Subject: Re: [ubl] Data type qualification code lists for UBL 2.1

Just to close the loop on this. We discussed it on the PSC call yesterday.

The TaxScheme.ID and TaxScheme.Name are possibly poorly named, but there are no specific code lists for these. tred5305 and 5153 do not cover the requirements (we think 5305 is actually UK HMRC VAT codes). Most tax regimes issue these independently and change them quite frequently - they are localised. Some are not true codes either - just names.

In short, we found it simpler to refer to them as IDs not Codes - and this is now well established in the user community. So i propose we leave it as-is.

Also, i dont think there is a barrier to implementers using the code list validation against an ID element if they wish to.

I agree with you, Kees, they appear to be using the code lists in the identifier fields.

Which isn't "wrong" ... I was just expecting something else in my naïveté. I should stick to the angle brackets.

So I can add those two tax code lists to the special purpose directory:


... as a convenience for users. I'll get the values from:


... or their XSD equivalents if I can find them.

Actually, I found them quite quickly, but they appear to be based on D10B and not D11A, yet were only published two months ago:



I'm unsure why the HTML rendition would be D11A and the schema rendition only D10B. Tim said that a new set of files would be published in 6 to 8 weeks, so perhaps we'll see the D11A versions as XSD files then.

Thank you for this guidance, Kees!

2.3 Tax Category
Tax Category describes a subdivision of a Tax Scheme.
It may be the case that a tax has different rates for the same TaxCategory.ID. Since rates for categories differ between countries it is recommended that the tax percentage is also given.
- TaxScheme.ID = ‘VAT’
- TaxScheme.Name = ‘Value added tax’
- TaxCategory.ID = ‘S’
- TaxCategory.Percent = ‘5’ or ‘12’
Each rate for the Tax Scheme / Category combination must be calculated in a separate Tax Subtotal.
Tax category ID should be based on UN/ECE code list 5305.

Based on this description you can clearly see that they really use the ID element (because there is no other element that can be used)
