Can Tax Validation Be By-Passed When Geography Hierarchy is in Use?
Last updated on FEBRUARY 01, 2017
Applies to:Oracle E-Business Tax - Version 12.1.3 and later
Oracle Release Management - Version 12.2.4 to 12.2.4 [Release 12.2]
Information in this document applies to any platform.
There are 2 kinds of customers populated in your system.
1. Canadian Operating Unit with correct addresses that fulfill validation of Geography Hierarchy - Tax Validation.
2. Different Countries, where tax is VAT based. Canadian addresses are either not populated or with wrong values.
For example, one legacy source does not have the value of Province, so it is sending province value in STATE field.
By disabling the Geography Validation, it is possible to import the customers.
But, at the transaction entry, address validation is fired for tax usage and error:
System cannot determine geographical information for this location and cannot derive a tax jurisdiction
Is it possible to have Geography Hierarchy - Tax Validation working only for the first type of Canadian customers?
