HOW TO CHANGE VAT RATES AND RECOVERABILITY IN ORACLE

HOW TO CHANGE VAT RATES AND RECOVERABILITY IN ORACLE
(Extract from P2P Training Manual pages 51 – 54 December 2010)
1.1
Applying VAT Rates (VAT TREATMENT field)
The default for purchases in Oracle is to add VAT at the Standard Rate, provided the
supplier is registered for VAT in the UK. Accurate supplier set up will ensure VAT is
applied only to relevant suppliers.
If you are applying the standard rate of VAT across the purchase, Oracle will default
this value and there is no input needed from you in iProcurement.
Where purchases are made that have an alternative VAT treatment, the requisition
must be edited on a line by line basis as in the example below.
Guidance on relevant VAT treatment will be available in the VAT Guidance document
to be issued separately or by emailing [email protected]
Important Note:
The standard rate of VAT will rise to 17.5 % on 1st January 2010. This rate will be
adjusted for you in Oracle.
The following example explains how to apply a zero VAT rating to goods bought
against eligible medical equipment; however, the process for selecting other VAT
rates is the same.

Zero Rated VAT Certificates
Zero rated VAT certificates accompany the purchase order in the following manner.
Eligible medical equipment zero VAT rated certificates will be automatically printed
and should be faxed or posted with the purchase order to the supplier.
Zero rated VAT certificates for reagents and charity advertising will be automatically
emailed/faxed with the purchase order to the supplier.
Important Note:
It is possible to add multiple VAT rates to a requisition; however, this is not to be
done if you require a zero rated certificate.
Zero rated certificates cover the whole requisition; therefore, you should not mix VAT
rates if your order requires a certificate.
1.2
Recoverable VAT (Intended Use field)
The default for transactions for Cardiff University is that the VAT element is nonrecoverable. However, if you are notified that the activity you are purchasing for is a
VAT recoverable activity, you must select the relevant option in the Intended Use
field in the Edit Lines screen.
