TCA Security by Functional Areas A new user interface presents a clear distinction between the suppliers company details and terms and controls for the trading relationship. Managing the attributes specific to particular functional areas such as Oracle Payables, Purchasing and Receiving can be controlled with the use of Function Security. You can add new locations or relationships with additional operating units You can modify a quick update page with those values most often updated for faster maintenance Additional tax and legal registrations provide key information to meet reporting and compliance needs The new supplier UI also includes a Survey section that provides administrators with access to the results of questionnaires that the supplier has been asked to complete, either during selfregistration or as part of profile maintenance through iSupplier Portal. Purchasing Category assignments further designate the type of goods and services the supplier will provide.

Supplier Bank Accounts

Supplier Bank Accounts

Enhancements to supplier bank accounts include: Removal of some processing restrictions Greater control and security The bank account is tied directly to the trading partner Notification when trying to inactivate a bank account that is associated with unpaid invoices or pay runs that are in process

Supplier Bank Accounts The bank account is tied directly to the trading partner allowing one bank account definition to be leveraged by a supplier trading partner and shared if the trading partner is also an employee or customer. This approach provides for easier and centralized maintenance and security of the bank account information This definition is targeted directly towards trading partner bank accounts leaving internal bank accounts out of the user interface. In other words, the suppliers banking information is entered and assigned right in the Supplier Entry and Maintenance user interface.

Collaboration with Suppliers to Resolve Disputes

Collaboration with Suppliers to Resolve Disputes

Disputes are communicated and negotiations can be suggested to the Supplier Suppliers are able to:
Accept suggested changes Withdraw their invoice Submit a counter proposal Negotiate online via iSupplier Portal

All changes and comments are tracked in Payables

Collaboration with Suppliers to Resolve Disputes Holds on invoices that are a result of differences between the invoiced and planned amounts or quantity result in disputes that must be resolved. Invoices that have been approved by the owner of the purchasing transaction but rejected during the approval process may also be subject to disputes with the supplier. Leveraging workflow notification, disputes are communicated and negotiations can be suggested to the Supplier. Suppliers are able to accept the suggested changes, withdraw their invoice, or submit their counter proposal. The negotiation continues until the issues are finally resolved. Suppliers can also negotiate online via iSupplier Portal. All changes and comments entered during the collaboration are tracked in Payables and can be viewed at any time.

Deferred Recoverability

Deferred Recoverability

Accounting process where tax recovery is reported when the invoice is paid Accrual (and therefore the settlement and/or reporting) of recoverable taxes is delayed due to special tax rules either enforced by the Tax Authority, or allowed with the agreement of the Tax Authority

Deferred Recoverability Deferred Recoverability refers to an accounting process where tax recovery is reported when the invoice is paid. The accrual (and therefore the settlement and/or reporting) of recoverable taxes is delayed due to special tax rules either enforced by the Tax Authority, or allowed with the agreement of the Tax Authority.

Deferred Recoverability Benefits

Deferred Recoverability Benefits

Global Readiness
Adhere to international tax laws

Streamlined Operations, Operational Excellence, and Lower Costs


Automatic accrual of recoverable tax amounts obviates need for manual transfers after payment transactions Propensity for manual error is reduced

Improved Fiscal Discipline


Accounts reflect transactions that have occurred Automated accounting reduces auditing time

Deferred Recoverability Benefits This feature allows you to meet the challenge of adhering to local tax laws that require deferred recoverability whether you need this feature now or plan to expand into new, international markets in the future. Streamlined operations and operational excellence both contribute to lower costs. Automatic accrual means less time spent accruing accounts manually, providing better control over accounting and reducing the propensity for manual errors. Fiscal Discipline is improved as General Ledger accounts reflect transactions that have occurred and automated accounting reduces auditing time

Deferred Recoverability Process Part 1: Set Up and Invoice You must first configure E-Business Tax Service for deferred recoverability and optionally tailor the Subledger Accounting definition if needed for accounting. During Invoice Entry, Validation, and Import, Payables gathers information known as tax drivers that are entered on the invoice header and lines and passes that information to the new e-Business Tax module. Based on these tax drivers and additional information derived by e-Business Tax such as the suppliers party tax profile and buyers and suppliers tax registrations, the engine determines the applicable tax, returns both recoverable and non-recoverable amounts and, in the case of deferred recoverability, the interim tax General Ledger account for recoverable taxes. Payables displays the tax amount in a column on the Invoice Header and in the Summary region, creates the tax lines in the Lines tab, and records the Distributions including the interim recoverable tax account. When the Invoice is Accounted, the interim recoverable tax account is posted to General Ledger.

Deferred Recoverability Process Part 2: Set Up and Payment At payment time, Payables determines if the invoices being paid are subject to deferred recoverability. If so, Payables requests the distribution accounts for the recoverable tax from EBusiness Tax. Payables determines how much is recoverable based on how much of the invoice is paid, then records the amount and corresponding distribution account. When the payment is accounted, the interim recoverable tax account is reversed and the recoverable tax is posted to General Ledger.

Invoice Lines

Invoice Lines

Invoice Lines: Represent goods or services as lines with distributions tied to each line Facilitates the capture and transfer of pertinent information from Oracle Projects and Oracle Assets Enables line level approval and matching between an invoice line and a purchase order shipment pay item

Invoice Lines Oracle Payables incorporates Invoice Lines into the invoice model. Adding Invoice Lines is a key architectural change, which enables Oracle Payables to better model the paper or electronic business document yet maintain key features that exist at the invoice distributions level. Merged into the current invoice transaction business flows, Invoice Lines support the representation of the goods or services as well as tax, freight, and other charges as lines with distributions tied to each line. Additional fields record attributes such as serial numbers and item descriptions. This feature offers the ability for line level approval and matching between an invoice line and a purchase order shipment pay item, or receipt. Furthermore, it facilitates the capture and transfer of additional, pertinent information to and from Oracle Projects and Oracle Assets.

Pay

Payment Requests You can use Payables to disburse funds to a party (a payee) who is not defined as a trading partner in your supplier master. E-Business Suite products, such as Oracle Receivables and Oracle Loans, can submit disbursement requests to Payables, where you can disburse the funds and manage the payment process using the payment management features that are available in Payables. When a disbursement request is submitted to Payables, it is recorded as a payment request. Using payment requests you can: Approve payment requests using the Invoice Approval Workflow Account for payment requests, through Payables' integration with Oracle Subledger Accounting Calculate and manage tax, through Payables' integration with Oracle E-Business Tax Pay and report on payment requests You can submit a payment request from another application, for example, from Receivables to pay a customer for an On Account Credit Memo, or from Loans to disburse funds for a loan, and Payables will verify, account, tax, and approve the payment request. You can track the

Oracle Accounts Payable Effective mm/dd/yy

103460244.doc Rev 1

progress of the payment request in the originating application. Once the payment request is approved, you can report and audit the payment request in Payables. You can only submit a payment request from other applications; you cannot enter a payment request for a payee directly in Payables. The payment request process is as follows: 1. Submit a request to disburse funds from another application, such as Receivables or Loans. Note that you cannot submit a payment request in Payables. 2. Payables automatically creates a payment request, in real-time. 3. Once the payment request is created, you can search for it just as you would search for an invoice. Enter Payment Request in the Type field and enter the payee name in the Trading Partner field. Note that because the payee is not a supplier, do not enter a Supplier Number. 4. If the payment request requires approval, use the Invoice Approval Workflow to approve payment requests. 5. Payables applies holds to the payment request if there are any exceptions. 6. Once the holds are released and the payment request is approved, it can be paid as a single payment or as part of a payment batch. Once the payment request is paid, your auditors can view the request to disburse funds in the originating application and the payment request in Payables. Once you enter a payment request, you cannot delete the payment request or update the payment request fields. If necessary, you can cancel the payment request or void the payment, just as you would for an invoice. Payables notifies the originating application to respond to these actions.

Oracle Receivables Refund Example Here is an example of the business processes surrounding a Refund Request from Oracle Receivables. ABC Company has purchased and paid for 3 Copy Machines. They then decide to return one and ask for a refund. Within Vision Corporation, the Order Management system manages the return and submits a credit memo to Receivables. Vision Corporations Receivables staff verifies that the initial payment was made and that, due to the credit memo, they must initiate a Payment Request to their Payables Department. Next, the Payment Request is submitted for approval, leveraging Oracle Payables Invoice Approval Workflow. The Payables staff may also manage any specific Payables attribute verification issues they may need for successful payment processing. Once the Payment Request is approved and there are no holds, the payment manager has control over all items to be paid including the Payment Request. Once paid, the customer receives the refund. Note: The Vision Corporation Receivables Analyst can view the Refund Status Window at any time.

Funds Disbursement Process- Loans IGNF Foods requests a loan from Vision Loans for $350,000. The loan agent handles the Application Processing, Manage Risk, and follows through with the necessary approvals for the loan. Once the loan is approved, the loan agent can request that the loan be funded, which immediately creates a payment request to Payables. The payment manager has visibility into the payable liabilities, and manages the items to be paid, and has the information available to provide key updates to upper management as needed. If there are no holds, the payment request is paid to the borrower and the loan considered funded. Oracle Loans has its own approval process and does not require Payables invoice approval. Also, tax calculation is not required for loan disbursements.

Enhanced Payment Method Controls Expanded Payment Attribute Availability and Defaulting Configurable Payment Attribute Validation Extensive Format and Reporting Capabilities

Payment Method Controls and Enhanced Payment Information Enhanced Payment Method Controls allow users to control the availability of payment methods by Legal Entity, Operating Unit, Transaction Type, and Foreign or Domestic Currency and Locations. Invoices now include additional payment attributes that can default from the payee or be entered directly by Payables users on the invoice. To further compliment the attribute availability, you can configure attribute validation for items on the invoice and payee to ensure seamless payment processing or in-house check printing and add data integrity to your reports. We have provided extensive format and reporting capabilities giving you the ability to meet your remittance and payment report needs by leveraging XML Publisher.

Payment Method: Document payable attribute that indicates how the payer is going to make the payment The Payment Method, Banking Relationships, and Reporting Requirements drive Payment Method Based Payment Processing including:
Payment attribute validations executed on the invoice to catch errors early Payment attribute validation at payment time based on your processing choices to catch errors before they go out the door Data rich payment instructions and reporting

Key Concepts Payment Method is an attribute on the document payable that indicates how the payer is going to make the payment. However, it is also the basis for determining what payment choices to offer and, based on payment instruction and reporting needs, the payment attributes required to make that process successful.

Enhanced Payment Processing Validation


Configure validation on the Payment Format and Payment Process Profile to meet your business needs Payment Manager can analyze and resolve validation exceptions or Automatically remove the Invoices to resolve issues while keeping payment processing streamlined

Configurable Payment Attribute Validation Description Enhanced Invoice Entry verification is achieved by specifying validations on the Payment Method. Any issues will result in invoices being put on Scheduled Payment holds. This gives Payables personnel the ability to analyze and resolve validation failures at invoice-entry time. Enhanced Payment Processing validation is achieved by specifying validations on the Payment Instruction Format assigned to the Payment Process Profile. The Payables staff member that manages the payment process can specify what they would like to happen to the pay run if validation exceptions for invoice attributes or payment attributes are found during payment processing, then resolve those issues.

Configurable Payment Attribute Validation Payment: Payment Processing Choices Responsibility: Payables Navigation: Payments : Entry > Payments Manager > (T) Templates > (B) Create During the payment process, determine what should happen if validation errors occur. The first choice is if there are document validation errors. There are four options here: Stop the Process For Review allowing you to review the issue and determine if you can correct it or would like to manually remove the invoices with issues. Reject Only Documents with errors this will allow invoices that do not have errors to continue in the payment process. Reject All Documents for the Payee when a document fails this will reject all the documents for the Payee as soon as one invoice fails letting the invoices for other Payees that did not fail validation continue in the payment process. Reject all the Documents in the Payment Process Request, in which case, the payment process will stop and the payment process request will be cancelled.

Stop the Process For Review allowing you to review the issue and determine if you can correct it or would like to manually remove the invoices with issues. Reject Only the Payments with errors allowing others to continue. Reject all Payments in the payment process request, where, just as in the document case, the entire payment process request will be stopped and cancelled. One thing to note here is a special case when Payment Time Withholding is enabled due to withholding thresholds, if validation errors occur, Payables will automatically stop the payment process and cancel the payment process request.

Configurable Payment Attribute Validation Setup Consideration

Configurable Payment Attribute Validation Setup Consideration


When determining how to configure Payment Attribute Validation, consider the Three Models: One Method, One Payment Process Profile (one Payment Instruction Format one set of reports) One Method, Many Payment Process Profiles (each with one Payment Instruction Format one set of reports) Many Methods, One Payment Process Profile (one Payment Instruction Format one set of reports)

Configurable Payment Attribute Validation Setup Consideration On the previous slide, the steps are sequential. However when considering your payment method and formatting definitions, evaluate all three together. There are three models you can consider. The first is One Payment Method to One Payment Process Profile in other words, one payment method one payment instruction format and one set of reports. In this case, you can determine how much validation you would like up front on your invoices or later at payment time equally based on your Payables staffing. The second model, One Payment Method to many Payment Process Profiles , needs to be reviewed based on the collective Payment Instruction and reporting needs. This model means that the actual Payment Process Profile will not be determined until payment time. Based on the differences between the back end formats, you can determine just how much can be validated upfront on the invoices. The third model is Many Payment Methods to One Payment Process Profile. In this model, you can again determine how much validation you would like upfront on your invoices or later at payment time equally based on your Payables staffing since you can assign format validation per payment method. All setup options for validation are available via the Payment Administrator menu.

Self Assessed Tax Description

Self Assessed Tax Description

Self assessed taxes are taxes which need to be reported but are not a liability to the supplier The purchaser is responsible for calculating and remitting the tax

Self-Assed Tax - Description Self Assessed tax differs from regular taxes in one way: as a purchaser, you are responsible for reporting and paying the tax and the supplier is not. This was also known as USE TAX in previous releases. For example: You receive an invoice for $1000 which is due to be paid to the supplier. Tax A for 10% was not charged on the invoice however, as the purchaser, you recognize that you are responsible to pay tax A. You would self-assess Tax A for the $100 and include it in your filings to the corresponding tax authority.

Self Assessed Tax Predetermined Process During Invoice Entry, Validation, and Import, Payables gathers information known as tax drivers entered on the invoice header and lines and passes that information to the new EBusiness Tax module. Based on these tax drivers and additional information derived by E-Business Tax such as the suppliers party tax profile and buyers and suppliers tax registrations, the engine determines if any self assessed tax is applicable to the invoice. The self assessed tax will be passed back to Payables along with the recoverable and nonrecoverable tax amounts and the General Ledger Accounts for the recoverable tax and self assessed liability. Payables displays the self assessed tax amount in a column on the Invoice header in the Invoice Workbench. Payables will also derive the accounts for the non-recoverable portion of the self assessed tax then store all accounts to be used later when the invoice is accounted. When the Invoice is Accounted, the self assessed tax and corresponding self assessed tax liabilities will be accounted along with the rest of the invoice.

Just like the first example, Payables gathers tax drivers entered on the invoice header and lines and passes that information to the E-Business Tax module. Based on these tax drivers and additional information derived by E-Business Tax, the engine calculates the tax that is expected to be paid to the supplier (in other words: Non-self assessed taxes) From the Tax Summary Window, the Payables user marks the tax as self assessed. EBusiness Tax updates their records and returns the tax details to Payables. Payables stores the GL Accounts, displays the self assessed tax amount in a column on the Invoice header and the validated invoice is ready for accounting.

The total tax has been classified as the tax we are expecting to pay the supplier on the invoice header. Note that the Invoice Amount is only for $1,000.00. In other words, the suppliers invoice did not include the $50.00 tax.

By automating retainage and financing recoupment, tolerance checking, and self billing options for approved work, there is less to worry about when auditing these functions. Workflow processing for approval and holds resolution provide a means of representing your processing procedures in the Payables application. Again, an auditing win particularly with complete approval and holds resolution history visible from the Invoice Workbench. Real-time update of the purchase order, adherence to budgetary controls through funds checking and encumbrance accounting, accounting and tax reporting provide important business intelligence and transparency into your business. Automating many items in the invoice area also reduces the cost of invoice processing and the opportunity for errors which may result in overpaying your suppliers.

Progress Payment Schedule


Represents a schedule of services and work with associated payments

Progress Payments
Payments for progress made on a Progress Payment Schedule

Pay Item
Refers to a specific work/service component of the Progress Payment Schedule, and its associated payment amount

Complex Contract Terms Key Concepts A Progress Payment Schedule is an industry term that represents a schedule of services and work components required to complete a complex services contract. Each of these service components is typically associated with payments. Specifically in the Construction Industry, the Progress Payment Schedule is also referred to as the Schedule of Values. Progress Payments are payments released for work partially or fully completed on a Progress Payment Schedule. Pay Items refers to a specific work or service component of the Progress Payment Schedule. It describes the work or service that needs to be completed, and the payment amount associated with that work or service. So a Progress Payment Schedule basically consists of several pay items. Pay Items can be of different types they can be based on rate of work or service being delivered, or based on a lump sum amount for a service, or they can even be based on a event or milestone on the contract

Progress Payment Rate


Used on Cost Reimbursement Contract. Represents the rate at which costs incurred by the Contractor are reimbursed

Contract Financing
Typically used in Public Sector Contracts. Contract financing is paid based on work performed or cost to date. If the contractually specified performance or cost milestones are met, financing is given to aid in the completion of subsequent work

Complex Contract Terms Key Concepts Progress Payment Rate - a payment term used on cost reimbursement contracts. On these contracts progress payments released to the Contractor are based on the costs incurred by the contractor during the execution of the contract. The progress payment rate is used on these contracts to compute the reimbursement amount based on the cost incurred by a contractor. The Progress Payment Rate is usually negotiated between the Buying Organization and the Contractor. Financing is often used on Public Sector Contracts. Contract financing is paid based on work performed or cost to date. If the contractually specified performance or cost milestones are met, financing is given to aid in the completion of subsequent work prior to the delivery of the contract line item.

Oracle Procurement to Payables: High Level Business Flow The contractor now performs work on the progress payment schedule and periodically reports progress and requests payment either in the form of a Work Confirmation or an Invoice. These documents state the amount of work completed on different components of the progress payment schedule, and usually need to be approved by designated individuals like Engineers, Project Managers or Architects on the clients side before any payment can be released. Once the work confirmation is approved, the contract is updated with the progress made. If the work is accrued, this information is also updated on the Project which allows the Project Manager to view actuals and commitments for this specific portion of work along with the rest of the work against the Project.

Previous financing payments, if any, can be recouped, and applicable retainage can be withheld before a payment is made to the contractor. Alternatively, if the contractors invoice is for contract financing payments, these can be released and tracked as such on the contract so that they can be recouped subsequently from invoices for services deliveries.

Oracle Payables: Tolerances and Holds Fixed Price Services: Lump Sum Pay Items = Amount Based Tolerance Checking - For Fixed Price PO lines, use the Services template assigned to the supplier site when the Pay Items are Lump Sum. Fixed Price Services: Rate Based Pay Items = Quantity Based Tolerance Checking - For Fixed Price PO lines, use the Goods template assigned to the supplier site when the Pay Items are Rate based. While the template is called Goods, it represents Quantity Based matches.

Milestone Pay Items have Zero Tolerance Quantity Based Quantity must be a whole quantity Price and Amount exact Amount Based Amount must be exact

Oracle Payables: Tolerances and Holds Milestone Pay Items are unique. They represent a specific point in the contract and any tolerance is not acceptable. In other words, milestone pay items are not compared with a tolerance template. Payables will place a Milestone hold for Goods if the price and amount are not exact or if the quantity billed is over the quantity ordered. The bill cannot be for a partial quantity such as .5. Payables will allow for less, whole quantities to be billed, however, the price and amount must be exact or a hold will be placed. For Fixed Price Services, the amount must be exact anything less or more will have a hold placed.

Enable Hold Notification per Hold Set Notify and Reminder Days Add instructions to appear on the workflow notification

Includes two options:


Release the hold Acknowledge the issue

Oracle Payables: Holds Notification Options Payables has introduced a new Holds Resolution Workflow in R12. This feature enables you to release any hold that can be manually released. The Notify After days allows a period of time to see if the hold on the invoice resolves itself. For example, a Quantity Received hold may resolve itself when a receipt is recorded. The workflow notification includes two options release the hold; acknowledge the issue. By choosing acknowledge, the person being notified is expected to take some action such as enter a change to the PO for a Price hold. The Remind After Days will send a reminder to this person if the hold is still on the invoice after they first acknowledged the issue. The Hold Instructions entered here will appear on the notification to provide instructions to the person being notified. This history of any actions that are done through this workflow are updated and available for viewing from Payables Invoice Workbench, Tools.

Oracle Procurement Setup Responsibility: Purchasing Navigation: Setup:Purchasing > Document Styles The profile option POR: Amount Based Services Line Type specifies how services are to be quantified and ordered on the transaction document. In order to use the Complex Services functionality, the value for this profile option should be set to Fixed Price Services, which means that services will be ordered as an amount. You can find this setup via the System Administrator responsibility under System Profiles. The Purchase Order Document style is key. It defines the basic document rules of the Complex Work Purchase Order. A Document Style builds additional functionality on the Document Type and provides the user the flexibility to tailor purchasing transaction documents like Orders and Agreements by exposing or suppressing specific features such as line types and complex payment term details. Document Styles allow control regarding which commodities are purchased on the order. You can setup specific document styles for the purchase of goods and have a separate document style for the purchase of services.

Styles also allow flexibility to use Progress Payments, Contract Financing and Advances, and Retainage on a contract. There is also a checkbox that allows the Progress Payment Schedule to be treated as Contract Financing.

Payables Setup: Financial Options Responsibility: Payables Navigation: Setup:Options > Financial Options You can define one retainage account for the Operating Unit which Payables uses to record the distribution account on progress invoices and subsequent retainage release invoices for funds withheld from suppliers doing business with the organization. The retainage distribution account on the invoice is used in the seeded accounting setup in Subledger Accounting. Historically the prepayment account entered here would default to the supplier site and be used when creating prepayments for the supplier. However, the new Advances and Contract Financing prepayments introduced with this solution will use the distribution account on the Purchase Order and not the supplier site. If you plan on using encumbrance review the Encumbrance options for Purchasing in the Encumbrance tab. For Payables, Encumbrance options are defined in Subledger Accounting.

For example, you can select invoices across operating units for payment processing within a single pay run. A security profile determines a users set of accessible Operating Units. Enhanced Multi-Org Reporting Run several Payables reports at ledger or ledger set level

Multi-Org Access Control in Payables Description MOAC is an enhancement to the Multiple Organizations feature of Oracle Applications. MOAC allows a user to access data from one or many Operating Units while within a given responsibility. In prior releases, each responsibility was linked to one and only one Operating Unit. Data security is maintained using security profiles that are defined for a list of operating units and determine the data access privileges for a user. Multi-Org Access Control also provides a basis for use to expand the scope of some of our standard reports. Reports such as the Posted Payments Register now run for a ledger and include transaction data for all OUs that are part of that ledger. There is now an exposed OU field for all transactions and setup data that is not shared across operating units, like Payables Options. On data entry, OU will be derived by the system, when possible. For example, if a user enters a PO default invoice, the supplier site will determine the OU. A user can submit concurrent programs for all operating units or one operating unit. To submit a concurrent program for all operating units, leave the Operating Unit parameter

blank. Oracle Payables will process data for that users set of accessible Operating Units, as determined by their Multi-Org Security Profile, defined in Oracle HRMS. The following Payables reports can now be run across multiple OUs: Posted Invoice Register, Posted Payments Register, and the Open Account Balances Listing (formerly known as the Trial Balance). When a user submits one of these reports, they can select a ledger or ledger set in the Ledger/Ledger Set parameter. Oracle Payables will include data for all Operating Units for which the user has access, as determined by their Multi-Org Security Profile, belonging to that Ledger/Ledger Set. All other Payables Standard Reports now have an OU parameter that is mandatory and will set the context for that run of the report.

Multi-Org Access Control in Payables Benefits

Multi-Org Access Control in Payables Benefits

Increase Efficiency
Shared Service Center employees can be more efficient because they can process transactions for multiple Operating Units.

Reduce Costs
Reporting costs are reduced since users can submit standard reports for multiple OUs as well as submit certain reports that gather data from multiple OUs.

Improve Timeliness and Accuracy of Information


MOAC adds to the timeliness and accuracy of information by providing a consolidated view of data across Operating Units, eliminating the need for manual aggregation.

Multi-Org Access Control in Payables Benefits Multi-Org Access Control enables companies that have implemented a Shared Services operating model to efficiently process business transactions by allowing them to access, process, and report on data for an unlimited number of operating units within a single applications responsibility. This increases the productivity of Shared Service Centers, as users and processes no longer have to switch applications responsibilities when processing transactions for multiple operating units at a time.

Do this setup once and all applications will be setup for MOAC. Payables Process includes: Setting up processing options, like Financials and Payables Options Entering transaction data like Invoices and Payments. Many setup items are not specific to an operating unit, like Payment Terms. You can define Payment Terms once then specify which particular Payment Term is the default for a given Operating Unit and Supplier Site in the new Suppliers Invoice Management form.

Multi-Org Access Control Process, Invoice Entry

There is now an OU field on the Invoice Workbench Select an Operating Unit, or enter another field, such as PO or Supplier Site, from which the system will default the OU The application automatically provides the operating unit of new (uncommitted) invoices during entry.

Multi-Org Access Control Process, Invoice Entry Responsibility: Payables Navigation: Invoices:Entry > Invoices On the Invoice Workbench, you can select an Operating Unit, or enter another field, such as PO or Supplier Site, from which the system will default an OU. Your list of available OUs is determined by your multi-org security profile defined in Oracle HR and associated to their responsibility through the MO Security Profile profile option. The application automatically provides the operating unit of new (uncommitted) invoices during entry. The following are methods by which the operating unit is derived: Default Operating Unit from MO: Default Operating Unit Profile Option Default Operating Unit from Invoice Batch Header - When entering invoice batches, users have the option of establishing a default operating unit for the invoices entered in the batch. This can be overridden at the invoice level as with any other value (Payment Method, for example) entered in the Invoice Batches window. Derive Operating Unit from Transaction Attributes

- Oracle Payables will derive the operating unit of an invoice based on certain user entered attributes. If the user chooses a PO (via PO Default or QuickMatch features) or supplier site when the Operating Unit field is empty, the Operating Unit corresponding to the selected value will be populated onto the invoice. Set Operating Unit from Single Operating Unit Security Profile - When a users security profile contains only one operating unit, it can be said that the users operating unit context has been set to this operating unit. This value is automatically defaulted to all new invoices and it cannot be overridden.
