Receiving this error message when trying to create a Supplier:

This Tax Registration Number is already in use for Party Type: Third Party and party name: XXXXXX for the same period.


  1. The customer has a supplier 'XXXXXX'
  2. In Tax Details page, have a Tax Registration with registration number "EXEMPT" assigned.
  3. As per Oracle explanation, customer now needs to create a new Tax Registration in the context of a Tax Regime.
  4. They have attempted to delete the existing registration but the option is not available.
  5. While they can end-date the registration, an attempt to create a new Supplier with the same Tax Registration results in the above error.
