    MX Withholding tax - 2/3 of VAT amount - Is it possible to provide a WTH tax on a tax line?


    we need to create a WTH Tax for two thirds of the VAT amount. We expected to have a WTH tax fiel to be provided on the tax line (not only on the invoice item line).

    How can we do this?

      Are you going to pay that withholded vat amount to TAX authorities? Or are you recording this as an expense?

    • Mario Cura Barba

      Hello Alexey,

      Mexico will report it to the tax authorities.

      hmm.. never done this combination for VAT and Withholding taxes together. Meaning that Withholding would be based on VAT tax amount.

      Maybe you can check this feature: Compounding Level Controls: Allow cross regime compounding.You have to activate it at regime level.
      I used it earlier this for standard taxes but not for combining standard and not sure if this would work.

      Otherwise you could just make the amount for Withholding to be as VAT Tax Rate * 2/3 and then you would apply the same rules as in VAT tax caclculation to apply Withholding tax similarly as VAT...

      Allow cross regime compounding

      Option that controls whether cross regime compounding is needed for this tax regime



      Controls whether this tax regime is compounded based on the tax calculated from another tax regime

        Agree with the above comments Alexey.

        Have not seen this requirement. I did find this note on Oracle support that might be of use. I know it EBS but the logic will still apply I am sure. (1622896.1)

      Hi Mario, this is possible via a withholding tax applicability rule where the tax determining factor class is 'tax derived factor'. I've set this up for several countries (e.g. Pakistan). If still required, I can explain further.
