Goal

How can we add asset to a TAX book but have these not effectuated in the CORP book?

For a number of European countries we have a requirement maintain local GAAP books which are to be setup as Asset Tax Books.

There is a statutory requirement to capitalize all assets with a cost of e.g. €400 and above in the local GAAP books, however purchases under €1000 must be expensed according to corporate policy. Therefore assets between €400 and €1000 must be added to the tax book but not to the corporate book. Our understanding is that assets cannot be added to a tax book (Local GAAP book) without being added to a corporate book first. How does Oracle address this requirement and is there an advised workaround.
