Overview PA 1184 - version 02

When an E-ticket is issued, an AUDIT and/or AGENT coupon may be printed to provide a hard-copy record of the ticket. These coupons include a Remittance Area that shows values applicable to the Eticket transaction. Although Remittance Area attributes vary based on BSP Area, the Remittance Area of the ticket may include details such as currency, cash and/or credit collection amount, commission and taxes.

BSP Remittance Area print routines do not currently allow more than 6 characters (including a decimal) to print in the tax field.

Worldspan will modify the Remittance Area print routines on BSP E-Ticket AUDIT and/or AGENT coupons to allow up to 7 characters (including a decimal) to print.

Additionally, data printed in the Remittance Area Tax field will be right-justified. Therefore, if a tax amount is greater than 7 characters, the least significant digit in the amount will be truncated.
