You can get used to anything, but is it really the best solution?
When closing a period, the VAT process is the final step, which means it’s performed under the greatest time pressure. Especially when not enough allowance was made during the implementation of Oracle EBS for meeting fiscal reporting requirements. You only have a short period of time in which to produce your VAT declaration. Many organisations even have to file multiple declarations.
The standard reports in Oracle EBS are inadequate for VAT summary statements and reconciliation with the GL. It also takes a lot of time to run these reports. In the end, the declaration is compiled using Excel.
