Last updated on AUGUST 04, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle Payables - Version 12.0.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Payables Open Interface Import program is not creating a tax line even thought the column calc_tax_during_import_flag is set 'Y'.

The log file for Payables Open Interface Import with parameter Debug = Yes shows the following errors:

-------------------------------------
(Import_invoice 15.8a) Call calculate tax
ap_etax_pkg.calling_etax(CALCULATE IMPORT)<-Import_invoices<- Before Report Trigger
The system cannot prorate the line level control tax amount because there is no
applicable tax for this transaction line. Please contact your tax manager.
-------------------------------------

Also, when entering an invoice with the same information(vendor/site/tax code) on Invoice Workbench, the tax did not get calculated as expected. After providing necessary information on Invoice Workbench and clicking on Calculate Tax, no changes occur.

This issue happens for a particular site which was created recently.
