Purpose of the list

There are two versions of the Credit Interest work list

  • Function CDIW is the update version
  • Function CDIV is the view only version

The purpose of this work list is to show you all the cases where the credit / debit interest indicator has been set. And for these cases an event has occurred on COTAX which would normally have meant that the credit/debit interest charge would have been reviewed automatically but wasn’t because the CDII indicator is set.

You should consider whether you need to calculate and raise / amend credit / debit interest.

If you decide that the credit / debit interest position on the AP is correct you can delete the case from the work list. Otherwise you should calculate and raise the correct charge using Function RMIC (Raise Manual Interest Charge).

How often should the list be reviewed?

Who does what?

When are new entries added?

COTAX adds new entries to this work list daily.

  • The tax charge is amended
  • A payment is posted to the record with an effective date of payment earlier than the normal due date
  • A payment with an effective date of payment earlier than the normal due date is reallocated from the record
  • An effective date of payment is amended to earlier than the normal due date
  • The Quarterly Instalment Signal is amended
