Author: David Haimes

I'm Senior Director in the Oracle Research and Development Organization, with close to 20 years working in various roles on the development of the Financial Management product suite.  Since the summer of 2016 my focus is exclusively on working with customers and longer-term design work, particularly around next-generation functional and technical architecture. My task is to figure out NOW what the financial management system of the next 3, 5 or more years should look like and start working toward it.  At the moment the majority of my time is spent working on Blockchain or Distributed Ledger Technologies (DLT), leading the effort for all of SaaS applications.  I'm also interested in AI, Machine Learning and new UX and interaction paradigms such as chat bots. I started out in Oracle UK and found my way out to Oracle's Redwood Shores, California HQ in May 2000.  My previous role was product owner for Fusion Accounting Hub, General Ledger, Intercompany and Legal Entity products in Oracle Fusion Financials and eBusiness Suite General Ledger. I have also worked on EMEA Globalizations, Federal and Public Sector Financials, XML Payments and a variety of projects on other products down the years.

  1. Hi

    Working in E-Business Suite and was wondering about intercompany invoicing across sets of books. Is that possible. I have heard various thoughts – most of which suggest no. Do you have any comments?

  2. Hi Patti,

    If you are trying to create a single invoice in Payables or Receivables that has distribution lines that hit accounts in more than one set of books then you are correct this is not possible in 11i or R12.

    You need to create a cross charge for the expense from one set of books to another and GIS (11i) or AGIS (R12) cna help with that.


  3. Maybe I wasn’t clear enough – we are considering implementing intercompany invoicing for 4 inventory orgs that are set up as follows:

    Set of books 1:
    Legal entity 1:
    Operating Unit 1:
    Inventory Org 101 & 201

    Set of books 2:
    Legal entity 2:
    Operating Unit 2:
    Inventory Org 251

    Set of books 2:
    Legal entity 3:
    Operating Unit 3:
    Inventory Org 161

    Inventory Org 161 ships to Inventory Org 101
    Inventory Org 251 ships to Inventory Org 201

    Can this be done thru intercompany invoicing? Also, volume is about 20-50 for each shipping/inventory org per day; is this volume too much overhead to manage?

    Thanks Patti
