Oracle R12 eBTax – Patch to drive Place of Supply rule from POO (Point of Origin) or POA (Point of Acceptance)

Oracle eBTax POS rules Options

Place of Supply (POS) options for Tax Rules

Finally, Oracle have released a patch that allows the place of supply to be driven from the point of origin (POO) or the point of acceptance.

Previously only the ‘ship from’, the ‘ship to’, ‘bill from’ or ‘bill to’ even thought he POA and POO were options, they simply did not do anything.

This has now been resolved with the following patch

Patch 19077918:R12.ZX.B

for UNABLE TO CALCULATE THE TAX IN CASE THE PLACE OF SUPPLY IS SET TO POINT OF ACCEPTANCE / ORIGIN

 

So why is this so important? firstly it gives more opportunity, to be able to drive the correct tax regime particularly when you have a situation when the country the tax is needed for is not a ship from/to or bill from/to. So whether the POO or the POA is actually set up as a POO or POA or you are just using the fields to help drive the tax, this patch will help resolve several scenarios that simply were not possible before.
