No tax profile set issue when setting up a receipt activity

Module: Recievables

Oracle Version: Oracle R12

Error Message:

‘Error: Please define a party tax profile for operating unit 99.’

Cause of Issue:

The issue is caused because there is no Tax Profile set for the operating unit that you’re trying to set your receivables activities up for.


Unless you are sure as to what your tax profile is going to be, there is no need to set anything up other to just save an empty tax profile for your operating unit.

In the tax manager responsibility
Go to the Party Tax Profile (Tax Manager > Parties > Party > Tax Profile)

Party Type = Operating Unit Owning Tax Content.
Choose your OU, then click ‘Go’.

Click the ‘Create Tax Profile’.
Then DO NOTHING apart from click ‘Apply’.

Repeat for all your OU’s.
