In addition to the accounts here, under Administration → Settings → Master data → Item Categories a chart of accounts can be created. Likewise you can create one directly in the product. If there is nothing registered in the product and Item categories, the accounts are taken from the system settings. The following hierarchy applies:
Accounts in the article
Accounts in item category
Accounts in the system settings
In other words: If an account is entered in the article, it will be drawn before the article category and before the system settings.
In the overview, there is a list of all created control sets. Via the button "+NEW" a new tax rate can be created.
The following data must be entered and saved for this purpose:
Enter tax rate as number → enter here e.g. "13" as number (would then be 13%)
Designation → e.g. "Tax AT normal"
Active → sets the control as selectable in relevant interfaces system-wide active (those that are no longer required can be deactivated)
The tax rate can be selected in the article. It should be noted that the accounts must be specified here in this article for the accounting export. (in each article with its own tax rate, if necessary also across the article category, if these articles are all in one category), otherwise, the default tax rate for the export will be used, which in DE would be e.g. "Domestic 19%".
In the cash book, "Accounting → Cash book" the individual tax rate can be selected. Do not forget to specify the account assignment that corresponds to the individual tax rate. The account assignment can be specified, for example, directly in the cash book at "Account or when posting the incoming payments.
The taxation is then visible in the cash book in the table (overview display) and in the accounting record. For the export to the accounting software, for the taxation (export to accounting software), only the correct account of the chart of accounts must be specified (for example (e.g. when posting the bank statements).
