Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1 and 12.2 Release Content Document Purpose of Document 1
2. Introduction

2.1. Purpose of Document


This Release Content Document (RCD) describes features and enhancements proposed
for the specified release of Oracle E-Business Suite Financials. This document describes
new or changed functionality between E-Business Suite Release 12 and 12.2. It is
intended solely to help you assess the business benefits and value of upgrading to the
specified release of the Oracle E-Business Suite.
The new features and enhancements included in this document are grouped by product,
and then by the release in which they first became available. In a few cases, a feature is

Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1 and 12.2 Release Content Document Purpose of Document 2
3. New and Changed Features in Financials

3.1. Oracle Advanced Collections


3.1.1. Release 12.1.1
3.1.1.1. Customer Dispute Enhancement
Collectors require the ability to record comments while researching transactions and
interacting with customers during the dispute process. A new Internal Comment field is
available on all screens used to submit and manage disputes. This field streamlines the
dispute submission and approval process by allowing collectors to enter and share
comments to internal users such as receivables specialists.
3.1.1.2. Customer Level Bankruptcy
During various stages of a customer’s bankruptcy process their outstanding business
transactions require specialized handling. In prior releases of Advance Collections,
individual transactions had to be marked with a Bankruptcy status. Collections agents
can now assign Bankruptcy status at the customer level, ensuring that all transactions in
all accounts and bill to sites are status and managed uniformly.

This feature has also been back-ported to 12.0 via the standalone patch:
8522751:R12.IEX.A.

3.1.1.3. Status Assignment at Case and Contract Level


Collectors can now better manage their leasing delinquencies by assigning delinquency
levels including the lease contract, the lease case, or specific transactions.

3.1.2. Release 12.1.2


3.1.2.1. Multiple Level Collections Strategy Management
In prior releases, collections strategies could only be executed at one business (party,
account, bill to site) at a time. Enterprises require the ability to execute strategies
simultaneously at different levels for different customers and operating units, for
example, in one region - at Bill to level, in another region – at Account level. This new
feature allows managers to setup and execute strategies at multiple collection business
levels while allowing collections agents to change specific customer strategies to
different business levels as required.

Collections managers are now able to plan and manage collections strategies that support
their unique business requirements where strategies must be executed at different
operating units, groups of customers or specific customers. Collections agents can view
strategies at different levels on their work queue and on the strategy tab. Delinquent
customers are managed at the business level most appropriate to their business model.
Additionally, background processes including collections and strategy management can
now be executed at different levels concurrently.

Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1 and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Advanced Collections 3
3.1.3. Release 12.1.3
3.1.3.1. Staged Dunning
In addition to the Aged Dunning method that is based on a customer’s oldest aged
invoice, Collections organizations may now use Staged Dunning method. The Staged
Dunning method ensures the dunning notices set to a customer automatically incremented
based on the collection score and pre-defined number of days between letters being sent.

3.1.4. Release 12.2.3


3.1.4.1. Ability to place a hold on Collection Strategy
Collectors require the ability to place a collection strategy on hold or release it from a
hold depending on the customer’s delinquency status and the effectiveness of the strategy
used.
Collectors now have the ability to place and release holds on individual collection
strategies using the user interface or place/release collection strategy holds for individual
or all Operating Units using the Put Strategy on Hold/Release concurrent program.

3.1.5. Release 12.2.4


3.1.5.1. Auto Reassignment of Work Items upon change in Collector
Simplify reassignment of collector work items due to workforce changes or territory
reassignment with the Auto Reassignment of Work Item upon change in Collector
feature.
Customers now have the ability to automatically reassign work items including
Collection Strategies and Promises to pay upon a change in collector by using the new
Synchronize Collector Work concurrent program.
This feature has also been back-ported to 12.1.3 via the standalone patch:
17043270:R12.IEX.B.
3.1.5.2. Metrics by Operating Unit
Improve your organization’s insight on performance by comparing and quantifying
collectivity within and across a single or multiple Operating Units using the new Metrics
by Operating Unit option. This new option provides users the ability to view collection
metrics for a single or multiple operating units in addition to the current Global level.
This feature has also been back-ported to 12.1.3 via the standalone patch:
17043270:R12.IEX.B.
3.1.6. Release 12.2.6
3.1.6.1. Collect on Related Accounts
Customers require the ability to assign collectors at multiple collection levels, enabling
them to run scoring and strategies at Customer, Account, and Bill- To levels.
Customers now group parties with parent and child relationships to score, assign and
manage strategies, assign collectors, and view aggregate information on related accounts.
3.1.6.2. Strategy Actionable Work Items
Strategy Actionable Work Item template rules are now available to allow users to execute
work items based on the percentage amount collected. When the user or system

Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1 and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Advanced Collections 4
completes the work item, post-wait, based on the amount received and associated rule
definition the system will skip or continue the next work item in the strategy.
Additionally, Strategy Templates and Work Item Templates can be defined for a specific
Operating Unit.

3.2. Oracle Advanced Global Intercompany System (AGIS)


3.2.1. Release 12.1.2
3.2.1.1. Purge Rejected Intercompany Batches from Interface Table
Oracle AGIS introduces a new Purge Rejected Intercompany Transactions Program to
purge rejected intercompany transaction batches from intercompany interface tables.
Oracle AGIS validates intercompany transaction batches imported from external source
applications. Batches that pass validation become intercompany transactions in AGIS.
Batches that fail validation are retained in the intercompany interface table with a
Rejected status. These rejected intercompany transactions occupy space in the database
and can lead to detrimental impact on system performance. Users can use the new
concurrent program to preview and purge the rejected intercompany transactions.

3.3. Oracle Assets


3.3.1. Release 12.1.3
3.3.1.1. Asset Impairment for Japan Tax Reform 2007
As defined by previous regulatory initiatives in Japan and the Japan Tax Reform of 2007,
the impairment functionality in Oracle Assets has been extended to perform and account
for asset impairments in compliance with Japanese accounting regulations. Impairment
losses can now be derived and recorded for Japan-specific depreciation methods.
The following impairment feature functionality is now available for Japan depreciation
methods.
• Japan specific impairment loss calculations
• Assignment and impairment of assets within Cash Generating Units
• Impairment of fully reserve and non-depreciating assets
• Impairment of assets exceeding depreciation limits.

3.3.2. Release 12.2.8


3.3.2.1. New Depreciation and Amortization BI Publisher Report to Support Form 4562
Filing to US IRS
The new BI Publisher Report replaces the existing Oracle Reports Depreciation and
Amortization BI Publisher Report to Support Form 4562 Filing to US IRS. The new
report provides both summary and detailed report formats with new grouping of data and
additional information which makes Form 4562 filing easier. Furthermore, as it is a BI
Publisher report, the output is available in pdf, excel, rtf, html, and xml.
The summary report groups data by asset book, balancing segment value, fiscal year,
useful life in years, and depreciation method. It displays balances for cost, cost basis,
depreciation deduction, YTD depreciation, and annual special depreciation. The summary
report format report enables you to more readily fill in Form 4562.

Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1 and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Advanced Global Intercompany System (AGIS) 5
The detailed report provides a detailed breakdown at an asset by asset level to support the
summary report. It displays asset level information (Asset Number, Asset Description,
Date Placed in Service), along with other financial attributes similar to the summary
report, at each asset category, prorate convention, depreciation method, useful life in
years, fiscal year, and balancing segment level.

3.4. Oracle Assets Command Center


3.4.1. Overview

relevant Asset processes in the enterprise and make that data available for analysis and
search.
Operational efficiency and insight is greatly enhanced through key metrics, drillable
graphs, and tag clouds enabling asset personnel to quickly identify problem areas and
outstanding items that require intervention. Decision making is improved through
immediately actionable information and streamlined end to end processing of exceptions
and bottlenecks. Asset personnel can efficiently navigate to the underlying application to
take corrective action as necessary.
The Oracle Assets Command Center feature is available at no additional cost to licensed
users of Oracle Financials. It can be applied to Release 12.2.4 and above.

analyze root causes of inaccuracies.
3.4.2.3. Asset Aging Dashboard
The Asset Aging dashboard offers insight into remaining life of your assets with easy
overview of asset cost, accumulated depreciation and net book value. You can easily
assess if an asset needs to be repaired, replaced or retired, and use the actionable link to

shows the comparison of asset balances for Subledger Accounting balances and General
Ledger balances that can be viewed by major (and minor) category, cost center, or
account.
3.4.3.2. Enhancement to Asset Cost Dashboard
The Asset Cost dashboard displays a new line chart to give better insight into asset peaks
and troughs by providing asset count by Date Placed in Service.
3.4.3.3. Enhancement to Asset Location Dashboard
The Asset Location dashboard has improved search capabilities by enabling drill-down
on location hierarchy.
3.4.3.4. Grouping of Attributes in Attribute Groups
Attribute groups are logical groupings of attributes for display purpose. Grouping helps
productive navigation through details within each of the dashboards in the Oracle Assets
Command Center. Attribute groups improve the search capabilities by enabling you to
refine and narrow your search on data by attributes arranged into logical groups such as
asset, financial, source data and lease.

This feature has also been back-ported to 12.0.6 via the standalone patch:
7552541:R12.IBY.A.

Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1 and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Cash Management 7

3.5.2.3. Copy Bank Transaction Codes


Bank transaction codes are used by banks to identify the types of transactions on bank
statements. The codes are set up for each bank account for reconciliation purposes. For
organizations having several bank accounts, it can be a cumbersome process to manually
setup these transaction codes since most bank accounts for a specific bank use the same
transaction codes.
A new concurrent program has been provided to copy the bank transaction codes from
one bank account to another bank account(s).

3.8. Oracle Environmental Accounting & Reporting
3.8.1. Release 12.1.3
3.8.1.1. Capture of Energy Usage and Environmental Data
Oracle Environmental Accounting and Reporting (EA&R) integrates with Oracle
Accounts Payables and Oracle Inventory Management enabling customers to perform
environmental accounting for various transactions, enabling the capture of the energy
usage, fuel usage and other environmental data through AP invoices, Inventory issues,
Environmental Ledger and Web ADI. Using the usage information captured during
transactions or entered manually, EA&R calculates the related greenhouse gas (GHG)
emissions through the application of energy and emission factors. This approach presents
users with a familiar and consistent experience maintaining data integrity and security
with a single source of truth and ensuring data completeness and accuracy. Integration
with the native ERP system reduces environmental data management costs, leveraging
existing IT systems, minimizing organizational impacts and assuring rapid time to value.
3.8.1.2. Emission Sources, Scopes and Factors
An emission factor is the quantity of a greenhouse gas emitted per unit of energy (kg
CO2-e /GJ), fuel (kg CO2-e/t coal) or a similar measure. The EA&R application provides
the ability to define, change and update emission sources and factors, automatically
determining the correct transformation factors for each transaction. It also enables users
to select location specific energy and emission factors for environmental accounting of
transactions that are related to emission sources. It also enables setup of custom emission
factors. Emission transformation factors are stored and can readily be updated over time
with date effectiveness to manage the change of emissions factors and for recalculation
purposes.
Emission calculation techniques range from usage of emission factors to direct
monitoring. The most common techniques used for emission calculation are:
• Calculations based on the purchased quantities of commercial fuels, such as
natural gas and heating oil, using published emission factors. This method is used
for Scope 1 emissions.
• Calculations based on metered electricity consumption and supplier-specific,
local grid, or other published emission factors. This method is used for Scope 2
emissions.
• Calculations based on activity data such as fuel use or passenger miles and
published or third-party emission factors. This type of emissions is usually
classified as Scope 3 emissions.
Oracle Environmental Accounting and Reporting allows you to update historical factors
using the GHG Sources window and provides the “Recalculate Emissions” concurrent
program to recalculate the emission and energy values based on the revised factors.
The solution enables complete audit trail for entries and updates reducing data assurance
costs.
3.8.1.3. Calculation and Classification of Greenhouse Gas Emissions
Oracle Environmental Accounting and Reporting provides the built-in mechanisms for
calculating emissions and classifying them as Scope 1, 2, or 3 using the Greenhouse Gas
Protocol guidelines published by the World Resources Institute. The Emissions
Calculation Engine uses the collected usage data to calculate the relevant emissions using
seeded formulas based on the energy and emission factors setup for the emission sources.
This enables organization to accurately communicate greenhouse gas emissions and other

Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1 and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Environmental Accounting & Reporting 11
environmental impacts to constituents including regulators, customers, shareholders and
employees.
3.8.1.4. Environmental Ledger
The Environmental Ledger stores all changes to the environmental transactions including
voiding, reversal, recalculation, and measurement criterion updating transactions. The
changing landscape of compliance mandates drives companies to provide more
comprehensive, transparent, accurate and auditable data. Oracle Environmental
Accounting and Reporting allows you to have a single source of truth assuring data
quality and auditability.
3.8.1.5. Flexible Reporting and Organizational Structures
Oracle Environmental Accounting and Reporting enables the creation of Environmental
Organizations. An organization is defined as a single undertaking or an enterprise or any
entity that performs activities or a series of activities that emit greenhouse gases and/or
produces, or consumes energy at a single site and is attributable to a single industry
sector. An organization can have multiple hierarchies for reporting, for example,
government reporting hierarchy, operational hierarchy, or legal structure hierarchy. In
addition an organization can be a division, company subsidiary, or operation (i.e.
facilities, plants). The integration with the native ERP enables leveraging existing
structures as well as specifying additional hierarchies for GHG Protocol and other
reporting guidelines, including the ability to define aggregation levels and to manage
acquisitions and divestitures.
3.8.1.6. Pre-Built Analytics and Dashboard with Dynamic User Interaction
Pre-built Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) dashboards enable the
dynamic generation of reports providing insight into an organization’s emissions and
other environmental impacts. The dashboards provide information on energy usage,
emissions, key performance indicators (KPIs), activities and transactions. Users can view
graphical representations of the data; drill down into output of past, current, and projected
data; analyze historical trends; define variance thresholds and receive alerts; and publish
and distribute reports in multiple formats. The pre-built OBIEE reporting and analytics
dashboards also include the quantitative responses to the Carbon Disclosure Project
(CDP). OBIEE’s powerful and flexible framework allows for the quick creation of
reports for reporting schemes such as Climate Registry (USA), EPA 40 CFR Part 98 Rule
(USA), Carbon Reduction Commitment (UK), and National Greenhouse and Energy
Reporting Act (Australia). Measuring performance and setting targets allows
organizations to become more productive, profitable and sustainable by providing
powerful insights into high opportunity areas for emissions reductions, energy savings,
and cost savings. In addition, OBIEE allows users to quickly create custom user defined
reports.
3.8.1.7. User-Defined Key Performance Indicators
Oracle Environmental Accounting and Reporting enables organizations to create and
modify standard and custom industry-specific key performance indicators (KPIs) to
measure performance and monitor key environmental metrics such as energy, waste, and
water. Users can normalize data to operational metrics and use a drag-and-drop
environment in OBIEE to create custom reports. Examples of these KPIs are energy
usage per square foot, water usage by employee, etc. Using these metrics organizations
can benchmark and affect behavioral change to reduce environmental impacts in the
relative context of the organization’s growth.
3.8.1.8. Target and Threshold Definition
Oracle Environmental Accounting and Reporting enables organizations to establish a
baseline of its greenhouse gas emissions, energy usage, and other key environmental

Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1 and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Environmental Accounting & Reporting 12
indicators and set reductions targets. Graphical indicators on the Business Intelligence
dashboards illustrate to users on a timely basis whether the organization is performing
above, below, or in-line with the targets so that corrective actions can be taken as needed
to successfully execute on the organization’s sustainability initiatives.
3.8.1.9. Using Web ADI to Import Setup Data
Users are able to leverage the Web ADI framework in Oracle E-Business Suite to import
setup data into the Environmental Accounting & Reporting application. Data that can be
imported using this interface includes Sources, KPI Definitions, Targets, and
Organizations.

3.8.2. Release 12.2


3.8.2.1. Updated Carbon Disclosure Project Report
One of the pre-built OBIEE reporting and analytics dashboards supported in EA&R
covers the quantitative responses to the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP). The Carbon
Disclosure Project report has been enhanced to support additional questions under the
2011 guidelines. The dashboard can now display: emissions in metric tons, emission
factors applied for GHG calculations and their origin; breakdown of Scope 1 and Scope 2
emissions by activity; amount of fuel, electricity, heat, steam, and cooling in MWh
consumed by an organization during the reporting year; breakdown of fuel usage by fuel
type; year by year comparison of combined Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions; year by year
comparison of Scope 3 emissions by source; and gross combined Scope 1 and 2
emissions for the reporting year in metric tons CO2e per full time equivalent (FTE)
employee.
3.8.2.2. Enhanced Performance Dashboards
Pre-built Oracle Business Intelligence Enterprise Edition (OBIEE) dashboards enable the
dynamic generation of reports providing insight into an organization’s emissions and
other environmental impacts. The dashboards provide information on energy usage,
emissions, key performance indicators (KPIs), activities and transactions. Users can view
graphical representations of the data; drill down into output of past, current, and projected
data; analyze historical trends; define variance thresholds and receive alerts; and publish
and distribute reports in multiple formats. In this release additional pre-built reports have
been added including the Scope 3 Emissions and Emissions by Organization Level
dashboards.
3.8.2.3. Enhanced Key Performance Indicators
Oracle Environmental Accounting and Reporting enables organizations to create and
modify standard and custom industry-specific key performance indicators (KPIs) to
measure performance and monitor key environmental metrics such as energy, waste, and
water. Users can normalize data to operational metrics and use a drag-and-drop
environment in OBIEE to create custom reports. In the 12.2 release it is now possible to
set a threshold in the KPI Metrics history page highlighting to users whether the
organization is performing above, below or in-line with the targets so that corrective
actions can be taken as needed to successfully execute on the organization’s sustainability
initiatives.

Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1 and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Environmental Accounting & Reporting 13
3.8.3. Release 12.2.3
3.8.3.1. Water and Waste Dashboards
EA&R is being enhanced to provide a new set of out-of-the-box dashboards to
accommodate new requirements for reporting based on legislation and competitive
pressure. These new requirements include the addition of a Water and Waste Dashboard
reports including Water Consumption, Water Recycled/Reused by Period, and Total
Solid Waste produced by period, Solid Waste Recovered and Recycled by Period, Solid
Waste to Landfill by Period.
3.8.3.2. Carbon Permit Management
Emissions trading or cap-and-trade is a market-based approach used to control pollution
by providing economic incentives for achieving reductions in the emissions of pollutants.
Governments set a limit or cap on the amount of a pollutant that may be emitted. The
limit or cap is allocated or sold to firms in the form of emissions permits which represent
the right to emit or discharge a specific volume of the specified pollutant. Firms are
required to hold a number of permits (or carbon credits) equivalent to their emissions.
Typically, in carbon tax and emission trading schemes, significant penalties apply for not
surrendering the correct amount of permits by the compliance date. Companies need to
establish processes to actively manage trading of permits, such as funding purchases
when needed and understanding which permits can be used to meet their liabilities.
Oracle Environmental Accounting and Reporting (EA&R) helps these companies
calculate the correct number of carbon permits required for the specified reporting period.
The new Carbon Permit Management report tracks emission data by region / legislation
to show the number of carbon permits which must be surrendered to be complaint.

3.8.4. Release 12.2.4


3.8.4.1. Integration with Oracle Property Manager
This release provides a new integration which brings the organizational hierarchy defined
in Oracle Property Manager into Oracle Environmental Accounting & Reporting. Data
entities for Region, Property, Building, Floor, and Office are imported from Oracle
Property Manager along with their implicit hierarchy to create a new default hierarchy in
the Environmental Accounting & Reporting module. This hierarchy is called the ‘GHG
Property Manager Organization Hierarchy’ and has six levels, namely:
Level Number Entity Type
1 Company Name
2 Region
3 Property
4 Building
5 Floor
6 Office
The information brought across from Property Manager for these entities includes any
associated tenure, disposition, area, and headcount data and are displayed in the ‘Property
Details’ tab for each Environmental Organization. These property details are
synchronized over time to capture any ongoing changes that are made in Property
Manager.

Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1 and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Environmental Accounting & Reporting 14
A new setup feature called 'Property Types' maintains a mapping between the Property
Types in Property Manager and the Organization Types maintained in Environmental
Accounting & Reporting.
For organizations that do not use Oracle Property Manager the property details can be
entered directly in Environmental Accounting & Reporting for each Environmental
Organization.
3.8.4.2. Source and Item Unit of Measure Conversion
This feature enables users to set up an additional unit of measure conversion specific to
an Environmental Source or Item. For example:
• Grease is typically purchased in kilograms but for the purposes of calculating
emissions the rates provided consider grease as a liquid and thus require a
volumetric unit.
• Liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) can be purchased by cylinder size or cylinder
weight but the energy content factors are based on volumetric units such as
kiloliters or gallons.
• In most cases purchased electricity does not have an associated Item in the source
transactions (i.e. electricity is purchased in kWh) but there may be some cases
where electricity is purchased based on the use of an Item (e.g. the number of
gallons of diesel oil required to power a generator) requiring an additional
conversion.
This release enables the users to setup conversions specific to either Environmental
Sources or Items to address scenarios such as the ones described above. This UOM
conversion capability is above and beyond the standard unit of measure conversion
previously supported by the application.
The Source UOM conversion assumes higher precedence over the standard UOM
conversion in selecting the conversion factors at the time of emission calculation. For
conversions where there is a related Item the source UOM conversion assumes the higher
precedence over both the standard and Item UOM conversion when the emissions are
calculated.
3.8.4.3. Organizations Targets for Emission, Energy and Usage
Users now have the ability to set performance targets at the organizational level for
Energy, Emissions, and Usage for specific periods thus enabling organizations to drive
performance improvements on an ongoing basis. A new dashboard enables ongoing
visual comparison of the actual performance of the organization versus the targets that
have been set.
3.8.4.4. Enhanced Energy Dashboard
The existing energy dashboard has been enhanced to include four additional tabs,
namely: Summary, Energy by Scope, Energy by Source, and Energy by Organization
Type. The existing tab has been renamed to Energy by Organization.
The Summary tab now displays two reports: (i) Energy History displaying a graphical
representation of the history of the energy consumed by the organization and (ii) Energy
by Year showing the energy consumed by an organization for a specific period.
The Energy by Scope dashboard displays a graphical representation of the energy usage
of an organization by Scope 1, Scope 2 and Scope 3 as per the Greenhouse Gas Protocol.
The Energy by Source page displays a graphical and tabular representation of the energy
consumed by the organization for each of the environmental sources.

3.22.2. Release 12.1.2


3.22.2.1. Replace Supplier Bank Accounts on Invoices
In today’s business environment, it is a common practice to change bank accounts. If
suppliers change their bank accounts, Oracle Payables can now automatically update all
unpaid and partially paid invoices with the new bank account information. When users
end date an existing supplier bank account and provide a new active bank account, Oracle
Payables will automatically update the remit-to bank account information on unpaid and
partially paid invoices. This streamlines transaction processing and prevents the need to
update each invoice manually.
This feature has been back-ported to 12.1.1 via the standalone patches:
6867725:R12.AP.B and 6615694:R12.IBY.B.
3.22.2.2. Change Taxes from Inclusive to Exclusive Online
The tax regulations in many countries require that certain types of taxes on invoices be
applied as inclusive or exclusive to the price of the good or service. This is common in
countries that report VAT, such as in the United Kingdom, where the VAT tax can be
treated as inclusive or exclusive depending on the type or price of the good or service.
Oracle Payables provides the flexibility to override the inclusive or exclusive nature of
taxes that default from the eBTax setup. While entering an invoice, users can change
taxes from inclusive to exclusive or vice versa to match the tax shown on the physical
invoice. This ensures more accurate invoice entry and tax reporting.

3.22.3. Release 12.2.2


3.22.3.1. Workflow Transfer of Approval

3.24.1.4. FDC Servlet Load Balancing
FDC North is a processor model payment system and is integrated with iPayments for
credit / purchase card processing on the funds capture side. Under the 11i/FP.G and R12
versions, the FDC North servlet could not be load balanced due to the use of a text file
(BatchGenMap.txt) for processing purposes and the inability for a text file to be shared
concurrently by two processes due to the risk of overwriting data. In this release, the data
required to process FDC batch queries can now be derived from the Payments data model
eliminating the use of the BatchGenMap text file. As a result, load balancing of the FDC
North servlet is now possible.

3.26.3. Release 12.2.2
3.26.3.1. Review and Manage Accounting Exceptions during Period Close
Companies are constantly striving towards reducing the period close cycle time to
finalize the financial statements as early as possible for management and statutory
reporting. One of the period close tasks that can take considerable amount of time is
resolving the accounting exceptions.
Receivables now provides the new Sweep Invalid Distributions report that shows the
details of the accounting exceptions that are holding the period close for review and
action. If the amount involved is not material from the reporting perspective and
resolving the accounting exceptions is likely to delay the period close then the accounting
date of the accounting distributions that have exceptions should be swept to the next open
period. Pass manual journal entry in the General Ledger in the current period for the
receivable accounting distributions that are swept to the next period.
The new Receivables report is not only useful in creating the manual journal entry in the
General Ledger but will also act as a supporting document for audit. In the next open
period reverse the manual journal entry and resolve the accounting exceptions.
3.26.3.2. Automate Auto Lockbox Processing
Companies using the Lockbox service receive the data file containing receipt information
from the banks at frequent intervals for each bank account that receives payments. These
files are processed by the Auto Lockbox programs to import, validate, create and apply
receipts. Until now the lockbox processing programs had to be launched manually from
the UI for each data file. Receivables now allow these programs to be submitted as
standard concurrent requests using the standard Submit Request form.
To further improve productivity, a custom program can be created that scans for the
incoming files at regular intervals. When a file is received it can automatically submit the
Auto Lockbox programs to process the file.
3.26.3.3. Assign Customers to Unidentified Receipts using API
Receivables departments need to efficiently manage the cash application process to
reduce the manual efforts and at the same time improve the customer satisfaction. Timely
and accurate application of the unidentified customer cash receipts to the invoices paid is
important to provide a true picture of the customer account and the transaction status and
helps in improving customer satisfaction. An API is now available that can be used to
assign customers to the unidentified receipts.
3.26.3.4. Golden Tax Adaptor Enhancement for Mainland China
The Golden Tax Adaptor provides the following new features:

3.31.10.5. Spain: Spanish Modelo 347 – Legal Changes 2014


The Deferred VAT regime is a regime that suppliers can adhere in order to pay and settle
their VAT on Payment date rather than the traditional Invoice date. Only suppliers that do
not exceed a total annual turnover of 2,000,000 Euros can adhere to this regime. EBS
and Fusion customers, therefore, are mainly recipients (i.e. customers) of said deferred
VAT transactions. Therefore, they will have to enter these deferred VAT transactions in
Oracle Payables and report them on the Spanish Payables Operations with Third Parties
Data Extract (Modelo 347).
A party that is the recipient of deferred VAT regime invoices can have both non-deferred
VAT invoices (known as accrual based invoices) and deferred VAT invoices. In the case
of non-deferred VAT invoices, there is no change regarding the extraction of data. With
regards to the Deferred VAT transactions, only those invoices paid in the declaration
year, for the portion paid, must be declared in the Deferred VAT Amount field (i.e. the
Amount of Transactions field will not change). Therefore, an invoice entered in
December 2014 and paid in January 2015 will only appear in the Deferred VAT Amount
field when submitting the 2015 declaration.
The layout for the 2014 reporting has been modified as per legal requirements and
following reports are available in support of the changes:
• Spanish Operations with Third Parties Magnetic Format (Modelo 347)
• Spanish Verification and Audit Report (Modelo 347).

3.31.10.6. United Kingdom: Local Authority: Impact of Salvage Value on Revaluation


Reserve Amortization Basis
Per International Accounting Standard (IAS) requirements when performing salvage
value adjustments on a revalued asset that has a revaluation reserve which exceeds the
Historic Net Book Value the relationship between the Salvage Value, Historic Net Book
Value, and Revaluation Reserve Balance must be maintained to ensure the revaluation
reserve amortization does not exceed the Historic Net Book Value on the asset.
As a result, when performing salvage value adjustments on a previously revalued asset,
Oracle assets will determine and adjust the revaluation reserve amortization basis as
necessary to ensure the Revaluation Reserve Balance does not exceed the Historic Net
Book Value on the asset.

transactions, which can be offset with input tax credit accrued based on pre-configured
netting setup based on the credit ledger and remaining liability to be settled from the

tax credit for offsetting the outbound tax liability and for utilizing the tax paid in advance
for settling the remaining liability.

• Recurring payment terms that end on the lease termination date will be extended
to the new extension date.
• Users can choose to have variable rent and rent increase agreements extended.
This is described further in the sections on Variable Rent and Rent Increase
enhancements.
• Extensions of terms and agreements can be rolled forward month by month using
a new concurrent process.
• The system extends existing normalized payment terms differently depending on
the lease status. If the user changes the status from Active to Month-to-Month or
Holdover, the system extends a normalized payment term ending on the old lease
termination or extension date by adding a new non-normalized term rather than
by changing the end date of the existing term. If the lease is later placed back in
Active status, the term will be extended by addition of a new normalized term
beginning on the amendment commencement date.
4.1.1.3. Tenancy Extension and Contraction
When the user extends or contracts a lease, tenancy records (records on the locations tab
of the lease) will be extended or contracted as well, as appropriate.
4.1.1.4. Assignment Occupancy Percent Determined by Attribute on Tenancy
A new field on the lease locations (tenancy) tab, Assigned % Area: determines the %
Area value on the Customer Assignment, that is, it will determine what percentage of the
location area is occupied by that customer. The default will be 100%
4.1.1.5. Multiple Schedules for Same Schedule Day
Oracle Property Manager can create a new draft schedule, if needed, for a date with an
existing approved schedule. This means you can create a new term with the desired
schedule day in all cases
4.1.1.6. Prorating the Billing/Payment Amount based on a New Start Day Field
A new field has been added to the Lease form to capture the Year Start Date for
Prorating. Based on this field, the Schedule Start Date is determined considering the
period in which the Term Start Date falls into.

Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1 and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Property Manager 82
4.1.1.7. Breakpoint Flexibility
Complete flexibility in setting up line items and breakpoint definitions has been
introduced. With this feature, users can:
• Set up complex agreements with changes to breakpoints, rates, breakpoint types,
line items, etc., occurring on any date, any number of times over the span of the
lease.
• Enter line item and breakpoint details with any start and end date, not restricted
to sales year start and end dates.
4.1.1.8. Updating Breakpoints
Users can now change breakpoint definitions at any time, regardless of whether variable
rent has been calculated and approved. To respond to amendments or to correct data,
users can change most parts of a variable rent agreement. If the changes affect rent that
has been approved, the application will create adjusting terms.
4.1.1.9. Natural Breakpoint Enhancements
When the terms that form the basis for a natural breakpoint change, whether because of a
rent increase or because a user added or ended a term, the system now automatically
recalculates the natural breakpoints. The user can recalculate the variable rent; and if the
changes affect rent that has been approved, the application will create adjusting terms.
Users now select terms to form the basis for natural breakpoints using a new attribute on
the term, allowing complete control over which terms are to be included.
Users can now have rent increases, selectively, included in the natural breakpoint basis as
the increases are assessed.
4.1.1.10. Early Termination of Agreement or Lease
The user can now end variable rent agreements as of any date, either directly or by
terminating a lease. The system will perform any recalculations necessary if variable rent
has already been paid for affected periods and will create adjusting and/or reversing
terms.
4.1.1.11. Extension of Variable Rent Agreements
The user can now extend the length of variable rent agreements, or have the system
extend the agreement automatically when a lease is extended. The user also chooses
whether to have the system automatically extend the latest breakpoint definitions when
the agreement is extended or to manually enter the breakpoint definition detail for the
extension period.
4.1.1.12. New Calculation Methods
Two new calculation methods have been introduced for Variable Rent.
• Year-to-Date. The system determines overage by comparing the cumulative
breakpoint with the cumulative sales (or other volume).
• True Up. The system calculates variable rent periodically through the year with a
non-cumulative method and then does a True Up calculation at the end of the
year (or other appropriate period).
4.1.1.13. New Partial Year Calculation Methods
Several new methods (in addition to the existing Standard Proration) have been
introduced to calculate variable rent in partial years at the beginning or end of an
agreement.

Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1 and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Property Manager 83
• First Year. A partial first year variable rent is calculated based on the first 12
months of sales, effectively using some sales from the second year as proxy for
the missing months in the first year. The resulting rent is prorated based on the
actual length of the first partial year.
• Last Year. This is the equivalent of the First Year method, applied to partial last
years.
• First Year / Last Year. If this Partial Year Method is selected, both the First Year
and Last Year methods will be applied.
• Combined Year with Breakpoint Proration. The first partial year is combined
with the second year. For cumulative and year-to-date methods, breakpoints and
volumes continue to accumulate for more than 12 months. The breakpoints are
effectively ‘annualized’ because the period of breakpoint accumulation matches
the period of volume accumulation.
• Combined Year without Breakpoint Proration. The first partial year is combined
with the second year. A blended annual breakpoint is calculated for the
combined period, converted to a 12-month value. This is used as the basis for
breakpoints for all methods. Since the combined year is longer than 12 months,
and the sales are accumulated for that longer period, the breakpoint accumulation
is not matched to the volume accumulation and the breakpoint is not, in effect,
annualized.
• No Proration. The breakpoints are used as entered, without proration. There is
no interaction or combination between values in the first partial year and the
second year.
4.1.1.14. Month-to-Month Roll Forward of Variable Rent Agreements
If a lease is in Month-to-Month status, the user can choose to automatically extend the
variable rent agreement with each monthly roll-forward of the Month-to-Month
extension.
4.1.1.15. Enhancement to Cumulative Calculation Method
When the overage rate for calculation of variable rent changes mid-year, accumulation of
volume recommences. Breakpoints are prorated to the length of the ‘cumulative cycle’
determined by sales year end dates or rate changes.
4.1.1.16. Allowances and Abatements
There are a number of enhancements related to allowances and abatements. Users can:
• Create multiple allowances with effective dates.
• Specify whether allowances or abatements are to be applied first.
• Select terms for recurring abatement at the time that agreements are created.
• Roll forward recurring abatement selections automatically and have the system
apply abatements automatically as part of the variable rent calculation process.
• Enter amounts for ‘Fixed Abatement.’ This is a new type of abatement. A fixed
abatement is an amount entered by the user to be applied as abatement for each
invoice period, much like the system applies the amount of recurring abatement
terms each invoice period.
4.1.1.17. Carry Forward of Excess Abatement as Negative Rent
Users can now control through an agreement parameter whether excess abatement
amounts are treated as negative rent.
4.1.1.18. Constraints
Users can now set start and end dates for constraints for the life of the agreement rather
than setting them up for each year.

Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1 and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Property Manager 84
4.1.1.19. Updating Volumes
Users can now update previously entered volume amounts through the Variable Rent
Gateway, where previously the only way to do an adjustment was by entering an
additional volume record (with a positive or negative adjusting amount).
4.1.1.20. Additional Frequency Attribute
The attribute called ‘Reporting Frequency’ in previous functionality determined two
different frequencies, which sometimes should have had different values. This attribute
has been split into two attributes:
• Calculation Frequency. The frequency with which variable rent is calculated.
This was the primary purpose of the former ‘Reporting Frequency.’
• Reporting Frequency. The frequency with which the tenant is required to report
volumes. This frequency does not affect calculations but does affect the logic by
which the Variable Rent Gateway creates default volume entry rows.
4.1.1.21. Streamlining of Adjustments
Users can now recalculate variable rent at any time, to accommodate for changed
volume, breakpoints or other factors. The system will create adjusting terms if necessary.
There is no longer a separate adjustment process.
4.1.1.22. Form Enhancements
There have been many enhancements to layouts and navigation, decreasing the number of
screens and improving usability.
• A number of multi-row views have been converted to folder blocks to allow for
user configuration.
• Drilldowns have been added between the invoice review screen and the line item
review screen.
• Multi-row views have been combined on a single screen with a master-detail
relationship to reduce the number of screens and present information in a more
intuitive layout.
4.1.1.23. Display of Calculation Results
Users can review in detail, on-screen, the calculation that resulted in the variable rent
amount, regardless of which method is used for the agreement.
4.1.1.24. Variable Rent Templates
Users may select a variable rent template to populate many of the attributes of a variable
rent agreement. This reduces data entry effort and error.
4.1.1.25. Term Template Enhancements
Users can now create, edit and save term templates from within the variable rent
agreement. Now, users can maintain a relatively small number of generic term templates
to use as the starting point for term detail defaults for variable rent agreements. The user
will select a generic term template then, if necessary, make a copy with changes specific
to the agreement.
4.1.1.26. Processing by Property
Property has been added as a parameter to the concurrent process for calculation of
variable rent so that users can now select agreements by property for batch calculation.
4.1.1.27. Improved Variable Rent Report
An improved report has been introduced for reporting calculated variable rent.

Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1 and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Property Manager 85
4.1.1.28. Early Termination of Rent Increase Agreements
The user can now end rent increase agreements as of any date, either directly or by
terminating a lease. The system will create adjusting and/or reversing items as necessary.
4.1.1.29. Extension of Rent Increase Agreements
The user can now extend the length of rent increase agreements, or have the system
extend the agreement automatically when a lease is extended.
4.1.1.30. Month-to-Month Roll Forward
If a lease is in Month-to-Month status, the user can choose to automatically extend the
rent increase agreement with each monthly roll-forward of the Month-to-Month
extension.
4.1.1.31. Index Multiplier
Users can now specify a multiplier to be applied for rent increases based on an index
value. The amount specified is multiplied times the calculated change in the index
amount and the rent is changed by the resulting value rather than by the actual index
change percentage.
4.1.1.32. Proration
The system will now prorate constraints on rent increase for partial years.
4.1.1.33. Term Length
One compounding rent increase calculation method has been changed so that rent
increase terms are created only for the length of the assessment period rather than to the
end of the lease. This is appropriate for this method so that users now do not need to
manually change the term lengths.
4.1.1.34. Include/Exclude Option
A system option has been introduced that controls how terms are selected to form the
basis for rent increases. With previous functionality, all terms of the selected type were
selected by default for inclusion and users would deselect terms as appropriate. An
organization now can choose whether terms are included or excluded by default. Users
will still have complete control at the individual agreement level.
4.1.1.35. Recurring Backbill Terms
An option has been introduced that controls whether backbill terms are created as one-
time terms or as recurring terms. If they are created as recurring terms, the transaction
date for all resulting schedules is set to the same date, which is the date that the term was
approved.
4.1.1.36. Rent Increase Report
An improved report has been introduced for reporting calculated rent increases.

4.1.1.37. Create Operating Expense Agreement


Users can create an operating expense agreement for any lease clause governing the
payment of rent based on landlord operating costs or common area maintenance costs.
The agreement captures the key aspects of these agreements in a structured way that
enables consistent recording of agreements across the portfolio and also supports the
consistent and accurate reconciliation and ‘desktop audit’ of landlord reconciliation
statements. Aspects of agreements that can be recorded in a structured way include:

Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1 and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Property Manager 86
• All common ways of determining the pro rata basis for expense recovery, such as
occupied area with floor
• Multiple pro rata bases within a single agreement
• Administration fees and anchor contributions
• Rules governing recovery of different expense groups or pools, within a single
agreement, such as whether a type of expense is subject to fees or cap
• All common methods for calculating caps and minimums
• Different reconciliation frequencies
• Whether rent is subject to tax
• Stop amounts
• How reconciliation credits can be applied
• Standard expense group naming, for cross-portfolio comparisons
• Critical date rules, such as audit period and statement and payment due dates
• Extensive notes, by category.
4.1.1.38. Enter and Maintain Estimated Payment Terms
If the agreement requires the tenant to make estimated payments based on landlord
budgets, the user can create the payment term through the Operating Expense Agreement.
Estimated payment amounts are often adjusted by landlords annually or at other intervals.
The user can enter new amounts through the Agreement and the system will create the
appropriate term, including a catch-up term if needed. A history of the changing amount
is thus captured and displayed, with percent change.
4.1.1.39. Reconciliation
Reconciliation is created for each agreement for each reconciliation period. The user can
record information from the landlord reconciliation statement and use the reconciliation
screens as a ‘workbench’ for doing a desktop audit of the reconciliation statement.
Features include:
• Key entry, from the landlord reconciliation statement, of information not
available to the user from other sources, such as actual landlord expenses.
• Optional entry of the same items, in an ‘Expected’ column, if the user
has information that conflicts with the values presented by the landlord.
• Presentation by the system of information that is known based on the Operating
Expense Agreement, previous payments, and prior reconciliations, such as
calculated cap amount, agreement fee percentage and amount already paid as
estimated payments.
• Optional entry of the same items in the ‘Statement’ column, if the
amounts on the landlord statement are not the same as expected.
• Detailed presentation of the operating expense obligation calculation, in side-by-
side layout, showing the values from the landlord statement next to the values
expected by the user. The calculation includes caps, fees, contributions,
occupancy adjustments and stops, pro rata share calculation, and prior payment
amounts.
• Presentations of the percent change over the prior period for each expense group,
the total landlord expense, and the tenant share of expenses.
• Printable version of the detailed reconciliation analysis with side-by-side
comparison.
• Simple creation of reconciliation payment term based on the bottom line of the
reconciliation analysis, or simply the payment due amount on the landlord
reconciliation statement.
• Flexible expense year dates, or reconciliation period dates, so that reconciliations
can be done at irregular intervals if needed.

Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1 and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Property Manager 87
• Reconciliation notes and direct access to notes related to the agreement and to
prior reconciliations.
• Maintenance of critical dates specific to each reconciliation, such as audit period
end date.
• Tracking of reconciliation and audit status, and users responsible for each.
• Preservation of prior versions of a single reconciliation.
4.1.1.40. Operating Expense Agreement Dashboard
A dashboard presents agreements, reconciliations, and related payment terms that are
likely to need attention, based on user-configurable selection criteria. The dashboard also
has advanced query capability for searching for agreements, reconciliations and/or
payment terms.
Users can select existing objects for view or update, or can initiate creation of new
agreements, reconciliations or payment terms from the dashboard.
4.1.2. Release 12.1.3+
4.1.2.1. Business Event Workflow and Status Update
A new business event approval workflow integrated with approvals manager and lease
status update is now available. A new approval 'Submitted' status has been introduced to
prevent the lease from being updated when the approval workflow has been initiated but
not yet approved or rejected.
4.1.2.2. Lease and Terms APIs
Lease and Terms API’s are now available to programmatically convert legacy system
leases and update existing leases details and payment terms into Oracle Property
Manager.
4.1.2.3. Variable Rent and Breakpoint APIs
The variable rent API’s provide a standard and consistent integration mechanism with
customer’s legacy variable rent systems. The API’s provide users with the ability to
create new or update existing variable rent agreements, to generate periods and
breakpoints, abatements and constraints for Variable Rent.
4.1.2.4. Index Rent APIs
New Index Rent API’s are available to create new or update existing index rent
agreements. Based on parameters provided by the user, the APIs will generate the index
rent details and periods for new and existing agreements.
4.1.2.5. Operating Expense Support for Advance Payments
Tenants create payments for operating expenses through the Oracle Property Manager
Operating Expense Dashboard to prevent duplicate payments and validate compliance
with the operating expense agreement terms. Now they can process one-time advance
payments to the landlord for prepaid expenses, such as estimated tax and insurance
premiums.
4.1.2.6. Normalization Support for Multiple Amendments and Partial Periods
Property Manager renormalizes lease terms when changes are made using either the edit
or amend functions. When users need to amend lease payments mid-month, Property
Manager prorates the normalized amount for the partial month using the selected
proration rule.

Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1 and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Property Manager 88
4.1.2.7. Variable Rent Agreement Invoice Date Derivation
A new profile option PN: Variable Rent Billing Date enables you to select the desired
logic to derive the billing period start date. This profile option applies only if you select
GL Calendar for a variable rent agreement. You can set the profile option to one of the
following:
Invoice Period Start Plus 30 Days: This option is the default value and it derives the
billing date as the invoice period start date plus 30 days. You can also leave the profile
option blank to use this option.
Last Date of Calendar Period: This option generates the billing date on the last date of
calendar period.
4.1.2.8. GL Date Derived from Period Name
You have options to derive GL date using the Transfer Normalized Lines to GL
concurrent program. Use the default value, Due Date, to derive the GL Date based on the
due date of the payment schedule. Optionally, you can select Period Name to derive the
GL Date based on the period name associated to the payment schedule.
4.1.2.9. Rent Normalization for Mid-Month Proration
Oracle Property Manager prorates normalized lease payments when the amendment
commencement date is in the middle of the month. For example, when your payments are
monthly and the lease begins mid-month, Property Manager applies the proration rule
you selected in the Details window to prorate the normalized amount for that month.

4.1.3. Release 12.2


4.1.3.1. Override Variable Rent Calculations Client Extensions
The Override Variable Rent Calculation Client Extension provides users the ability to
update and/or override the variable rent amount calculated by Oracle Property Manager.
4.1.4. Release 12.2.8
4.1.4.1. Support for ASC 842 / IFRS 16 for Property and Equipment
Starting in 2019, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) and the Financial
Accounting Standards Board (FASB) will require adherence to new accounting standards
for lessees (both property and equipment). To meet these new standards, lessees are
required to make significant changes in accounting and reporting by adding their leases to
their balance sheet as lease liabilities with corresponding right-of-use (ROU) assets.
To help address the new accounting requirements, you now have access to the following
capabilities:
• Contract Abstraction and Migration: User Interfaces(UIs) are provided to capture
contractual terms and conditions (attributes) and asset information for leases.
New UIs and Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are available to capture
and amend the contracts.
• Lease Accounting Transformation: A new accounting infrastructure provides the
ability to account for and amortize the liability and right-of-use asset. This new
infrastructure includes the ability to determine account codes based on sources
from the equipment lease contract available for subledger accounting rules
configuration.
• Global Lease Management: The solution supports Multi-GAAP with the ability
to account under existing GAAP, IFRS16, and ASC842 for the same contract.

Oracle E-Business Suite Releases 12.1 and 12.2 Release Content Document Oracle Property Manager 89
• Flexible Amortization Schedules: Amortization of the ROU asset and liability
using various options (e.g., 30/360, 4-4-5, daily calculations) for each GAAP is
provided.
• Support for Foreign Currency: The solution supports and accounts for multiple
currencies on the same contract, providing you the ability to manage your ROU
asset and liability in the entered and functional currencies.
• Enhanced Reporting: There are reports to help with managing the new lease
accounting and disclosures, including the Lease Analysis Report, Lease Detail
Report, Portfolio Detail Report, and Portfolio Summary Report. These reports
combine information from your Property lease portfolio to provide a single view
of all of your leases.
Note: If you have already licensed Oracle E-Business Suite Financials, you are granted a
restricted use of Property Manager Equipment leasing features to enable you to benefit
from the above features to address IFRS 16 / ASC 842.
