Set up Tax Tables with Split Taxes

Hi everyone.

Recently I was asked how to set up tax table with split taxes.

ex: 5% GST (2.5% and 2.5%)

if you have man suppliers or customers with this type to of tax splitting you can set it up in the tax section.

if not I will show you how to enter it at the time of posting the invoice.

This tutorial will be in the classic mode as shown below.


Sage 50 Home Screen

From the top menu choose Setup – Settings – Company – Sales Taxes.

This is where you should be.

Settings Taxes

From here chose Tax Codes below.

in this screen you will record all the tax code you have followed by a description.

you can also choose to see the tax code in a specified journal. either payable or receivable.


Settings Taxes codes

No click on Taxes below.

here you will issue the codes a relative account number. one for payables and one for receivables.

Now that we are familiar with the Taxes and Taxes Code screen.

lets go back to Taxes Code screen and choose the GS Tax Split in order to give it a percentage for calculate.

Tax Code Details Do the same for the SG code and press OK.


Now lets test the taxes created.

Go to purchase journal, choose a vendor and test the tax codes.
