Tax Type

Use this field to select a tax type for the subcontract item.

  • 1-Sales– Tax amounts are payable to the vendor and are added to the invoice total. This tax amount is directly charged to Job Cost, Equipment, and GL.

  • 2-Use– Tax amounts are accrued, and will be paid at a later date to the appropriate State or Local taxing authority. Calculated tax amounts do not affect the gross or net balance due to the vendor. Instead, the transaction’s gross amount and tax amount is charged to Job Cost, Equipment, and GL account with an offsetting liability account as defined in HQ Tax Codes. Use the AP Tax Report to obtain an itemization of use tax amounts.

  • 3-VAT(Value Added Tax) – This tax is paid on goods and services at each stage of production or distribution, and is based on the value added at each stage. This tax is tracked in the GL and reduces the payment to a taxing authority through an Input Tax Credit (ITC). This tax is not directly expensed. This option is the default for Canadian and Australian companies (Default Country field, HQ Company Setup). Use the AP Value Added Tax Report to obtain an itemization of VAT amounts.

This field initially defaults as follows:

  • If the Use default tax code for subcontracts box is checked in JC Jobs and,

    • the active company's Default Country is 'US' (in HQ Company Setup), defaults as 1-Sales.

    • the active company's Default Country is other than 'US' (e.g Canada or Australia), defaults as 3-VAT.

  • If the Use default tax code for subcontracts box is unchecked, tax type defaults as null, regardless of country.

Note: Once you specify a code in this field and a tax type in the Tax Type field, the system displays the tax amount in the Tax Rate display field. The tax amount will also display on the Purchase Order when printed, and will also show when invoicing in AP.
