    The ER has no ETA and there must be many customers who need to address these orders that have tax implications

    Does anyone have a viable workaround for this pending ER?

    User should be able to select line type of 'Fixed Price Services' and still be able to specify Quantity and Unit Price (as if the line type was 'Goods'). 

    Currently, purchasing IT services are done and billed in quantity.

    Requirement is even though purchasing a service and not the goods, to be able to define Unit Price corresponding
    to Invoicing for a day of service (for example Senior IT consultant)

    Create BPA line for IT services with
    - Standard purchasing line with code = Goods
    - Purchase Basis = Goods

    Service purchasing must be done in quantity.
    As the "product type" is derived from the purchasing line type, on the PO line, value is equal to the goods (and not services) : it can impact E-tax calculation.

    It seems that Purchase Basis information drive two information at the same time : purchasing in quantity or amount, purchasing in goods or service, so how to manage services purchasing in quantity ?

    NB: more than 60-70 % of purchase order are automatically created (the aim is 80%)

    Other example when requester try to create Noncatalog Request, he can choose between to standard line type :
    Goods or services billed by amount : "product type" automatically derived = service
    Goods or services billed by quantity : "product type" automatically derived = goods

    Users can not create a Noncatalog Request with line "Goods or services billed by quantity" and "product type" automatically derived = service.

      We had the same requirement. So we altered line types. Fixed Price Services is a seeded line type, so we could not change the Purchase Basis from Services to Goods. Nor could we end-date it. But we were able to modify the name and description. So we named the Seeded Fixed Price Services Line Type to "ZZZ Do not use". Then we created a new line type and called that "Fixed Price Services" and assigned it Purchase Basis of goods.

      Perhaps this may work for you.

      It appears that the workaround Neelam has provided would in fact meet your use case. Do let know if you have been able to use it.
