Applies to:

Oracle Fusion Supplier Model - Version and later
Oracle Fusion Supplier Model Cloud Service - Version and later
Oracle Fusion Supplier Portal Cloud Service - Version to [Release 1.0]
Information in this document applies to any platform.


In EBS Release 12, user can setup duplicate taxpayer id by enabling profile "POS: Allow Suppliers with Duplicate Taxpayer ID"

Does Fusion have the same profile to enable duplicate taxpayer id?


Business Case:

It is an absolute necessity for customer to have the ability to input the same tax identification number for different vendor names. This is a very common practice for individuals (Sole proprietors) as well as companies in  which a parent company exists but operates under a number of DBA’s to report as a consolidated company under one tax ID number. If a company has more than one LEGAL name but report under one taxpayer ID number, than it will be necessary to pay the individual companies.


Individual/Sole Proprietor
Juliet M. Afusia DBA
Afusia Bookkeeping

Company (One Parent Company can have many DBAs)
Martin Enterprises DBA
Joe's Ugly Cars
Joe's Car Repair, etc.

Additionally, the various counties we deal with report the individual departments under one taxpayer ID.


County of Riverside
 Department of Health
 Department of Transportation
 Department of Education, etc.

The State can also have the same scenario.


State of California
 State Controller’s Office
 Franchise Tax Board
 Department of Motor Vehicles, etc.

The examples go on and on. A variety of hospitals (Loma Linda for example) and other public agencies make payments in this manner.  This situation is not exclusive to a specific customer and is a mandatory part of the payment process.
Without the ability to create these suppliers and assign the tax payer Id,  customer will not be able to capture 1099 related information and do 1099 reporting to IRS and provide 1099s to the payees.  Not reporting properly on 1099 and not adhering to IRS would be a major legal lapse and customer cannot be afford to have this.

Without this feature, Oracle Payables would be of no use.
