Projects:Price Inclusive of Taxes/Functional Specification

Contents

Price Inclusive Of Taxes

Overview

Price inclusive of Taxes feature lets you maintain prices inclusive of taxes in pricelists - and splits the total price into basic sales price and the tax components while posting into the GL

Purpose

Openbravo ERP has an indicator in pricelist, wherein it is possible to indicate that the price-list is inclusive of taxes. However this functionality is not continued on to the transaction screens of procurement and sales. This is a critical functionality, especially in the retail industry, where prices ( inclusive of taxes ) needs to be published

Scope

  1. When "inclusive of taxes" price is selected in any of the transaction screens that include prices ( typically quotation, order and invoice screens ) then the Gross Unit Price ( inclusive of taxes ) as well as the Net Unit Price should be shown. Taxes should be calculated based on the net price. Another field Line Gross Amount should be shown
  2. When transactions are posted ( accounting entries generated ) the sale/purchase transaction should reflect the net price and the receivable/payable transaction should reflect the gross price.

Documentation updated Price list

Design Considerations

The functional component - that is mapping a price inclusive of tax to the price before tax , is identical irrespective of whether the functionality is required at the time of creation of purchase or sales order , or purchase and sales invoice - so this functionality will be implemented separately.

Functional Requirements

Business process definition

  1. Price list window
    1. Ability to mark a price list as its prices definition includes taxes
    2. Ability to create price list version based on Gross Unit Price
    3. Ability to define the Gross Unit Price per each product
    4. Unit Price, List Price and Price Limit can be now gross or net prices depending on
  2. Price List Schema window
    1. The ability to create a new price list version depends on the price list schema meaning that we need to add several fields related to the gross unit price similar to Net Unit Price
  3. Transactional windows
    1. All transactional windows will have two more fields: Gross Unit Price and Line Gross Amount
    2. When selecting the product the system retrieves the gross price
    3. All processes that creates invoices based on orders must take into account the field Gross Unit Price
    4. All processes that copy orders/copy line orders must take into account the field Gross Unit Price
  4. Rounding issues
    1. For sales/purchase orders the rounding differences will be calculated and applied to the highest tax amount
    2. For sales/purchase invoices the rounding differences will be calculated and new tax line will be created to correct the difference. This tax will be the highest tax amount

Functional requirements descriptions

In this section are described all the functional requirements to fulfill this development.

The aim of this project is to fully support price inclusive taxes. Many flows are affected by this functionality since pricing is a critical part of any procurement/sales flow.

Configuration price list window

The first thing to develop is to be able to define a price that includes taxes. To do so it will be enough to define just one price per each product. Right now it is possible to define three different Net Prices (Unit price, List price and Limit price) when taxes are not included. But because of this project we will rename the name of these fields to be used when price include taxes. Openbravo also allows you to create different price lists based on another price list but applying a price list schema. The name of these fields will be modify as well.

Configuration of transactional windows

In Procurement/Sales flow (orders/invoices) a couple of fields will be added. When the price list selected in the header of the document is defined as include taxes then these two new fields will be shown in the lines. Net Unit Price will be not editable and it will be calculated based on the Gross price and the tax contained in the line. When the price list does not include taxes the current functionality should remain as it is

Rounding issues

Due to this (Net amount vs Gross amount) a very important issue needs to be addressed in this project which is rounding differences.

As an example : If price inclusive of tax is originally 135.50 and rate is 4.5 % then the rounded price before tax would be 129.67

The order line would stay:

Quantity: 1 Net Unit Price: 129.67 Line Net Amount: 129.67 Gross Unit Price: 135.50 Line Gross Amount: 135.50

But the total gross amount (calculated by the system) would be 135.51 (tax base amount:129.67 + tax amount:5.84) and what it has to be clear is that the final result must be 135.50 (The customer bought 1 unit which price is 135.50). This difference is going to be solved adjusting taxes:

Adjust for Sales/Purchase Order

The system will adjust the difference summing or subtracting this difference with the tax that has the highest amount. So in this example instead of having a tax line where the amount is 5.84€, the amount will be 5.83€ (5.84-0.01)

So finally the total gross amount for the sales order would be 135.50 (129.67+5.83) which is what we want

Technical description for orders

The current tax implementation for orders:

Taking into account the steps described above. The adjustment will be done just before the last step. Once all order line taxes and order taxes have been calculated following the standard procedures. So, just after the C_OrderLineTax_Insert procedure is executed it has to be checked if some rounding is needed. The taxes have been calculated using the Line Net Amounts of the Order Lines. And might not match the gross amounts defined by the price list. At this point it is possible to calculate the tax amounts, summing the tax amount of the order taxes. And based on the gross amount of the lines it is possible to get the desired tax amounts. If there is a difference it is adjusted the c_ordertax record with the higher tax amount

Adjust for Sales/Purchase Invoice

The same as Orders. So finally the total gross amount for the sales order would be 135.50 (129.67+5.84-0.01) which is what we want

Technical description for invoices

In case of the invoices we can follow a similar approach than with the orders. The current process is analogous to the order flow.

The way to get this -0.01 would be summing all the Line Gross Amount per different Tax and subtracting from the sum of all the line net amounts. This way you get the desire tax amount. When it is different from the calculated tax amount then we have the rounding issue

Generate invoices

Everything will remain exactly as it is with the exception of Customer schedule after delivery invoice rule. For this specific case sales orders will be grouped either by price lists that include taxes or don't include taxes. What we won't allow is to mix lines that belong to sales orders that include taxes and orders that don't include taxes

Create lines from - Invoices

The behaviour of this button has been changed.

Copy from Order

The behaviour of this button has been changed.

Copy lines - Invoice

Copy lines - Order It shows lines depending on the price list of the header, I mean, if includes taxes then show lines that comes from order that included taxes. If not then only shows lines that comes from orders that didn't include taxes. Depending on this will show gross prices or net prices

P&E button in Return to vendor and Return from customer
