R12: AP/XLA: Subledger Accounting Setup Behaves Differently For Recoverable Vs Non Recoverable Tax Line

(Doc ID 2066203.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 11, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Payables - Version 12.0.0 and later
Oracle Subledger Accounting - Version 12.0.0 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

Despite having the exact same Subledger Accounting (SLA) setup in place for both Recoverable and Non-Recoverable Tax lines in the Accounts Payables (AP) SLA, the balancing segment, and thus the entire account that's derived for the Recoverable and Non-Recoverable Tax accounts differ for the AP invoice.

Actual behaviour
For the invoice in issue:
- Non-Recoverable Tax account is with balancing segment &bsv1
- Accrual account is with balancing segment &bsv2
- Liability account is with balancing segments &bsv1 (one row) and &bsv2 (two rows)
- Recoverable Tax account is with balancing segment &bsv2

Expectation
That the Non-Recoverable Tax account should be with balancing segment &bsv2 i.e. the same as the Recoverable Tax account.

Steps to reproduce
The issue was reproduced with the following steps:
1. The Payables SLA is having the same account derivation rule for Journal Line Type 'Recoverable Tax' and 'Non-Recoverable Tax'.
2. Create the PO-matched invoice, run accounting.
3. View the accounting lines and note the symptoms as above.

Business Impact
Planned Go-live.
