21 Copyright © 2005 Ubex Corporation 21 Tax Insights Use payables options to automate the invoice tax calculation Use purchasing tax hierarchy to default tax code in the PO shipments Tax code should reflect Ship-to location Supplier registration status Line type For suppliers registered to collect the tax, pay tax For suppliers not registered to collect the tax, accrue tax

22 Copyright © 2005 Ubex Corporation 22 Our Solution Approach Automatic tax calculation and accrual process based on supplier’s tax registration Provide invoice visibility To suppliers about ERS invoice payments To users about non-processed ERS invoices Controls To track changes made to ERS/non-ERS invoices after it is created To restrict buyers from changing PO from Pay On Receipt process Reports To monitor and manage the automation process

23 Copyright © 2005 Ubex Corporation 23 When can ERS go wrong? Data entry error while creating purchase order Receiving and return-shipment error Inaccurate PO pricing, can result in over payment to supplier Improper tax setup Inadequate discrepancy handling process
