Tax Code Duplication for Additional Tax Impacts in the ECE Post Rating Hook (Doc ID 2101873.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 18, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Communications BRM - Elastic Charging Engine - Version 11.2.0.6.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Goal

As per the ECE Documentation and the Post rating hook sample, able to calculate and apply the multiple tax amount and able to create the multiple balance impacts for the event. But facing the following issues :

1. When creating the balance impact using the PostRatingExtensionContext function "addTaxRatingPeriod(int originalExtRPId, Integer balanceElementId, UnitValue impact,String glCode)", Customer is unable to add the TAX code for the newly calculated tax amount , as it is taking the existing TAX CODE which is as part of the Product configurations.

a. For eg:- Configured the TAX CODE as "VAT" and this is configured as event time taxation in the product and configured the TAX in the ECE "charging-setting.xml"
b. Passed the event for the account with product which has TAX CODE as VAT and the event got rated and taxed as per the configuration.
c. Added post rating extension to calculate the CST on top of VAT and able to create the balance impact using the above mentioned function.
d. But, when observe the balance impact array by reading the event, the second balance array for tax has TAX CODE as VAT instead of CST. Don't have any provision to update the TAX CODE as CST instead of VAT in the balance impact array in the ECE post rating extension.
