Will Having Both Primary And Alternative Names Defined In Geography Hierarchy Have an Impacy On Taxes? (Doc ID 2685841.1)

Last updated on JUNE 29, 2020

Applies to:

Oracle Fusion Tax Cloud Service - Version and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Current Geography Hierarchy configuration contains Primary as well as Alternative Names. Accordingly, locations and addresses can be created with either the primary or the alternate name.

Will this this can have an impact when setting up taxes? Does leaving the dual format in place break Fusion tax functionality, or double-up tax configuration if you have different rules at the province level?



This primary/alternative configuration is present at the Province level, which is used in GST/HST in Canada, which is province-based.


Steps to Reproduce:

1. Go to Manage Geographies and check the hierarchy for Canada.
2. Look at the Province setup
