Oracle General Ledger

Inflation Adjustment Overview

In Argentina, companies report both historical balances and inflation-adjusted balances. You can maintain both balances by keeping your historical balances in one ledger and your inflation-adjusted balances in another ledger. Follow the prerequisite steps for the historical/adjusted option described in the Common Country Features chapter.

Using Inflation Adjustment Based on a Price Index

Example for adjusting balances based on a price index

This example shows how the inflation rates and adjustment amounts are calculated to adjust account balances based on a price index. This table shows the price index values for the example.

Period Price Index Value
November 100
December 101.1
January 102.5
February 103.4
March 106
April 108.7

The correction factors for the inflation rates are calculated with a precision of six decimal positions. The calculations are based on this formula:

Correction Factor = (Index Value for Last Month of Period Range / Index Value for First Month of Period Range) - 1

This table shows the correction factors for the different period ranges.

Period Range Correction Factor (Inflation Rate)
December-April 0.075173
January-April 0.060488
February-April 0.051257
March-April 0.025472

Assume that the period-to-date and to-date balances of the Goodwill account have the values in this table for the periods December 2001 through March 2002:

Balances December January February March
Period-to-Date   20,000 30,000 40,000
To-Date 10,000 30,000 60,000 100,000

Note: Period-to-date balances do not include the balance at the beginning of the period; they only include activity within the period. The period-to-date balance for a period can be calculated by subtracting the balance at the beginning of the period from the balance at the end of the period.

The inflation adjustment amount for the periods January through April is calculated as:

April Adjustment =

(Previous Year Final Balance * December-April Correction Factor) +

(January Period-to-Date Balance * January-April Correction Factor) +

(February Period-to-Date Balance * February-April Correction Factor) +

(March Period-to-Date Balance * March-April Correction Factor) =

(10,000 * 0.075173) +

(20,000 * 0.060488) +

(30,000 * 0.051257) +

(40,000 * 0.025472) =

4,518.08

This table shows the journal entry that adjusts the Goodwill account for inflation:

Accounts Debit Credit
Goodwill 4,518.08  
     REI Account   4,518.08

Using the Inflation Adjustment Date

The Inflation Adjustment Date (Fecha Valor) feature lets you adjust a journal entry for a period that is before the effective date. For example, you can enter a journal entry for June and adjust the journal entry for a period that starts in January.

Note: If you enter an inflation adjustment date that is after the journal entry effective date, General Ledger does not use that inflation adjustment date. Instead, the inflation adjustment is calculated based on the journal entry effective date.

To use the Inflation Adjustment Date feature, you must define the ledger where you will run the inflation adjustment process as an MRC primary ledger, even if you do not use the MRC feature in General Ledger. You can classify a ledger as primary in the Multiple Reporting Currencies tabbed region in the Ledger window.

Use the Change Currency window to enter the inflation adjustment date. You can navigate to the Change Currency window by pressing the Change Currency button in the Journals window. Enter the inflation adjustment date in the To Date field.

General Ledger only adjusts the lines with accounting flexfield combinations that fall within the account ranges you specified when you submitted the inflation adjustment process.

Example for using the inflation adjustment date

This example shows how the journal entry lines are adjusted for inflation according to the inflation adjustment date. This table shows the price index values for the example.

Period Price Index Value
January 120
February 150
March 170
April 190
May 205

This table shows Journal Entry 1, which is effective on March 14. Assume that the current month is April. Only the Franchise Initial Fee account and the Capital account are within the specified account ranges:

Accounts Debit Credit
Franchise Initial Fee 100  
Cash 250  
     Accounts Payable   50
     Capital   300

Case 1 – Adjust Journal Entry 1 as shown in this table for inflation with the same effective and inflation adjustment dates. The inflation adjustment is calculated from the effective date.

Correction Factor = (Index Value for Last Month of Period Range / Index Value for First Month of Period Range) - 1

Correction Factor March-April = (190 / 170) - 1 = 0.1176

Accounts Debit Credit
Franchise Initial Fee 11.76  
REI Account 23.52  
     Capital   35.28

Case 2 – Adjust Journal Entry 1 as shown in this table for inflation with the inflation adjustment date set to February 10. The inflation adjustment is calculated from the inflation adjustment date.

Correction Factor February-April = (190 / 150) - 1 = 0.2666

Accounts Debit Credit
Franchise Initial Fee 26.67  
REI Account 53.31  
     Capital   79.98

Oracle Payables

Withholding Tax in Argentina

In Argentina, customers who are withholding agents are responsible for withheld taxes from supplier invoices, when the supplier is subject to tax withholding and is not exempted by the tax authority. The customer pays the supplier invoice net the withheld amount, issues a withholding certificate for the withheld amount, and remits the tax withheld to the proper tax authority.

The main federal and provincial taxes and contributions that have a withholding regime in Argentina are:

The calculation method (both the withholding basis and the rate used) differs by tax withholding type, by withholding category, and by province.

Withholding is calculated when you pay an invoice. The taxable base amount for VAT withholding is per invoice; the taxable base amount for all other withholdings is per payment.

As a withholding agent, you send payment documents with remittance advice to the appropriate tax authorities, and send detailed withholding certificates to suppliers.

Note: Oracle Payables for Argentina does not create offsetting accounting entries for withholding tax.

Note: The Oracle Payables for Argentina withholding tax solution, which is an extension of the Oracle Payables Automatic Withholding Tax functionality, has its own setup and does not require the use of withholding tax groups.

Income Tax Withholding

Income tax, a federal tax that individuals and legal entities pay for income obtained during the year, is withheld by the customer on behalf of a supplier and remitted directly to the proper tax authorities. Income taxes are withheld when the customer is an income tax withholding agent and the supplier is subject to income tax withholding and is not a withholding agent.

You must currently calculate income tax withholding for supplier invoices, debit memos, and credit memos. There are currently four different methods of income tax withholding calculation, three for domestic suppliers and one for foreign suppliers:

The calculation method for domestic suppliers depends on the category of goods or services in the invoice. Each calculation method has one or more withholding rates associated with it.

Domestic suppliers usually have two different withholding rates for each category based on the supplier tax registration status. You usually have a rate for registered suppliers and a different rate for nonregistered ones.

Income tax withholding has these characteristics:

Domestic suppliers: leases, regalias, goods and services

Domestic suppliers: profesione, liberales, and honorarios

Domestic suppliers: petty cash

Foreign suppliers

There are currently about 16 foreign supplier categories (for example, technology transference contracts, real estate, transport, international news agencies).

VAT Withholding

Value Added Tax (VAT), a tax charged on the value added to goods or services at each stage of their supply, is withheld by the customer on behalf of a supplier and remitted directly to the proper tax authorities. VAT is withheld when the customer is a VAT withholding agent and the supplier is subject to VAT withholding, registered with the Argentine tax authority, and not a VAT withholding agent.

VAT withholding only applies to domestic supplier invoices. Unlike all other withholdings, the taxable base amount for VAT withholding is per invoice, not per payment. For withholding to apply, the sum of the invoice withholding amount must be greater than or equal to the minimum withheld amount for VAT.

There are currently three categories of VAT withholding: Goods, Services (including freight), and Real Estate. Each category is assigned a distinct withholding rate by the Argentine tax authority. There are no minimum taxable base amounts associated with VAT categories.

VAT withholding has these characteristics:

Turnover Tax Withholding

Turnover tax withholding is the withholding of provincial taxes on behalf of the supplier. Turnover tax withholding applies to domestic suppliers only.

Provinces that levy Turnover tax are classified with a jurisdiction of Territorial or Country-wide. You can associate only one Territorial province jurisdiction with an invoice line, but you can associate several Country-wide province jurisdictions with an invoice line.

A Territorial province jurisdiction represents the province where the service is provided or where goods are delivered to customers. Withholding taxes for a Territorial province jurisdiction apply when:

Withholding taxes for a Country-wide province jurisdiction apply when the customer is a Turnover tax withholding agent and the supplier is subject to Turnover tax in the particular province.

The basic Turnover tax withholding calculation is based on a payment taxable base amount multiplied by the applicable withholding rate. Some provinces use a minimum taxable base amount while others use a minimum withheld amount. In addition, there is a different calculation method for multilateral agreements.

Turnover tax withholding has the following characteristics:

Employer Contribution Withholding (SUSS)

Employer contribution withholding SUSS is a series of social security withholding regimes that you withhold from companies and remit to the federal authorities. These contributions apply to domestic suppliers only.

There are four regimes included under employer contribution SUSS:

Employer Contribution General Withholding Regime

Companies must act as withholding agents for the Social Security Withholding Regime for payments made to companies that are both employers and VAT registered.

Employer contribution withholding SUSS has the following characteristics:

Example

The withholding calculation method is the same as the VAT Withholding calculation. Consider these invoices:

Invoice 1 - 15/12/04 $4.000 + VAT Payment date 01/01/05

Invoice 2 - 17/12/04 $3.000 + VAT Payment date 02/01/05

Invoice 3 - 01/01/05 $1.000 + VAT Payment date 05/01/05

The withholding calculation for each invoice is as follows:

Invoice 1 - $80 (80>40) 4.000 x 2% = 80

Invoice 2 - $60 (60>40) 3.000 x 2% = 60

Invoice 3 - $0 (20<40) 1.000 x 2% = 20

Employer Contribution Withholding Regime for Construction Companies

Companies must act as withholding agents for the Social Security Withholding Regime when paying construction companies.

The zone where construction takes place may receive a discount against the standard rate. The discount is built into the standard rate for a zone.

Each zone has a standard set of two categories. The associated rates may differ by category and by zone (including discount). The withholding rate to apply is the rate for a particular category for the time period that the payment date falls within.

No minimum taxable base amounts or minimum withheld amounts exist for this withholding tax.

Employer contribution withholding SUSS for construction companies has these characteristics:

Employer Contribution Withholding Regime for Temporary Personnel Agencies

Companies must act as withholding agents for the Social Security Withholding Regime when paying companies that are temporary personnel agencies.

The zone where work takes place may receive a discount against the standard rate. The discount is built into the standard rate for a zone.

An invoice normally consists of three invoice lines: salary, social security contribution, and mark up (profit margin). The withholding applies only to the salary line. The salary line is subject to the contribution withholding rate within the applicable zone or region. The mark-up line is potentially subject to Income, VAT, and Turnover withholding taxes.

Each zone has a standard set of five concepts. The associated rates may differ by concept and by zone (including discount). The normal practice is to combine the concepts into one category and apply one rate to the taxable base amount, taking into account the individual rates.

There are no minimum taxable base amounts, minimum withheld amounts, or supplier exemptions for this withholding tax.

Employer contribution withholding SUSS for temporary personnel agencies has the following characteristics:

Employer Contribution Withholding Regime for Private Security Companies

Companies must act as withholding agents for the Social Security Withholding Regime when paying companies that provide private security services.

Employer contribution withholding SUSS for private security companies has the following characteristics:

Example

The withholding calculation method is similar to the Income Tax Withholding Regime. The one difference is that the minimum taxable base of $8000 is compared with rather than subtracted from the cumulative payments. Consider these invoices:

Invoice 1 - 15/12/04 $4.000 + VAT Payment date 01/01/05

Invoice 2 - 17/12/04 $3.000 + VAT Payment date 02/01/05

Invoice 3 - 01/01/05 $3.000 + VAT Payment date 05/01/05

Invoice 4 - 05/01/05 $2.000 + VAT Payment date 10/01/05

The withholding calculation for each invoice is as follows:

Invoice 1 - $0 (4000<8000)

Invoice 2 - $0 (7000(4000+3000)<8000)

Invoice 3 - $600 (10000 (4000+3000+3000) > 8000) = 10.000 x 6%= 600 - 0 = 600

Invoice 4 - $120 (12000 (4000+3000+3000+2000)>8000) = 12.000 x 6% = 720 - 600 = 120

Argentine Simplified Regime Contributors (Monotributistas)

Through Resolution 2616, the Argentine Fiscal Authority created a new Withholding Regime for Income Tax and VAT applicable to Simplified Regime Contributors (Monotributistas). This new regime is effective from January 1st 2010 onwards, on any payments made to monotributistas that have met a certain annual threshold billing amount predefined by the government. The thresholds are subject to changes by the Federal Government.

Simplified Regime Contributors (monotributistas) are small businesses or individuals whose annual revenue does not exceed the threshold amounts stipulated by the government. They only pay to the fiscal authority a monthly fee that covers VAT and Income Tax. They are not considered subject to income or VAT withholding taxes until their billing does not meet the annual threshold.

The new withholding regime applicable to Simplified Regime Contributors was created to avoid certain companies or individuals using this fiscal category to pay less tax by withholding if the thresholds are passed. Once a Monotributista is excluded from the Simplified Regime they must register under Income Tax and VAT, and they will only apply again for the Simplified Regime after three years as registered contributors.

Almost every company in Argentina has transactions with Simplified Regime contributors. Companies in Argentina not complying with this requirement can face severe fines applied by the Federal Fiscal Authority.

Simplified Regime Contributors Process

Using the Argentine Extended Withholding solution, you can set up suppliers, withholding types, and rates applicable to simplified regimes (monotributistas). The Simplified Regime Contributors process consists of the following tasks:

  1. Identify Suppliers who are Monotributistas

  2. Verify Suppliers Billing Information against Fiscal Authority Thresholds

  3. Analyze information through the Monotributistas Billing vs. Threshold Verification Report (for management reporting)

  4. Automatically enable Simplified Regime applicability to Monotributistas that meet thresholds

Setting Up Simplified Regime Contributors

To set up the Simplified Regime Contributors feature, perform the following tasks:

  1. Define the Threshold Amounts

  2. Set Up Existing Suppliers

  3. Define Simplified Regime Withholding Tax Types

  4. Define New Withholding Tax Name

  5. Update Company Withholding Applicability

  6. Update Supplier Applicability

  7. Transactions Entry

Define the Threshold Amounts

To define the Threshold amounts, navigate to the Simplified Regime Contributor Threshold window.

Payables > Localizations > Argentina Withholding Setup > Define Monotributo Suppler Threshold

Enter the Threshold Amount in Argentine pesos per Monotributista Contributor Types of Goods and Services.

Set Up Existing Suppliers

Set or unset suppliers as monotributistas using the VAT Registration Status Code Global Descriptive (GDF) segment. Mark the supplier as a Simplified Regime Contributor Type using the Global Descriptive Flexfield in the Payables Supplier window.

Set Simplified Regime Contributor Type (Seller of Goods of Services Provider).

Define Simplified Regime Withholding Tax Types

Define new Tax Types for Simplified Regimes by selecting the Simplified Regime checkbox. Verify that the Taxable Base Amount Basis for those withholding types selected as Simplified Regime is set to Invoice rather than Payment. For example, Simplified Withholding Regime for Income Tax or Simplified Withholding Regime for VAT.

Define New Withholding Tax Names

Define new Withholding Tax Names for those Simplified Regime Withholding Tax Types. Define one primary rate for each Simplified Regime Withholding Type.

Update Company Withholding Applicability

Enable company applicability for the Simplified Regimes Withholding Types.

Note: The company applicability setup is not automatically performed.

Update Supplier Applicability

You must manually enable (or disable) supplier applicability for the Simplified Regime Withholding Types. You can manually set up the supplier applicability once the threshold is met, or if the supplier is no longer a former monotributista under special rates.

Note: This task can be performed automatically by the Monotributo report, or you can enable it manually.

Transactions Entry

If you run the Montributo report in the List/Verify mode, you have the option to run the report, identify the invoices from when the threshold was first met, manually update the supplier applicability, access that invoice (and subsequent ones), and manually change the withholding default by clicking the re-default button for each applicable line.

You can manually enter or re-default supplier withholding applicability at the Invoice Distribution level for unpaid invoices in the Invoice Distribution Withholdings window.

Argentina Monotributistas Billing vs. Threshold Verification Report

Use the Standard Submission window to run the Argentina Monotributistas Billing vs. Threshold Verification Report. The report can be executed in the following two modes:

List and Verify

In the List and Verify mode, the report lists the monotributistas both subject to and not subject to Simplified Withholding. Only billing information based on the report date provided is verified, and no setup or invoice applicability is updated.

List, Verify, and Update

In the List, Verify, and Update mode, the report lists the monotributistas both subject to and not subject to Simplified Withholding. Billing information based on the report date provided is verified, and the Supplier Applicability setup for the suppliers who are still not subject to, but have met the threshold, is automatically updated.

It will re-default primary withholding tax rates belonging to all types selected as Simplified Regime of unpaid invoices for which threshold is met.

With this report user will be able to do the following:

9. Define Supplier Provincial Inscription Numbers

Use the Business Entity Relationships window to enter inscription number information for domestic suppliers. Each supplier has a unique provincial inscription number for each province where the supplier is subject to provincial tax withholdings.

The Business Entity Relationships window defines the inscription numbers of each supplier and the associated tax authority that applies for each inscription number. For each provincial tax authority associated with a supplier, maintain both the province code and the supplier's inscription number.

Prerequisites

Before you can define supplier provincial inscription numbers, you must:

To define supplier provincial inscription numbers:

  1. Navigate to the Business Entity Relationships window.

  2. In the Primary ID Number field, enter the supplier's taxpayer ID.

  9. Repeat steps 5 to 8 for each tax authority to associate with the supplier.

10. Define Withholding Tax Types

Use the Withholding Tax Types window to define and maintain withholding tax types and their associated attributes for withholding calculation.

You must define a unique code and set of attributes for each withholding tax type. The attributes that you define should relate to the withholding tax codes that you intend to associate with each withholding tax type.

For Income taxes, you must define one Income tax type for domestic suppliers and one for foreign suppliers (for example, Income-Domestic and Income-Foreign). For Turnover taxes, you must define a tax type for each province.

Note: The tax withholding types generate default attributes for withholding tax codes, but you can change default attributes as required. For more information, see Step 11. Define Withholding Tax Codes and Rates.

Many withholding tax type attributes apply only to a subset of the four withholding taxes (Income, VAT, Turnover, SUSS). The following procedure indicates which attributes apply to which type of withholding.

Prerequisites

Before you can define withholding tax types, you must:

11. Define Withholding Tax Codes and Rates

Use the globalization flexfield in the Tax Codes window to define and maintain withholding information for withholding tax codes.

You associate a withholding tax type with each tax code that you define. The withholding tax type generates default attributes for the tax code. In most cases, you can change the default attributes as required by the tax code definition.

You can associate a withholding tax type with more than one tax code. In general, you need to create a unique tax code within a withholding tax type whenever different rates or attributes apply.

For example, you must define unique tax codes for each of these combinations:

You associate withholding tax codes with item, freight, and miscellaneous document line type amounts for the withholding tax calculation. You do not normally associate withholding tax codes with tax lines.

When you define a withholding tax code for period-based taxes, such as Income - Goods and Services and Income - Profesiones Liberales and Honorarios, you need to associate a special calendar with the withholding tax code. Use the Special Calendar window to define a special calendar for withholding tax code definitions.

Tax Treatment in Argentina

In Argentina, individuals or companies must pay taxes to federal, provincial, and city governments on most of the goods and services that they purchase. Oracle Payables for Argentina tax functionality helps you calculate tax on purchasing invoices, credit memos and debit memos for the following Argentine taxes:

Each tax can have different calculation methods and rates depending on factors such as the location of the company, the supplier, or both; the items received; the status of the parties involved; and so on.

Tax Treatment Features

You must define a separate tax type in Payables for each tax or tax concept that you have to report, account for and print separately:

VAT can have up to three tax types (VAT, VAT Non Taxable and VAT Perceptions) because these taxes have different applicability rules and rates. For Provincial and Municipal Perceptions, each province and municipality can be defined as separate tax types. Alternatively, you can create one tax type for Provincial Perceptions, one tax type for Municipal Perceptions, and separate tax codes for each of the different provinces and municipalities.

In the Tax Code window, you must define tax codes and associate each tax code with a defined tax type. The values of the tax types are entered as Tax Type lookup codes for the lookup type TAX TYPE in the Oracle Payables Lookups window.

VAT

VAT is a federal tax that is calculated on transactions with suppliers that involve purchasing invoices, debit memos, and credit memos. A single line may only have one VAT rate. A single invoice can have several VAT rates depending on the invoice lines.

VAT Non Taxable

VAT Non Taxable is used to identify the document lines that are non taxable and for which there are no associated taxes that are reported for VAT.

VAT Perceptions

VAT Perceptions is a tax invoiced to a client as prepayment of VAT. Periodically, a company pays the tax authority the amount corresponding to the total of the Perceptions collected, separate from the monthly VAT payment. Companies' designated VAT Perceptions agents by the tax authority are the only entities authorized to collect VAT Perceptions. VAT Perceptions are the only federal Perceptions that are levied on purchases and remitted to the federal authorities.

Provincial Perceptions

Provincial Perceptions is a tax paid at the provincial level. Each province has its own regulations, and each province's tax system has different calculation percentages. Provincial Perceptions are reported and accounted separately for each province.

Municipal Perceptions

Municipal Perceptions is a tax paid at the municipal level. Each municipality has its own regulations, and each municipality's tax system has different calculation percentages. Municipal Perceptions are reported and accounted separately for each municipality.

Excise

Excise is a tax that is calculated on documents for certain imported and specific products.

Invoices

When you enter a standard invoice, credit memo, debit memo, or prepayment invoice, Oracle Payables defaults withholding tax codes at the distribution line level based on your withholding tax setup information.

An invoice number consists of a branch number (which is the point of sale) and the actual document number, and may optionally have letters to clarify the purpose of the document. You must enter a dash between the branch number and the document number so that the two segments can be identified for the purposes of reporting, for example, 01-032567 ND. If the branch number entered in the first segment is less than 4 digits, the branch number will be preceded by zeros, for example 0001. Similarly if the document number entered in the second segment is less than 8 digits, the document number will be preceded by zeros, for example, 00032567.

For Argentine withholding, you might need to perform one or more of these operations:

Entering Withholding Information

Use the Invoices window to enter invoices, credit memos, debit memos, or prepayment invoices and associated withholding information.

Use the globalization flexfield in the Invoices window to enter transaction information and foreign supplier customs information.

Use the Ship To field in the Invoice Lines window to enter a ship-to location for invoices without a purchase order and if you want this location to be defaulted to all the invoice distributions..

Note: When you use a distribution set to create invoice distributions and do not enter a ship-to location, a warning message will ask you to enter a ship-to location so that withholdings are defaulted for each distribution. If you ignore the message, you must manually update the ship-to locations for each distribution that you create.

Tax-inclusive Documents

Tax-inclusive documents use different taxable base amounts in the withholding calculations. Use the Tax Inclusive field in the globalization flexfield in the Invoices window to indicate whether an invoice is tax inclusive. If you know the tax amount, enter the amount for corresponding distribution lines in the Tax Inclusive Amount field in the globalization flexfield in the Distributions window.

If you know the tax amount, Oracle Payables bases the withholding calculation on the gross amount or net amount, depending on the withholding tax type attributes. If you do not know the tax amount, Oracle Payables bases the withholding calculation on the gross amount.

To enter withholding information for invoices:

  1. Navigate to the Invoices window.

  2. Query or enter the invoice that you want.

  3. Navigate to the globalization flexfield.

  4. In the Legal Transaction Category field, enter the legal transaction category for the transaction.

  10. In the CAI Number field, Oracle Payables defaults the Printing Authorization Code associated with the supplier site of this document.

  11. In the CAI Due Date field, Oracle Payables defaults the CAI Due Date for the CAI associated with the supplier site of this document.

  12. Enter the destination code in the Destination Code field to associate this document with imports. Use the Lookups window to define destination code values with the lookup type JLZZ_AP_DESTINATION_CODE. Define the lookup code as Destination Code.

  13. Press the OK button.

  14. Navigate to the Distributions window by pressing the Distributions button.

  15. Navigate to the first distribution line.

    If the invoice has a purchase order attached, Oracle Payables displays the ship-to location, which you can change until the invoice is approved. If there is no purchase order and you entered a ship-to location at the header level, the ship-to location defaults in the globalization flexfield. If you did not enter ship-to information at the header level, you must enter the ship-to location in the globalization flexfield.

  16. If the invoice is a tax-inclusive document, enter the tax amount, if known, in the Tax Inclusive Amount field. If you do not know the tax amount, enter 0.

    Note: To enter a value in the Tax Inclusive Amount field, you must enter Yes in the Tax Inclusive field in the globalization flexfield in the Invoices window.

Argentine Payables Withholding Flat File

Use the Argentine Payables Withholding Flat Files to electronically report federal, zonal, and provincial withholding tax information into various DGI applications that run under SIAP. Run the Argentine Payables Withholding Flat File monthly and import the file into the correct DGI application, if required. After the flat files are imported, the DGI applications produce all required information, including flat files, and can also generate tax reports for control purposes.

The Argentine Payables Withholding Flat File has three formats, each for a different jurisdictions.

Extract VAT and Income tax domestic withholdings information on a monthly basis for importing into the SICORE application. You can extract Income tax withholding information for foreign suppliers to import into the DGI SICORE application. You might want to extract this withholding information on a per payment basis because the SICORE application is used to create foreign supplier withholding certificates.

Extract Zonal withholdings information on a monthly basis for importing into the DGI SIJP application.

The Argentine Payables Withholding Flat File can also extract provincial tax withholding information. Each province has its own format but the extract file contains commonly-required tax information.

The Argentine Payables Withholding Flat File reports the withholding tax amount in the ledger currency. For each format, the flat file generates one row per applicable tax withholding certificate. Payables will not report void certificates. The number and types of columns per row depend on the jurisdiction that taxes are reported for. Records are sorted by withholding date and supplier CUIT number for each format.

The document number, used in the federal and provincial formats, identifies a payment to a supplier. This number comprises the last five digits of the bank account number, followed by #, and then the last six digits of the check number.

For more information about file content, see Argentine Payables Withholding Flat File Content.

Use the Standard Request Submission windows to submit the Argentine Payables Withholding Flat File.

Argentine Payables Supplier Statement Report

Use the Argentine Payables Supplier Statement report to provide supplier information in response to supplier inquires.

The Argentine Payables Supplier Statement report shows, for each supplier included in the report, all invoice transactions within a specified range of dates for a specified transaction type.

Note: Payables only prints supplier information for suppliers that have a bill-to and ship-to address defined at the supplier header level.

The report groups transactions by currency. If you run the report by ledger currency, the report prints only one currency section for each supplier. If you run the report by transaction currency, the report prints as many sections as there are transactions in that currency for each supplier.

The Argentine Payables Supplier Statement report is also divided into two sections.

Argentine Payables VAT Buying Report

The Argentine Payables VAT Buying report lists VAT information on purchases for any period, in your ledger currency.

The Argentine Payables VAT Buying report includes only VAT tax type distribution lines from documents that are accounted in the Payables subledger and a General Ledger date within the date range you select.

You can choose to exclude document types associated with a certain transaction letter from the Argentine Payables VAT Buying report. For example, you can exclude payments to tax authorities and employee expense reimbursements by entering the appropriate letter in the Transaction Letter for Excluded Transactions parameter.

The Argentine Payables VAT Buying report prints a separate line for each VAT rate on each document. For each document, the Argentine Payables VAT Buying report shows the document amount, the non-taxable amount, the exempt amount, and the perceptions amount, as well as the taxable amount, the tax rate, and the tax amount for the standard VAT rate. If the document contains more than one VAT rate, the Argentine Payables VAT Buying report prints only the taxable amount, the tax rate, and the tax amount for each VAT rate other than the standard VAT rate.

The non-taxable amount for a document is the total of all document distribution lines associated with the tax type that you select as your non-taxable tax type.

The perceptions amount is the total of all tax amounts on the document associated with the tax type that you select as your perceptions tax type.

The exempt amount for a document is the total of all document distribution lines associated with a tax rate equal to zero. If a supplier bills a VAT exempt item, associate the distribution line to a zero-rate VAT tax type so that the flat file displays the transaction as an exempt amount.

The taxable amount for a VAT rate on a document is the total of all document distribution lines associated with that VAT rate.

The documents on the Argentine Payables VAT Buying report are sorted by document date, supplier, and document number.

Tax Treatment in Argentina

In Argentina, legal entities must collect and remit taxes to federal, state, and city governments on most of the goods and services that they sell. Oracle Receivables for Argentina and Oracle Order Management for Argentina tax functionality helps you calculate tax for invoices for the following Argentine taxes:

Each tax can have different calculation methods and rates depending on factors such as the location of the company, the customer, or both; the items received; the status of the parties involved; and so on.

Tax is levied at the time of invoice. Taxes may be levied on specific invoice line items, on an individual invoice, or on a related set of invoices.

Tax Treatment Features

The following taxes are currently levied in Argentina for Receivables purposes:

You must define a separate tax category in Receivables for each tax that you are obliged to report, account for, or print separately.

For example, depending on your requirements, VAT can have up to five tax categories (VAT, Additional VAT, VAT Not Categorized, VAT Non Taxable, and VAT Perceptions) because these taxes have different applicability rules and rates. Similarly, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise are defined as separate tax categories. Provincial Turnover Perceptions and Municipal Perceptions are grouped by tax regime and reported separately to each province or municipality.

Oracle Receivables for Argentina calculates taxes on an invoice according to the following criteria:

You only have to define the taxes that are applicable to your organization; more than one tax may apply to an invoice line. Oracle Receivables takes into account the minimum taxable amounts and minimum tax amounts for each tax, if required.

When calculating taxes, Receivables determines the taxable base by considering a single transaction line, several transaction lines, or several related transactions, depending on the invoice.

VAT

VAT is a federal tax that is calculated on transactions with customers that involve invoices, debit notes, and credit notes. There may be more than one VAT rate for a single invoice line. A single line may only have one VAT rate. A single invoice can have several VAT rates depending on the invoice lines.

Additional VAT

Additional VAT is a federal tax that is calculated on transactions between registered VAT Companies with nonregistered VAT customers.

VAT Not Categorized

VAT Not Categorized is a tax that is calculated on transactions with non categorized customers. A customer may be classified as a non registered customer or a non categorized customer, but cannot be classified as both types.

VAT Non Taxable

VAT Non Taxable is used to identify the document lines that are non taxable and for which there are no associated tax lines that are reported for VAT, VAT Exempt, VAT Perceptions, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, or Excise.

VAT Perception

VAT Perception is a tax invoiced to a client as prepayment of a given tax. Periodically, a company pays the tax authority the amount corresponding to the total of the Perceptions collected from customers, separate from the monthly VAT payment. Companies designated VAT Perceptions agents by the tax authority are the only entities authorized to collect VAT Perceptions.

Provincial Turnover Perceptions

Provincial Turnover Perceptions is a tax paid at the provincial level. Each province has its own regulations, and each province's tax system has different calculation percentages, minimum taxable base amounts, and minimum amounts of perceptions. Turnover Perceptions are reported and accounted separately for each province.

Companies recognized by the provincial tax authority as perceptions or withholding agents in each jurisdiction practice Perceptions of this tax. Consequently the same company may be a Perceptions agent in more than one province.

Excise

Excise is a tax that is calculated on transactions for certain imported and specific products.

Municipal Perceptions

Municipal Perceptions is a tax paid at the municipal level for each municipal jurisdiction. Each municipality has its own regulations, and each municipality's tax system has different calculation percentages. Municipal Perceptions are reported and accounted separately for each municipality.

Argentine Tax Handling

You can set up Oracle Receivables for Argentina to automatically calculate VAT, Additional VAT, VAT Not Categorized, VAT Non Taxable, VAT Perceptions, and all provincial, municipal, and excise taxes that apply to your invoices.

Receivables uses information about your company, your customers, and transaction items and memo lines to calculate these taxes. Each transaction consists of a customer ship-to address and one or more items or memo lines. For Receivables to calculate each tax correctly, you must define information about each tax for every customer address and item or memo line contained in your system.

Once you set up Receivables to manage VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise, the system performs the following operations on every invoice line:

These processes are managed in Oracle Receivables by the Latin Tax Engine. You should refer to the information in the Oracle Financials Common Country Features User Guide about the Latin Tax Engine as you perform the Receivables setup tasks.

Setting Up for VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise

3. Define Tax Condition Values

Use the Lookups window to define lookup codes for VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise tax condition values.

Tax condition values specify each of the possible values of a tax condition. For example, the possible values of the tax condition VAT Registered for an organization are Registered and Not Registered.

Define tax conditions for the lookup type JLZZ_AR_TX_ATTR_VALUE.

VAT Registration status codes are defined as tax conditions. Use the lookup type JLZZ_AR_TX_ATTR_VALUE to define new lookup codes for VAT Registration status codes as Tax Attribute Value Type. For the new VAT Registration status code values, you need to complete all Latin Tax Engine setup. You should refer to the information in the Oracle Financials Common Country Features User Guide about the Latin Tax Engine as you perform the Receivables setup tasks.

You can update the existing tax condition codes with VAT Registration status codes that have the same meaning. For example, if you have the tax condition Registered and you need to define a VAT Registration status of 01-Registered, insert 01- at the beginning of the Meaning field. This mapping will provide the VAT Registration status two-digit code that is needed for reporting.

To update existing tax condition codes with VAT Registration status codes defined by the Fiscal Authority, you insert the two digit code in the Meaning field. For example, for the tax condition Registered, insert 01- at the beginning of the Meaning field. 01-Registered will provide the Fiscal Authority's registration status code for Registered contributors that is needed for reporting.

After you define tax condition values for each tax condition, you can associate both the tax condition and tax condition values with Latin tax categories. See: Step 6. Associate Tax Categories with Tax Conditions and Values for more information.

This table shows the tax condition values to define for organizations, contributors, and transactions for VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise:

This data is already included in your installation

Lookup Type Lookup Code Description
JLZZ_AR_TX_ATTR_VALUE REGISTERED Registered

JLZZ_AR_TX_ATTR_VALUE OUTSIDE END CONSUMER Customer is end consumer, but located outside province
JLZZ_AR_TX_ATTR_VALUE GOODS Goods
JLZZ_AR_TX_ATTR_VALUE SERVICES Services

4. Define Legal Message Exception Codes

Use the Lookups window to define lookup codes for legal message exceptions. You can select lookup codes from lists of values after you define them.

Legal message exception codes are used to define the type of exception for which you can then associate a legal message. See Step 22. Associate Legal Messages and Tax Rules for more information.

Add as many legal message exception codes as you require. Use the lookup type JL_ZZ_AR_TX_LEGAL_MESSAGE to define a new legal message exception code.

5. Define Tax Categories

Use the Lookups window to define lookup codes for tax categories for VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise.

Use the Latin Tax Categories window, after you create the lookup codes, to define the VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise tax categories.

Note: If you want the Latin Tax Engine to derive a tax code from a tax category, associate the tax code with a tax category after you define it in the Tax Codes and Rates window. See Step 7. Define Tax Codes and Rates for more information.

You create five tax category lookup codes for VAT:

You create three tax category lookup codes for additional tax categories:

You create a Provincial Turnover Perceptions tax category lookup code for each province and similarly a Municipal Perceptions tax category lookup code for each municipality.

This table shows the tax category lookup codes to define for VAT:

Use the Latin Tax Categories window to define VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise tax categories, using the tax category lookup codes that you created in the Lookups window.

Note: You can modify the tax categories included in your installation to suit your specific needs.

To define a tax category:

  1. Navigate to the Latin Tax Categories window.

  2. Select the applicable operating unit.

  3. Enter a tax category in the Category field.

  4. Enter the effective dates for this tax category. The tax category is effective within the range that you specify.

  5. In the Threshold Check Level field, enter one of the following:

  6. In the Grouping Condition Type field, enter one of the following:

  7. If you entered Transaction Condition in the Grouping Condition Type field, enter the transaction condition to group by in the Grouping Condition field.

    Note: Receivables automatically populates the Grouping Condition Type field with Transaction Condition and the Grouping Condition field with the applicable transaction condition, if you check the Grouping Attribute check box in the Associate Latin Tax Category with Conditions and Values window for a tax category and tax condition combination. See Step 6. Associate Tax Categories with Tax Conditions and Values for more information.

  8. Select a tax code in the Tax Code field after you define tax codes and rates from a list of values, if you want to use a default tax code for this tax category.

    Note: You only perform this step after you define tax codes and rates. See Step 20. Define Latin Tax Rules for more information.

  9. In the Tax Authority Code field, select the DGI tax type code from the list of values.

    Note: Use the Latin Tax Categories window to associate DGI Tax Type Codes with tax categories. Before you associate these codes, you define lookup codes for the DGI Tax Type Code with the JLAR_AP_DGI_TAX_TYPE lookup type.

  10. In the Min Amount, Min Taxable Basis, and Minimum % fields, enter the appropriate values to use with this tax.

    This table shows how Receivables uses the values in these fields:

    Field Name Tax Does Not Apply If...
    Min Amount Tax calculated is less than this value
    Min Taxable Basis Taxable base is less than this value
    Minimum % Tax rate is less than this value
  11. Check the Inclusive Tax check box if you want tax included in the price at invoice line level. Leave the check box unchecked if you do not.

    Note: You cannot change the Inclusive Tax setting after you associate the tax category with a tax code or a tax group.

  12. Check the Mandatory in Class check box if you want the tax category to appear in every tax condition class.

    Note: This setting applies to VAT only (not Additional VAT or VAT Perceptions).

  13. Check the Print check box if you want the tax line printed. Leave the check box unchecked if you do not.

  14. In the Tax Regime field, select the tax regime from the list of values.

  15. Provincial - Use this tax regime to group Provincial Turnover Perceptions tax categories for reporting purposes.

  16. Municipal - Use this tax regime to group Municipal Perceptions tax categories for reporting purposes.

6. Associate Tax Categories with Tax Conditions and Values

Use the Associate Latin Tax Category with Conditions and Values window to associate VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise tax categories with tax conditions to create determining factor tax conditions. Oracle Receivables uses determining factor tax conditions to determine whether VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise apply to a transaction.

Define one determining factor tax condition for each combination of:

For the contributor condition type, you can associate a DGI customer condition code with contributor tax condition values. For the transaction condition type, you can associate a DGI tax regime code with transaction tax condition values. The Argentine Receivables Perceptions flat file uses these codes to sort perceptions tax information. Use the Oracle Receivables Lookups window to define DGI customer condition codes and DGI tax regime codes. Define DGI customer condition codes for the JLAR_AP_SUPP_CONDITION_CODE lookup type and DGI tax regime codes for the JLAR_TAX_AUTHORITY_CATEGORY lookup type.

This table shows the determining factor tax conditions to define for VAT:

This data is already included in your installation

Tax Category Condition Type Condition Name Mandatory in Class Determining Factor Grouping Attribute Condition Value

VAT Transaction Condition VAT TRANS STATUS Yes Yes No Export or Exempt
VAT ADDL Transaction Condition VAT ADDL TRANS STATUS Yes Yes No Export or Exempt
VATPERC Transaction Condition VAT PERC TRANS STATUS Yes Yes No Export or Exempt

Use these guidelines for associating tax categories with tax conditions for VAT:

  1. Check the Determining Factor check box for all tax categories and condition types.

    There is one determining factor tax condition for each tax category per condition type.

  2. Check the Mandatory in Class check box for all tax categories and condition types.

    All determining factor tax conditions are mandatory in class.

  3. Uncheck the Grouping Attribute check box for all condition types. There is no threshold check for VAT.

  4. In the Tax Reporting Code field, you can enter a DGI customer condition code for contributor condition values or a DGI tax regime code for transaction tax condition values.

  5. For condition values, check the Default to Class check box to default a condition value to the tax condition class for a tax category, condition type, and condition name combination. You can only check the Default to Class check box for one condition value for each combination of tax category, condition type, and condition name.

This table shows an example of determining factor tax conditions to define for Turnover perceptions:

This data is already included in your installation

Tax Category Condition Type Condition Name Mandatory in Class Determining Factor Grouping Attribute Condition Value
TOPCF Organization Condition TO CF ORG STATUS Yes Yes No Registered or Not Registered
TOPCF Contributor Condition TO CF CONT STATUS Yes Yes No Prov Registered, Exempt, TOA Registered, End Consumer, Excluded
TOPCF Transaction Condition TO CF TRANS STATUS Yes Yes Yes Applicable or Not Applicable
TOPBA Organization Condition TO BA ORG STATUS Yes Yes No Registered or Not Registered
TOPBA Contributor Condition TO BA CONT STATUS Yes Yes No Prov Registered, Exempt, TOA Registered, End Consumer, Excluded
TOPBA Transaction Condition TO BA TRANS STATUS Yes Yes Yes Applicable or Not Applicable

Use these guidelines for associating tax categories with tax conditions for Turnover perceptions:

  1. Create a tax category for each province.

  2. Create determining factor tax conditions for each province.

  3. Create determining tax conditions for the province tax category for each of the three condition types (organization, contributor, and transaction).

  4. Check the Determining Factor check box for all tax categories and condition types.

  5. Check the Mandatory in Class check box for all tax categories and condition types.

    All determining factor tax conditions are mandatory in class.

  6. Check the Grouping Attribute check box for transaction conditions only.

    By checking this check box, Receivables adds invoice lines with the same tax condition values before comparing the amount to the threshold.

    Note: Receivables automatically populates the Grouping Condition Type field with Transaction Condition and the Grouping Condition field with the transaction condition in the Latin Tax Categories window for this tax category. See Step 5. Define Tax Categories for more information.

  7. In the Tax Reporting Code field, you can enter a DGI customer condition code for contributor condition values or a DGI tax regime code for transaction tax condition values.

  8. For condition values, check the Default to Class check box to default a condition value to the tax condition class for a tax category, condition type, and condition name combination. You can only check the Default to Class check box for one condition value for each combination of tax category, condition type, and condition name.

7. Define Tax Codes and Rates

Use the Tax Codes and Rates window to define tax codes and rates for VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise tax categories. Use the globalization flexfield in the Tax Codes and Rates window to assign a tax category to a tax code. Use these guidelines for creating Tax Codes and Rates:

  1. Navigate to the Tax Codes and Rates window.

  2. Navigate to the globalization flexfield.

  3. Enter the tax category for the tax code in the Tax Category field.

  4. Select the DGI transaction code from the list of values in the DGI Transaction Code field to assign a code to all documents that include VAT Non Taxable or a VAT rate of 0%.

    Use the Lookups window to define DGI transaction code values with the lookup type JLZZ_AP_DGI_TRX_CODE. Define the lookup code as DGI Transaction Code.

  5. Enter the Turnover Jurisdiction Code to associate the Turnover Jurisdiction with the Provincial Turnover Perceptions tax.

    Use the Lookups window to define Turnover Jurisdiction Code values with the lookup type JLZZ_AR_TO_JURISDICTION_CODE. Define the lookup code as Turnover Jurisdiction Code.

  6. Enter the Municipal Jurisdiction to associate the Municipal Jurisdiction with a Municipal Perceptions tax.

Define as many tax codes as you need for each type of tax. You must define at least one tax code for each VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise tax category, and for each tax rate that exists for a tax category.

For example, if the VAT tax category has one tax rate for goods and a different tax rate for services, you must define two tax codes for the VAT tax category.

VAT

Define one tax code for each tax rate. Define tax codes with the credit sign, because the tax codes correspond to VAT liabilities.

This table provides a guideline for defining tax codes for VAT. Actual rates and accounts depend on the prevailing legislation and on your company's chart of accounts.

8. Define Tax Condition Classes for Organizations

Use the Latin Tax Condition Classes window to define tax condition classes for your organization to manage Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise.

An organization tax condition class defines the tax category and tax condition values for each tax category that apply to an organization.

Each organization tax condition class must contain every tax category marked as Mandatory in Class, and the determining factor tax conditions defined for the tax category, at the organization level. The organization tax condition class can also contain non-Mandatory in Class tax categories, if applicable. For each organization tax condition class, define only one tax condition value for each tax category and tax condition combination.

You must define a separate organization tax condition class for each location that has different tax requirements. For example, if your organization has one location in Buenos Aires and a second location in Capital Federal; and the Buenos Aires location can only tax Buenos Aires turnover perceptions, and the Capital Federal location can only tax Capital Federal turnover perceptions, you must define two organization tax condition classes. In the above example, if both locations could tax both turnover perceptions, they could share the same class.

After you define organization tax condition classes for VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise, assign them to your organization. See Step 9. Assign Tax Condition Classes to Organizations for more information.

This table shows an example of an organization tax condition class:

EXAMPLE ONLY This data is not included in your installation

Class Type Class Code Description Tax Category Condition Code Value Code
Organization VAT-CF-1 VAT Registered and CF Registered VAT VAT REGISTERED REGISTERED
Organization VAT-CF-1 VAT Registered and CF Registered VAT ADDL VAT REGISTERED REGISTERED
Organization VAT-CF-1 VAT Registered and CF Registered TOPCF TO CF ORG STATUS PROV REGISTERED

Use these guidelines for defining a tax condition class for organizations:

  1. In this example, you previously defined the tax condition VAT REGISTERED with the tax condition value of REGISTERED, and the tax condition TO CF ORG STATUS with the tax condition value of PROV REGISTERED as determining factor tax conditions for the VAT, VAT ADDL, and TOPCF tax categories for an organization.

    See Step 6 Associate Tax Categories with Tax Conditions and Values for more information.

  2. Enter Organization in the Class Type field and Organization Condition in the Condition Type field, so that you can assign this condition to organizations.

  3. Select the applicable operating unit.

  4. If your organization is registered as an agent for VAT, enter the tax categories VAT and VAT ADDL and assign both tax categories the value REGISTERED.

  5. If your organization is registered as an agent for VAT Perceptions, enter the tax category VATPERC with the value REGISTERED.

  6. If your organization is registered as an agent for Turnover perceptions in the province of its principal location, enter the tax category for the province, such as TOPCF, with the value REGISTERED.

  7. If your organization is registered as an agent for Turnover perceptions in other provinces, enter the tax category for each province with the value OUTSIDE REGISTERED.

  8. Check the Enabled check box for every tax category, tax condition, and tax condition value that you enter. If you want to omit one or more of these combinations from the tax condition class, uncheck the check box.

    You can use the Enable All and Disable All buttons to enable or disable all check boxes at once. You can enable or disable check boxes individually, depending on your needs.

9. Assign Tax Condition Classes to Organizations

Use the globalization flexfield in the Location window to assign an organization tax condition class to an organization. The organization inherits the values for the determining tax conditions associated with each tax category contained in the tax condition class.

Assign the organization tax condition class to the location associated with the master inventory organization. The master inventory organization is the organization that you define in the Item Validation Organization field of the Order Management Parameters window.

Assign the organization tax condition class to an organization location according to the example in this table:

Location Name Establishment Type
Organization Location VAT and Capital Federal Turnover Perceptions Registered

Note: When you use AutoInvoice, Oracle Receivables uses the tax condition class of the ship-from location.

10. Define Tax Condition Classes for Customers

Use the Latin Tax Condition Classes window to define contributor tax condition classes (for customers) to manage VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise.

A contributor tax condition class identifies a combination of VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise responsibilities for the customer.

After you create contributor tax condition classes for both VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise, assign them to your customers. See Step 11. Assign Tax Condition Classes to Customers for more information.

Customers and VAT registration

Customers both registered for VAT and not registered for VAT are charged VAT. In addition, customers that are not registered for VAT are also charged Additional VAT.

Therefore, when you define your tax group and tax rules, you should include tax condition values of both REGISTERED and NOT REGISTERED so that Receivables generates VAT for all customers. You must also decide whether you want to include customers with tax condition values of EXPORT or EXEMPT in the tax group and tax rules to generate VAT for these customers.

Naming conventions

This section shows the naming convention for the contributor tax condition classes included in your installation.

Note: The two exceptions to this naming convention are VAT-EXEMPT for exempt customers and VAT-EXPORT for customers outside of Argentina.

The naming convention is VAT-X-YY-Z, where:

X

YY

Turnover province location of customer site.

Z

This table shows an example of a contributor tax condition class:

This data is already included in your installation

Class Type Class Code Description Tax Category Condition Code Value Code
Contributor VAT-EXEMPT VAT Exempt VAT VAT CONT STATUS EXEMPT
Contributor VAT-EXPORT VAT Export VAT VAT CONT STATUS EXEMPT
Contributor VAT-A-BA-1 BA Registered, VAT, and VAT Additional VAT VAT CONT STATUS NOT REGISTERED
Contributor VAT-A-BA-1 BA Registered, VAT, and VAT Additional VATADDL VAT ADDL CONT STATUS APPLICABLE
Contributor VAT-A-BA-1 BA Registered, VAT, and VAT Additional TOPBA TO BA CONT STATUS REGISTERED

Use these guidelines for defining tax condition classes for customers:

  1. You previously defined the tax conditions as determining factor tax conditions for VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise tax categories for a contributor.

    See Step 6. Associate Tax Categories with Tax Conditions and Values for more information.

  2. Assign a tax condition value for the determining factors within each tax condition class.

    For VAT, the predefined tax condition is VAT CONT STATUS with tax condition values of EXEMPT, EXPORT, REGISTERED, and NOT REGISTERED. For Additional VAT, the predefined tax condition is VAT ADDL CONT STATUS with tax condition values of APPLICABLE and NOT APPLICABLE.

  3. Enter Contributor in the Class Type field and Contributor Condition in the Condition Type field, so that you can assign these conditions to customers.

11. Assign Tax Condition Classes to Customers

Use the Contributor Class field in the globalization flexfield in the Customer Addresses window to assign a contributor tax condition class to each of your customers. The customer inherits the values for the determining factor tax conditions associated with each tax category contained in the tax condition class.

This table shows a guideline for assigning contributor tax condition classes to your customers:

Customer Class
Customer A (tax exempt) VAT Exempt
Customer B (BA registered, VAT Additional applicable) VAT-A-BA-1
Customer B (Foreign) VAT-EXPORT

After you assign a contributor tax condition class to each of your customers, use the Define Customer Site Tax Profile window to copy the tax condition values to each individual customer site.

Defining Customer Site Tax Profiles

Use the Define Customer Site Tax Profile window to copy the tax condition values to each individual customer site, after you assign a contributor tax condition class to your customers.

You can also use the Define Customer Site Tax Profile window to modify the tax condition values for one customer site only, without changing the tax condition class assignment for the customer's other sites.

Note: You must perform this step for each customer address, even if you do not modify the profile, in order for each customer site to inherit the necessary values from the contributor tax condition class.

Example of how to use the Define Customer Site Tax Profile window

Your company's inventory organization (ship-from site) is located in Capital Federal, with an additional location in Buenos Aires. You ship to a customer in Chubut who also has customer sites in Buenos Aires. This makes the transaction taxable in Buenos Aires.

Assume that the customer is registered for VAT and registered for Turnover with Chubut. Also assume that the customer has a provincial agreement with Buenos Aires.

To accommodate this transaction in Receivables:

  1. Assign the contributor tax condition class that contains the Chubut turnover tax category to the customer.

  2. Navigate to the Define Customer Site Tax Profile window for the Chubut customer site for the customer.

    The Define Customer Site Tax Profile window displays the tax category VAT with the tax condition value REGISTERED; and the tax category TOPCH with the tax condition value PROV REGISTERED.

  3. Add the tax category TOPBA for Buenos Aires Turnover perceptions and the tax condition value OUTSIDE TOA REGISTERED for the customer's provincial agreement with Buenos Aires.

    Note: You must also create entries in the tax group and tax rules to accommodate the value of OUTSIDE TOA REGISTERED for the TOPBA tax category.

12. Define Tax Exceptions by Customer Site

Use the Latin Tax Exceptions by Customer Site window to define tax exceptions by customer site for combinations of customer sites and tax categories.

You define tax exceptions by customer site when a customer is eligible for a tax deduction in a certain tax category and geographical location, or either. For example, new customers that bring business into Argentina may receive tax deductions and are therefore classified as tax exceptions.

Note: All tax exceptions are per customer address, not the customer.

Prerequisites

Before you can use the Latin Tax Exceptions by Customer Site window, you must:

To define tax exceptions by customer sites:

  1. Navigate to the Latin Tax Exceptions by Customer Site window.

  2. In the Customer Name field, enter the customer that you want.

  3. Enter the customer address that you want in the Location field.

  4. Press the Find button.

    Oracle Receivables displays the tax categories that apply to this customer site in the Tax Category fields.

  5. Update the tax categories to reflect the tax exception for this customer site.

    Delete tax categories that do not apply, or enter new tax categories.

  6. In the Effective Dates fields, enter the effective dates for each tax category to reflect the tax exception.

  7. In the Code field, enter the tax code for each tax category.

    The Latin Tax Engine retrieves the tax code for a tax category when the rate-level tax rule is Exceptions by Customer Site.

  8. Repeat steps 2 to 7 for each customer and customer address that you want to apply tax exceptions to.

13. Define Tax Condition Classes for Transactions

Use the Latin Tax Condition Classes window to define transaction tax condition classes to manage VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise. Define taxable and excludable tax conditions for goods and services for VAT, additional VAT, and VAT perceptions; define applicable and not applicable tax conditions for goods and services for Turnover perceptions for each province.

After you define transaction tax condition classes for VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise, assign them to items and memo lines. See Step 15. Assign Tax Condition Classes and Fiscal Classifications to Items and Step 16. Assign Tax Condition Classes and Fiscal Classifications to Memo Lines for more information.

These tables show examples of tax condition classes for transactions:

Transaction T-SERVICES-NO TO   TOPCF Transaction Condition TO CF TRANS STATUS NOT APPLICABLE
Transaction T-SERVICES-NO TO   TOPBA Transaction Condition TO BA TRANS STATUS NOT APPLICABLE

Use these guidelines for defining tax condition classes for transactions:

  1. You previously defined the tax conditions as determining factor tax conditions for the VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise tax categories for a transaction.

    See Step 6. Associate Tax Categories with Tax Conditions and Values for more information.

  2. In the Value Code field, assign a condition value for the determining factors within each tax condition class.

    Enter Goods or Services for VAT, and Applicable or Not Applicable for Turnover perceptions.

  3. Enter Transaction in the Class Type field and Transaction Condition in the Condition Type field, so that you can assign these conditions to transactions.

  4. You must define a transaction tax condition class for every different tax classification that you have.

    For example, if you have a standard goods class of T-GOODS, but you have one item that is not taxable in Capital Federal, you must define another class for this condition. You can define this class based on the T-GOODS example above in one of two ways: T-GOODS-NO-CF or T-GOODS-NOCF-EX.

    The T-GOODS-NO-CF class in this table omits the Capital Federal tax category TOPCF from the class:

    Class Type Class Code Description Tax Category Condition Type Condition Code Value Code
    Transaction T-GOODS-NO-CF Goods subject to VAT or Turnover VAT Transaction Condition VAT TRANS STATUS GOODS
    Transaction T-GOODS-NO-CF Goods subject to VAT or Turnover VATADDL Transaction Condition VAT ADDL TRANS STATUS GOODS
    Transaction T-GOODS-NO-CF Goods subject to VAT or Turnover VATPERC Transaction Condition VAT PERC TRANS STATUS GOODS
    Transaction T-GOODS-NO-CF Goods subject to VAT or Turnover TOPBA Transaction Condition TO BA TRANS STATUS APPLICABLE

    The T-GOODS-NO-CF class in this table omits the Capital Federal tax category TOPCF from the class:

    Class Type Class Code Description Tax Category Condition Type Condition Code Value Code
    Transaction T-GOODS-NOCF-EX Goods subject to VAT or Turnover VAT Transaction Condition VAT TRANS STATUS GOODS
    Transaction T-GOODS-NOCF-EX Goods subject to VAT or Turnover VATADDL Transaction Condition VAT ADDL TRANS STATUS GOODS
    Transaction T-GOODS-NOCF-EX Goods subject to VAT or Turnover VATPERC Transaction Condition VAT PERC TRANS STATUS GOODS
    Transaction T-GOODS-NOCF-EX Goods subject to VAT or Turnover TOPCF Transaction Condition TO CF TRANS STATUS EXEMPT
    Transaction T-GOODS-NOCF-EX Goods subject to VAT or Turnover TOPBA Transaction Condition TO BA TRANS STATUS APPLICABLE

    Note: Depending on the tax group and tax rules you define, these tax condition classes may or may not generate taxes in the same way.

14. Define Fiscal Classifications

Use the Latin Fiscal Classifications window to define fiscal classifications for items and memo lines. You define fiscal classifications for both items (Goods) and memo lines (Services). You can also create specific fiscal classification codes within goods and services, for example, alcohol (Goods), tobacco (Goods), consultancy (Services), catering (Services).

You can optionally associate tax codes that you defined in the Tax Codes and Rates window with fiscal classifications to derive a tax rate. See Step 7. Define Tax Codes and Rates for more information.

If you want to derive a tax code and rate from a fiscal classification code, you must create a fiscal classification tax rule. See Step 20. Define Latin Tax Rules for more information.

Check the Enabled check box to activate a fiscal classification code. You can use the Enable All and Disable All buttons in the Latin Fiscal Classifications window to enable or disable all check boxes at once. You can enable or disable codes individually, depending on your needs.

This table shows an example of fiscal classifications. Actual assignments depend on the prevailing legislation.

15. Assign Tax Condition Classes and Fiscal Classifications to Items

Use the globalization flexfield in the Master Item window to assign a transaction tax condition class and fiscal classification to each item by associating item categories to items. The item inherits the values for all the tax conditions associated to each tax category from the tax condition class.

Note: Ensure that you have defined the applicable item categories.

You must assign a fiscal classification code to an item. The Latin Tax Engine uses the fiscal classification code to find the tax code to apply, if the rule assignment directs the Latin Tax Engine to take the tax code from the fiscal classification.

To assign a tax condition class to an item:

  1. Navigate to the Master Item window.

  2. Enter the inventory organization that you want.

  3. Enter or query the item that you want.

  4. Click the Master Display Attributes radio button to display master item attributes.

  5. Navigate to the globalization flexfield to select the applicable item category.

  6. Press the OK button.

    Note: Oracle Inventory copies the fiscal classification and transaction class to each inventory item from the master item. However, if the fiscal classification or transaction class are different for each inventory organization, you must update them manually.

16. Assign Tax Condition Classes and Fiscal Classifications to Memo Lines

Use the Standard Memo Lines window to assign a transaction tax condition class and fiscal classification to each memo line. The memo line inherits the values for all the tax conditions associated to each tax category from the tax condition class.

You must assign a fiscal classification code to a memo line. The Latin Tax Engine uses the fiscal classification code to find the tax code to apply, if the rule assignment directs the Latin Tax Engine to take the tax code from the fiscal classification.

To assign a tax condition class to a memo line:

  1. Navigate to the Standard Memo Lines window.

  2. Enter or query the memo line that you want.

  3. In the Tax Product Category field, enter the applicable fiscal classification to apply to this memo line.

  4. Press the OK button.

17. Define Latin Tax Group

Use the Latin Tax Groups window to define a tax group for VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise. Create assignments in the tax group for each combination of organization, contributor, and transaction condition values subject to VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise. You must have at least one entry for each tax that you are required to levy.

Create one tax group for the VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise responsibilities that apply to your company.

After you create a tax group for VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise, assign the tax group to each transaction type. See Step 18. Assign Tax Group to Transaction Types for more information.

When the Latin Tax Engine calculates tax on a transaction line, it compares the values for organization tax condition class, customer site profile class, and transaction tax condition class (item or memo line) with the values in the tax group to determine the tax categories to calculate.

This table shows an example of a single tax group for VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise calculations in Argentina. The example includes:

Actual assignments depend on the prevailing legislation.

EXAMPLE ONLY The data in this table is not included in your installation

The key to this table is:

Table Header

Tax Group: AR_TAX Description: Argentine tax group

Tax Category Cont Value Org Value Trans Value Effective From Effective To Tax Code Mini- mum Amount Minimum Taxable Basis
VAT EXPORT REGISTERED GOODS 01/01/90 Default None None None
VAT REGISTERED REGISTERED GOODS 01/01/90 Default VAT-0 None None
TOPBA PROV REGISTERED REGISTERED APPLICABLE 01/01/90 Default BA-5 None 300.000

If the tax group AR_TAX were applied to a transaction line with the values in these tables, the Latin Tax Engine would calculate VAT and TOPBA taxes for the transaction line:

Contributor Tax Condition Class

Tax Category Tax Condition Value
VAT REGISTERED
VATPERC APPLICABLE
TOPBA PROV REGISTERED

Organization Tax Condition Class

Tax Category Tax Condition Value
VAT REGISTERED
TOPBA REGISTERED
TOPCF REGISTERED

Transaction Tax Condition Class

Tax Category Tax Condition Value
VAT GOOD
VATPERC GOOD
VAT ADD GOOD
TOPBA APPLICABLE
TOPCF APPLICABLE

Use these guidelines for defining the tax group:

  1. The tax code that you enter in the Tax Code field for a tax category is used to derive the tax rate for a transaction only when the tax rule looks to the tax group for the tax rate.

  2. If you check the Use Category Thresholds check box for a tax category, and if:

  3. If you do not check the Use Category Thresholds check box, the Latin Tax Engine assumes it should use the minimum amounts for this entry. If there are no values for the entry, no minimum is used.

18. Assign Tax Group to Transaction Types

Use the globalization flexfield in the Transaction Types window to assign the tax group that you defined for VAT, Provincial Turnover Perceptions, Municipal Perceptions, and Excise to each transaction type.

When you use a transaction type to enter a transaction, the tax group defaults to the tax line.

Check the Tax Calculation check box and the Allow Overapplication check box for each transaction type. This lets the Latin Tax Engine calculate and account taxes.

Assign the tax group to your transaction types according to the example in this table:

EXAMPLE ONLY This data is not included in your installation

Transaction Type Tax Code
Transaction Type 1 AR_<NAME>
Transaction Type 2 AR_<NAME>
Transaction Type 3 AR_<NAME>

19. Define Exceptions by Transaction Condition Value

Use the Latin Tax Exceptions by Transaction Condition Values window to define tax exceptions by transaction condition value for combinations of transaction condition values and tax categories.

For example, if you have a tax condition for VAT on goods, you can create an exception for goods identified as fixed assets. The task below explains how to define a transaction condition value tax exception for fixed assets.

After you define transaction nature exceptions, you must create a Latin tax rule for transaction nature exceptions. See Step 20. Define Latin Tax Rules for more information.

See Defining Fixed Asset Exceptions for more information.

Prerequisites

Before you can use the Latin Tax Exceptions by Transaction Condition Values window, you must:

To define a transaction condition value exception for fixed assets:

  1. Navigate to the Latin Tax Exceptions by Transaction Condition Values window.

  2. In the Priority Number field, enter a number to identify the priority for the tax condition that you enter in the Tax Condition Name field.

  3. In the Tax Category field, query the tax category that you want.

  4. In the Tax Condition Name field, query the tax condition that you want for this tax category.

  5. Navigate to the Tax Rates region.

  6. In the Tax Condition Value field, enter the first tax condition value to use as an exception for the tax condition.

  7. In the Start Date Active and End Date Active fields, enter the effective dates for this transaction condition value exception.

  8. In the Tax Code field, enter the tax code to use for this transaction condition value exception.

    The tax code that you enter identifies the tax rate exception.

  9. If applicable, enter the minimum tax amount, minimum percentage, or minimum taxable base for this transaction condition value exception.

  10. Repeat steps 6 to 9 for each tax condition value that you want to use as a transaction condition value exception for this tax condition.

  11. Repeat steps 3 to 10 for all transaction condition value exceptions that you want to define.

20. Define Latin Tax Rules

Use the Latin Tax Rules window to define one or more tax rules for each combination of tax category, contributor condition value, and transaction type that need to have taxes calculated. The Latin Tax Engine uses these rules to determine the correct tax code to apply to a transaction. Define as many tax rules as you require.

If you defined exceptions by customer site and exceptions by transaction condition value, or either, define exceptions as your first tax rules.

Latin Tax Engine and Tax Rules

Tax rules include Transaction Condition Value Exception, Customer Site Exception, Customer, and Latin Tax Group.

When the Latin Tax Engine is invoked, it looks at the tax rules that you have defined in the order assigned to them. The Latin Tax Engine checks the rule with the lowest priority to see if a tax code exists for the rule. If there is no tax code, the Latin Tax Engine proceeds to the tax rule with the next lowest priority, and so on.

For example, for the first rule Transaction Condition Value Exception, the Latin Tax Engine looks to see if the tax category definition for Transaction Condition Value Exception has a tax code. For the rule Customer, the Latin Tax Engine looks to see if there is a rule for this customer.

Note: When the Latin Tax Engine must calculate two or more tax categories based on the same rule, you can define a second tax group. For example, if a customer has a 50% reduction on both VAT and VAT Perceptions, you can define a second tax group for the customer and use this tax group for the customer's transactions.

Defining Tax Rules

To define tax rules, you need to determine the tax rules that you need for each tax according to your setup.

To determine how to define tax rules for a tax category:

  1. Determine the most common way to find the tax rate for the tax category.

    The most common way to find the tax rate is usually the rule Latin Tax Group because the tax group defines the three characteristics of your company, the customer, and the transaction. If you choose to define Latin Tax Group as the most common way to determine a tax rate, you must enter a tax code on every line in the tax group for the tax category.

  2. Determine the exceptions that apply to the tax category.

    The exceptions help you to determine the rules that you define. For example, a tax category may have the following exceptions:

  3. Determine the hierarchy of the exceptions from step 2.

    The hierarchy determines the priority that you assign to each rule. To continue with the example in step 2, the probable hierarchy for these exceptions is:

  4. Define tax rules, according to the hierarchy you determined, for each transaction type and contributor value to which the rules apply.

    This table shows the rules to define for Additional VAT according to the hierarchy described in steps 2 and 3 (with contributor value of Not Registered and transaction type of Invoice).

    EXAMPLE ONLY This data is not included in your installation

    Category Value Transaction Type Rule Level Priority Rule
    VATADDL NOT REGISTERED Invoice Rate 10 Transaction Condition Value Exception
    VATADDL NOT REGISTERED Invoice Rate 20 Customer Site Exception
    VATADDL NOT REGISTERED Invoice Rate 30 Customer
    VATADDL NOT REGISTERED Invoice Rate 40 Latin Tax Group

21. Define Legal Messages

Use the Standard Messages window to enter your legal messages.

You enter a name for the legal message in the Name field, the type of message in the Type field, and the text of the message in the Message field.

After you define legal messages, you need to associate each message with a combination of tax rule, tax exception, and rule data.

See Step 22. Associate Legal Messages and Tax Rules for more information.

Standard Messages, Oracle Receivables User Guide

22. Associate Legal Messages and Tax Rules

Use the Associate Latin Tax Legal Messages window or Legal Messages window to associate legal messages with Latin tax rules. You associate a legal message, which you created in the Standard Messages window, with a combination of tax rule, tax exception, and rule data.

Legal messages are fiscal messages on invoices that explain the reason why a lower tax rate is applied to an invoice line for various exceptions.

23. Associate DGI UOM Codes with UOM Codes

Use the globalization flexfield in the Units of Measure window to assign DGI UOM codes to Oracle Inventory UOM codes. The Argentine Receivables Sales Documents Duplicates Flat File lists the DGI UOM codes assigned to the Inventory UOM codes associated with the reported line items in your sales documents.

Before you can use the globalization flexfield in the Units of Measure window, you must:

Use the Descriptive Flexfield Segments window to define a descriptive flexfield segment with Attribute15 for the Define Unit of Measure flexfield. By default the Argentine Receivables Sales Documents Duplicates Flat File uses Attribute15 to store the DGI UOM codes. If you are already using Attribute15, you can use a different attribute. You must then customize the Argentine Receivables Sales Documents Duplicates Flat File to replace Attribute15 with the attribute that you will use.

To define a descriptive flexfield segment for DGI UOM codes:

  1. Navigate to the System Administrator responsibility.

  2. Navigate to the Descriptive Flexfield Segments window.

  3. Query the Application Oracle Inventory and the Title Define Unit of Measure.

  4. Uncheck the Freeze Flexfield Definition box to unfreeze the flexfield.

  5. Complete the Descriptive Flexfield Segments window according to your business requirements.

  6. Choose the Segments button to navigate to the Segments Summary window.

  7. Choose the Open button to navigate to the Segments window.

  8. Enter a Name to identify this segment, such as DGI UOM, and a Description.

  9. In the Column field, enter Attribute15, or another available attribute, if necessary.

  10. Complete the Segments window according to your business requirements.

  11. Save your work.

  12. In the Descriptive Flexfield Segments window, check the Freeze Flexfield Definition box to freeze the flexfield.

  13. Save your work.

  14. If necessary, customize the Argentine Receivables Sales Documents Duplicates Flat File by replacing Attribute15 with the attribute that you enabled.

After you define a descriptive flexfield segment for DGI UOM codes, you can assign DGI UOM codes to Inventory UOM codes.

To assign a DGI UOM code to an Inventory UOM code:

  1. Navigate to the Oracle Inventory responsibility.

  2. Navigate to the Units of Measure window.

  3. Enter or query a unit of measure that you will use in your sales documents.

  4. Navigate to the globalization flexfield for the selected unit of measure.

  5. In the DGI UOM field, enter the DGI UOM code that you want to report for this unit of measure.

Collection Processing Overview

In Argentina, a single collection receipt can contain payments that use more than one payment method, such as a combination of checks and cash.

For example, a single receipt that totals $25,000 might consist of two checks of $10,000 each drawn on different banks, and a cash payment of $5,000:

Example 1

Receipt Total: $25,000

Means of payment: Check 1 - Bank of Boston USD 10,000

Means of payment: Check 2 - Citibank USD 10,000

Cash USD 5,000

Total payment USD 25,000

A collection receipt can also consist of receipts and invoices in several different currencies as shown in this table:

Example 2

Receipt or Invoice Item Amount
Receipt 1 1,000 USD (consisting of 850 USD and 300 pesos)
Receipt 2 3,000 yen (consisting of 100 pesos and USD 50)
Invoice 1 850 USD
Invoice 2 300 pesos
Invoice 3 100 pesos
Invoice 4 50 USD

Oracle Receivables lets you enter separate receipts as one receipt by grouping the receipts together into a receipt package. To group several receipts together into a single receipt package, assign the same receipt package number to all the receipts.

If you use Lockbox to create receipts, Oracle Financials enters the payment batch name as the receipt package number. You can change the receipt package number for these receipts later, if you want.

Assigning Receipt Package Numbers

Use the globalization flexfield in the Receipts window to assign a receipt package number to a receipt. Oracle Receivables groups all the receipts with the same receipt package number into one receipt package.

To assign a receipt package number:

  1. Navigate to the Receipts window.

  2. Enter information for a new receipt.

  3. Navigate to the globalization flexfield.

  4. In the Package Number field, enter a receipt package number. To group this new receipt with a previously entered receipt, enter the same receipt package number that you entered for the previous receipt.

    Note: If you use Lockbox to create receipts, QuickCash copies the payment batch name that was created by Lockbox to the Package Number field. You can change the payment batch name to a receipt package number later, if you want.

  5. Press the OK button.

Transaction Numbering Overview

In Argentina, all transaction numbers have the same format with three segments:

X-9999-99999999

If required by law, you can also print a bar code on each invoice, debit memo, and credit memo. Receivables generates the numeric code to use for printing the required bar code on legal documents.

The Argentine transaction numbering functionality includes these features:

VAT Document Letter

Argentina currently uses the VAT document letters A, B, C, E, and X. The VAT document letter is determined by a combination of the VAT registration status of the company's ship-from location and the VAT registration status of the customer's ship-to location. If the ship-to location is not available, the bill-to location is used.

This table shows an example of how VAT document letters can be used for invoices, debit memos, and credit memos:

Customer VAT Registration Status Company VAT Registration Status: Registered Company VAT Registration Status: Nonregistered, Exempt, or Not Responsible
Registered A C
Non Registered A C
Exempt B C
Export E E

Oracle Receivables uses the VAT document letter X to refer to waybills.

Branch Number

The branch numbering method for the transaction number is defined as either point of sale or product line. A point of sale is where invoices are issued, such as a factory outlet or office. A product line is a group of products or services pertaining to a company. For example, cars and trucks can be two product lines of an automotive corporation.

Your company must decide which method to use. After you choose your branch numbering method in Oracle Financials, you cannot change the method.

This table shows examples of possible branch numbering methods and branch numbers:

Method Four-Digit Branch Number
Single point-of-sale 0001
Single product line 0001
Multiple points-of-sale  
     Point-of-sale 1 0001
     Point-of-sale 2 0002
     Point-of-sale 3 0003
Multiple product lines  
     Product line 1 0001
     Product line 2 0002
     Product line 3 0003

Sequential Number

In Argentina, the eight-digit sequential number is assigned in two ways. You can:

Numeric Bar Code

In Argentina, companies that print their own legal documents are required by law to print a bar code on every Receivables invoice, credit memo, and debit memo. The bar code contains this information:

Receivables calculates and stores a numeric bar code value with each record that you create in the Source and Type Relationships window. See: 7. Define Source and Type Relationships.

Prerequisites

Before you can use DGI document type codes for the numeric bar code, you must:

Setting Up Transaction Numbering

This section describes how to set up transaction numbering. Use this list to help you complete the appropriate steps in the correct order.

Step Setup Task
1 Define the Branch Numbering Method
2 Define VAT Document Letters
3 Define Branch Numbers
4 Assign Branch Numbers
5 Define Transaction Sources
6 Define Order Management Transaction Types
7 Define Source and Type Relationships

1. Define the Branch Numbering Method

Use the globalization flexfield in the System Options window to define the branch numbering method as either point of sale or product line. After you define the branch numbering method, you cannot change the definition.

To define the branch numbering method:

  1. Navigate to the System Options window.

  2. Navigate to the globalization flexfield.

  3. Select either Product Line or Point of Sale from the list of values in the Branch Number Method field.

  4. Press the OK button.

    Note: The remaining fields in the globalization flexfield are not used for transaction numbering. These fields are used for tax treatment. For more information, see Tax Treatment in Argentina.

2. Define VAT Document Letters

Assign VAT document letters to combinations of organization tax condition value and contributor tax condition value for the VAT tax category. These definitions determine which VAT document letter is used for a transaction number.

The organization condition value corresponds to the VAT registration status of your ship-from location, and the contributor condition value corresponds to the VAT registration status of the customer's ship-to location.

For example, in the VAT Document Letter Assignments window, you enter Registered for the organization condition value and Exempt for the contributor condition value. You assign the VAT document letter B to this combination. Later, you enter a transaction that involves your ship-from location with a registered VAT registration status and a customer's ship-to location with an exempt VAT registration status. The VAT document letter B is used for the transaction number based on your definition in the VAT Document Letter Assignments window.

For more tax information, see Tax Treatment in Argentina.

Assigning VAT Registration Statuses to Ship-From and Ship-To Locations

Assigning VAT registration statuses involves these steps:

Prerequisites

Before you can assign VAT document letters to combinations of condition values, you must associate the VAT tax category with conditions and condition values in the Latin Tax Engine. For more information, see Associate Tax Categories with Tax Conditions and Values.

Assigning VAT Document Letters

Use the VAT Document Letter Assignments window to assign a VAT document letter to combinations of organization condition value and contributor condition value for the VAT tax category.

To assign a VAT document letter:

  1. Navigate to the VAT Document Letter Assignments window.

    The Find Tax Category window appears on top of the VAT Document Letter Assignments window.

  2. Select VAT, the tax category that you want to associate the organization and contributor conditions for.

  3. Press the OK button.

Defining Order Management System Parameters, Oracle Order Management Implementation Guide

3. Define Branch Numbers

Define branch numbers for your point-of-sale codes or your product line codes, depending on the branch numbering method you use. If you have only one point of sale or product line, you can use any four-digit code, such as 0000. If you have multiple points of sale or product lines, define a different code for each point of sale or product line, such as 0001 for the first point of sale or product line, 0002 for the second, and so on.

Define branch numbers with the lookup type code JLAR_BRANCH_NUMBER. Use the Lookups window in the Application Developer responsibility to define your branch numbers.

4. Assign Branch Numbers

You assign branch numbers differently depending on whether your branch numbering method is point of sale or product line.

Point of Sale

Use the globalization flexfield in the Transaction Sources window to assign branch numbers to a transaction source. For more information, see Define Transaction Sources.

Product Line

Use the globalization flexfield in the Master Item window or the Standard Memo Lines window to assign branch numbers to a product line. You assign branch numbers to product lines differently depending on whether the product is an item or a service.

For an item, use the globalization flexfield in the Master Item window. For a service, use the globalization flexfield in the Standard Memo Lines window.

To assign a branch number to an item:

  1. Navigate to the Master Item window.

  2. Query the item that you want.

  3. Navigate to the globalization flexfield.

  4. Select the Oracle application that you want from the list of values in the Inventory Item Application field.

  5. Enter the branch number in the Branch Number field.

  6. Press the OK button.

To assign a branch number to a memo line:

  1. Navigate to the Standard Memo Lines window.

  2. Query the memo line that you want.

  3. Navigate to the globalization flexfield.

  4. Enter the branch number in the Branch Number field.

  5. Press the OK button.

5. Define Transaction Sources

A transaction source defines where invoicing activity originates. For example, a manual transaction source means that transactions were manually entered. An imported transaction source means that transactions were automatically entered from a file or another accounting system using AutoInvoice.

Use the Transaction Sources window and the globalization flexfield on the Transaction Sources window to define the transaction sources. You associate the imported transaction source that you create with a branch number and a VAT document letter.

You must associate each manual transaction source that you create with an imported transaction source. This association causes manually entered transactions to synchronize with the number sequence of the imported transaction source. You must define the imported transaction source that you want to associate with a manual transaction source before you define the manual transaction source.

Use the Last Transaction Date and Advance Days fields in the globalization flexfield to control your sequencing. Oracle Receivables uses the Last Transaction Date field to store the last transaction date with this transaction source and prevent transactions from being entered out of sequence. You cannot enter a transaction with a transaction date that is prior to the last transaction date.

Oracle Receivables uses the Advance Days field to prevent transactions from being entered for dates far into the future. For example, if the advance days limit is five, you cannot complete an invoice with a date more than five days from the current date. In summary, you can only enter transactions with a transaction date that is between the last transaction date and the date arrived at by adding the advance days to the current date.

Note: You must enter a CAI Number and CAI Due Date to create the numeric bar code for transactions. If you do not enter a CAI Number and CAI Date, Receivables does not generate a numeric bar code value.

Note: Guarantees, deposits, and chargebacks must not be included in the number sequences for invoices, debit memos, and credit memos. If you use guarantees, deposits, and chargebacks, you should use different transaction sources for these transactions than the transaction sources that you use for invoices, debit memos, and credit memos.

To define an imported transaction source:

  1. Navigate to the Transaction Sources window.

  2. Navigate to the Batch Source tabbed region.

  3. Enter a name for the transaction source in the Name field.

  4. Enter a source description in the Description field.

  5. In the Type field, select Imported from the list of values.

  6. Check the Automatic Transaction Numbering check box.

  7. Navigate to the globalization flexfield.

  8. Leave the Imported Source field blank.

  9. Enter the branch number for this source in the Branch Number field. If you are using the point-of-sale method, assign the branch number here.

  10. Enter the VAT document letter for this source in the Document Letter field.

  11. Enter a date in the Last Transaction Date field. To use this transaction source, you cannot enter or import a transaction with a transaction date that is prior to this last transaction date.

    After a transaction was entered or imported using this transaction source, Oracle Receivables displays the transaction date of the last transaction with this VAT document letter and branch number combination. You cannot update the Last Transaction Date field for this transaction source anymore.

  12. In the Advance Days field, enter the number of days that a transaction can be entered in advance, as measured from the system date. The Advance Days limit prevents future dated transactions from being assigned numbers out of sequence.

  13. In the Fiscal Printer field, enter Yes to indicate that a fiscal printer issued the sales document.

  14. In the CAI Number field, enter the Printing Authorization Code provided by the Fiscal Authority to be associated with the printed documents. The CAI is defaulted onto the CAI field in the Transactions window GDF for the batch source with an associated CAI and CAI Due Date.

    This field is mandatory to generate a numeric bar code.

  15. In the CAI Due Date field, enter the latest date the company is authorized to print legal documents. A company must always have a current CAI to print legal documents and a new CAI can be requested when necessary. The CAI Due Date is defaulted onto the CAI Due Date field in the Transactions window GDFs for the batch source with an associated CAI and CAI Due Date.

    This field is mandatory to generate a numeric bar code.

  16. Press the OK button.

To define a manual transaction source:

  1. Navigate to the Transaction Sources window.

  2. Navigate to the Batch Source tabbed region.

  3. Enter a name for the transaction source in the Name field.

  4. Enter a source description in the Description field.

  5. In the Type field, select Manual from the list of values.

  6. Navigate to the globalization flexfield.

  7. In the Imported Source field, enter the name of the imported transaction source that you want to associate with this manual transaction source. The manual transaction source uses the same VAT document letter and branch number combination as its associated imported transaction source.

  8. Leave the remaining fields blank.

  9. Press the OK button.

6. Define Order Management Transaction Types

If you are importing orders from Oracle Order Management into Oracle Receivables, define Order Management transaction types in the Transaction Types window.

In the Receivables Transaction Type field of the Finance tabbed region, assign a Receivables transaction type to each Order Management transaction type.

The Receivables transaction type is assigned to a Receivables transaction source in the Source and Type Relationships window and determines the transaction source that is used for the order when the order is imported into Oracle Receivables. For more information, see Define Source and Type Relationships.

Related Topics

Defining Transaction Types, Oracle Order Management Implementation Guide

7. Define Source and Type Relationships

Use the Source and Type Relationships window to associate a transaction type with an imported transaction source from an operating unit. Associating a transaction type with a transaction source allows the transaction type to use that transaction source.

Defining source and type relationships ensures that you cannot use an incorrect numbering sequence for a transaction type. All invoices, debit memos, and credit memos are sequentially numbered, regardless of whether the transactions are imported or manually entered.

If you want to use the same sequence for all transaction types with the same VAT document letter, associate one transaction source with all those transaction types. Otherwise, associate each transaction type with a different transaction source.

Note: You can associate a transaction type with more than one imported transaction source only if all the sources are assigned the same branch number. The VAT document letter assignments can be different.

The Source and Type Relationships window associates each transaction type and imported transaction source combination with the DGI document type code and numeric bar code. Receivables recalculates the numeric bar code each time you update its associated Company CUIT, DGI Document Type code, Point of sale branch number, CAI code, or CAI due date.

The numeric bar code associated with each combination of transaction source and transaction type is copied to the transaction header-level globalization flexfield of the respective invoice, credit memo, or debit memo. In this way, the same numeric bar code is always printed with the same document.

To associate a transaction type with a transaction source:

  1. Navigate to the Source and Type Relationships window.

  2. Query or enter the Transaction Source that you want.

  3. Enter the first Transaction Type Name that you want. Receivables defaults the Description, Invoice Class, and numeric Bar Code, and checks the Enabled box.

  4. Repeat step 3 for all the transaction types that you want to associate with this transaction source.

  5. If you want to disable a source and type relationship, uncheck the relevant check box.

Defining DGI Currency Codes

On the Argentine Receivables Sales flat file and the Argentine Receivables Sales Documents Duplicates flat file, you must list the DGI currency code corresponding to the transaction currency. The DGI publishes the list of currency codes. Use the globalization flexfield in the Currencies window to define the DGI currency code for each currency.

To define a DGI currency code:

  1. Navigate to the Currencies window.

  2. Enter or query the currency that you want.

  3. Navigate to the globalization flexfield.

  4. In the Currency Code field, enter the DGI currency code for the currency.

Argentine Receivables AutoInvoice Batch Source Update Program

Use the Argentine Receivables AutoInvoice Batch Source Update program to update transaction sources from other systems with a transaction source defined in the Source and Type Relationships window. The program updates the transactions imported into the RA_INTERFACE_LINES Receivables interface table.

Note: Use this program only if you are using the point-of-sale branch numbering method.

In the Source and Type Relationships window, transaction types are linked with transaction sources. The Argentine Receivables AutoInvoice Batch Source Update program uses the Receivables transaction type that is assigned to the imported transaction to determine the related transaction source. This transaction source is used to replace the transaction source of the imported transaction.

When you run the Argentine Receivables AutoInvoice Batch Source Update program, the Argentine Receivables AutoInvoice Batch Source Update report is automatically generated. The report displays the imported transaction numbers with errors as well as the records that are successfully updated.

Oracle Assets

Inflation Adjustment Overview

In Argentina, companies adjust the cost, accumulated depreciation, and year-to-date depreciation expense amounts of their assets for inflation. You can report historical amounts for your assets as well as inflation-adjusted amounts by choosing the historical/adjusted option in Oracle Assets. The historical/adjusted option lets you maintain and report both historical amounts and inflation-adjusted amounts by using two separate depreciation books. Keep the historical amounts in a corporate book and the inflation-adjusted amounts in a tax book.

Note: You can implement the Multiple Reporting Currencies (MRC) feature while using the historical/adjusted option in Oracle Assets by using the historical book as your MRC primary book. You must not use the adjusted depreciation book as your MRC primary book because the inflation adjustment transactions must not be included when MRC converts your transactions to another currency. Using the historical book as your MRC primary book ensures that you maintain only the correct transactions in your MRC reporting book.

Using Asset Groups

You must report your asset information organized by asset group. Oracle Assets for Argentina lets you define asset groups and assign your asset categories to these asset groups. The Argentine Exhibit of Fixed Assets report provides asset information organized by asset group. For more information, see the Argentine Exhibit of Fixed Assets Report.

One of your asset groups must contain only Construction in Process (CIP) assets. Oracle Assets assigns all CIP assets to this group, regardless of their asset category.

Inflation Adjustment Setup

This section describes how to set up Oracle Assets for Argentina for the inflation adjustment process. Use this list to help you complete the appropriate steps.

Set Up Depreciation Books

Use the Book Controls window and the globalization flexfield on the Book Controls window to set up your depreciation books for inflation adjustment. You can enable or disable inflation adjustment at depreciation book level. If you enable inflation adjustment for a depreciation book, you can choose to enable or disable inflation adjustment for individual asset categories and assets when you define them. If you disable inflation adjustment for a depreciation book, none of the assets in that book can be adjusted.

To set up depreciation books:

  1. Navigate to the Book Controls window.

  2. Enter a depreciation book.

  3. Navigate to the globalization flexfield.

  4. Enter Yes in the Adjust for Inflation field to enable inflation adjustment for assets in this depreciation book. Enter No to disable inflation adjustment for all assets in this book.

  5. In the Journal Category for Depreciation Expense of Retired Assets field, enter the journal category that you want to use for the journal entries created by the Inflation Adjustment of Retired Assets process.

    After you perform inflation adjustment for this book, you can view information about the most recent inflation adjustment in the next two fields. Oracle Assets displays the period name for the most recent inflation adjustment in the Last Inflation Adjustment Period field, and the revaluation ID for the most recent inflation adjustment in the Last Inflation Adjustment field.

  6. Press the OK button.

  7. In the Book Controls window, navigate to the Calendar tabbed region.

  8. In the GL Ledger field, select the General Ledger ledger that you want to transfer this depreciation book's journal entries to. If you are using the historical/adjusted option in both General Ledger and Oracle Assets, select the historical ledger for your historical book and the adjusted ledger for your adjusted book.

  9. Complete the Allow GL Posting check box according to your depreciation book's requirements. If you are using the historical/adjusted option in both General Ledger and Oracle Assets, check the Allow GL Posting check box for both your historical book and your adjusted book.

  10. Navigate to the Accounting Rules tabbed region.

  11. If you want to allow revaluation in this book, check the Allow Revaluation check box.

  12. If you want to revalue accumulated depreciation, check the Revalue Accumulated Depreciation check box.

  13. If you want to revalue year-to-date depreciation, check the Revalue YTD Depreciation check box.

  14. If you want to retire revaluation reserve, check the Retire Revaluation Reserve check box. In Argentina, you usually do not retire revaluation reserve.

  15. If you want to amortize revaluation reserve, check the Amortize Revaluation Reserve check box. In Argentina, you usually do not amortize revaluation reserve.

  16. If you want to revalue fully reserved assets, check the Revalue Fully Reserved Assets check box.

    If you choose to revalue fully reserved assets, enter a life extension factor in the Life Extension Factor field. To maintain the current asset life without extending it, enter 1. You can also enter the maximum number of times an asset can be revalued as fully reserved in the Maximum Revaluations field and enter a life extension ceiling in the Life Extension Ceiling field.

Define Asset Groups

Use the Exhibit of Fixed Assets Groups window to define your asset groups. The asset groups that you define here appear in the list of values in the Asset Group field in the globalization flexfield on the Asset Categories window when you assign your asset categories to asset groups. The asset groups also appear on the Argentine Exhibit of Fixed Assets report.

You must define one asset group as the CIP group. Oracle Assets automatically assigns all CIP assets to this group, regardless of their asset category. You should not assign any asset categories to the CIP group manually.

After you define an asset group, you can use the Exhibit of Fixed Assets Groups window to update or delete the asset group. You can only delete an asset group, however, if no asset categories are assigned to that group.

To define asset groups:

  1. Navigate to the Exhibit of Fixed Assets Groups window.

  2. Enter the names for your asset groups in the Name fields.

  3. Check the CIP Group check box for the asset group that you want to define as your CIP group. You can choose any asset group as the CIP group, but you can only check the CIP Group check box for one asset group at a time.

Set Up Asset Categories

Use the Asset Categories window, the globalization flexfield on the Asset Categories window, and the Default Depreciation Rules window to set up your asset categories for inflation adjustment. In the Asset Categories window, you can specify the revaluation reserve account that you want to use to offset the inflation adjustments for assets in a category in a particular depreciation book.

In the globalization flexfield, you can enable or disable inflation adjustment for the asset category in a particular depreciation book. If you enable inflation adjustment for an asset category in a book, you can choose to enable or disable inflation adjustment for individual assets when you define them. If you disable inflation adjustment for an asset category in a book, none of the assets in that category can be adjusted in that book.

In this way, you can choose to adjust an asset category in one depreciation book while preventing the same asset category from being adjusted in another book. You can also choose to adjust some asset categories in a depreciation book for inflation while preventing other categories in the same book from being adjusted.

If inflation adjustment is disabled for an entire depreciation book, however, none of the asset categories in that book can be adjusted.

Oracle Financials for Argentina also lets you use the globalization flexfield to assign your asset categories to asset groups for the Argentine Exhibit of Fixed Assets report. You can assign several asset categories to the same asset group, but you can only assign each asset category to one asset group.

Oracle Assets automatically assigns all CIP assets to one group, regardless of their asset category. You can choose which asset group to define as your CIP group in the Exhibit of Fixed Assets Groups window. You should not assign any asset categories to the CIP group manually in the globalization flexfield.

In the Default Depreciation Rules window, you can assign a price index to the asset category. The price index is used to calculate the inflation rate for all the assets in this asset category.

To set up asset categories:

  1. Navigate to the Asset Categories window.

  2. Enter an asset category.

  3. Navigate to the General Ledger Accounts region.

  4. Enter a depreciation book in the Book field.

  5. In the Revaluation Reserve field, enter the revaluation reserve account used to offset inflation adjustments for assets in this category.

  6. Navigate to the globalization flexfield.

  7. Enter Yes in the Adjust for Inflation field to enable inflation adjustment for assets in this asset category. Enter No to disable inflation adjustment for all assets in this category.

    If inflation adjustment is enabled for this depreciation book, the Adjust for Inflation field defaults to Yes. Otherwise, the Adjust for Inflation field defaults to No.

  8. Enter the asset group for this asset category in the Asset Group field.

    Note: Do not manually enter the CIP asset group for any category in the Asset Group field. Oracle Assets automatically assigns all CIP assets to this group, regardless of their asset category.

  9. Press the OK button.

  10. In the Asset Categories window, press the Default Rules button.

    The Default Depreciation Rules window appears.

  11. In the Price Index field, enter the price index that you want to use to calculate the inflation rate for this asset category.

  12. Enter appropriate information in the remaining fields.
