What is the Functional Significance of Item Categories For India Localizations (Doc ID 1946769.1)

Last updated on JANUARY 12, 2021

Applies to:

Oracle Financials for India - Version 12.1.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When we are defining Item Categories related to the Tax Setup in the India Localizations we are required to select an Organization. We are thinking that if we had say 5 Organizations in the India Operating Unit it was necessary to setup Item Categories in each of the 5 organizations. However when the Item Category is assigned to the customer in the Customer Additional Information form,  the L is based on all the Item Categories that have been defined regardless of which Organization was selected when we defined the Item Category.

Based on this our thinking is now that the Organization that is selected when the Item Category is defined really serves no purpose and if this is the case we could simply select the Validation Organization for the India Operating Unit and define all our Item Categories against this single Validation Organization.

Our question is can we define all our Item Categories for India related to the Tax Setups against the Validation Organization and then have our items assigned to the Item Categories against this Validation Organization without any impact of the functionality in other modules such as Order Management.

Please clarify.
