AP Taxable - This is a new field in the Sale-Purchase Item Form and must be Checked when implementing this new Canadian Sales Tax tracking system.

AP National Tax - This is a new field in the Sale-Purchase Item Form and allows new control of managing Taxable Purchases made within Canada.

If either a GST or an HST Tax will ever be charged for this item, Check this box.

AP Local Tax - This is a new field in the Sale-Purchase Item Form and allows new control of managing Taxable Purchases made within Canada.

If a PST will ever be charged for this item, Check this box.

 

Then, update each Vendor record within the Tax Information section of the Edit View to include the appropriate Canada Tax Rates  

 

HelpFilesVendorFormEditView-TaxInformation

Vendor Form - Edit View - Tax Information section

 

a)Charge Tax - Check this box when this Vendor is charges any Tax.

b)Tax Computation - Using the Drop-Down Selection List provided, Choose the appropriate option (usually if paying an HST it would be National Tax Only, and if paying a GST it would be Local & National Tax).

c)Local Tax - If paying GST and the Vendor is also subject to a PST, enter that PST Rate here (see the Canada Tax Rate Chart information in the Canada Sales Tax chapter).

d)National Tax - Whether subject to GST or HST, enter the appropriate Rate here (see the Canada Tax Rate Chart in the Canada Sales Tax chapter).

e)Tax Calculation - Choose the appropriate Tax Calculation method:

National & Local Based on Net - (The default selection) - National & Local Based on Net is selected when Sales Tax is calculated on the Net Amount of all Taxable Items within an Invoice.  This is also the choice if there is no National Sales Tax at all.

National Based on Local Plus Net - National Based on Local Plus Net is selected when there is a National and a Local Sales Tax and the National Sales Tax is charged on the Gross Amount of all Items within an Invoice PLUS the amount of the Local Sales Tax which has been calculated on the Net Amount of the Invoice's Taxable Items.

Local Based on National Plus Net - Local Based on National Plus Net is selected when a National Sales Tax is charged on the Gross Amount of an Invoice and then a Local Sales Tax is calculated based on the sum of the Net Amount of all Taxable Items within an Invoice PLUS the amount of the National Sales Tax being charged.

 

You must also define as many PST Tax Rate records as needed, which will then be assigned (in the Receivables section of the Edit View on the Subscribers Form) to those Subscribers who are subject to a Provisional Sales Tax (PST) which corresponds to the Local Tax referred to above.
