0. INTRODUCTION

This specification provides the definition of the Tax control message (TAXCON) to be used in Electronic Data Interchange (EDI) between trading partners involved in administration, commerce and transport.


1. SCOPE


1.1. Functional definition

A Tax control message is used to enable the transmission of summary and control data for tax purposes. It is used to summarise and control the taxes (e.g. VAT) or duty which applies to a batch or batches of related messages.


1.2. Field of application

The Tax control message may be used for both national and international applications. It is based on universal practice related to administration, commerce and transport, and is not dependent on the type of business or industry.


1.3. Principles

The message meets control needs imposed by administrations and can be used by individual users for their own control purposes.

The summary and control information is sent by the sender of tax related messages so the recipient may:

  1. verify the integrity of the transmission, i.e. of the tax related messages sent.
  2. maintain an archive of summary and control data of the tax related messages for audit purposes.

2. REFERENCES

See UNTDID, Part 4, Chapter 2.3 UN/ECE UNSM - General Introduction, Section 1.


3. TERMS AND DEFINITIONS


3.1. Standard terms and definitions

See UNTDID, Part 4, Chapter 2.3 UN/ECE UNSM - General Introduction, Section 2.

0050 RFF, Reference

This segment identifies relevant references, such as the previous Tax control message between the trading partners.

0060 DTM, Date/time/period

This segment specifies the date and time of the reference in the preceding reference segment.
