I consider myself one of the leading Oracle R12 eBTax experts around, as it does not matter what module you need tax to be driven from, what country you are rolling out to or how fast you need the solution, there is no one that can touch eBiz Answers and our team for R12 eBTax. We recognized that tax is tax and as such, we brought you a third party tax solution without the need for a third party product with our ‘eBTax Rapid Install™‘ tool that all but eliminated the most time consuming part of eBTax which is the configuration. It took us a long time to develop the eBTax Rapid Install™ and you can imagine our apprehension when we found out several years ago that Fusion Tax comes with inbuilt spreadsheet loaders but as a huge supporter of the eBTax product, it also made a lot of sense and was excited about converting our solution to be loaded via the spreadsheet loaders. Whilst I heard rumors that the loaders were not what they were cracked up to be it was not until i had to start using these spreadsheet loaders that I too side with those that think they are far form perfect and in fact, for eBTax, I would go as far as saying they didn’t work properly right up until release 11. The take more time to figure out and can only load a fraction of the information that you actually need with some frustrating bugs that don’t always do what you think is meant to happen!
So, the good, the bad the ugly, my first thoughts on the Oracle Fusion tax solution.
