Accounts Payable Vendor Withholding

The Vendor Withholding module is an enhancement to J.D. Edwards Enterprise One  Software that addresses Puerto Rico’s local requirements for tax withholding of vendor invoices. This module has been specifically designed to comply with the Puerto Rico Internal Revenue Code that includes a provision requiring a withholding tax on payments to suppliers for services rendered in Puerto Rico.

A supplier sends you a bill

If you procure to pay, you match the invoice to either a receiving document or a purchase order.

You select the voucher for payment and generate withholding pay items.

Checks are issued for vendor as well as tax authority.

Withholding reports and annual tax return forms are generated and sent to tax authority.

When a supplier that is subject of a withholding sends you an invoice for payment, you must withhold the applicable tax from the vendor payment and pay the withheld amount to the tax authority. Regardless of whether you use procure to pay, you must enter a voucher into the system to pay the invoice. Then, you select the voucher for payment and process the tax withholding. Finally, you process the payment to the vendor and subsequently to the tax authority for the withhelds amounts.

System Integration

The Vendor Withholding module works with other J.D. Edwards Enterprise One systems to ensure that all withholding transactions are fully integrated into Accounts Payable.

The following systems integrate with the Vendor Withholding module as described:
Address Book Supplier master information identifies vendors subject to withholding and the applicable withholding percentage as well as the corresponding tax authority.
Accounts Payable pay items are generated for the withholding amount deducting the applicable amount from the vendor and applying it to the tax authority.
