When the SO (rental invoice order) is invoiced, the tax is calculated using Vertex. The Vertex solution is used only when US Sales Tax is relevant for the division, meaning that the Tax Method field= 2 or 3 in 'Company. Connect Division' (MNS100/G).

The Tax Code is retrieved according to the following hierarchy:

  • For sales lines (line type 1, 2, 6), the tax code is retrieved from 'Item. Open' (MMS001).
  • For rental lines (line type 5, 7, 8), the tax code is retrieved from 'Individual Item. Open' (SOS419).

The Tax Code can also be changed manually per line.
