Tax Code File Maintenance

Tax Code File Maintenance

Application Overview

 

When you are setting up your Customer file, you will be asked to enter a Tax Code for each customer who is taxable. This tax code will desig­nate what sales or other tax is to be charged when he purchases goods from you. For example, if you do business in California, there is a 6% sales tax on most items sold. 

 

You should define here all of the taxing methods that you plan to use with any of your customers so that you will be able to associate a Tax code with each customer who is to be taxed.

 

When you are entering Sales transactions by way of Sales & CR/DR Memo Processing, or when you enter customer orders in Customer Order Proces­sing, the amount of any sales tax to be charged will be calculated automatically using the tax percentage entered. You will, however, be able to override this calculated amount and enter the tax amount manu­ally if you should desire to do so.

 

The amount of sales and miscellaneous charges associated with each tax code is stored in each tax code record. These fields may be cleared by the Clear A/R Accumulators application.

 

A tax code must be created for non‑taxable sales since a tax code is required for all sales transactions.
