Tax Settings



Here you can set your Tax Settings.



The Tax Settings form allows you to apply tax rates or Tax Groups that you have created. 


What are the benefits of this setting?


Applies taxes to Products/Labor Items.

When to use this setting?


When you want to tax Products/Labor Items.



There are two primary settings on this form.


Taxes are set at the catalog level for all taxable products and labor

This is the setting that is most commonly used and will apply the same Tax/Tax Group to all Products and the same Tax/Tax Group to all Labor. You set your Tax/Tax Group here and the tax rate will be applied to all Products and Labor Items that are marked as Taxable:



Taxes are set on each product and labor


This setting will allow you set the tax rates specifically for each Product/Labor Item. When this option is selected, there is no "Taxable" check box for Items, instead there are drop down menus for setting a Tax/Tax Group for the Item. For Products you have two fields, for Labor Items you have just the Labor Tax field:



There are two default Taxes in SIX, Tax and Labor Tax, and each is assigned a 0 value. To add/edit taxes, click the Manage Taxes link on the form:


The Manage Taxes form will open:

Tax Groups are useful if there are multiple taxes that need to be applied to Products and/or Labor:


Additional Information


If you wish to change the wording "Sales Tax" on our reports to something else, e.g. "VAT", there is a Report Setting for this.
