Setting Up Country-Specific Taxes

Country Setup Examples

This chapter contains sample tax configuration setup data for these tax regimes:

These examples are intended to demonstrate typical setups, option settings, and interdependencies for each tax regime. They are not intended to provide an example of best practices in all cases. The actual details of your own tax configuration setup will depend on your company's specific internal and legal tax requirements.

United Kingdom Value Added Tax (VAT)

In the United Kingdom, Value Added Tax (VAT) is a tax on consumer expenditure that is charged on most business transactions made in the United Kingdom and the Isle of Man. VAT is also charged on goods and some services imported from places outside the European Union, and on goods and some services coming into the United Kingdom from the other European Union countries.

The current rates for VAT are:

Some goods and services are exempt from VAT. In addition, there is a zero rate for United Kingdom companies that supply goods and services to VAT-registered customers in other European Union Member States, provided the company meets the appropriate conditions.

The example in this section is based on the Customs and Excise Management Act 1979.

Setup Features

This tax setup example is for a first party registered in the United Kingdom and dealing with domestic, intra-EU and extra-EU transactions. Setup features include:

Inventory Category Sets and Category Codes

These Inventory category codes are used to identify goods and services for use in tax rules.

See: Setting Up Oracle Inventory for information about creating Inventory item categories for product fiscal classifications.

Canadian Sales Tax

In Canada, sales taxes exist at the federal level and at the provincial level. Goods and Services Tax (GST) is a federal tax levied in provinces and territories across Canada on many consumer products and professional services. Provincial Sales Tax (PST) varies by province. The tax rates within each province apply to the value of goods or services before GST is applied. The only exceptions are Quebec and Prince Edward Island, where the sales tax applies to the value of goods or services after GST is applied.

A federal and provincial blended tax called Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) is levied in the three participating provinces of Newfoundland and Labrador, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick. The HST operates as a single rate of 14%, of which six percent (6%) represents the federal component and eight percent (8%) the provincial component.

The recovery of tax is made through a rebate and/or an Input Tax Credit (ITC), depending on whether the purchases are intended for commercial or non-profit activities. Some goods and services are exempt from GST and HST, such as health and educational services.

Taxable goods and services are subject to one of the following statuses:

Tax status is generally determined by product. For the consumer, there is no difference between zero-rated and exempt goods and services: the consumer either pays tax or not. Although GST and HST are not charged on zero-rated goods and services, the tax registrant can claim input tax credits to recover the GST or HST paid or owed on purchases and the expenses incurred to provide them.

The example in this section is based on the changes to GST and HST rates effective July 1, 2006.

Examples

This section provides four examples of Canadian tax setup:

Prerequisites

Before you can set up the E-Business Tax tax configuration for these examples, you may need to complete one or more of these tasks:

Tax Regime Setup

There are two tax regimes required for the above examples:

The CA GST HST regime has a compounding precedence of 1; the CA PST regime has a compounding precedence of 2.

Party Tax Profile Setup

The tables below describe the first party legal establishment setup and tax registration setups for Canada, Ontario, and Quebec. For Ontario Example 1, the registration status of the legal establishment is a factor in determining whether the GST and/or PST are applicable. For this example, the registration for this legal establishment will include GST across Canada, PST registration in Ontario, and PST registration in Quebec.

You also need to create party tax profiles for each of the three taxing authorities: Canada Revenue Agency for the GST across Canada, Ontario Ministry of Finance for the Ontario PST, and Ministere du Revenu du Quebec for the Quebec PST. You need to set up each of these tax authorities in the Legal Entity Manager as a legal authority for transaction tax. The tax authorities are all both collecting and reporting tax authorities.

Tax Jurisdiction Setup

Tax jurisdiction setup in Canada requires a separate record for each province. In addition, provinces that apply GST and PST separately require two tax jurisdiction records. Different PST tax rates can apply at the jurisdiction level. Because both GST and PST apply to all transactions, neither jurisdiction takes precedence or is set as a default jurisdiction.

This example shows the GST and PST tax jurisdictions for Ontario.

Tax Rate Setup

This example uses the standard GST rate of 7%. The standard PST for most provinces in Canada is 7%; however, the rate is 7.5% in Quebec and 8% in Ontario. As such, the PST tax rates for Quebec and Ontario will also specify the tax jurisdiction. Additional rates may also apply at the provincial level.

Tax Rule Defaults

Tax rule defaults simplify the tax rule setup and reduce the number of rules by identifying the most common value for each rule type. For example, if GST is applicable on most transactions, then the default value for the rule type Determine Tax Applicability for the tax CA GST is Applicable.

Rule Type Tax Default
Determine Place of Supply CA GST, CA PST Ship To
Determine Tax Applicability CA GST, CA PST Applicable
Determine Tax Registration CA GST, CA PST Ship From Party
Determine Tax Status CA GST CA GST STD
Determine Tax Status CA PST CA PST STD
Determine Tax Rate CA GST CA GST STD RATE
Determine Tax Rate CA PST CA PST STD RATE
Determine Taxable Basis CA GST, CA PST STANDARD_TB
Calculate Tax Amounts CA GST, CA PST STANDARD_TC

Tax Rules Setup - Ontario Example 1

Since you will typically set the tax applicability of a tax as Applicable, you will need to define a Determine Tax Applicability tax rule to identify when a transaction is not applicable for GST and PST. In this particular example, the tax is not applicable when the Ship From Party is Not Registered for the tax, and the transaction is a sales transaction.

Tax Determining Factor Set

This table describes the tax determining factor set to use with this tax rule. This tax determining factor set identifies the registration status of the ship from party and the type of transaction.

Determining Factor Class Class Qualifier Determining Factor Name Required
Registration Ship From Party Registration Status Yes
Transaction Generic Classification   Transaction Business Category Yes

Tax Condition Set

This table describes the tax condition set to use with this tax rule. This tax condition set indicates that the Ship From Party is Not Registered for this tax, and that this rule will apply to Sales Transactions.

Determining Factor Class Class Qualifier Determining Factor Name Operator Value Ignore Condition
Registration Ship From Party Registration Status Equal To Not Registered No
Transaction Generic Classification   Transaction Business Category Equal To Sales Transaction No

If the values of this tax condition set are evaluated as true, then the result of the Determine Tax Applicability rule is Not Applicable.

Tax Rules Setup - Ontario Example 2

Because the taxable basis formula for most transactions is (line amount) * (tax rate), you will need to define a Determine Taxable Basis tax rule to identify when a different taxable basis is needed and which taxable basis tax formula to use. In this example, the taxable basis in Ontario is reduced for the purchase of mobile homes that are used for construction purposes.

Tax Determining Factor Set

This table describes the tax determining factor set to use with this tax rule. This tax determining factor set identifies the shipping destination, the product, and the intended use of the product.

Determining Factor Class Class Qualifier Determining Factor Name Required
Geography Ship To Province No
Product - Non-Inventory Based Level 3 Product Category No
User Defined Geography Ship To CA GST Incl No
Transaction Input Factor   Intended Use No

Tax Condition Set

This table describes the tax condition set to use with this tax rule. This tax condition set indicates that the shipping destination is Ontario, the product is a portable home, and that the portable home it will be used for construction purposes.

Determining Factor Class Class Qualifier Determining Factor Name Operator Value Ignore Condition
Geography Ship To Province Equal To ON (Ontario) No
Product - Non-Inventory Based Level 3 Product Category Equal To
  • CA General Goods and Services

  • CA General Goods

  • CA Portable Homes

No
Transaction Input Factor   Intended Use Equal To CA Construction No

If the values of this tax condition set are evaluated as true, then the result of the Determine Taxable Basis rule is the tax formula CA TB PST ON MOBILE HOME. This formula is used to determine the taxable basis, which results in a 50% reduction in the taxable basis.

Tax Rules Setup - Quebec Example 1

As mentioned above, the taxable basis formula for most transactions is (line amount) * (tax rate). Since the PST in Quebec is calculated on the selling price plus GST, you will need to define a Determine Taxable Basis tax rule to identify when a different taxable basis is needed and which taxable basis tax formula to use.

Tax Determining Factor Set

This table describes the tax determining factor set to use with this tax rule. This tax determining factor set identifies the shipping destination, the product, and the intended use of the product.

This table describes the tax condition set to use with this tax rule. This tax condition set indicates that the shipping destination is either of 2 provinces that apply PST on the sale price plus GST.

Determining Factor Class Class Qualifier Determining Factor name Operator Value Ignore Condition
User Defined Geography Ship To CA GST Incl Equal To CA QC and PE No

If the values of this tax condition set are evaluated as true, then the result of the Determine Taxable Basis rule is the tax formula CA TB GST INCLUDED. This formula is used to determine the taxable basis, which results in PST calculated on the sale price plus GST Note that this tax rule uses the same tax determining factor set as in Ontario Example 2 for tax rule efficiency.

Tax Rules Setup - Quebec Example 2

This tax rule setup identifies when tax recovery is applicable and which tax recovery rate applies. The example refers to setting up a Determine Recovery Rate tax rule for resale transactions in Quebec.

Tax Condition Set

This table describes the tax condition set to use with this tax rule. This tax condition set indicates that the shipping destination is either of 2 provinces that apply PST on the sale price plus GST and that the product is intended for resale.

Determining Factor Class Class Qualifier Determining Factor name Operator Value Ignore Condition

If the values of this tax condition set are evaluated as true, then the result of the Determine Recovery Rate rule is the tax recovery rate CA PST STD REC RATE.

United States Sales and Use Tax

United States Sales and Use Tax is a tax levied on the end consumer, with the business serving as the collection agent for the tax authority. Any company receiving goods within a state must either pay sales tax on receipt or self-accrue a use tax, usually to the same value. The self-accrual scheme ensures that the state receives income independent of the tax registration of the business.

The details of rates and regulations surrounding sales and use tax vary from state to state, and are a matter of state and local law and court cases. Exemptions are normally available in each state, including, but not limited to: resales, manufacturing, research and development, non-profit or exempt organizations, and governmental organizations.

The nexus of taxation refers to the minimum level of commerce necessary to allow a tax authority to impose a tax registration, tax filing, and/or tax collection responsibility. The type of activity required to create nexus is defined by state or local statute, case law, and the due process and Commerce Clause of the United States Constitution. Whether a business has established nexus in a tax jurisdiction requires an assessment of all facts and circumstances of its activity within that jurisdiction. You should seek the advice of a qualified tax professional to determine if your business has established nexus (a registration and filing requirement) before you implement sales tax.

The situs of taxation describes which tax authority levies the tax. This is typically the ship-to state, county, or city, although there are many local taxes that base situs on the ship-from location. Any tax collected for a given tax authority must be reported back to that same authority.
