

Tax Reporting Codes

In some countries, you may have specific tax recording requirements. Configure this section if that is the case.
