|Oracle Financials for the Americas User Guide|
Part Number E13422-03
The Oracle Financials for the Americas User Guide provides region-specific and country-specific information about using the Oracle E-Business Suite. Because many features of E-Business Suite run from core applications, you should use this guide in conjunction with your product-specific documentation.
This guide provides information about using:
Oracle Financials for Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, and Mexico.
Features that meet regional and country-specific requirements.
Features in Oracle E-Business Suite for the countries in the Americas region.
In Oracle E-Business Suite Release 12, the core applications manage many features that were previously managed at the regional and country level. Please refer to your product-specific documentation for information about these features in Oracle Financials for the Americas:
Use the Legal Entity Configurator to set up legal entities and legal establishments to represent your company and its divisions and offices, and to set up and maintain related company information, including locations, classifications, and legal registrations.
Company tax information
Use E-Business Tax to set up and maintain first party tax profiles and tax registrations for the legal establishments in your company.
Use E-Business Tax to set up and maintain the tax configuration for VAT and other non-withholding taxes, including tax regimes, taxes, statuses, rates, jurisdictions, product and party classifications, and tax rules.
Important: Do not use E-Business Tax to set up tax regimes and taxes for use with the Latin Tax Engine. Use Latin tax categories, tax codes, and tax groups for LTE tax calculation purposes. Additionally, use the standard Withholding functionality instead of E-Business Tax to setup Payables Withholdings or Latin American Withholdings.
Customer and supplier tax information
Use E-Business Tax to set up and maintain third party tax profiles for your customers and suppliers.
