Sales Tax in Axapta 2009

Hello All,

We have to pull all the sales orders from external system into Axapta 2009. Each order has calculated tax as per there rules and policies. So, how to push sales tax into sales order in Axapta 2009 without axapta sales setup. I want to post the tax of each order into legder account without using complete sales tax setup because external system is calculating tax for each order.

Any ideas are appreciated.



Hi Sayeed,

In this case, you need to consider the following:

  1. The amount you need to import in the Sales Order should be exclusive of the tax already. It means that the value should be the actual value to be posted on the Inventory Acct, COGS, AR and Revenue. When u post the Sales Order, no need to select the sales tax group and item sales tax group.

  2. You need to have a separate file to import and post the tax value in AX.

  3. AX will not be able to generate tax related reports.

Hope this helps in your design.

Best Regards,
