To add tax to an account payable, create the account payable and add the account payable lines. Then click the Calc Tax button. A new account payable line will be automatically added for each Tax Rate assigned to the Vendor account. Each tax line will be the sum of the Tax Rate times the Line Amount across all taxable lines.
For example, if the account payable had two lines, one taxable for $100 and one non-taxable for $1000, and the vendor account was set up for Australian GST Tax = 10%, the account payable would have three lines:
- One AP line with the taxable product for $100.
- One non-taxable AP line for $1000.
- One purchase tax line for $10.
