Tax Codes

For US companies please see US Tax Codes.

For UK companies, Tax Codes represent those codes defined by HMRC for VAT on sales and purchases. The Tax Code is typically applied to Line Items on Transactional Documents such as Sales Invoices or Bills.

Each Tax Code has an associated Tax Rate, which defines the % rate at which VAT will be charged on Transactional Documents.

Note: For UK systems includes a set of pre-defined Tax Codes and associated rates in line with those issued by HMRC.
