Extra Tax Customer Discounts

When you define VAT Codes using the setting in the Nominal Ledger, you can use flip B to specify that an additional tax, such as an environmental tax, is to be levied on sales. This additional tax is usually termed "Extra Tax".

If you have a Customer that is not to be charged Extra Tax, tick the No Extra Tax box on the 'Terms' card of the Contact record for the Customer. If you want to charge Extra Tax to a Customer but at a discounted rate, use this setting.

To work with this setting, ensure you are in the Sales Ledger and choose 'Settings' from the File menu or click the [Settings] button in the Navigation Centre. Double-click 'Extra Tax Customer Discounts' in the 'Settings' list: the 'Extra Tax Customer Discounts: Browse' window opens, listing the records previously entered. Double-click an item in the list to edit, or add a new record by selecting 'New' from the Create menu or using the Ctrl-N/⌘-N keyboard shortcut. When the record is complete, click the [Save] button in the Button Bar to save it.

VAT Code
Paste Special    VAT Codes setting, Nominal Ledger
Specify the VAT Code whose Extra Tax is to be discounted. You must enter a VAT Code, otherwise you will not be able to save the record.

The Description from the VAT Code record will appear here when you specify a VAT Code in the field to the left.

Paste Special    Customers in Contact register
Specify the Customer that is to receive the Extra Tax discount. You must enter a Customer, otherwise you will not be able to save the record. You can only enter one record for each VAT Code/Customer combination.

The Customer Name will appear here when you specify a Customer Number in the field to the left.

Paste Special    Choose date
If the Extra Tax discount is to apply from a particular date, enter that date here. The discount will only be used in Invoices whose date is the same as or later than the date specified here.

Discount %
Specify the Extra Tax discount here. For example, if the Extra Tax rate (Tax % in the VAT Code record) is 10% and you enter a 10% discount here, the Customer will be charged 9% Extra Tax. The discount will not be given if you have specified a VAT Code with no Extra Tax (i.e. one whose Tax % is empty or zero).
