When transactions are posted, sales taxes are calculated and posted automatically to ledger accounts in the form. The default ledger posting groups are defined when you attach a ledger posting group to each sales tax code (or to each sales tax jurisdiction, if the company operates in the United Sates and uses this functionality).

Set up the sales tax ledger posting groups to precisely fit the needs of the company. You can set up individual ledger posting groups for each sales tax code; you can use one ledger posting group for all sales tax codes or you can assign a few ledger posting groups to the sales tax codes.


Before you can set up the ledger posting groups, the ledger accounts that are used for sales taxes in the form must be created.
