Singapore IR8A Magtape is Showing the Wrong Nationalities for Some Employees (Doc ID 302778.1)

Last updated on JULY 26, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle HRMS (Singapore) - Version 11.5.10 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


The IR8A magtape generated by the IR8A File process is showing the wrong Nationalities for some employees.

The Nationality of these employees are being derived from the field

Passport Country of Issue (N-> People -> Enter and Maintain -> Passport tab) instead of the field Nationality (N-> People -> Enter and Maintain -> Personal tab) in the People form.

The IR8A File is submitted via the Standard Request Submission using the Singapore HRMS responsibility. The magtape being produced is submitted to the Inland Revenue Authority of Singapore (IRAS) as part of the End of Year process for Singapore.

This issue should be fixed to avoid manually correcting the magtape file to show the correct nationality of the employees.
