Amount Remaining Gets Corrupted when Invoice with AWT at Payment Time is Paid

(Doc ID 465368.1)

Applies to:

Oracle Payables - Version:
This problem can occur on any platform.


-- Problem Statement:
On in Production:
When an invoice subject to AWT at Payment Time is paid, the amount_remaining  gets calculated incorrectly.  If the payment is Voided and the invoice paid again, that subsequent payment amount and AWT amount are less than the original amounts. Any subsequent Void and repayment cycles result in the same underpayment condition.

Expect that the Amount Remaining on the Scheduled Payment will be correct when the invoice is initially paid, and will revert to to the original value at the moment the original payment is reversed.

-- Steps To Reproduce:
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:
1. Create a payment to a invoice with withholding tax at Payment Time.
2. Notice that the Amount Remaining is incorrect even though the payment amount and AWT amount are incorrect, so Void the payment.
3. Create a new payment to the same invoice.
4. Notice that the new payment amount and AWT amount are both less than the original values.

-- Business Impact:
The issue has the following business impact:
This condition effectively makes the payable invoice amount less by an amount equal to the original witholding tax calculation. So the amount payable is less, which is not acceptable.
