Error "Please Enter A Valid Taxpayer Id" When Entering Spanish Or Italian Supplier Even If Taxpayer ID is Null (Doc ID 1275448.1)

Last updated on FEBRUARY 17, 2019

Applies to:

Oracle Financials for EMEA - Version 12.1.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When attempting to enter a supplier from Spain or Italy and not enter the taxpayer ID,
the following error occurs.

"The Taxpayer ID you have entered does not conform to the format requirements for the country you have specified. Please enter a valid Taxpayer ID."

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Enter new supplier
Organization Name = <Organization Name>
Country of Origin = Spain
2. Apply
Result: error appears

Expected behavior: Sometimes the taxpayer ID is not available. However we always want to be able to register a supplier even when the taxpayer ID is not available. Want to be able to enter a supplier without a taxpayer ID

Validation should be fired off when a taxpayer ID is entered

Workaround Initially enter another country of Origin. After application change the country
