Purchase Taxes

For Tax Accounts that you want to use in the tax templates, you must mention them as type “Tax” in your Chart of Accounts.

Similar to your Sales Taxes and Charges Template is the Purchase Taxes and Charges Master. This is the tax template that you can use in your Purchase Orders and Purchase Invoices.
