How to Open and Close Tax calendars for the EMEA VAT Reporting ? (Doc ID 1613357.1)

Last updated on NOVEMBER 23, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Financials Common Country - Version 12.1.3 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


This question raises after we have read in the Financials for Europe U. g. page 6-4 :

« Define tax calendars in Oracle General Ledger to enable opening and closing of tax
periods independent of the accounting period. Use the Period Type window to
define tax period types and Accounting Calendar window to define the tax
calendar and the periods for the tax calendar. »


Customer said they defined a tax calendar type exactly like:
- inside Applications GL Responsibility
- In Calendar Types window you define a year type = Fiscal
- you create a calendar with type = Fiscal and insert the period on that calendar

Then they told they tried to perform it in the usual GL Open/Close periods and this window only seems to list / show Accounting Calendar types. They couldn't get in touch with 'tax' calendar periods to open or close them.

Where (what form) do we close the tax calendar periods exactly ?
