Last updated on MARCH 17, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Payables - Version 12.0.0 to 12.1.3 [Release 12.0 to 12.1]
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Please review the information Center for other EBTax articles. E-Business Tax (EBTax) Information Center > Note 1383309.1

After updating the EBTax setup, tax is not calculated automatically.
Expected behavior: tax calculated automatically after the new setup

The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

1. Responsibility: Oracle Payables
       EBTax regime has been setup and tax is enabled for transactions..
       Config Owner Tax Options for AP standard invoice have been changed so
       Regime Determination Set = Determine Applicable Regimes.
       OU is subscribed to the regime.
       In fact, taxes from this regime are being assessed in AR, so the regime is at least nominally set up to work correctly.
       The tax rules are set up to be based on the Tax Classification Code entered in the AP invoice (inherited from the supplier).
2. Path: Invoices -> Enter -> Invoices
3. Create an invoice and save.
4. Select the Calculate Tax button -> No tax is calculated.
5. Validate the invoice -> No tax is calculated -> The invoice is placed on hold.

Workaround: create a manual tax line.
