What to look out for when Localizing Oracle JD Edwards in UK & Ireland

 JDE Localizations in UK & Ireland

Rolling out Oracle JD Edwards internationally is a project which is quite different to a domestic JDE implementation project. The international dimension really does add a layer of complexity and we are faced with challenges which we don’t face in a
“straight-forward” one country roll-out. (You might like to read your blog the ABCs of International JD Edwards ERP Deployments for more on this).

I have been working on international JDE projects in the UK and Ireland for more years than I’d like to say, and I know that the start of an international ERP deployment can be quite daunting. So, in a bid to put your mind at ease, I’ve listed all the UK & Ireland localizations available as standard within JDE below.

Of course, there are always a few things you need to look out for, hence the value of working with a reliable local partner who really knows the market. One of the things we highlight to our international clients is that the most recent localisation (or is that localization!) for SEPA - The Single European Payments Area (SEPA) initiative for European financial infrastructure - has proven not to be as standard as the EU intended.  While they have succeeded in standardising the structure of the Bank account information into the IBAN & BIC number, each bank has a tendency to add its own mandatory fields to the XML format for transfer and so while the JDE produces the standard SEPA format for both Credit transfer & Direct Debit we have had to add additional localisations for specific Banks   -   e.g. AIB & Bank of Ireland

Similarly for non-EURO zone payments we have standardised interfaces for several of the UK banks 

Additionally we have also implemented localisations specific to the Irish public sector not met by the CSI -Withholding Tax Processing for Subcontractors UK localisations - e.g. Relevant Contract Tax, Prompt Payment & Tax clearance certification

United Kingdom & Ireland Standard JDE Localizations 

  • SEPA Credit Transfer
    The Single European Payments Area (SEPA) initiative for European financial infrastructure involves creation of a zone in EURO in which all payments are considered domestic and there is no distinction between the national and international payments. The SEPA Credit Transfer scheme is supported.
     
  • SEPA Direct Debit
    The Single European Payments Area (SEPA) initiative for European financial infrastructure involves creation of a zone in EURO in which all payments are considered domestic and there is no distinction between the national and international payments. The SEPA Direct Debit scheme is supported.
     
  • Enhanced Upload Functionality for BIC and IBAN
    Tool allowing companies to do a mass update of the suppliers' and customers' bank accounts with the BIC and IBAN account information.
     
  • EU VAT registration number validation via VIES web service
    The VAT Information Exchange System (VIES), maintained by the EU commission, offers a web service that allows verification of VAT registration numbers issued by the EU Member States [http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies/]. EnterpriseOne automatically accesses the VIES SOAP service via a new business service.
  • European Union Sales List - ESL
    The European Community Sales Listing is a recapitulative statement that lists the goods supplied and the services provided to customers registered for VAT in other European Union [EU] Member states. It is required in most EU member states. To generate the European Community Sales Listing the system uses Oracle’s BI Publisher.
     
  • Intrastat Processing
    All EU Member countries are required to provide Intrastat submission if their imports or exports with other EU Member countries exceed published limits. The Intrastat localization is integrated with the Inventory, Procurement and Sales Order Processing applications for the capture and maintenance of detailed statistical information regarding merchandise trade between members of the European Union. Information that is tracked by the Intrastat system is based strictly on the actual, physical movement of goods between member countries. Intrastat information does not apply to the movement of monetary amounts or placement of orders between member countries. The major features of the Intrastat system are common in all member states, but the system allows national specificities to be taken into account.

The Intrastat localization provides maximum flexibility to meet country-specific Intrastat reporting requirements. Applications are provided to filter data from standard system tables to a work file, according to the reporting company's business practices. From the work file, data may be processed and output as required for Intrastat submissions. The output may be organized to meet most country-specific Intrastat reporting requirements.
 

  • Intrastat Reporting  - IDEP/CN8-CBS IRIS Interface
    Export Intrastat information from the Sales and Purchasing systems to the IDEP/CN8-CBS IRIS Intrastat reporting package.
