Post only sales tax (VAT)

Posted on by 115


Is it possible in ax2012 to create a transaction in General journal that will present on the tax amount?

For example, let VAT be 5%, and te base transaction 100. The user is posting only the base amount, does not enter any VAY codes, so the transaction is posted on 100. Some time later, the error has been seen, and the user would like to post a transaction that will "cover" only the 5% VAT amount (with the proper codes so the VAT reports will be correct after entering this transaction)

    Hello Viktor,

    You can make a direct posting on a VAT account in a GL journal if you specify the sales tax code that shall be used for this posting. Also, you need to post the sales tax amount only. This works for special kind of taxes & import duties that you have in some countries.

    As I understand your example, this is not what is needed as there seems to be an error in posting. So, I would expect that you correct and reverse the erroneous posting first and then create a new journal to post things correctly. There is no shortcut fixing this.

    Best regards,

    You can post the vat amount separately but you will not be able to see it on the original invoice. So, try to cancel the first trans and re-enter it instead.
