Last updated on JUNE 21, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Payables - Version 12.0.0 to 12.2.12 [Release 12.0 to 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The accounting for payments with discount is incorrect.

Steps to reproduce:

  1. Log into Oracle applications using a Payables responsibility.
  2. Open the Invoice Workbench
    (N) Invoices > Entry > Invoice
  3. Create an Invoice, for example, an amount of $1000, with a discount amount of $30
  4. Pay the invoice (per the example, paid amount should be $970 with the discount)
  5. Account the Invoice and Payment (Create Accounting Process)
  6. The proration is incorrectly show as CASH = $940 (970-30), when it should be $970
  7. As a result, the liability is debited by the 940 instead of 970
  8. In addition, if draft accounting is run (instead of Final Accounting), the Accounting does not complete properly (the posted_flag remains 'N' in the payment history table)
