An Invoice With AWT Is Placed On 'AWT Tax Inactive' Hold, Even Though An Active AWT Tax Code With Higher Rank Exists
Last updated on SEPTEMBER 09, 2016
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.
1 - Create AWT tax group 'DOT_WH_TAX'. This consists of four tax codes; three of these are inactive (ranked 2: code 'DOT_AWT'; rank 3: code 'DOT_AWT2'; rank 4: code 'DOT_WH_TAX'), leaving one active (ranked 1: code 'AWT_RNR')
2 - Set up Withholding Tax on the Payables Options as below:
(a) Apply Withholding Tax At Invoice Validation Time
(b) Create Withholding Tax At Invoice Validation Time
(c) Withholding Date Basis is Invoice Date
(d) Tax Group = 'DOT_WH_TAX'
1 - Create an AP invoice. The AWT tax group 'DOT_WH_TAX' is stamped in the Invoice Withholding Tax field on the Lines tab.
2 - But when validating the invoice, nothing happens. Instead, a hold is applied on the invoice:
Lookup code : AWT ERROR
Hold reason : AWT Tax Inactive - Tax DOT_AWT Group DOT_WH_TAX
In looking at the hold, it appears the AWT tax code being assessed is the AWT code 'DOT_AWT', which is (a) inactive, and (b) ranked 2, i.e. lower than the active AWT code 'AWT_RNR'.
