Reminder: Minimum Patching Baselines for E-Business Suite 11i Extended Support
will our Oracle Payroll function correctly after November 30 2013Yes it will.
Your system will continue to work as-is after November 2013 but Oracle Payroll will not work from a business perspective and thus you must upgrade before then unless Oracle extends 11i support. That is, Oracle will not release any further legislative updates and other essential patches so Payroll will not work properly. You must either upgrade to R12 or replace Oracle Payroll with another payroll solution.
- Oracle has a FAQ with the above Metalink document id
where they clearly state that
Oracle Payroll may not calculate taxes correctly subsequently to November 2013 for EBS 126.96.36.199
The reason they say MAY NOT because regularly US taxes and deductions are changed and since Oracle is not delivering patches to 188.8.131.52 subsequent to November 2013 all computations will not reflect any changes and updates to USA taxes.
This is not a good sign and I am sure my company cannot take the risk of wrong computations or my company cannot hope that there are no changes to US Taxes.
