Tax Calculation Method – this determines whether tax is calculated on each line item or on the whole invoice or quotes.  This must correspond to the tax calculation method used by the Accounting System Tradify is linked to.

Tax Rates

Tax rates are used to calculate sales/purchase tax on invoices, quotes or purchases. In most cases you will only need a single tax rate which Tradify creates for you, however, if the country or tax jurisdiction your business is operating in requires that you use multiple tax rates when invoicing, you can add additional tax rates to accommodate this.

NOTE: In some cases Tradify will not be able to determine the correct tax rate for you. Please ensure that the tax rate Tradify has created for you has been set up with the correct rate. Speak to your accountant if you are not sure what the rate should be.
