Fixed Deals Overriding The Pre-defined VAT Code By Validating VAT Region Between Supplier And Loc (Doc ID 2899139.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 21, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Retail Merchandising System - Version 16.0.3 and later
Oracle Retail Invoice Matching - Version 16.0.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When a merchandising fixed deal is setup in the RMS screens, the user has the ability to set it as VAT inclusive and define the VAT code that they require to be applied to this deal. Upon saving the deal in the RMS screen ('Save' button), a validation is executed that compares the VAT region from the deal's location and supplier (not the supplier site). If these VAT regions differ then the VAT code gets override with 'Z' for zero tax rate which prevents this deal from generating the due VAT amount on the CNR/CN.

The VAT region comparison should be done against the supplier site and not the supplier, as the charge back will be done at the supplier site.

Steps to recreate;

1- Access RMS screen to create a new merch fixed deal
2- Select a supplier that belongs to a certain VAT region (e.g. A) and a location that belongs to a different VAT region (e.g. B) where there is a supplier site that also belong to VAT region B
3- Set the deal as VAT inclusive
4- Select the applicable VAT code for the location's/supplier site region
5- Click 'Save and Close'
6- Open the deal and confirm the VAT code has changed to 'Z'
