 In Brazil, Quantity Base Tax is known as Pauta Fiscal.

It is a tax regime applied for several items types. In this regime, the tax amount or tax basis amount is defined by the Tax Authority.

 

Impacted taxes are:

 

Currently the items that are under Pauta Fiscal are:

 

The Pauta Fiscal is a known gap in the Brazil localization. The consulting companies have reusable consulting assets to attend this requirement.

As an example, this is the structure of a solution created by a consulting partner:

The company manufactures and sells products that have state fiscal rules. One
of these rules is the Fiscal Guideline. This rule is about a minimum fixed
value for the collection of the tax, independent of the value of the tax.
This fiscal guideline is applied by item and differs from State for State.

For example: The company sells rice and transfers rice to other units. The
state Government publishes in its site 
@ (www.sefaz.rs.gov.br/SEF_ROOT/SEF/SEF-Pautas-Geral.htm) the value of the
Fiscal Guideline for each item, in the case of the rice the Fiscal Guideline
for the pack is R$ 40,00.  This means that, if the company transfers the rice
to the unit in Rio Grande do Sul to São Paulo and the price of the pack is R$
30,00, the tax to be calculated in the invoice of sale will be on R$ 40,00.

In the Oracle customer configured the Codes and Taxes of Taxes but the system
is interpreting the value of R$ 40,00 as if it was a tax. 

Development stated on the tax BB that the way customer needs to set up for
the case described is to define an exception by item for that item. If the
selling price is 10 and the government's defined value is 40, you should
define the base rate as + 3- i.e., (40 - 10) / 10 = 3.  What will happen is
that the price + 3 * price will be the taxable basis. This kind of case is
also documented in the implementation manual for Brazil.

Please note that if the price charged changes, the base rate modifier needs
to change accordingly to meet the minimum taxable basis per single item."

Customer responded the solution from the developer won't work properly:
imagine that in one load I deliver two orders with the same item:

In one order the customer bought the item for R$10,00 in another the customer
bought the same item for R$ 10,50. In both of them the tax is R$0,12. In the
example proposed by the developer, the bases would be changed to both cases;
it would bring an illegal calculation.  How is Oracle addressing this issue?

 

This Fiscal issue describes that are special tax conditions for some group of goods, which is determined by each state government level. This legislation states that some products are subject of special minimum
taxation, in order to ensure the properly tax collection process around the Nation. This is the main reason why some states have defined this group (list of specific products) in order to make easy the taxation
audit itself.

In this way, it is recommended to deep study "Fiscal Classification" feature in Latin Tax Engine, that could give us support on how differentiate these products like conditions. Based on it, there are some aspects
described on the requirements phase for Latin Tax Engine (Nov, 2000) for Import Tax, which is not clear so far if is applicable for the current scenario. What is fact for Import tax, is the possibility to create
exceptions for ICMS and by this point, classify them how to work based on mininum amount of taxable item.

Below you can see an extract of this file:

*** Item 1.14.7.2 - Fixed tax amount ***
There are specific product fiscal classifications have a fixed Import tax amount. If these specific product fiscal classifications are applicable, this rule for determining the basis of taxation overrides all
other basis of taxation rules. The fixed amount can apply to a single unit of measure or a fixed specified quantity.

*** end of item 1.14.7.2 ***

Additionally you can see:

*** Item 1.14.6.2 Exceptions to the taxable base general rule
2. The government has defined a minimum taxable base that must be used for some specific product fiscal classifications. In these cases, the standard taxable base should be determined and then compared to the
minimum taxable base amount. If the determined taxable base is less than the minimum taxable base, the minimum taxable base should be used.
*** end of item 1.14.6.2

Based on these two items, it is higly recommended to expose this scenario for the respective PM of this product, in order to identify if these requirements:
1 - are applicable or not for this scenario and
2 - in case of YES - if it was classified like out of scope, must have or add value.
