Validating Data and Metadata

Tax Provision provides two types of validation for applications:

  • Data Integrity validations

  • Metadata validations

Data Integrity validations are configured in the system to ensure that the calculation is valid. For example, the Current Provision and Deferred Provision should equal the total Effective Tax Rate (ETR).

Metadata validations ensure that the metadata setup is valid. Each new account added to the application should have valid CustomTopMembers for a valid intersection.

You can also build additional customized validations specific to the application. The customized validation can be added into a rule file or designed as part of Process Control. This should be considered during the design of the application.
