SFI 53 - which FDR should be used for sampling FORM D/F?

Hello,

 

This issue has been reported trough Spira, but we were advised to open an issue on SIS forum.

 

We can't validate a sampling FORM D/F file as we use a different way of calculation - we are obviously using a different month for FDR than expected by SIS. The result is that a file can't be validated. Here is the story:

 

SFI 53 – Element No 53 - Total Amount from Form B(s)

 

will be validated against the sum of

 

SFI 54 – Element No  15 - Provisional Invoice Amount in Billing Currency(1)

+

SFI 54 – Element No  25 - Provisional Invoice Amount in Billing Currency(2)

+

SFI 54 – Element No  35 - Provisional Invoice Amount in Billing Currency(3)

+

SFI 54 – Element No  45 - Provisional Invoice Amount in Billing Currency(4)

 

Currency of Evaluation for all coupons is USD.

Currency of Billing is EUR.

 

In SFI 54 our system converts from listing to billing currency by using the FDR of Form A/B transaction month.

However in SFI 53 the Element No 53 is calculated by using the FDR of Form D/E transaction month.

Result: the validation will never be passed.

 

We think that our way of calculating and using Form A/B transaction month FDR instead of using Form D/E transaction month FDR is correct and that this amounts can’t be compared. We also think that our way of calculation is in accordance with IATA RAM rule A12 1.4.3. Note 3.

 

We need to get a clear answer about this issue as this will have to result either to accept our way of calculation or to make some major changes in our Sampling module.

Hi Robert,

 

Please find the following as what is reflected in the Spira Test Management tool:

 

The validation between SFI 53 – Element 53 should be equal to the sum of all “Provisional Invoice Amount in Billing Currency” fields of the SFI 54 will work if the process is followed as defined below:

 

SFI 54 – Amount should be populated as per the Prov Billing months exchange rate

SFI 53 - Element 53: This amount should also use the Prov Billing months exchange rate and not the Sample Form DE Invoice transaction month’s exchange rate. Using the Sample Form DE Invoice transaction month’s exchange rate is incorrect.

 

Best regards
