Question around VAT Calculation


Active Member
Hi All,

I hope you can help me please.

I need to create one VAT code e.g : SAIG on the F4008, this code must however be able to accommodate more than one % of VAT. Now granted that in the P4008 you are able to have more than one line for VAT, I am just not sure of how this would actually work. I have added multiple % onto one code processed and entry but for the life of me I have no idea what % the system is using to calculate the VAT.

I have also set up the different % attached to the same VAT code and then set up the AAI with all the different GL offsets but that didn't work either.

I want to know if anyone has attempted to do this and if it is at all possible without having to create multiple codes for the different %.

I hope it makes sense. I searched the Knowledge Garden but I can't seem to find anything related to this.

Any help will be appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Kind regards,

Hi Misael

I have only ever seen one rate for one code for any time period. Eg - you can use the same code for a different rate once the old code has expired.

Why do you not want to use different codes and ghow would you diferentiate between rates if not by code?

If you are talking about Tax on Sales/Purchasing transactions, you can have different Item Tax rates either by Short Item OR using the hard coded values of N,Y,3,4,5,6,7,8 via the Item Branch Tax Codes. See Doc ID 1413283.1
