 ENHANCEMENT REQUEST DESCRIPTION
===============================
When discarding line in matched AP invoice, the associated GST/RCM tax should
be also discarded.

Currently, when discarding a line in a AP invoice, the GST/RCM tax amount is
not reduced to 0.

BUSINESS NEED
=============
1. Describe how the current product is insufficient.
Discarding of invoice lines is not reducing GST/RCM tax amount to 0.

2. Provide a detailed description of the Enhancement Request.
When discarding line in AP invoice, the associated GST/RCM tax should be also
discarded.
Discarding is a process frequently used by users and for this reason, the
discarding of lines in GST invoices should be fixed.

3. If possible, identify how the product can be changed to achieve the
desired result.
Change discarding functionality so that when a line is discarded in invoice,
check if GST/RCM taxes are attached to that line. If yes, then the tax amount
should be set to 0 (zero).

4. Explain why Oracle Development should consider the Enhancement Request.
Discard of invoice lines is a standard functionality and it should work also
for RCM/GST invoices and in this way the behavior of discarding will be
consistent in EBS application.

5. Describe how this Enhancement will benefit the Customers business.
This ER will help to avoid data corruptions in customer environment, because
if RCM amount is not reduced to 0, then this amount will flow also in GL.

6. Is this Enhancement affecting an implementation milestone?
Customer is already in Production.

7. Please provide and describe the business flow that is affected by this
Enhancement.

Business flow of customer includes the creation of PO matched invoices with
RCM taxes and after matching the invoice, users are discarding lines
according to the business need. If the line has a RCM tax, then the RCM tax
amount is not reduced to zero when checking the India Tax Details.
Moreover, in GL the RCM taxes are transferred even if users discarded lines
associated to them.
A consequence of this is unbalanced journals and also wrong tax reporting.
