To create a Withholding Voucher, first follow the following steps:
- Run 1099 Suppliers Query to find a Withholding Supplier to use on a Voucher:
- Navigate to Reporting Tools > Query > Query Manager
- Enter Query Name: CTC_AP_1099_SUPPLIERS
- Select Search
- Select “HTML” link (New Window will open)
- Enter: Supplier Status: Approved
Location: Enter your Business Unit Location
- Select View Results
- Search for a supplier where Withholding = “Y”
- Note down Supplier ID (ex: V000015200)
- Use Withholding Supplier when creating a Voucher.
It is recommended to establish each user with the specific access associated with their job duties and is not recommended to simply copy one user's access to another user as this could lead to overallocation of access. However, there are situations where a group of staff within a single department all require the same access to perform similar work. In that case, the COPY function provides the ability to apply all Process Group definitions from one user to another without having to search and enter each Source Transaction and Process Group combination.
Please refer to the QRG 9.2 FSCM Security - Process Groups
