Tax Schedules


SalesPad does not calculate sales tax, but recognizes tax schedules predefined within Dynamics GP. If a customer and/or an item have been set up in GP as taxable, based on tax schedule and details, sales tax will be calculated and appear on a SalesPad sales document. Sales tax calculations may also come from a supported 3rd party integration such as CCH or AvaTax.*

Note: If the Use Shipping Method When Selecting Default Tax Schedule setting (Company Setup Options) is not selected in Dynamics GP, it must also be False in SalesPad.

Note: Although in Dynamics GP you can quickly change whether an item is taxed as needed, items set up as non-­-taxable are never taxed in SalesPad. This cannot be changed on the sales document.

In SalesPad, tax amount appears in the Totals section on the sales document, after the document is saved. The field cannot be edited:

If the sales document’s shipping method is a delivery type shipping method, tax is calculated based on the tax schedule on the Ship To address. If the shipping method is a pickup type shipping method, tax is calculated by the Site ID on the sales document header.

  2. On the customer contact card, the Tax Code field (Contact Addresses tab > select an address code to open the Contact card):

    To change the contact’s tax schedule, click the Tax Code field to access the dropdown.
