EAP: Ship From State In Sales Tax Is Not Flowing Based On Address Seq No. Entered In The Voucher

(Doc ID 1900770.1)

Last updated on SEPTEMBER 15, 2016

Applies to:

PeopleSoft Enterprise FIN Payables - Version 9.1 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When create a voucher for a vendor with 2 addresses the Ship From comes from the default address

Vendor Address on Voucher must default from the Address Seq on Payables Link on Location tab of Vendor Master
Vendor Ship From Address must be defaulted from the Address Seq on Ordering Info on Procurement Link of Location tab of Vendor Master

Logic is as follows:

Order Info is the address where the order is placed on the vendor
Invoice Info is the address of vendor from where the invoice is raised on customer

Now, Sales Tax/ VAT is based on the Ship From address which is basically the Ordering Address and NOT the Invoicing Address.


Customer is located in Bangalore
Vendor Order Address (Factory) is located in Bangalore also.
Vendor raises the Invoice from Chennai Head Office

As goods are moving only from Bangalore, only the Order Address should be used to determine the Sales Tax Jurisdiction.
In reality, there should also have been an Address Seq for Ship From, but in it's absence, I guess that the Order Address Seq should serve as the Ship From state for Tax purposes.

Invoice may be raised centrally but the goods may be supplied from elsewhere. So, the Address for Tax purposes may be the one from where the goods move out.


The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:

  1. Create a voucher for a vendor with 2 addresses
  2. Check Ship From
