Active Encumbrance Amount Considers the Tax of the Invoiced Amount (Doc ID 2968940.1)

Last updated on OCTOBER 04, 2023

Applies to:

Oracle Purchasing - Version 12.2.12 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Using Purchasing, when using encumbrance, according to <> R12: AP/PO: How to Troubleshoot Active Encumbrance on Finally Closed/Canceled POs in Payables, the formula for the active encumbrance amount does not take taxes into account:
Encumbered amount = (PO quantity * PO unit price * Currency rate) + (Non Recoverable Tax * Currency rate)
Active Encumbrance = Encumbered amounts - Reversals
It can be seen in version 12.2.12 that Purchase Orders, during a partial or total receipt, that Active Encumbrance Amount considers the tax of the invoiced amount, after accounting the invoice. In addition, Amount Billed doesn’t considers the tax.

1. Login to the E-Business Suite and choose the Purchasing Module.
2. Create and invoice Purchase orders in both 12.2.9 and 12.2.12 - both PO's have tax
3. In 12.2.12, there is still active encumbrance - but in 12.2.9, there is not, using same data for both
