Tax billing through BM

Hi
 

a. If a BM is raised for Tax billing with a reason code for which coupon breakdown is not mandatory under which record should the tax breakdown get reported. We cannot report it under PAX BM-CM Cpn Tax Brkdwn Record since the document number field is mandatory for this record.

b. In PAX BM-CM Cpn Tax Brkdwn Record element no 8 validation states should be zero filled whereas the format states LJ BF (Left justified Blank fillers). Could you please confirm if we should populate blank filler or it should be zero filled.

Shankar,
 
a. Before we can answer this,  could you please tell us about the business scenario where there is a need to raise a BM for Tax billing that is not related to a coupon?
 
b. This was an error. This field should be populated with the BM CM number of the parent record. This has been fixed in ISPG 3.1
 
Best regards

Dear Ashley
 

Unable to think of a business scenario where there will be a need to raise a BM for Tax billing that is not related to a coupon.

However if a carrier selects reason code 8Z- Others for BM for which coupon breakdown is not mandatory, under which record should the tax breakdown get reported.  If we still bill tax, will it get identified as error during SIS validation

Shankar,

 

In case of Reason code ‘8Z’, the carrier is free to raise a BM and bill Tax amounts. However there is no tax breakdown record at a BM level which the carrier can use to provide Tax breakdown information. This can be included in the Reason description area as a textual information and passed on to the billed carrier OR the carrier can provide a coupon breakdown and list the tax breakdown in the BM-CM Coupon Tax breakdown record.

 

There won’t be any validation error in case tax amounts are billed using reason code ‘8Z’ and no Tax breakdown record is provided. On the contrary, if a BM is  billed for tax amounts and a tax breakdown record is provided at a BM level then it will result in a Validation error.

 

Hope this helps.
Best regards
