Product Tax code & Account Codes

 

Product tax settings

The tax settings on products is dependent on the tax mode of the Brightpearl account:

Product tax settings in VAT mode

For VAT, products generally rule the tax rate which is used so each item is allocated a specific tax code which will be applied to sales and purchases. This would then only be overridden if the customer or vendor (supplier) record has been assigned a tax code.

Product tax settings in Sales Tax mode

In Sales Tax mode, tax is generally based on locations and so each product is set only as taxable or not taxable. When a product is set as taxable, the company default tax code is applied to sales and purchases. This would then be overridden if the customer or vendor (supplier) record has been assigned a tax code.

Product account (nominal) codes

Each product is assigned a sales, purchases (cost of sales) and stock account (nominal) code. These account codes are used for posting accounting when the products are purchased and sold.

The codes can be edited directly on products one-by-one or in bulk using the product import.
