Tax per period (Reports menu)

Parent Previous Next

The Tax report (Reports → Tax) does not include the Sales journal. It only includes Sales documents (i.e. Invoices an Credit notes). Transactions on other Batch types may cause similar errors.  

The reason for this, is the Consolidate balancing option on the Standard tab - F10:Setup on the Options for this batch screen. When setting up the batch, an information message  "Consolidating lines and using tax will mess up your tax report! Please make sure you do not use tax or do not consolidate lines!" will be displayed.

Click on the OK button and click on the F10:Setup icon and deselect (remove the tick) from the Consolidate balancing field on the Standard tab of the "Options for this batch" screen.

Balance the batch again.

You may print the Tax per period to check your tax transactions of posted batch transactions and posted documents (i.e. invoices, credit notes, purchase and supplier return documents).  

The Tax excluded and Tax amount in the Report total of the Tax report - Reference / Document no. report, should balance with the Total - Output tax – Input tax of the Tax per period report, if the same periods are selected.

It is recommended that these tax reports are printed and archived (PDF) for record and audit purposes.
