Subject: RE: [tax] Request from UBL for Comments


Thank you for your comments, but your examples do not fit what was intended
by the model.  The units here would be, to use your examples, "bushel" or
"peck" which certainly can be specified as codes (for example ISO 31 or ISO
1000).  The "beans" or "pickled peppers"  would be the category of goods to
which the tax structure applied.  This reference to the type of commodity
was what was intended by the association of the tax scheme to Tax Category.
This may be a misinterpretation on my part on what was intended by Tax
Category, but I tried to marry this up to what the TaxXML model refered to
as Item Tax Category which would fit this definition.  This is the sort of
assumption that will need some feedback.

All that being said, your comment did point out that the model does not
contain the unit quantity which should be explicit.  This will be added to
the model.

It appears that there is no way to specify the units of a line item other
than by putting it as text in the description.  So you'd have line items
such as "description='bushels of beans' quantity='5'", and
"description='peck of pickled peppers', quantity='1'", rather than a
description that would have a separate unit of measure (uom), e.g. "beans,
quantity 3, uom bushel" "peppers, quantity 1, uom peck".  That seems like a
surprising ommission.  Since that is the first thing I notice in 3 minutes'
scanning, I assume there may be other surprises in there.

      Subject: [tax] Request from UBL for Comments


      I would like to add an item the item Review UBL Small Business Subset
      Invoice to the agenda for tomorrow's meeting.  The SBS Invoice is a
      subset of the Invoice we have already provided comments on.  It isn't
      necessary to review these documents before tomorrow's meeting.

      This invoice was just approved by the UBL TC this morning.
