E-Business Tax Issue: You Cannot Assign the Same VAT Number to Customers that are Assigned to Suppliers (Doc ID 1516410.1)

Last updated on APRIL 18, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle E-Business Tax - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


There cases where companies that are set up as Suppliers are also setup as Customers, because they do business as both Payables and Receivables.

If the VAT Number is already assigned to the Supplier record, you can not add their VAT Number to their Customer record in Receivables.  You receive the following error:

This tax registration number is already in use for party type: Third Party and party name: WPG Uitgevers België NV - Algemeen & Import for the same period.
